Original Key: E


Verse 1:
         E
When my heart runs dry
                B 
And there's no song to sing
          E 
No holy melody
             B
No words of love within
  G♯m7                     B 
I recall the height from which
     G♯m7                E
This fragile heart has slipped
Chorus:
           B          F♯ 
And I'll remember You
            G♯m7              E               B 
I will turn back and do the things I used to do
        F♯ 
For the love of You
           B          F♯ 
And I'll remember You
            G♯m7              E               B 
I will turn back and do the things I used to do
        F♯           E 
For the love of You
Verse 2:
You are my soul's desire
You are the hope within
You bring my heart to life
You make my Spirit sing
I recall the height from which
This fragile heart has slipped

WHEN MY HEART RUNS DRY
And there's no song to sing
No holy melody
No words of love within
I recall the height from which
This fragile heart has slipped

 
And I'll remember You
I will turn back and do
The things I used to do
For the love of You
Lord I'll remember You
I will turn back and do
The things I used to do
For the love of You


You are my soul's desire
You are the hope within
You bring my heart to life
You make my spirit sing
I recall the height from which
This fragile heart has slipped
