Intro: Eb  Eb  Cm  Ab  Eb 

And it starts sometime around midnight                   
       Cm                            Ab                    Eb 
Or at least that’s when you lose yourself for a minute or two
As you stand under the bar lights
           Cm                             Ab                     Eb 
While the band plays some song, about forgetting yourself for a while
          Cm                         Ab              Eb 
And the piano's this melancholy soundtrack for her smile
      Cm            - break -           Ab                            
That white dress she's wearing, you haven’t seen her for a while

But you know, that she’s watching
        Cm                             Ab                       Eb 
She’s laughing, she’s turning. She’s holding her tonic like a cross
     Cm                               Ab                        Eb 
The room's suddenly spinning, as she walks up and asks how you are
            Cm                         Ab                         Eb 
So you can smell her perfume, you can see her lying naked in your arms

And so there’s a change in your emotions
               Cm                      Ab                      Eb 
When all these memories come rushing, like feral waves to your mind
          Cm                      Ab                     Eb 
Of curl of your bodies, like two perfect circles entwined
             Cm                         Ab                      Eb 
So you feel hopeless and homeless, and lost in the haze of the wine

Then she leaves with some one you don't know
        Cm                           Ab                       Eb 
But she makes sure you saw her, she looks right at you and bolts
        Cm                             Ab                        Eb 
As she walks out the door, your blood boiling, your stomach in ropes
       Cm               - break -                Ab           
Oh and when your friends say, "what is it you look like you’ve seen a ghost"

Bridge: Eb ... Ab Bb Cm ... Ab Bb Eb - or Ab Bb - x3 - Bbsus2 -

Then you walk under the streetlights                 
           Cm                         Ab                     Eb 
And you’re too drunk to notice, that everyone is staring at you
                Cm                          Ab                      Eb 
You just don’t care what you look like, the world is falling around you

you just have to see her
you just have to see her
you just have to see her
you just have to see her
you just have to see her

you know that she'll break you in two....
