	 D                             F#m/C#
	Don't ask me why, but time has passed us by
	 G                 D             A
	Someone else moved in from far away
	    G                           D
	Now we are tall and Christmas trees are small
	    Em                         D    D7
	And you don't ask the time of day
	     G                         D
	But you and I, our love will never die
	     Em              G   [1: /A]      D   [1: A (band enters)]
	But guess who'll cry   come First of May

Verse 2:

	The apple tree that grew for you and me
	I watched the apples falling one by one
	And I recall the moment of them all
	The day I kissed your cheek and you were gone
	Now we are tall and Christmas trees are small
	And you don't ask the time of day
	But you and I, our love will never die
	But guess who'll cry come First of May

Coda:

	(piano, acoustic guitar, and strings):

	     D                         F#m/C#
	When I was small and Christmas trees were tall
	G               D            A
	Do-do-do-do-do  do-do-do  do-do

	(acapella):

	Don't ask me why    but time has passed us by
	Someone else moved in   from far away [fade]
