      B                              Abm
Do you still feel younger than you thought you would by now
    Dbm                                 Gb
or, darling, have you started feeling old yet?
      B                                Abm
Don't worry, I'm sure that you're still breaking hearts
                 Dbm                      Gb
with the efficiency that only youth can harness.
          B                      Abm
And do you still think love is a laserquest?
     Dbm                            Gb
Or do you take it all more seriously?
               B                    Abm
I've tried to ask you this in some daydreams that I've had,
                Dbm                       Gb
but you're always busy being make-believe.

    E                              Gb
And do you look into the mirror to remind yourself you're there?
          B                                   E
Or have somebody's good-night kisses got that covered?
                                Gb                     E          B
Well I'm not being honest, I'll pretend that you were just some lover.

B                              Abm
Now I can't think of there without thinking of you,
 Dbm                          Gb
I doubt that comes as a surprise.
     B                             Abm
And I can't think of anything to dream about,
Dbm                        Gb
I can't find anywhere to hide.

          E                         Gb
And when I'm hanging on by the rings around my eyes
          B                    E
and I convince myself I need another.
                                      Gb                   E         B
And for a minute it gets easier to pretend that you were just some lover.

Interlude: B Abm Dbm Gb

          E                     Gb
When I'm pipe and slippers and rocking chair,
         B                    E
singing dreadful songs about summat.
                                      Gb                 E         Abm
Well I've found a better method of pretending you were just some lover.
           E                          Gb                 E         B
Well I've found a better method of pretending you were just some lover...
