think to make it easier to play.


[Verse]
     F                  A7                   Dm
In a foreign place, the saving grace was the feeling
Cm                              Bb
That it was a heart that he was stealing
          Gm                        F
Oh, he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement
    A7                           Dm
The eyes are bright, he couldn’t wait to get away
      Cm                           Bb
And I bet the Juliet was just the icing on the cake
Am                Gm     Bb
 Make no mistake, no


[Chorus]
                               Bbm                      Am
And even if somehow we would have shown you the place you wanted
          D7                                   Gm                  Bbm
Well, I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own


[Verse]
      F              A7                        Dm
And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch
      Cm                            Bb
Well, all the little promises, they don’t mean much
             Gm
When there’s memories to be made
      F                   A7                  Dm
And I hope you're holding hands by New Year's Eve
     Cm                         Bb
They made it far too easy to believe
             Am                        Gm           Bb
That true romance can't be achieved these days


[Chorus]
                              Bbm                       Am
And even if somebody could have shown you the place you wanted
       D7                                   Gm
Well I sure you could have made it that bit better on your own
            Bbm
You are the only ones who know


F  A7  Dm  Cm  Bb  Am  Gm
