Hi there:) So, someone stood Taylor
up on her birthday?  How dare they!!  They
should've known doing that would fuel her 
songwriting! Lol!  Let me know what you all
think and have fun!!


[Intro]

Cadd9 G D


[Verse]

              Cadd9                   
You should've been there, 
          G
Should've burst through the door 
           D                    
With that "Baby I'm right here" smile 
                Cadd9
And it would've felt like 
  G                      D
A million little shining stars had just aligned 
                      Cadd9   G  D
And I would've been so  happy


[Pre-Chorus]

          Cadd9
Christmas lights glisten 
            G
I've got my eye on the door 
     D                      
Just waiting for you to walk in 
            Cadd9
But the time is ticking
       G                   
People ask me how I've been, as I 
D
Comb back through my memory
             Cadd9   G     D
How you said you'd be  here 
         Cadd9    G  D
You said you'd, be  here


[Chorus]

                     Cadd9   G
And it was like slow motion 
         D                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9     G
In red lipstick
     D
With no-one to impress
                Cadd9     G
And they're all laughing 
       D
As I'm looking around the room
                        Cadd9   G
But there was one thing missing
    D -once
And that was the moment I knew


Cadd9 G D
Cadd9 G D


[Verse]

              Cadd9
And the hours pass by,
           G
Now I just want to be alone,
         D
But your close friends always seem to know 
                       Cadd9 
When there's something really wrong 
        G                       D
So they follow me down the hall 
          Cadd9 
And there in the bathroom 
      G                 
I try not to fall apart 
        D
And the sinking feeling starts 
                                 Cadd9 G     D
As I say hopelessly "He said he'd   be here"


[Chorus]

                     Cadd9   G
And it was like slow motion 
         D                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9     G
In red lipstick
     D
With no-one to impress 
                Cadd9     G
And they're all laughing 
    D
And asking me about you
                        Cadd9   G
But there was one thing missing
    D 
And that was the moment I knew


[Verse]

Cadd9
What do you say when tears are 
G
Streaming down your face in front of
D 
Everyone you know?
Cadd9 *once
And what do you do 
                 G*
When the one who means the most to you 
D*
Is the one who didn't show?


Cadd9 G D


              Cadd9     G D              
You should've been here, 
                      Cadd9   G  D
And I would've been so  happy


[Chorus]

                     Cadd9   G
And it was like slow motion 
         D                 
Standing there in my party dress
       Cadd9     G
In red lipstick
     D
With no-one to impress
                Cadd9             G
And they're all sitting around me singing 
 D
"Happy Birthday To You"
                        Cadd9   G
But there was one thing missing
    D 
And that was the moment I knew



Cadd9    G    D
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh, I knew
Cadd9    G    D     -stop
Oh, ohh, ohh, ohh,


[Outro]

              Cadd9 *once
You called me later 
               G*                   
And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"
    D* 
And I said, "I'm sorry too"
                 Cadd9*   G*  D*
And that was the moment I knew




Have fun and RATE:)
