How To Play

INTRO
 
Cadd9 G D
 
 
VERSE 1
 
              Cadd9
You should've been there, 
          G
Should've burst through the door 
           D
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Cadd9
And it would've felt like 
  G                      D
A million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Cadd9   G  D
And I would've been so  happy
 
 
VERSE 2
 
          Cadd9
Christmas lights glisten 
            G
I've got my eye on the door 
     D
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Cadd9
But the time is ticking
       G
People ask me how I've been, as I 
D
Comb back through my memory
             Cadd9   G     D
How you said you'd be  here 
         Cadd9    G  D
You said you'd, be  here
 
 
CHORUS
 
                     Cadd9   G
And it was like slow motion 
         D
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9     G
In red lipstick
     D
With no one to impress
                Cadd9     G
And they're all laughing 
       D
As I'm looking around the room
                        Cadd9   G
But there was one thing missing
    D*
And that was the moment I knew
 
 
Cadd9 G D
Cadd9 G D
 
 
VERSE 3
 
              Cadd9
And the hours pass by,
           G
Now I just want to be alone,
         D
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Cadd9
When there's something really wrong 
        G                       D
So they follow me down the hall 
          Cadd9
And there in the bathroom 
      G
I try not to fall apart 
        D
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Cadd9 G     D
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"
 
 
CHORUS
 
                     Cadd9   G
And it was like slow motion 
         D
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9     G
In red lipstick
     D
With no one to impress 
                Cadd9     G
And they're all laughing 
    D
And asking me about you
                        Cadd9   G
But there was one thing missing
    D
And that was the moment I knew
 
 
BRIDGE
 
Cadd9
What do you say when tears are 
G
Streaming down your face in front of
D
Everyone you know?
Cadd9*
And what do you do 
                 G*
When the one who means the most to you 
D*
Is the one who didn't show?
 
 
Cadd9 G D
 
 
              Cadd9     G D
You should've been here, 
                      Cadd9   G  D
And I would've been so  happy
 
 
CHORUS
 
                     Cadd9   G
And it was like slow motion 
         D
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9     G
In red lipstick
     D
With no one to impress
                Cadd9             G
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 D
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Cadd9   G
But there was one thing missing
    D
And that was the moment I knew
 
 
Cadd9    G    D
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Cadd9    G    D     -stop
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,
 
 
OUTRO
 
              Cadd9*
You called me later 
               G*
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    D*
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Cadd9*   G*  D*
And that was the moment I knew
