Since this song hasn't been tabbed on this site yet, I figured I'd take a shot at it.
The strumming pattern is pretty easy enough, just listen to the song. The solo is about
95% right, but there are a few places where it's a little iffy. Just go with it.


VERSE I:
           C            F
You're the silent type
        C               F
And you caught my eye
      C                  A
But I never thought that I'd
            G     F
Be touchin' you
        C          F
How was I to know
           C            F
I'd let my feelings go
         C            A
And that I'd be yours before
              G         F
The night was through      yeah!


CHORUS:
Eb        Eb/D
One night love affair
C                   G#         
Tryin' to make like we don't care
Eb           Eb/D             C         G#
We were both reachin' out for somethin'
     Bb
Ohh
Eb        Eb/D
One night love affair
C          G#
Pretendin' it ain't there
Eb       Eb/D                C        G#  
Ohh, and now we're left with nothin'


INTERLUDE I:

C  F  C  F


VERSE II:
         C                F
When the morning breaks
             C               F
We'll go our seperate ways
       C                  A
If the night was made for love
             G        F
It ain't for keeps
      C              F
Now I lose control
     C               F
As I watch you go
       C              A 
All my senses say I'm in this
         G                C
Much too deep, now you're outta reach


CHORUS: (slightly altered)
Eb        Eb/D
One night love affair
C                   G#
Tryin' to make like we don't care
Eb           Eb/D             C
We were both reachin' out for somethin'
G#          Bb
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Eb        Eb/D
One night love affair
C          G#  
Pretendin' we don't care
Eb       Eb/D                C
Ohh, and now we're left with nothin'
G#

Surely this is out by one tone throughout? I hear it as B E not C and F.
