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
