nc                   F                         G7         C6
This happened once before, when I came to your door. No reply.
                    F                       G7            C
They said it wasn't you, but I saw you peep through, your window.
          Am        Em             Fmaj7        Em
I saw the light.         I saw the light.
                    Dm7                       G7        C
I know that you saw me, 'cause I looked up to see, your face.

               F                             G7             C6
I tried to telephone, they said you were not home. That's a lie.
                           F                    G7       C
'Cause I know where you've been, I saw you walk in, your door.
         Am        Em             Fmaj7        Em
I nearly died.           I nearly died.
                          Dm7                G7         C
'Cause you walked hand in hand, with another man, in my place.

                   E7            A
If I were you, I'd realize, that I.
         Dm         F         C
Love you more, than any other guy.
                      E7         A
And I'll forgive, the lies, that I.
        Dm             F            C
Heard before, when you gave me no reply.

               F                             G7             C6
I tried to telephone, they said you were not home. That's a lie.

'Cause I know where you've been, I saw you walk in, your door.
         Am        Em             Fmaj7        Em
I nearly died.           I nearly died.
                          Dm7                G7         C

And I'm not what I appear to be.

G          D           F           G
Of all the love I have won or have lost,
             D             F          G
There is one love I should never have crossed.
          D         F           G
She was a girl in a million, my friend.
              D               F          G
I should have known she would win in the end.

      Am   D       Am                 D
I'm a loser, and I lost someone who's near to me.
      G    Em        Am           F       D
I'm a loser, and I'm not what I appear to be.

G          D           F          G
Although I laugh and I act like a clown,
             D         F         G
Beneath this mask I am wearing a frown.
             D            F             G
My tears are falling like rain from the sky,
          D        F           G
Is it for her or myself that I cry?

      Am   D       Am                 D
I'm a loser, and I lost someone who's near to me.
      G    Em        Am          F        D
I'm a loser, and I'm not what I appear to be.

Break:  G  D  F  G  /  D  F  G  Am  D  Am  D  G  Em  Am  F D

G           D         F            G
What have I done to deserve such a fate?
      D          F           G
I realise I have left it too late.
            D                 F        G
And so it's true, pride comes before a fall.
            D            F              G
I'm telling you, so that you won't lose all.

      Am   D       Am                 D
I'm a loser, and I lost someone who's near to me.
      G    Em        Am           F       D
I'm a loser, and I'm not what I appear to be.

  Unless they try to play it too darn fast.

And lose the beauty of the melody,
                            E7      nc
Until it sounds just like a symphony.         That's why I go for that
