C	     F3   F          C          E7/G#  E7/B 
I am here to tell you we can never meet again 
Am  	       C/G	   F               G7   Gdim 
Simple really, isn't it, a word or two and then 
  C		  F3  F            C		 E7/G#  E7/B 
A lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when 
    Am             C/G 		  F                  C/E 
You think of me or speak of me or wonder what befell 
    Dm			           G7          Gdim 
The someone you once loved so long ago so well 
C	     F3   F	       C		E7/G#  E7/B 
Never wonder what I'll feel as living shuffles by 
Am		  C/G        F          G7    Gdim 
You don't have to ask me and I need not reply 
C            F3 F	     C		  E7/G#  E7/B  
Every moment of my life from now until I die 
Am		C/G		 F       	   C/E  
I will think or dream of you and fail to understand 
      Dm			     G7          Gdim 
How a perfect love can be confounded out of hand 
      C 		   G/B 
Is it written in the stars 
       Am		     C/G 
Are we paying for some crime 
	Am7/F   		Dm/E 
Is that all that we are good for 
       Dm		     G 
Just a stretch of mortal time 
	C		 G/B 
Is this God's experiment 
   Am			C/G 
In which we have no say 
   Am7/F		     Dm/E 
In which we're given paradise 
    Dm   G         C  F3 F  C  F3 F 
But only for a day 
C	       F3 F              C                E7/G# E7/B 
Nothing can be altered, there is nothing to decide 
Am	      C/G                 F	           G7 Gdim 
No escape, no change of heart, no anyplace to hide 
C		 F3 F           C	     E7/G# E7/B 
You are all I'll ever want, but this I am denied 
Am		C/G		  F			   C/E 
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts, I wish I'd never learned 
	Dm			       G7	     Gdim 
What it is to be in love and have that love returned 
C  F3 F  C  F3 F  C
