Intro

Em D Em D

Verse 1

CThey even looked at each other once Across a Dcrowded bar BmHe was with Martha EmShe with Tom Neither Cof them really knew What was Dgoing on Strange feeling of neBmver Heartbeats becoming Emsynchronized Staying that way foreverC But most of the time D It was just near misses Air kissesBm Once in a book store Once at a partyEm She came in as he was leavingC And years ago at the movieDs She sat behind himBm Six thirty showing Of WEmhile You Were Sleeping CNever once looked around

Chorus

Em G C Am

It's so easy from above You can't really see it all People who belong together Lost and sad and small But there's nothing to be done for them It doesn't work that way Sure we all have soulmates but we walk Past them every day Oh no

C D Bm Em

Verse 2

C D Bm Em

And it's not like they were actually ever unhappy in the lives they lived He married Martha She married Tom Just this vague notion that something was wrong An ache, an absence, a phantom limb An itch that could never be scratchedC

Chorus

Em G C Am

It's so easy from above You can't really see it all People who belong together Lost and sad and small But there's nothing to be done for them It doesn't work that way Sure we all have soulmates but we walk Past them every day Oh no

C D Bm Em

Bridge

GNeither of them knew what was Bmgoing on CThe strange feeling of never Heartbeats becoming synchronisedCm Staying that way foreveEmr

Interlude

Em G C Am

Verse 3

C D Bm Em

And who knows whether that's how it should be Maybe a ghost lives in that vacancy Maybe that's how books get written Maybe that's why songs get sung Maybe we owe the unlucky ones

Chorus

Em G C Am

It's so easy from above You can't really see it all People who belong together Lost and sad and small But there's nothing to be done for them It doesn't work that way Sure we all have soulmates but we walk Past them every day Oh no CLOSING VERSE

C D Bm Em

Maybe that's how books get written Maybe that's why songs get sung Maybe we owe the unlucky ones
