[Intro] Eb  Gm7/D  Ab/Eb  Db9

       Eb                Gm7/D
I don't know how,    but nights get lonely now
   Dm7              G7          Eb/Bb               F7(9)/A
They keep appearing in my eyes,   such a warm and tender glow
     Ab/Bb               Bb
For just one moment,  I remember all

           Eb                Gm7/D
The love we had, was never all that bad
        Dm7             G7             Eb/Bb
There were smiles and there were tears
                F7(9)/A                   
On that special starry night
      Ab/Bb               Bb
With your arms around me,   held on tight

  Ab                  Cm7                  Fm7          Bb
Wasn't that the way, it was,  two strangers reaching for
             Eb7    Ab                       Cm7
A worthless cause? Wasn't that the love,   we shared
             Fm7              Ab/Bb           Eb
Or just the restless years, when no-one, cared

       Eb                Gm7/D
I don't know why,   it's hard to say goodbye
   Dm7              G7   Eb/Bb                F7(9)/A
Or even justify the end,    you meant so very much to me
       Ab/Bb                   Bb
Then to let you go,   start my life again

           Eb                Gm7/D
The love we had,    was never all that bad
        Dm7             G7             Eb/Bb
There were smiles and there were tears
                F7(9)/A              Ab/Bb           
Till that special summer day, when I reached out for you
     Bb
You just walked away

Ab                  Cm7                  Fm7          Bb
Wasn't that the way, it was,  two strangers reaching for
             Eb7    Ab                       Cm7
A worthless cause? Wasn't that the love,   we shared
             Fm7              Ab/Bb           Eb  Gm7/D  Ab/Eb  Db9
Or just the restless years, when no-one, cared

Eb  Gm7/D  Ab/Eb  Db9  Eb
Ahh
