C Cmaj7 F C CCG

C                                       Cmaj7                                           F
How long since I’ve spent a whole night in a twin bed with a stranger
.                           C                 C C G
His warm arms all around me?
C                                            Cmaj7                             F
How long since I’ve gazed into dark eyes that melted my soul down
.                             C                C C G
To a place where it longs to be?
Em                                                             F
All of your history has little to do with your face
.           Bb                                                   F           F F C G
You’re mainly a mystery with violins filling in space

C                                          Cmaj7                           F
You stood in the nude by the mirror and picked out a rose,
.               C                             C C G
from the bouquet in our hotel
C                                   Cmaj7                            F
And lay down beside me again and I watched the rose,
.             C              C C G
on the pillow as it fell
Em                                                               F
I sank and I slept in a twilight with only one care;
.   Bb                                                                                  F
to know that when day broke and I woke, that you’d still be there,
.                      C
you d still be there


C                                            Cmaj7                   F
The hours for once they passed slowly, unendingly by
.                                   C           C C G
Like a sweet breeze on a field
.         C                              Cmaj7                          F
Your gentleness came down upon me and I guess I thanked you,
.                                    C       C C G
When you caused me to yield
.       Em                                                             F
We spoke not a sentence and took not a footstep beyond
.       Bb                                                                        F
Our two days together which seemingly soon would be gone,
.                        C
Soon would be gone

C                                   Cmaj7                            F
Don’t tell me of love everlasting and other sad dreams,
.                      C       C C G
I don’t want to hear
.       C                             Cmaj7                                F
Just tell me of passionate strangers who rescue each other
.                            C      C C G
From a lifetime of cares
.     Em                                                                 F
Because if love means forever, expecting nothing returned
.            Bb                                                             F
Then I hope I’ll be given another whole lifetime to learn,
.                    C

.     C                                     Cmaj7                                  F
Because you gave to me oh so many things it makes me wonder;
.                          C                 C C G
how they could belong to me?
.     C                           Cmaj7                                 F
And I gave you only my dark eyes that melted your soul down;
.                             C            C C G
to a place where it longs to be
