Here's Celine Dion's "If That's What It Takes" from
the Falling Into You album.  It's a simple song, the
best way to get it down would be to play along with
the CD.
         D                           Asus4
Verse:  You're the bravest of hearts

A               Bm
You're the strongest of souls

D                        A
You're my light in the dark

Bm         G
You're the place I call home

D
You can say it's alright

Em     
But I know that you're breaking up inside

Asus4             A        D
I see it in your eyes

A                     Bm
Even you face the night  afraid and alone

G                     A
That's why I'll be there...

E                       B
CHORUS:  When the storm rises up

F#M                     A
when the shadows descend  every beat of my heart

B              E                      B
every day without end   every second I live

F#m                         A
that's the promise I make  Baby that's what I'll give

B                 Cadd9    D
If that's what it takes   If that's what it takes

Verse2:You can sleep in my arms, you don't have to
explain. When your heart's crying out, baby whisper
my name.  'Cause I've reached out for you, when the
thunder is crashing  up above, you've given me your
love.  When you smile like the sun that shines
through the pain, that's why I'll be there.

Chorus2:When the storm rises up, when the shadows
descend, every beat of my heart, every day without
end.  I will stand like a rock, I will bend till I
break, till there's no more to give, if that's what
it takes.  I will risk everything, I will fight, I
will bleed, I will lay down my life if that's what
you need.  Every second I live, that's the promise I
make, baby that's what I'll give, if that's what it
takes.
        D7   G                           D
Chorus3:   Through the wind and the rain

Am
through the smoke and the fire

C           D7                G
when the fear rises up  when the wave's ever higher

D                      Am
I will lay down my heart  my body   my soul

C       D7         G
I will hold on all night and never let go

D                           Am
Every second I live  that's the promise I make

C
Baby that's what I'll give

D7
If that's what it takes....

About the artist behind If Thats What It Takes:

Dion had first gained international recognition in the 1980s after she won the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festival and the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest.[6][7] Following a series of French albums in the early 1980s, she signed on to Sony Records in 1986. During the 1990s, with the help of Angélil, she achieved worldwide success with several English and French albums, becoming one of the most successful artists in pop music.[8][9] However, in 1999 at the height of her success, Dion announced a temporary retirement from entertainment in order to start a family and spend time with her husband, who had been diagnosed with cancer.[10][9] She returned to the music scene in 2002 and signed a three-year (later extended to almost five years) contract to perform nightly in a five-star theatrical show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.[11][12]

Dion's music has been influenced by genres ranging from pop, soul, and rock to gospel and classical, and while her releases have often received mixed critical reception, she is renowned for her technically skilled and powerful vocals.[13][14][15] In 2004, after amassing 175 million in album sales, she was presented with the Chopard Diamond Award from the World Music Awards show for becoming the "Best-selling Female Artist in the World".[16][17] In April 2007 Sony BMG announced that Celine Dion had sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.[18]
