INTRO
| C | % | Dm | % |
| C | % | Dm | % |


VERSE
C
 It's not the way you look
C                          Dm
 It's not the way that you smile
  Dm
Although there's something to them
C
 It's not the way you have your hair
C                      Dm
 It's not that certain style
   Dm
It could be that with you


CHORUS
G           A
 If I had a photograph of you
G                A
 Or something to remind me
G                    A
 I wouldn't spend my life just wishing


INTERLUDE
| C | % | Dm | % |
| C | % | Dm | % |


VERSE
C
 It's not the make-up
         C                     Dm
 And it's not the way that you dance
     Dm
It's not the evening sky
C
 It's more the way your eyes
    C                  Dm
Are laughing as they glance
 Dm
Across the great divide


CHORUS
G           A
 If I had a photograph of you
G                A
 Or something to remind me
G                    A
 I wouldn't spend my life just wishing

INTERLUDE
| C | % | Dm | % |
| C | % | Dm | % |


VERSE
C
 It's not the things you say
C                        Dm
 It's not the things you do
   Dm
It must be something more
C
 And if I feel this way for so long
C                       Dm
Tell me is it all for nothing
     Dm
Just don't walk out the door


CHORUS
G           A
 If I had a photograph of you
G                A
 Or something to remind me
G                    A
 I wouldn't spend my life just wishing
