G             Em  D      C
Remember that New Years Eve

          D               G
We were frightened by a firework?

G         Em   D C         D       G
You could not believe the fuss I made

G             Em       D  C
I should have laughed it off

     D                 G
I should have left it lying

G      Em  D  C   D
I did not receive much sympathy

G             Em  D    C
Remember that we were poor

           D               G
Though so young as not to notice

G        Em   D  C      D         G
We could ill-afford to paint the town


G            Em   D     C
You had your father's charm

     D                   G
And thus your mother's Volvo

G        Em    D C         D
It wasn't long before you drove me home

Dadd12 (that is, play 5th fret on high E string)
It took until October

Cadd12 (that is, play 3rd fret on high E string)
To win you over

G             Em   D       C
Remember that New Year's Eve

         D               G
We were frightened by a firework?

G         Em   D    C          D      G
When I'd watch you leave, the fuss I made

G        Em    D    C
I made myself calm down

       D              G
And I made myself a promise:

G       Em   D    C            D
I would not conceive of taking no for an answer

D/F#                                 Cadd12
Though you kept me guessing and your distance

                      Em
Were it not for my persistence

          Bm              G
We would never have been lovers

D/F#                           Cadd12
You kept your distance and me guessing

            Em
Finally acquiescing

      Bm           G
only after I'd discovered

D/F#
You kept the things I sent you

Cadd12
The lengths I went to

Great lengths...
