When the Fsus4 comes up, just play around with the 3 (Bb) and 4 (B) on the G string,
to get the hang on how Bic does it, and then the final F# strum on the "...be"


D
When I see you smile
   D/C#           Bm
It feels like I'm falling
             G
It's not for anybody else to know
A                                 F#m
The way your face could light the bitter dark of every street
         Bm
In every town I'll ever go
             G
It's not for anybody else to know
A
For anybody else to know

D
When I see you smile
D/C#               Bm (FILL1)             
First thing in the morning
          Gmaj7
It raises curtains on your lazy eyes
A                        G          F#     Fsus4          F#
Could it be that you and I have the greatest love to ever be
    Bm                   
How could this have ever been before?
             Gmaj7
It's not for anybody else to know
A                   
For anybody else to know

G           A
When Friday night arrives
             F#m              Bm
We'll let it pass outside the door
                 G
This is not for anybody else
A                        D
Anybody else to know

About the artist behind When I See You Smile Chords:

Briolette Kah Bic Runga MNZM (born 13 January 1976) is a New Zealand singer-songwriter whose first solo album, Drive, debuted at number one in the New Zealand charts, and has since become one of the highest-selling New Zealand artists of all time. Runga has also found success internationally in Australia, the Republic of Ireland and to some extent in the UK.

Regarding the pronunciation of "Bic": "'You say it Bec, rather than Bic,' explains New Zealand singer-songwriter Bic Runga. 'It's Chinese, it's a strange vowel sound which doesn't seem to translate in Australia. It means the colour of jade, which I suppose is just green.'"[1]

Both Elton John and Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page can be counted amongst her fans.[2]

In 2006, Runga was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the annual New Zealand Honours List.
