Intro: Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord AbAb chord EbEb chord

              Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          AbAb chord
Should've burst through the door 
           EbEb chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  AbAb chord                      EbEb chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord  EbEb chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            AbAb chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     EbEb chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       AbAb chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
EbEb chord
Comb back through my memory
             Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord     EbEb chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord    AbAb chord  EbEb chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         EbEb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord     AbAb chord
In red lipstick
     EbEb chord
With no-one to impress
                Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord     AbAb chord
And they're all laughing 
       EbEb chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord
But there was one thing missing
    EbEb chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord AbAb chord EbEb chord
    Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord AbAb chord EbEb chord

              Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           AbAb chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         EbEb chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        AbAb chord                       EbEb chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      AbAb chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        EbEb chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord AbAb chord     EbEb chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         EbEb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord     AbAb chord
In red lipstick
     EbEb chord
With no-one to impress 
                Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord     AbAb chord
And they're all laughing 
    EbEb chord
And asking me about you
                        Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord
But there was one thing missing
    EbEb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
AbAb chord
Streaming down your face in front of
EbEb chord 
Everyone you know?
Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 AbAb chord
When the one who means the most to you 
EbEb chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

Interlude: Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord AbAb chord EbEb chord

              Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord     AbAb chord EbEb chord              
You should've been here, 
                      Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord  EbEb chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         EbEb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord     AbAb chord
In red lipstick
     EbEb chord
With no-one to impress
                Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord             AbAb chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 EbEb chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord   AbAb chord
But there was one thing missing
    EbEb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord    AbAb chord    EbEb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord    AbAb chord    EbEb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord
You called me later 
               AbAb chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    EbEb chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Dbadd9Dbadd9 chord    AbAb chord   EbEb chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
