   A
In bed beside you with the curtains drawn
       C#7sus4/G#             C#m7/G#
For an hour at least I can pretend we're born
   F#m                           Dmaj7           D6
To be together and fate alone is keeping me from you
              A
But there's a price we pay when we live a lie
        C#7sus4/G#      C#m7/G#
And you find it hard to meet my eye
         F#m
When you start to dress as we kiss goodbye
      Dmaj7             D6
And I know we're coming to
 
    Asus4  A     E/G#
The end of the affair
    D/F#   D6/F# Dsus2
The end of the affair
Asus4                 A
I could love you for eternity
    E/G#
The fact remains you don't belong to me
      D/F#   D6/F# Dsus2
 (The end of the affair)
 
        A
I could tell the story of my love for you
       C#7sus4/G#             C#m7/G#
With a detailed list of every rendez-vous
F#m
Discreet hotels we've checked into
Dmaj7            D6
How and when and where
      A
But a cold recital of the facts would miss
    C#7sus4/G#  C#m7/G#
The poetry, the way you kiss
   F#m
The sense of loss now as come to this
    Dmaj7           D6
The bitter sweet despair
 
    Asus4  A     E/G#
The end of the affair
    D/F#   D6/F# Dsus2
The end of the affair
Asus4                 A
I could love you for eternity
    E/G#
The fact remains you don't belong to me
      D/F#   D6/F# Dsus2
 (The end of the affair)
 
         A
Well I'm old enough to know right from wrong
     C#7sus4/G#    C#m7/G#
So I tell myself I should be strong
   F#m
In time I'll learn to get along
    Dmaj7         D6
Without you being near
      A
But I know I'm living when I'm by your side
         C#7sus4/G#       C#m7/G#
You're a rollercoaster, a fairground ride
   F#m
My conscience and desires collide
     Dmaj7         D6
Like rockets in midair
 
    Asus4  A     E/G#
The end of the affair
    D/F#   D6/F# Dsus2
The end of the affair
Asus4                     A
I could love you till the stars don't shine
    E/G#
But I'm not yours and you're not mine
      D/F#   D6/F# Dsus2
 (The end of the affair)
 
     Dmaj7 D6        Dmaj7 Dmaj7sus2      [A]
It's o-    ver, it's o     ver,       It's over

    A
The first few days are gonna drag real slow
          C#7sus4/G#           C#m7/G#
I'm gonna think I see you everywhere I go
          F#m
These are routine symptoms ex-lovers show
    Dmaj7             D6
The battle scars they share
  A
I already miss your worried smile
C#7sus4/G#     C#m7/G#
Guilty secrets weren't your style
        F#m
But you had me fooled for a little while
     Dmaj7            D6
That makes it hard to bear
 
    Asus4  A     E/G#
The end of the affair
    D/F#   D6/F# Dsus2
The end of the affair
Asus4                     A
I could love you till the stars don't shine

But I'm not yours and you're not mine

It's o-    ver, it's o     ver,       It's over
