How To Play

Intro:    A / F#m / A / F#m / A / E
 
           A            F#m        A
Through a smoke filled glass on a desperate night
 
                         D                F#m
When the sole of my shoe lets in rain
 
           Bm               E              A     Ab     F#m
When the heart’s tired of running and the milk’s gone sour
 
            Bm       A     Bm    E        D
Will your feelings still be the same?
 
          A           F#m          A            F#m
When the match won’t light so the flames don’t tremble
 
          A                      D         A
And the years are condemning us ‘till
 
             Bm           E             A            F#m
I’ll need a soul mate to hold me and a friend for life
 
         Bm        E        A
And I’m hoping it might be you.
 
 
Instrumental break : A / F#m / A / F#m
 
 
        A           F#m    A          F#m
When I think of life as a chance not taken
 
      A          E            D        A
As a compromise tinged with regret
 
          Bm              E              A    E    F#m
When the kids leave for breeding and the T    V’s king
 
          Bm          F#m        A       E      A
Will you tell me we’re not done yet,
 
         F#m        A
Will you think of me as a distant island
 
                                  D           A
Or will you come with me to the moon?
 
          Bm           E             A          F#m
I need a soul mate to hold me and a friend for life
 
         Bm        E        A
And I’m hoping it might be you
 
Ab         C#m      Ab           C#m
Give me a sign and I’ll keep the faith, 
 
D           A            F#m     E
Keep me in coffee and so safe
 
D                   C#m      A
And I’ll feed your cats 
 
    F#m        E        D       C#m
And I’ll     paint    walls
 
     Bm           E         A
And I’ll be your one-night stand
 
 
 
Break:  A /E/A/E/D/C#m/Bm/E/A/E/F#m/Bm/F#m/E/A
 
 
          A                          F#m
Will you come with me in the certain knowledge
 
          A                              D
That the catch is – there’s no catch at all
 
 
             C#m          Bm  E         A         F#m
I’ll need a soul mate to hold me and a friend for life
 
          Bm       E        D      A   F#m
And I’m hoping it might be you
 
          Bm         E       A
Yeah I’m certain it must be you
 
 
Repeat to fade:   F#m / A / F#m / A
