Intro: Dadd9Dadd9 chord AA chord EE chord

              Dadd9Dadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          AA chord
Should've burst through the door 
           EE chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Dadd9Dadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  AA chord                      EE chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord  EE chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Dadd9Dadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            AA chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     EE chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Dadd9Dadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       AA chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
EE chord
Comb back through my memory
             Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord     EE chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Dadd9Dadd9 chord    AA chord  EE chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord
And it was like slow motion 
         EE chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Dadd9Dadd9 chord     AA chord
In red lipstick
     EE chord
With no-one to impress
                Dadd9Dadd9 chord     AA chord
And they're all laughing 
       EE chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord
But there was one thing missing
    EE chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Dadd9Dadd9 chord AA chord EE chord
    Dadd9Dadd9 chord AA chord EE chord

              Dadd9Dadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           AA chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         EE chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Dadd9Dadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        AA chord                       EE chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Dadd9Dadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      AA chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        EE chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Dadd9Dadd9 chord AA chord     EE chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord
And it was like slow motion 
         EE chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Dadd9Dadd9 chord     AA chord
In red lipstick
     EE chord
With no-one to impress 
                Dadd9Dadd9 chord     AA chord
And they're all laughing 
    EE chord
And asking me about you
                        Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord
But there was one thing missing
    EE chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Dadd9Dadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
AA chord
Streaming down your face in front of
EE chord 
Everyone you know?
Dadd9Dadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 AA chord
When the one who means the most to you 
EE chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

You should've been here, 
                      Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord  EE chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord
And it was like slow motion

In red lipstick
     EE chord
With no-one to impress
                Dadd9Dadd9 chord             AA chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 EE chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Dadd9Dadd9 chord   AA chord
But there was one thing missing
    EE chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Dadd9Dadd9 chord    AA chord    EE chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Dadd9Dadd9 chord    AA chord    EE chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Dadd9Dadd9 chord
You called me later 
               AA chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    EE chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Dadd9Dadd9 chord    AA chord   EE chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
