Happy Days and Auld Lang Syne †

He said, Dear, Iím leaving, right there in the hallway
As the party roared on all around
And her head wouldnít turn, O she couldnít look at him
     F#            C#m     F#
In a whirlpool she quietly drowned

G#m               D#       G#m                D#     
And she said to herself, I wonít cry, I wonít grieve
G#m                     D#            E
But Iíll laugh and Iíll flow with the wine
With the fast love of strangers weíll sing Sweet Bye and Bye
      F#                 B
Happy Days and Auld Lang Syne

How I wish I knew all the old songs theyíre singing
Such comfort theyíre bringing  to a heart thatís as empty as mine
     C#m			   E 
O it lifts you so high, does the Sweet Bye and Bye
      F#                 B
Happy Days and Auld Lang Syne

And she said, Iíll be wearing my smile like a mask
And Iíll care for each stranger I kiss
And no-one will know that Iím wounded and cheated
So close to my moment of bliss
And sometimes you never connect with a song
Till itís telling the way that you feel
Putting words to your story, all the pain and the glory
How can it be written so real

How I wish I knew...
