Almost lover    (video)

 

   Am - F (2x)

 

                    Am

1. Your fingertips across my skin,

                                F                                 Am   - F

    the palm trees swaying in the wind, images,

                            Am

    you sang me Spanish lullabies

                           F                                           Am   - F

    the sweetest sadness in your eyes, clever trick.

 

                 G                                     C

    Well, I never want to see you unhappy,

        Dm                                              G

    I thought you'd want the same for me.

 

C                                             - G

    Goodbye, my almost lover,         goodbye, my hopeless dream,

Dm                                                  - F

    I'm trying not to think about you,        can't you just let me be ?

C                                                   - G

    So long, my luckless romance,        my back is turned on you,

Dm

    should've known you'd bring me heartache,

F                                     - C

    almost lovers always         do.

 

     - - - - - - -    Am

2. We walked along a crowded street,

                          F                                              Am - F

    you took my hand and danced with me, imag……..es.

                            Am

    And when you left, you kissed my lips,

                                           F                                           Am  F

    you told me you would never, never forget these images, no.

 

                 G                                     C

    Well, I never want to see you unhappy,

        Dm                                              G

    I thought you'd want the same for me.

 

+  CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Am                                 G                                                 F

    I cannot go to the ocean, I cannot drive the streets at night,

                                                Em                                  Am

    I cannot wake up in the morning without you on my mind.

                                                           G                                      F

    Well, so you're gone and I'm haunted, and I bet you are just fine.

                                    Dm                                     - - - - - - -   G

    Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out  - - -  of my life?

 

C                                             - G

    Goodbye, my almost lover,         goodbye, my hopeless dream,

Dm                                                  - F

    I'm trying not to think about you,        can't you just let me be ?

C                                                   - G

    So long, my luckless romance,        my back is turned on you,

Dm

    should've known you'd bring me heartache,

F                                     - - -   C

    almost lovers always  - - -  do.
