G
Once I was the keeper of a secret surprise,

But now it's gone away.

Every time I loo into the darks of your eyes,
C                  Gmaj13
You always look away.


         Em      C        G              D
Cause in my mind you don't know where I live.
    Em           C                       G                      D
But one day your hand will be on my door, you will give it a twist.
        Em         C     G             D
And my heart will stop, I'll lay where I stand.
    Em             C         G                               D
And I hope that you'd dial the ambulance as fast as you could.

Of course you are the winner and the trump of the town,
But all nonsense aside,
I'll always be the way that you remember me now,
The way that you remember me best

Cause in my mind you don't know where I live.
But one day your hand will be on my door, you will give it a twist.
And my heart will stop, I'll lay where I stand.
And I hope that you dial the ambulance as fast as you could, as fast as you should.

Awesome. This sounds great. Posting the chords along with the second verse would be nice, but they're quite easy to remember, so it's not necessary. 5 Stars.
