††† Em - Am - Em - B7


†† Em†††††††† †††††††††††††C††††††††† ††††D†††††††††††††††† †††††G

1. †††††It seemed to be like the perfect thing for you and me,

Em††††††† C†† †††††††††††††††††††††D††††††††††† †††G

††† it's so ironic you're what I pictured you to be.

Em†††††††††† ††††††††††C†††††††† ††††††D††††††††††††††† G

††† But there are facts in our lives we can never change,

Em†††††††††† ††††††††C††††††††††† ††††††††B7

††† just tell me that you understand and feel the same !


Em†† †††††††††††††††††C††††††† †††††††††††D††††††††† ††††††G

2. †††This perfect romance that I've created in my mind,

Em†††††††††† †††††C††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††† ††††††††G

††† I'd live a thousand lives, each one with you right by my side.

Em†††††††††† ††††††C††††† †††††††††††††††††††††D††††††††††††††† †††††††††G

††† But yet we find ourselves in a less than perfect circumstance,

Em†††††† †††††††C†††††††††††† †††††††††B7

††† and so it seems like we'll never have the chance.


†††††††††† Em†††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Am

Ain't it funny, how some feelings you just can't deny,

††††† ††††††††††B7††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††Em

and you can't move on, even though you try ?

††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††Am

Ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel ?

††††††††† B7

Oh, I wish this could be real !

††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††Am

Ain't it funny, how a moment could just change your life,

††††††† ††††††††B7††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††Em

and you don't want to face what's wrong or right ?

†††††††††††† Em†††††† ††††††††††††††††††††Am

Ain't it strange, how fate can play a part

††††††††††† B7

in the story of your heart ?


†† Em†††††††† ††††††††††††††C††††††† ††††††D†††††††††††††† ††††G

3. †††††Sometimes I think that a true love can never be,

Em††††††††††† C†††††† ††††††††††††††††D†††††††††††††† ††††††G

††† I just believe that somehow it wasn't meant for me.

Em†††††††††† ††††††††††C††† †††††††D†††††††††† ††G

††† Life can be cruel in a way that I can't explain,

Em††††††† †††††††††††C†††††††††††††††† †††††B7

††† and I don't think that I could face it all again.


†† Em†††††††††† †††††C†††††††† ††††††††††††††††††D††††††††††††††† †††††††G

4. †††††I barely know you, but somehow I know what you're about,

Em††††††††† ††C††††††††† ††††††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††† G

††† a deeper love I've found in you and I no longer doubt.

Em††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††C†††††† ††††††††D††††††††† †††††††††G

††† You've touched my heart and it altered every plan I've made,

Em†††† †††††††††††††C†††††††††††† ††††††B7

††† and now I feel that I don't have to be afraid.




†† Am††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††Em††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††B7

+ †††††I locked away my heart, but you just set it free,

††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††Am

††† emotions I felt held me back from what my life should be.

†††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††Em††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††B7

††† I pushed you far away and yet you stayed with me,

††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††B7

††† I guess this means that you and me were meant to be.
