Dm C F

Dm C F Bb C F/A Bb C



Dm C F

From the back of your big brown eyes

Dm C F Bb C

I knew you'd be gone as soon as you could

F/A Bb C

And I hoped you would



We could see that you weren't yourself

And the lines on your face did tell

It's just as well

F/A Bb C F

You'd never be yourself again





Gm7 C Am7 Bb

Saw you last night, dance by the light of the moon.

Gm7 C Dm

Stars in your eyes, free from the life that you knew


INTERLUDE ( w/ sha la's )

/A Dm C F /E

Dm C F Bb C F/A Bb C



Dm C F

Dm C F Bb C F/A Bb C



You're the magic that holds the sky up from the ground

You're the breath the blows these cool winds 'round

Trading places with an angel now



Saw you last night

Dance by the light of the moon

Stars in your eyes

Free from the life that you knew

Saw you last night

Stars in the sky

Smiled in my room


( sha la's over intro music. )
