1. Funny thing about this little heart of mine,

 

††† all the way that it can say :

††††† G

††† Longer than forever, till the end of time,

 

††† no matter, baby, come what may.

††††† C

††† Look at me now, sitting all by myself,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† face another sleepless night all alone,

†††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††G

††† all I look forward to is lying here living this song.

 

††††††††† †††††††††††††D††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††G

I can't escape thinking every day about you,

††††††††† †††††††††††††D†††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††G

can't escape wishing, dear, you were still mine.

††††††††† †††††††††††††††D††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††G

Can't escape thinking maybe I still love you,

††††††††† †††††††††††††D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††G

can't escape caring for you all of the time.

2. Listen to the music on the radio, top forty hits of yesterday.

†††††† G

††† Leaving on a Jet Plane, Blowin' in the Wind,

††††††††††††

††† The Silly Games That People Play.

††††† C

††† Each of them carries your memory still,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† I can still see that look in your eyes,

††† †††††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

††† the one that preceded your kisses and followed your sighs.

+Sometimes I wish it was ten years ago,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† we were starting all over again.

†††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††G

††† Yet the way that I feel is much more than just remembering when.
