D

the 1st time I saw you

D9/C

i did try hard to burn my eyes

Bm

life was but a sad dream
i was but a sad breath

                      A6(9)(4)

but you were something like sand
when sunlight hits the sea

 

D

the 2nd time I saw you

D9/C

i was about to take the road

Bm

i asked would you wait for me
you said life ain't a highway

A6(9)(4)                 

better if we'd been born
as siamese songbirds

 

D

the 3rd time I saw you

D9/C

we went to the zoo

Bm

all steady hot beers, sorrowful monkeys

A6(9)(4)

big eyes laughing
wish I had not held hands

 

D

the 4th time I saw you

D9/C

it was like I was gonna die

Bm

i was waiting outside
you just had a new guy

A6(9)(4)

asked me why, I, I

 

D     D7M(9)/5#

son, won't you come along?

D4                                         D

we have no time for another song

D7M(9)/5#

won't you sing along?

D4

we have no sea, child

 

D

the 5th time I saw you

D9/C

he was traveling abroad

Bm

and your eyes, they were not here
you just made new friends

A6(9)(4)

while I tried to stop with cigarrettes

 

D

the 6th time I saw you

D9/C

i was properly insane

Bm

for the whisky I had drunk
the drugs I'd taken

A6(9)(4)

gimme one way you will realise

 

D

the 7th time I saw you

D9/C

you were married again

Bm

if I had just once kissed you
things wouldn't be the same

A6(9)(4)

surely the sky'd be different

 

D

the 8th time I saw you

D9/C

i was strummin' the guitar

Bm

& your ears were not for me
my ears were a-bleeding

A6(9)(4)

the waiter was blind
please someone blind my eyes

 

D

the last time I saw you

D9/C

it was about five a.m.

Bm

you approached me in a strange car
finally kissed me

A6(9)(4)

then did wave goodbye
before you disappear

 

D

sometimes I ache, babe

D9/C

or I ain't hard enough to stand

Bm

days they just drown me
coming back from work

A6(9)(4)

having sour breakfast
seasick from your chest.
