The Greatest Gift

A-B-A-B Form Key of Gm
Intro - (Chord Progression: F1-D-Bb or VII first inversion -v-III)
Verse 1 - (Chord Progression: G-Eb-F, G-Eb-Bb-F or i-VI-VII, i-VI-III-VII)
As the day passes by, and the world clogs my mind
Everything seems so empty. Everyone seems so blind
But you come to save me. You’re a welcome escape.
Whenever you’re with me, my world takes on a new shape.
Chorus - (Chord Progression: G-Eb-Bb-F, G-Eb-D-C-D or i-VI-III-VII, i-VI-v-iv-v)
Whenever I need you, you’re always around.
When I get depressed, you help me off the ground.
When there’s pain inside, your smile clears my mind.
You’re the greatest gift ever given to me.

Verse 2 - (Chord Progression: G-Eb-Bb-F, G-Eb-Bb-F or i-VI-III-VIII, i-VI-IIII-VII)
When no one will listen, and nobody cares
You’re the first person I call on, because you’re always there.
Whenever I feel like it’s all falling apart.
You pick up the pieces, to my broken heart.
