e or two you that I know you would’ve liked a little more.
C#m 
But
B 
th
A 
ey 
 
 
E 
didn’t show your spirit quite as true.
B 
You were t
E 
urning round to see who was behind you.
B 
And I took
E 
your childish laughter by surprise.
E 
And at the
C#m 
moment my camera happened to find you.
 
T
A 
here 
 
 
E 
was 
 
j
 
ust  
 
a trace of sorrow in your eyes.
C#m 
Now

ings
E 
that I remember seem so distant and so small.

fo
E 
r a while our paths did seem to climb.
 
And
B 
when 
 
you
E 
see though loves illusion there lies the danger.
 
And
B 
your
B/A 
pe
B 
rf
B/A 
ect lover just looks like a perfect fool.
E 
And you go  
C#m 
running off in search of a perfect stranger.
