Verse 1:

  Em         E+        Em7   E+
I longed for you since I was born;
  Em    E+    Em7      E+
A woman sensi-tive and warm,
    D7sus    D7    D7sus  D7, B7
And that you were.

     Em        E+
With pride and strength,
   Em7       E+
No one would test,
    Em       E+   Em7     E+
But yet have femi-nine fi-nesse;
    D7sus   D7    D7sus  D7, B7
And so much more.

Chorus 1:

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,
             Bm7b5            B7sus  E7
Down to this cold, cold world.

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,
             Bm7b5            B7sus  E7
Down to this cold, cold world.

Em  E+  Em7  E+ (x2)

Verse 2:

  Em     E+          Em7     E+
A female Shakespeare of your time,
     Em       E+      Em7     E+
With looks to blow Pi-casso's mind;
    D7sus   D7     D7sus  D7, B7
You were the best.

     Em   E+         Em7       E+
Your body moved with grace and song,
     Em     E+      Em7     E+
Like sympho-nies by Bach or Brahms;
D7sus     D7   D7sus  D7, B7
 Neverthe-less.            Oh, oh;

Chorus 2:

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,

Down to this cold, cold world.

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,
             Bm7b5            B7sus  E7
Down to this cold, cold world.

Do do do, do do do,

The passion burning in your heart,
      Fm          F+        Fm7    F+
Would make hell's fire seem like a spark;
D#7sus        D#7  D#7sus  D#7, C7
 Where did it go?

     Fm       F+        Fm7  F+
Just why that you would over-night,
     Fm      F+       Fm7  F+
Turn love to stone as cold as ice,
     D#7sus D#7   D#7sus  D#7, C7
I'll never  know.
