Verse:
I knew the time had to come, When I'd be held un -der your thumb.
I'm like a pawn in your hand, Moved and com -pelled, at your com -mand.
Whe -ther it's for bad or for good, I would nev -er change if I could.
 
Chorus:
May -be I'm right, and may -be I'm wrong, And may -be I'm weak, and may -be I'm strong:
But Nev -er -the -less, I'm in Love With You.
May -be I'll win and may -be I'll lose, And may -be I'm in; for cry -in' the blues:
But Nev -er -the -less, I'm in Love With You
Some -how I know at a glance, the ter -ri -ble chanc -es I'm tak -ing:
Fine at the start, then left with a heart that is break -ing.
May -be I'll live a life of re -gret And may -be I'll give much more than I'll get;
But, Nev -er -the -less, I'm in Love With You.
