A very popular track now available on the  'Air Age Anthology'  CD. It 
is played with a triplet feel - 1,2,3, 1,2,3, 1,2,3, 1,2,3, etc - but 
play it how you want, my tab is just a guide.

Lyrics: In the back of your car Where the light from the stars Caught our eyes in a moment of blue It was then that I knew All my feelings were true And what lovers like us have to do I looked at the time And the time ran so fast Like an arrow that flies to the heart And I thought that a lifetime Would not be enough time To delight in this pleasure so dark Lovers are mortal Their hearts are the size of night clouds Lovers are mortal Their actions are jealous and proud Lovers are losers And who knows the bruises they bear For lovers are mortal As frail as the breath that they share In the shadows of doorways Where lovers are always The victims of torches and chance I would hold you so near 'til the scent of your hair Sent me reeling my mind in a trance Oh I still can recall The soft music of rain falling Silver and cool in the night And it washed through our love Like a river in flood Like an ocean of tears shining bright And I like to believe That the memories we weave Are the bittersweet echoes of dreams In the evening their call strays From yesterdays hallways Like the faraway chimes on the breeze Lovers are mortal Their hearts are the size of night clouds Lovers are mortal Their actions are jealous and proud Lovers are losers And who knows the bruises they bear For lovers are mortal As frail as the breath that they share Words and music by Bill Nelson.
