Intro: Fadd9Fadd9 chord CC chord GG chord

              Fadd9Fadd9 chord                   
You should've been there, 
          CC chord
Should've burst through the door 
           GG chord                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Fadd9Fadd9 chord
And it would've felt like 
  CC chord                      GG chord
a million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord  GG chord
And I would've been so  happy


          Fadd9Fadd9 chord
Christmas lights glisten 
            CC chord
I've got my eye on the door 
     GG chord                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Fadd9Fadd9 chord
But the time is ticking
       CC chord                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
GG chord
Comb back through my memory
             Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord     GG chord
How you said you'd be  here 
         Fadd9Fadd9 chord    CC chord  GG chord
You said you'd, be  here


                     Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord
And it was like slow motion 
         GG chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Fadd9Fadd9 chord     CC chord
In red lipstick
     GG chord
With no-one to impress
                Fadd9Fadd9 chord     CC chord
And they're all laughing 
       GG chord
As I'm looking around the room
                        Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord
But there was one thing missing
    GG chord -once
And that was the moment I knew

Interlude:
    Fadd9Fadd9 chord CC chord GG chord
    Fadd9Fadd9 chord CC chord GG chord

              Fadd9Fadd9 chord
And the hours pass by,
           CC chord
Now I just want to be alone,
         GG chord
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Fadd9Fadd9 chord 
When there's something really wrong 
        CC chord                       GG chord
So they follow me down the hall 
          Fadd9Fadd9 chord 
And there in the bathroom 
      CC chord                 
I try not to fall apart 
        GG chord
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Fadd9Fadd9 chord CC chord     GG chord
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


                     Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord
And it was like slow motion 
         GG chord                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Fadd9Fadd9 chord     CC chord
In red lipstick
     GG chord
With no-one to impress 
                Fadd9Fadd9 chord     CC chord
And they're all laughing 
    GG chord
And asking me about you
                        Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord
But there was one thing missing
    GG chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Fadd9Fadd9 chord
What do you say when tears are 
CC chord
Streaming down your face in front of
GG chord 
Everyone you know?
Fadd9Fadd9 chord
And what do you do 
                 CC chord
When the one who means the most to you 
GG chord -once
Is the one who didn't show?

You should've been here, 
                      Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord  GG chord
And I would've been so  happy


                     Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord

In red lipstick
     GG chord
With no-one to impress
                Fadd9Fadd9 chord             CC chord
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 GG chord
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Fadd9Fadd9 chord   CC chord
But there was one thing missing
    GG chord 
And that was the moment I knew


Fadd9Fadd9 chord    CC chord    GG chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Fadd9Fadd9 chord    CC chord    GG chord
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


              Fadd9Fadd9 chord
You called me later 
               CC chord                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    GG chord 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Fadd9Fadd9 chord    CC chord   GG chord.....
And that was the moment I knew
