[Verse 1]

D                        F#m
He's pining for her in a people carrier
               Em                                               A
There might be buildings and pretty things to see like that but architecture won't do
            D                                     
Although it might say a lot about the city or town
        F#m
I don't care what they've got keep on turning them down
         Em                            
It don't say the funny things she does
           A                                          D
Don't even try and cheer him up because it just won't happen

[Verse 2]

             D                           F#m
He's got the feeling again, this time on the aeroplane
               Em                                          A
There might be teles in the back of the seats in front but Rodney and Del won't do
            D                                                           
Although it might take your mind off the aches and the pains
              F#m
Laugh when he falls through the bar but you're feeling the same
           Em                                          A
'Cause she isn't there to hold your hand, she won't be waiting for you when you land


[Chorus]

              Bm           G
It feels like she's just nowhere near
          Bm             G
You could well be out on your ear
                   Bm                      E
This thought comes closely followed by the fear
        G            F#m        A           D
And the thought of it makes you feel a bit ill


[Instrumental]

D  F#m  Em  A  x2


[Verse 3]

D                          F#m                                  Em
Yesterday I saw a girl who looked like someone you might knock about with, 
           A
And almost shouted
           D                            F#m               
And then reality kicked in within us it seems as we become the winners
    Em                             A
You lose a bit of summat, and half wonder if you won it at all


[Chorus]

                  Bm                G
And don't say owt cos you've got no idea
    Bm            G
And she's still nowhere near
                      Bm                      E
And the thought comes closely followed by the fear
        G            F#m              A   N.C.
And the thought of it makes you feel a bit ill


[Outro]

   D             Em                   F#m                   G   A        Em
Despair in the departure lounge, it's one and they'll still be around at three
                     A
No signal and low battery
N.C.
What's happened to me?
