Intro 1 x Riff A, 1 x Riff A (with Fill 1 & 2)

Verse 1 (2 x Riff A)
Bm		             Em7
do you remember Mannheim in September?
G          Dadd6               A    F#
we were in love, and we didn't know it
Bm			       Em7
do you remember sleeping like gloves?
G	   Dadd6		 A  F#
we finally kissed, the world exploded

Pre-Chorus (Riff B)
A		  Bm         G
our pockets were lined with each other
A		    Bm	        G
we knew every last drop of our souls
A	               Bm     	   G          Em Emsus4 Em
but you were worried I wanted somebody from old

Chorus (Riff C)
G	        G	    Bm	     Em7
but my heart is married to somebody else
Em	    G	        Bm	 Em7
my heart is married to somebody else
Em	    G	        Bm	 Em7
my lips are married to somebody else
Em          G  	             Bm
my heart is married to only you

Riff A (started at G), Riff A (with Fill 1 & 2)

Verse 2 (Riff A, Riff A (with Fill 2))
do you remember Paris in October?
we were in love, and we were ecstatic
do you remember feeling growing old?
we changed the world, the world changed us

Pre-Chorus (Riff B)
our pockets were lined with each other
we knew every last drop of our souls
and I was never untrue when the cat was away...no way

Chorus (Riff C)
'cos my heart is married to somebody else
my heart is married to somebody else
my lips are married to somebody else
my love is married to only you

Riff A (started at G, with Fill 2), Riff A (with Fill 1 & 2)

Verse 3 (2 x Riff A)
do you remember Brixton in July
you were unsure and I didn't know it
you couldn't even look me in the eye
and I felt the world crashing around me

Pre-Chorus (Riff B)
I went home to family meek
you changed your clothes and your hair in one week
I don't think I'll be moving on any time soon

Chorus (Riff C)
'cos my heart is married to somebody else
my heart / my lips / my love / my skin / my words / my soul...
my soul is married to only you

Riff A (up to Dadd6)

The F# in the verse doesn't work here. It has to be an F#m but it sounds best if you just play the single F# note on the E-String
