|G     Cadd9     Am      D| x 2

G    Cadd9 Am       D
Once upon a midnight dearie
G      Cadd9         Am    D
I woke with something in my head
G          Cadd9   Am  D
I couldn't escape the memory
G    Cadd9         Am          D
Of a phone call and of what you said
G      Cadd9    Am          D               G
Like a game show contestant with a parting gift
        C   Am         D
I could not believe my eyes
G      Cadd9          Am    D               G
When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend
G      Cadd9          Am    D    G
Who needs to humor me and tell me lies
G    Cadd9       Am      D
Yeah humor me and tell me lies
G        Cadd9   Am      D
And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
G      Cadd9  Am       D
And as we seek so shall we find

G        Cadd9         Am     D
And when you're feeling open I'll still be here
G       Cadd9     Am      D             G
But not without a certain degree of fear
G       Cadd9       Am      D
Of what will be with you and me
G       Cadd9     Am       D
I still can see things hopefully


[CHORUS]
G   Cadd9   Am   D
But you
G       Cadd9     Am   D
Why you wanna give me a run-around
G       Cadd9            Am          D
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
G        Cadd9     Am      D
When all it does is slow me down
Slow me down


G         Cadd9 Am       D
And shake me and my confidence
G       Cadd9 Am     D
About a great many things
G             Cadd9      Am     D
But I've been there I can see it cower
G        Cadd9  Am      D                  G
Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings
     Cadd9   Am        D               G
Of a bad play where the heroes are right
           Cadd9    Am          D
And nobody thinks or expects too much
G         Cadd9               Am     D
And Hollywood's calling for the movie rights
G           Cadd9      Am     D
Singing hey babe let's keep in touch
G   Cadd9     Am      D
Hey baby let's keep in touch
G          Cadd9        Am                D
But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me
G           Cadd9   Am           D
And show me all the things no one else can see
G           Cadd9       Am       D
So what you feel becomes mine as well
G              Cadd9        Am           D
And soon if we're lucky we'd be unable to tell
G                Cadd9   Am        D
What's yours and mine the finshings fine
G      Cadd9   Am        D                     G
And it doesn't have to rhyme so don't feed me a line

[CHORUS]
G   Cadd9   Am   D
But you
G       Cadd9     Am   D
Why you wanna give me a run-around
G       Cadd9            Am          D
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
G        Cadd9     Am      D
When all it does is slow me down
G    Cadd9   Am
Slow me down

G               Cadd9                 Am    D
Tra la la la la bomba dear this is the pilot speaking
G      Cadd9 Am       D
And I've got some news for you
G           Cadd9            Am                 D
It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop
G                       Cadd9  Am       D
And there ain't a whole lot that you can do
G           Cadd9                 Am            D
Oh sure the banner may be torn and wind's gotten colder
G       Cadd9        Am       D
Perhaps I've grown a little cynical
G            Cadd9           Am       D
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
G       Cadd9       Am        D
I shall drink in and always be full
G   Cadd9          Am  D
My cup shall always be full

G         Cadd9  Am         D
Oh I like coffee, And I like tea
G        Cadd9        Am       D 
I'd like to be able to enter a final plea
G Cadd9          Am             D
I still got this dream that you can't shake
G      Cadd9     Am            D
I love you to the point you can no longer take

G           Cadd9
Well all right okay
Am         D
So be that way
G           Cadd9
I hope and pray
              Am        D
That there's something left to say

[CHORUS] x2
G   Cadd9   Am   D
But you
G       Cadd9     Am   D
Why you wanna give me a run-around
G       Cadd9            Am          D
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
G        Cadd9     Am      D
When all it does is slow me down
Slow me down
