[Intro]
 Dsus2   D5 D    Dsus2  Em     Em7    G        D  D/F# D/E  D
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  | /  /  /  /  |  /   /    /   /  |


[Verse 1]
Dsus2      D5    D  Dsus2      Em   Em7        G         D  D/F# D/E  D
There she sits, her hands are held tight a - round her glass,
   Dsus2  D5   D  Dsus2    Em        Em7        G         D  D/F# D/E  D
She only needs to  be a - lone, she knows this mood will pass,
    E     E7        A                  Am     Am7      E
To real - ise that she was strong, and he too weak to stay,
E7    E7sus4   C        F       Bb             C
And to real - ise that she is better off this way!


[Chorus]
        G            G7/F             C/E         Cm7/D#   D
Brief candles in her mind, bright and tiny gems of memor - y,
        G             G7/F            C/E              Cm7/D#    D
Brief candles burn so fine, leaves a light inside where she can see...
       C                    G           C                A     A4  A
What makes it all worth - while, her sadness makes her smile---------!


[Verse 2]
Dsus2     D5    D   Dsus2     Em   Em7      G     D   D/F# D/E  D
He's a - lone, girl fades a - way, left out on a limb,
Dsus2     D5    D  Dsus2       Em         Em7      G        D  D/F# D/E  D
Finds he needs her more, be - cause she's no more need for him,
     E      E7       A             Am        Am7     E
He under - stood so very well the things she had to say,
  E7       E7sus4   C        F       Bb             C
Soon he'll under -stand that he is better off this way!


[Chorus]
        G            G7/F             C/E          Cm7/D#  D
Brief candles in his mind, bright and tiny gems of memor - y,
        G             G7/F            C/E              Cm7/D#   D
Brief candles burn so fine, leaves a light inside where he can see...
       C                    G           C                A     A4  A
What makes it all worth - while, his sadness makes him smile---------!


[Bridge]
  E (sus4)       F             G              C
  Ah----------------------------------------, ah---------!
| /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  | /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

  E (sus4)       F             G              A

[Verse 3]
Dsus2    D5     D   Dsus2     Em       Em7       G         D  D/F# D/E  D
  In the corn - er,  see his face, the man just sips his drink,
Dsus2     D5     D  Dsus2    Em        Em7      G        D    D/F# D/E  D
 Not one feel - ing does he show, he's far too numb to think,
    E        E7     A              Am      Am7     E
He does not say a single word, no word of love to say,
 E7  E7sus4     C          F          Bb             C
Maybe  he will soon be - lieve he's better off this way!


[Chorus]
        G            G7/F             C/E          Cm7/D#  D
Brief candles in his mind, bright and tiny gems of memor - y,
        G             G7/F            C/E              Cm7/D#   D
Brief candles burn so fine, leaves a light inside where he can see...
       C                    G           C                A     A4 A
What makes it all worth - while, his sadness makes him smile--------! Ooo!
