Intro: Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord DbDb chord AbAb chord

              Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          DbDb chord
Should've burst through the door 
           AbAb chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  DbDb chord                      AbAb chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord  AbAb chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            DbDb chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     AbAb chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       DbDb chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
AbAb chord
Comb back through my memory
             Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord     AbAb chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord    DbDb chord  AbAb chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         AbAb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord     DbDb chord
In red lipstick
     AbAb chord
With no-one to impress
                Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord     DbDb chord
And they're all laughing 
       AbAb chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord
But there was one thing missing
    AbAb chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord DbDb chord AbAb chord
    Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord DbDb chord AbAb chord

              Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           DbDb chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         AbAb chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        DbDb chord                       AbAb chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      DbDb chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        AbAb chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord DbDb chord     AbAb chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         AbAb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord     DbDb chord
In red lipstick
     AbAb chord
With no-one to impress 
                Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord     DbDb chord
And they're all laughing 
    AbAb chord
And asking me about you
                        Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord
But there was one thing missing
    AbAb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
DbDb chord
Streaming down your face in front of
AbAb chord 
Everyone you know?
Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 DbDb chord
When the one who means the most to you 
AbAb chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

Interlude: Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord DbDb chord AbAb chord

              Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord     DbDb chord AbAb chord              
You should've been here, 
                      Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord  AbAb chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         AbAb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord     DbDb chord
In red lipstick
     AbAb chord
With no-one to impress
                Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord             DbDb chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 AbAb chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord   DbDb chord
But there was one thing missing
    AbAb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord    DbDb chord    AbAb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord    DbDb chord    AbAb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord
You called me later 
               DbDb chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    AbAb chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Gbadd9Gbadd9 chord    DbDb chord   AbAb chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
