    C - Am - F - G 

 

                   C                     Am

1. Looking back over the years

         F                          G                        C

    of all the things I've always meant to say,

                 Am                         F        - G

    but the words didn't come easily.

                    C                               Am

    So many times through empty fears,

        F                       G                             C

    of all the nights I tried to pick up the phone,

           Am                               G

    so scared of who might be answering.

 

       F   G                                              C

+  You try to live your life from day to day

            Am     G        F                      Am

    but seeing you across the room tonight

                               G    - C - G

    just gives me away.

 

                     G             F                     Dm                     G

'Cause the heart won't lie, sometimes life gets in the way,

                  Em                               Am                         G

but there's something that won't change, I know I've tried.

          G              F                Dm            G

The heart won't lie, you can live your alibi.

                 C                        Am                      F        - G

Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise ?

                          C - Am    - F - G

The heart won't li.........e.  

 

      C                Am

2. Long after tonight,

            F                         G                            C

    will you still hear my voice through the radio ?

               Am                          F              - G

    Old desires make us act carelessly.

                          C                    Am                   F                     G

    Long after tonight, after the fire, after the scattered ashes fly

                                           C              Am

    through the four winds blown and gone.

 

 

 

 

 

                             G

    Will you come back to me ?

 

       F   G                                              C

+  You try to live your life from day to day

            Am     G        F                      Am

    but seeing you across the room tonight

                               G    - C - G

    just gives me away.

'Cause the heart won't lie, sometimes life gets in the way,

                  Em                               Am                         G

but there's something that won't change, I know I've tried.

          G              F                Dm            G

The heart won't lie, you can live your alibi.

                 C                        Am                      F        - G

Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise ?

                          C - Am    - F - G

The heart won't li.........e. 

 

                                                                  C
