Intro: 

Em-D*-Em-D*



VERSE 1:

C
They even looked at each other once

         D*
Across a crowded bar

Bm
He was with Martha

Em
She with Tom

        C
Neither of them really knew

         D*
What was going on

                     Bm
Strange feeling of never

                    Em
Heartbeats becoming synchronized

                        C
Staying that way forever


                     D* 
But most of the time

                       
It was just near misses

          Bm
Air kisses

                    
Once in a book store

               Em
Once at a party

                             C
She came in as he was leaving

                          D*
And years ago at the movies
         
                  Bm
She sat behind him


Six thirty showing

    Em
Of While You Were Sleeping

C
Never once looked around




CHORUS:

Em-G-C-Am

It's so easy from above 
You can't really see it all
People who belong together
Lost and sad and small
But there's nothing to be done for them
It doesn't work that way
Sure we all have soulmates but we walk
Past them every day
Oh no

C-D*-Bm-Em



VERSE 2:

C-D*-Bm-Em

And it's not like they were actually ever unhappy in the lives they lived
He married Martha
She married Tom
Just this vague notion that something was wrong
An ache, an absence, a phantom limb

                                     C
An itch that could never be scratched



cHORUS

Em-G-C-Am

It's so easy from above 
You can't really see it all
People who belong together
Lost and sad and small
But there's nothing to be done for them
It doesn't work that way
Sure we all have soulmates but we walk
Past them every day
Oh no

C-D*-Bm-Em



BRIDGE

G                             Bm
Neither of them knew what was going on

C
The strange feeling of never
                                Cm
Heartbeats becoming synchronised

                       Em
Staying that way forever



INTERLUDE: Em-G-C-Am


VERSE 3

C-D*-Bm-Em

And who knows whether that's how it should be
Maybe a ghost lives in that vacancy
Maybe that's how books get written
Maybe that's why songs get sung
Maybe we owe the unlucky ones


cHORUS

Em-G-C-Am

It's so easy from above 
You can't really see it all
People who belong together
Lost and sad and small
But there's nothing to be done for them
It doesn't work that way
Sure we all have soulmates but we walk
Past them every day
Oh no


CLOSING VERSE

C-D*-Bm-Em

Maybe that's how books get written
Maybe that's why songs get sung
Maybe we owe the unlucky ones

I wonder what the * on the D chord is supposed to mean.

Nevermind old stupid me, it's right there on top. Will order glasses tomorrow.
