Intro: Gadd9Gadd9 chord DD chord AA chord

              Gadd9Gadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          DD chord
Should've burst through the door 
           AA chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Gadd9Gadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  DD chord                      AA chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord  AA chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Gadd9Gadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            DD chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     AA chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Gadd9Gadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       DD chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
AA chord
Comb back through my memory
             Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord     AA chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Gadd9Gadd9 chord    DD chord  AA chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord
And it was like slow motion 
         AA chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Gadd9Gadd9 chord     DD chord
In red lipstick
     AA chord
With no-one to impress
                Gadd9Gadd9 chord     DD chord
And they're all laughing 
       AA chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord
But there was one thing missing
    AA chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Gadd9Gadd9 chord DD chord AA chord
    Gadd9Gadd9 chord DD chord AA chord

              Gadd9Gadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           DD chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         AA chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Gadd9Gadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        DD chord                       AA chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Gadd9Gadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      DD chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        AA chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Gadd9Gadd9 chord DD chord     AA chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord
And it was like slow motion 
         AA chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Gadd9Gadd9 chord     DD chord
In red lipstick
     AA chord
With no-one to impress 
                Gadd9Gadd9 chord     DD chord
And they're all laughing 
    AA chord
And asking me about you
                        Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord
But there was one thing missing
    AA chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Gadd9Gadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
DD chord
Streaming down your face in front of
AA chord 
Everyone you know?
Gadd9Gadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 DD chord
When the one who means the most to you 
AA chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

You should've been here, 
                      Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord  AA chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord

In red lipstick
     AA chord
With no-one to impress
                Gadd9Gadd9 chord             DD chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 AA chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Gadd9Gadd9 chord   DD chord
But there was one thing missing
    AA chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Gadd9Gadd9 chord    DD chord    AA chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Gadd9Gadd9 chord    DD chord    AA chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Gadd9Gadd9 chord
You called me later 
               DD chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    AA chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Gadd9Gadd9 chord    DD chord   AA chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
