Intro: Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord FF chord CC chord

              Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          FF chord
Should've burst through the door 
           CC chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  FF chord                      CC chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord  CC chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            FF chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     CC chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       FF chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
CC chord
Comb back through my memory
             Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord     CC chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord    FF chord  CC chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord
And it was like slow motion 
         CC chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord     FF chord
In red lipstick
     CC chord
With no-one to impress
                Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord     FF chord
And they're all laughing 
       CC chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord
But there was one thing missing
    CC chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord FF chord CC chord
    Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord FF chord CC chord

              Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           FF chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         CC chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        FF chord                       CC chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      FF chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        CC chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord FF chord     CC chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord
And it was like slow motion 
         CC chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord     FF chord
In red lipstick
     CC chord
With no-one to impress 
                Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord     FF chord
And they're all laughing 
    CC chord
And asking me about you
                        Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord
But there was one thing missing
    CC chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
FF chord
Streaming down your face in front of
CC chord 
Everyone you know?
Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 FF chord
When the one who means the most to you 
CC chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

Interlude: Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord FF chord CC chord

              Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord     FF chord CC chord              
You should've been here, 
                      Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord  CC chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord

In red lipstick
     CC chord
With no-one to impress
                Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord             FF chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 CC chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord   FF chord
But there was one thing missing
    CC chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord    FF chord    CC chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord    FF chord    CC chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord
You called me later 
               FF chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    CC chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Bbadd9Bbadd9 chord    FF chord   CC chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
