Intro: E

 E
 I was reminiscing just the other day

 While having coffee all alone and Lord it took me away
            A
 Back to a first-glance feeling on New York time

 Back when you fit in my poems like a perfect rhyme


  E
 Took off fast through the green light go

 Hey skip the conversation and you already know
          Dbm
 I left a note on the door with a joke we'd made
      A
 And that was the first day


      B     Dbm      A
 And darling it was good 
  B     Dbm     A
 Never looking down
      B           Dbm       A
 And right there where we stood 
             E       A
 Was holy ground


   E
 Spinning like a girl in a brand new dress

 We had this big wide city all to ourselves
                 A
 We blocked the noise with the sound of I need you

 And for the first time I had something to lose


          E
 Well I guess we fell apart in the usual way

 And the story's got dust on every page
      Dbm
 Sometimes I wonder how you think about it now
        A
 And I see your face in every crowd

 
      B     Dbm      A
 And darling it was good 
  B     Dbm     A
 Never looking down
      B           Dbm       A
 And right there where we stood 
             E       A    Dbm   A
 Was holy ground


E                                                   A 
 Tonight I'm gonna dance for all that we've been through

 But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you
E                                               A
 Tonight I'm gonna dance like you were in this room
                                                  B
 But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you

 
Dbm      A
 It was good 
  B    Dbm      A
 Never looking down
      B           Dbm       A
 And right there where we stood 
             E     A    Dbm    A
 Was holy ground


E                         A                        Dbm 
 Tonight I'm gonna dance for all that we've been through
                         A
 But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you
E                         A                     Dbm
 Tonight I'm gonna dance like you were in this room
                         A
 But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you
