Intro: Abadd9Abadd9 chord EbEb chord BbBb chord

              Abadd9Abadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          EbEb chord
Should've burst through the door 
           BbBb chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Abadd9Abadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  EbEb chord                      BbBb chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord  BbBb chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Abadd9Abadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            EbEb chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     BbBb chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Abadd9Abadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       EbEb chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
BbBb chord
Comb back through my memory
             Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord     BbBb chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Abadd9Abadd9 chord    EbEb chord  BbBb chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         BbBb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Abadd9Abadd9 chord     EbEb chord
In red lipstick
     BbBb chord
With no-one to impress
                Abadd9Abadd9 chord     EbEb chord
And they're all laughing 
       BbBb chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord
But there was one thing missing
    BbBb chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Abadd9Abadd9 chord EbEb chord BbBb chord
    Abadd9Abadd9 chord EbEb chord BbBb chord

              Abadd9Abadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           EbEb chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         BbBb chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Abadd9Abadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        EbEb chord                       BbBb chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Abadd9Abadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      EbEb chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        BbBb chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Abadd9Abadd9 chord EbEb chord     BbBb chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         BbBb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Abadd9Abadd9 chord     EbEb chord
In red lipstick
     BbBb chord
With no-one to impress 
                Abadd9Abadd9 chord     EbEb chord
And they're all laughing 
    BbBb chord
And asking me about you
                        Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord
But there was one thing missing
    BbBb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Abadd9Abadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
EbEb chord
Streaming down your face in front of
BbBb chord 
Everyone you know?
Abadd9Abadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 EbEb chord
When the one who means the most to you 
BbBb chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

Interlude: Abadd9Abadd9 chord EbEb chord BbBb chord

              Abadd9Abadd9 chord     EbEb chord BbBb chord              
You should've been here, 
                      Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord  BbBb chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord
And it was like slow motion 
         BbBb chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Abadd9Abadd9 chord     EbEb chord
In red lipstick
     BbBb chord
With no-one to impress
                Abadd9Abadd9 chord             EbEb chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 BbBb chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Abadd9Abadd9 chord   EbEb chord
But there was one thing missing
    BbBb chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Abadd9Abadd9 chord    EbEb chord    BbBb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Abadd9Abadd9 chord    EbEb chord    BbBb chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Abadd9Abadd9 chord
You called me later 
               EbEb chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    BbBb chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Abadd9Abadd9 chord    EbEb chord   BbBb chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
