           A               F#m11         D         E
Just that... sweet little mystery that breaks my heart,
           A               F#m11            E
Just that... sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           A               F#m11         D         E
Oy, that...  sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
           A               F#m11            E
Just that... sweet little mystery makes me try!


A                              F#m11
    Friends all tell me that I look so sad,
D                                  E
    And they don't need to ask me why------,
A                               F#m11
    They know the reason that I feel so bad,
D                             E
    Since the night you said...  good - bye!


Bm9
       It's not the letters that you just don't write,
F#m11
       It's not the arms of some new friend,
Bm9
       It's not the crying in the dead of the night,
     F#m11                   E
That keeps me hanging on, waiting for the end!


           A               F#m11         D         E
Just that... sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
           A               F#m11            E
Just that... sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           A               F#m11         D         E
Oo, that...  sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
                A                F#m11            E
It's just that...  sweet little mystery makes me try!


A                                   F#m11
    I watch the street, I watch the radio,
D                         E
    I don't need to turn... it on------,
A                                F#m11
    Another friend comes by, and tries to say hello,
D                         E
    Another weekend's al----most gone!


Bm9
       It's not the letters that you just don't write,
F#m11
       It's not the arms of some new friend,
Bm9
       It's not the crying in the depth of the night,
     F#m11                        E
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end!


           A               F#m11         D         E
It's that... sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
           A               F#m11            E
Just that... sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           A               F#m11         D         E
Oo, that...  sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
                A                F#m11            E
It's just that...  sweet little mystery makes me try!

A
    The time is flying fast,
   F#m11          D                          E
And I don't care...  to spend another night... alone,
A                            F#m11
    I want to see you, but I don't know where,
D                            E
    Till then I'm walking on--- my own!


Bm9
       It's not the letters that you just don't write,
F#m11
       It's not the arms of some new friend,
Bm9
       It's not the crying in the depth of the night,
     F#m11                        E
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end!

It's just that... sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           A               F#m11         D         E
Oh, that...  sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
                A                F#m11            E
It's just that...  sweet little mystery makes me... try!


      A               F#m11         D         E
