Intro: Cadd9Cadd9 chord GG chord DD chord

              Cadd9Cadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          GG chord
Should've burst through the door 
           DD chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Cadd9Cadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  GG chord                      DD chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord  DD chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Cadd9Cadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            GG chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     DD chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Cadd9Cadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       GG chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
DD chord
Comb back through my memory
             Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord     DD chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Cadd9Cadd9 chord    GG chord  DD chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord
And it was like slow motion 
         DD chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9Cadd9 chord     GG chord
In red lipstick
     DD chord
With no-one to impress
                Cadd9Cadd9 chord     GG chord
And they're all laughing 
       DD chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord
But there was one thing missing
    DD chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Cadd9Cadd9 chord GG chord DD chord
    Cadd9Cadd9 chord GG chord DD chord

              Cadd9Cadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           GG chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         DD chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Cadd9Cadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        GG chord                       DD chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Cadd9Cadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      GG chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        DD chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Cadd9Cadd9 chord GG chord     DD chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord
And it was like slow motion 
         DD chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9Cadd9 chord     GG chord
In red lipstick
     DD chord
With no-one to impress 
                Cadd9Cadd9 chord     GG chord
And they're all laughing 
    DD chord
And asking me about you
                        Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord
But there was one thing missing
    DD chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Cadd9Cadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
GG chord
Streaming down your face in front of
DD chord 
Everyone you know?
Cadd9Cadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 GG chord
When the one who means the most to you 
DD chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

You should've been here, 
                      Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord  DD chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord
And it was like slow motion

In red lipstick
     DD chord
With no-one to impress
                Cadd9Cadd9 chord             GG chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 DD chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Cadd9Cadd9 chord   GG chord
But there was one thing missing
    DD chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Cadd9Cadd9 chord    GG chord    DD chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Cadd9Cadd9 chord    GG chord    DD chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Cadd9Cadd9 chord
You called me later 
               GG chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    DD chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Cadd9Cadd9 chord    GG chord   DD chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
