Intro: Aadd9Aadd9 chord EE chord BB chord

              Aadd9Aadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          EE chord
Should've burst through the door 
           BB chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Aadd9Aadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  EE chord                      BB chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord  BB chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Aadd9Aadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            EE chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     BB chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Aadd9Aadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       EE chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
BB chord
Comb back through my memory
             Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord     BB chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Aadd9Aadd9 chord    EE chord  BB chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord
And it was like slow motion 
         BB chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Aadd9Aadd9 chord     EE chord
In red lipstick
     BB chord
With no-one to impress
                Aadd9Aadd9 chord     EE chord
And they're all laughing 
       BB chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord
But there was one thing missing
    BB chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Aadd9Aadd9 chord EE chord BB chord
    Aadd9Aadd9 chord EE chord BB chord

              Aadd9Aadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           EE chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         BB chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Aadd9Aadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        EE chord                       BB chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Aadd9Aadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      EE chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        BB chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Aadd9Aadd9 chord EE chord     BB chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord
And it was like slow motion 
         BB chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Aadd9Aadd9 chord     EE chord
In red lipstick
     BB chord
With no-one to impress 
                Aadd9Aadd9 chord     EE chord
And they're all laughing 
    BB chord
And asking me about you
                        Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord
But there was one thing missing
    BB chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Aadd9Aadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
EE chord
Streaming down your face in front of
BB chord 
Everyone you know?
Aadd9Aadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 EE chord
When the one who means the most to you 
BB chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

Interlude: Aadd9Aadd9 chord EE chord BB chord

              Aadd9Aadd9 chord     EE chord BB chord              
You should've been here, 
                      Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord  BB chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord
And it was like slow motion 
         BB chord                 
Standing there in my party dress

In red lipstick
     BB chord
With no-one to impress
                Aadd9Aadd9 chord             EE chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 BB chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Aadd9Aadd9 chord   EE chord
But there was one thing missing
    BB chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Aadd9Aadd9 chord    EE chord    BB chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Aadd9Aadd9 chord    EE chord    BB chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Aadd9Aadd9 chord
You called me later 
               EE chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    BB chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Aadd9Aadd9 chord    EE chord   BB chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
