B*   G#m          B       G#m
 One day it`s the morning 
B        G#m          F#        E   (fill)
 Another day it`s the afternoon light 
B         G#m           B       G#m
 One day, baby, without warning 
B    G#m         F#                E          C#m

E         C#m
Back to Rome 
E                             C#m
 Don`t you wish that we could stay?
