Intro: Ab,Cm,Db,Ab

Verse 1

Ab                          Cm
There I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles
Db                           Ab
Same old tired, lonely place
Ab                     Cm
Walls of insincerity Shifiting eyes and vancancy 
Db                           Ab
vanished when I saw your face
                     Db                 Fm     Eb
All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you
Ab
Your eyes whispered "have we met?"
Cm                                Db                         Ab
Across the room your silhouette starts to make it's way to me
    Ab                            Cm
The playful conversation starts Counter all your quick remarks 
      Db                     Ab
like passing notes in secrecy
        Db                 Fm     Eb
And it was enchanting to meet you
                    Db                Fm     Eb
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

Chorus:

Db                Ab         Eb               Db
 This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
            Ab              Eb             Db
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
              Ab      Eb               Db
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
                    Fm    Eb    Ab
I was enchanted to meet you

Verse 2

      Ab                           Cm
The lingering question kept me up 2am, who do you love?
  Db                        Ab
I wonder till I'm wide awake
Ab                              Cm
Now I'm pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door
      Db                       Ab
I'd open up and you would say,
        Db                 Fm     Eb
It was enchanting to meet you
                    Db              Fm     Eb
All I know is I was enchanted to meet you

Chorus

Db                Ab         Eb               Db
 This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
            Ab              Eb             Db
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
              Ab      Eb               Db  Fm  Eb
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
Db               Ab          Eb              Db      
 This night is flawless, don't you let it go
          Ab                 Eb           Db
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
              Ab      Eb                Db
I'll spend forever wondering if you know
                    Fm    Eb  Ab
I was enchanted to meet you

Bridge
                        Db                        Fm
This is me praying that this was the very first page
               Eb           Db
Not where the story line ends
                            Fm           Eb       Db
My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again
                           Fm             Eb           Db
These are the words I held back as I was leaving too soon
                   Fm    Eb  Ab
I was enchanted to meet you
Ab                             Cm
Please don't be in love with someone else
Db                           Ab
Please don't have somebody waiting on you
Ab                             Cm
Please don't be in love with someone else
Db                           Ab
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

Db                Ab         Eb               Db
 This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
            Ab              Eb             Db
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
              Ab      Eb               Db  Fm  Eb
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew

 This night is flawless, don't you let it go
          Ab                 Eb           Db
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
              Ab      Eb                Db
I'll spend forever wondering if you know
                    Fm    Eb  Ab
I was enchanted to meet you
Ab                             Cm
Please don't be in love with someone else

Please don't have somebody waiting on you
