Intro: Eadd9Eadd9 chord BB chord GbGb chord

              Eadd9Eadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          BB chord
Should've burst through the door 
           GbGb chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Eadd9Eadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  BB chord                      GbGb chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord  GbGb chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Eadd9Eadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            BB chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     GbGb chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Eadd9Eadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       BB chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
GbGb chord
Comb back through my memory
             Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord     GbGb chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Eadd9Eadd9 chord    BB chord  GbGb chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord
And it was like slow motion 
         GbGb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Eadd9Eadd9 chord     BB chord
In red lipstick
     GbGb chord
With no-one to impress
                Eadd9Eadd9 chord     BB chord
And they're all laughing 
       GbGb chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord
But there was one thing missing
    GbGb chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Eadd9Eadd9 chord BB chord GbGb chord
    Eadd9Eadd9 chord BB chord GbGb chord

              Eadd9Eadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           BB chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         GbGb chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Eadd9Eadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        BB chord                       GbGb chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Eadd9Eadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      BB chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        GbGb chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Eadd9Eadd9 chord BB chord     GbGb chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord
And it was like slow motion 
         GbGb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Eadd9Eadd9 chord     BB chord
In red lipstick
     GbGb chord
With no-one to impress 
                Eadd9Eadd9 chord     BB chord
And they're all laughing 
    GbGb chord
And asking me about you
                        Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord
But there was one thing missing
    GbGb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Eadd9Eadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
BB chord
Streaming down your face in front of
GbGb chord 
Everyone you know?
Eadd9Eadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 BB chord
When the one who means the most to you 
GbGb chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

              Eadd9Eadd9 chord     BB chord GbGb chord              
You should've been here, 
                      Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord  GbGb chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord

In red lipstick
     GbGb chord
With no-one to impress
                Eadd9Eadd9 chord             BB chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 GbGb chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Eadd9Eadd9 chord   BB chord
But there was one thing missing
    GbGb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Eadd9Eadd9 chord    BB chord    GbGb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Eadd9Eadd9 chord    BB chord    GbGb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Eadd9Eadd9 chord
You called me later 
               BB chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    GbGb chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Eadd9Eadd9 chord    BB chord   GbGb chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
