"Lovers That Never Were" with Elvis Costello

[Intro]

 F#m7

[Verse]

        F#m     C#m       C#aug    Bm7
 I have always needed somebody, girl
E7     A         D        E             A
 But I close the doors to keep out the world
         F#m                          A7
 But for you, I would be here all alone
 A7
 Locked in a photograph
 F         Dm7                   F      F/C#
 All of the clocks have run down, Lover beware
 F6          Dm7               A
 We'll be the lovers that never were

[Verse]

        F#m        C#m     C#aug   Bm7
 I hang patiently on every word you send
E7       A    D       E              A
 Will we ever be much more than just friends?
        F#m                               A7
 As for you, you sit there playing this game
 D7
 You keep me waiting when
 F         Dm7                     F           F/C#
 All of the clocks have run down, all over the world
 F6          Dm7                   A  A7/C#
 We'll be the lovers that never were

[Chorus]

D       F          A   A7
 For as long as the sun shines
D   F          A  A7
 In somebody's eyes
D  F              A/E  A7/C#
 I believe in you, baby
D   F             A  A7/C#
 So don't tell me lies
D       F          A  A7/C#
 For as long as the trees
D           F           A  A7/C#
 Throw down blossoms and leaves
D  F              A
 I know there will be
C#m   G#7              C#m   E7
 A parade of unpainted dreams

[Verse]

       F#m        C#m           C#aug    Bm7
 And I know dear how much it's going to hurt
E7      A       D       E              A
 If you still refuse to get your hands dirty
    F#m                                    A7
 So you, you must tell me something...I love you
 A7
 Say goodbye or anything
 F         Dm7
 All of the clocks have run down
 F           F/C#
 Time's at an end
    F           Dm7                   A  A7/C#  D  F  A  A7/C#
 If we can't be lovers we'll never be friends

[Chorus]

D       F          A   A7
 For as long as the sun shines
D   F          A  A7
 In somebody's eyes
D  F              A/E  A7/C#
 I believe in you, baby
D   F             A  A7/C#
 So don't tell me lies
D       F          A  A7/C#
 For as long as the trees
D           F           A  A7/C#
 Throw down blossoms and leaves
D  F              A
 I know there will be
C#m   G#7              C#m   E7
 A parade of unpainted dreams

Coda:
F   Dm   A
