 C               F              C

You lined me up
 F 
Across the room
 C 
Two falling sparks
       G 
One willing fool

And I, I always knew

That I would love you from afar

 C               F              C           F 
But I've been living on the crumbs of your love
 C                F       C 
And I'm starving now


       G          F               C     F     C 
And that is the way that we remain
     G               F           C 
Ah that will be the way that we remain
    F     C 
Oh no no no
 F     C    F    C 
No no no no

You lined me up
 F

One willing fool
      Am                F 
And I, I always knew

That I would love you from afar

That I would love you from afar


Interlude: C  F  C  G  Am 


              F           C 
It shouldn't come as a surprise
            G                       Am 
What I'm feeling, what I'm feeling now
               F          C 
It shouldn't come as a surprise
        G                           Am 
She got darling hazel eyes

What I'm feeling, what I'm feeling now
