*INTRO*

Bb    A
Bb    A

*VERSE*

ALL THE VERSES ARE THE SAME AS THE INTRO.

Bb
His body loved her
                    A
His mind was set on other things
          Bb
Keep your face out of sight
                     A
And your thoughts to yourself

*BRIDGE*


Am
And this went on for several nights
Ab
Festering in silence
Gm
Growing in the dark

*CHORUS*

                     Am
And this they saw as love
         G
Looooovvvvvvveeeeeee
          F#
So sad to see
               Fmaj7
They suffocate at night
                    Am
Oh this thay saw as love
         G
Loooooovvvvvveeeeeee
          F#
So sad to see
           Fmaj7
To see it slowly die

*VERSE*
SAME AS BEFORE

She met his wishes
He found that he had changed his mind
Now the fit is too tight
And the bedroom too warm

*BRIDGE*
SAME AS BEFORE

The days are full of things to do
Night time lives so hollow
And memories betrayed

*CHORUS*
SAME AS BEFORE

Those memories of love
Loooovvvvvvvveeee
So sad to see
They suffocate at night
Those memories of love
Loooovvvvvvvveeee
So sad to see
To see it slowly die

*VERSE*
SAME AS BEFORE

Two years have passed
Two years of emptiness inside
And the grey skies above
Show just how far I went wrong

*BRIDGE*
SAME AS BEFORE

I wonder if she's living there
The way that I recall
The way I'll always think of you

*CHORUS*
SAME AS BEFORE

When I think of you
I think of love
Loooovvvvvvvveeee
So sad to see
They suffocate at night
Those memories of love
Loooovvvvvvvveeee
So sad to see
To see it slowly die

*VERSE*
SAME AS BEFORE

I wrote you a letter
I threw it away
I wrote you a letter
I threw it away
I need her
No, I don't need her
I need her
ohhhhhh

etc.
