[Verse 1]
G G C C
I wish I was a flame dancing in a candle
G G C C
Lighting up your living room high on the mantle
Am Am C C
I could bring some romance without any scandal
G G C C G G
And then when you were done you'd just put me out

G G C C
I wish I was a tune you sang in your kitchen
G G C C
Putting your groceries away and washing your dishes
Am Am C C
I could float around your tongue and ease the tension
G G C C G G
And then when you were done you'd just quiet down

[Chorus]
C C
But if I get too close
G G
Will the magic fade?
Bm Bm Em Em
Would I turn you off or away?
C C
If I pull you in
G G
Would I push you out
Bm Bm C C
Of something here you care about?
Am Am C C
Well I'm at a loss for what to do
D D D7 D7
But I'm drawn to you

[Verse 2]
G G C C
I wish I was a sweater wrapped around your hips
G G C C
And when it got too cold into me you'd slip
Am Am C C
And when the sun came back you would hang me up
G G C C G G
And I would watch you while you undress

[Chorus]
C C
But if I get too close
G G
Will the magic fade?
Bm Bm Em Em
Would I turn you off or away?
C C
If I pull you in
G G
Would I push you out
Bm Bm C C
Of something here you care about?
Am Am C C
Well I'm at a loss for what to do
D D D7 D7
But I'm drawn to you

[Interlude]
C C G G
C C G G
C C G G
C C G G
Am Am C C

[Verse 3]
G G
I'm not a song
C C
I am not a sweater
G G
I'm not a fire
C C
I am something better
Am Am C C
I'm a man in love writing you a letter
G G
Will you take it
C C
Will you keep it
Am Am
Will you read it
C C
Believe it
G G
I love you
C C
I'm sorry.
