Here is my version of this song from the "Then They Were Three Album" which is one
of my favourite albums :) I think the chords are quite correct - otherwise please
let me know. Enjoy!

     Esus4       E
The curtains are drawn
        Amaj7          A
Now the fire warms the room.
    Am       B7sus4
Meanwhile outside
Bm7                                 C#m
Wind from the north-east chills the air,
                        F#m            A
It will soon be snowing out there.

    Am         B7sus4
And some there are
Bm7                                C#m
Cold, they prepare for a sleepless night.
                         F#m          A
Maybe this will be their last fight.

          C#m                    A
But we're safe in each other's embrace,
    C#m                            A
All fears go out as I look on your face-

       D      E7add11
Better think awhile
   G/D         D      A
Or I may never think again.
   A7sus2 A7sus2add13  A7sus2(II) Dmaj7            Gmaj7(no3)
If this   were         the        last day of your life, my friend,
Gm F#m                                        B7
         Tell me, what do you think you would do then?

E                     A/E
Stand up to the blow     that fate has struck upon you,
E                    A/E
Make the most of all     you still have coming to you, or
F#m             F#m/E   F#m/Eb
Lay down on the ground         and let the tears run from you,
C#m           A                   B              B/A
Crying to the grass and trees and heaven finally on your knees
E                   A/E
Let me live again,      let life come find me wanting.
E                        A/E
Spring must strike again    against the shield of winter.
F#m              F#m/E  F#m/Eb
Let me feel once more          the arms of love surround me,
C#m            A                G#sus4            G# 
Telling me the danger's past, I need not fear the icy blast again.

B6/C#  C#  B6/C#  C#  
 C#  B6/C#  C#

Laughter, music and perfume linger here
And there, and there,
Wine flows from flask to glass and mouth,
As it soothes, confusing our doubts.

And soon we feel,
Why do a single thing to-day,
There's tomorrow sure as I'm here.

So the days they turn into years
And still no tomorrow appears.

Better think awhile etc...
