Verse 1:

     D                       G                      
You take your coat off and throw it on the floor
  D                          G
Night has built you into my arms once more
     D                       G
You feel so familiar as you get into bed
   D                   G
Cigarette smoke halo around your head

CHORUS:                        

      C            D                
You lean over and kiss me so sweet...       
     Em             C
Ahhhaaaa    aaaahhhaaa
                  D                 Em               
I could lay with you like this for hours...    
            C
Hours and hours
            D                   G       C9 G      C9 G
Building a summer home in your arms

Verse 2:    

   D                            G			
I kiss you with the languid adoration of slumber
 D                    G
Landin'  random  as  lotto numbers
 D                               G
One for each eye, and,  oops,   one on your nose
     D                    G
And ten for each of your cute little toes

REPEAT CHORUS:   Em  on  “arms”   this time!!!! 

Bridge:

Bm                   C
   Am I crazy, do I talk too much?
Bm                                 C
   Sometimes I think your silence is a crutch
Bm                    C
   Am I mad, are you married?
Bm                         C
   Oh Jesus this love stuff can be scary
         D                                  
But so sweet... So sweet     
              G       C9 G      C9 G
Here in your arms

Verse 3:

       D                     G			
I'm a bit of a mess and I'm gone too much
      D                       G
But when I'm away it's you I long to touch
     D                             G
And certain things remind me it's such a special treat
     D                        G
As these little things that bring you to me

LAST CHORUS:

     C             D                                  
You lean over and kiss me so sweet...	    
    Em             C
Ahhhaaaa    aaaahhhaaa
                  D                 Em    
I could lay with you like this for hours...	
            C
Hours and hours...
            D                   Em
Building a summer home in your arms
                C                   D
I'm building a summer home in your arms
                      G     C9 G     C9 G      C9 G
Built with all your charms

Nobody wake me if this is a dream
I’m gonna build myself a summer home
Build myself a summer home in your arms
Build myself a summer home in your arms
Built with all your charms
