And never find the love I found in you

Chorus 1:

And when I speak of you
Abm7 Abm7/Db Abm/Db
I see envy in other men's eyes
Gb/Db Ebm
And I'm well aware
Abm7 Abm7/Db Abm/Db
Of what's on their mind
Abm7 Gb/Bb
They pretend to be my friend
Dbsus4 Db
When all the time (sweet Bernadette)
Abm7 Gb/Bb Dbsus4 Db
They long to persuade you from my side (sweet Bernadette)
Abm7 Bbm
They'd give the world and all they own
Dbsus4 Db
For just one moment we have known

Verse 2:

Bernadette
They want you because
Of the pride that it gives
But Bernadette
I want you because
I need you to live

Chorus 2:

But while I live only to hold you
Some other men, they long to control you
But how can they control you, Bernadette (sweet Bernadette)
When they cannot control themselves, Bernadette (sweet Bernadette)
From wanting you, needing you
But darling

You belong to me
I tell the world
You belong to me, I tell the world
You're the soul of me
I tell the world
You're a part of me, Bernadette

Been longing for

In you I have what other men are longing for
All men need someone to worship and adore
That's why I treasure you and place you high above
For the only joy in life is to be loved
So whatever you do, Bernadette

You're the soul of me
More than a dream, you're clear to me
And Bernadette
You mean more to me
Than a woman was ever meant to be
