Intro: A  A6  A  A6  A9  E E 2x    A  A6  A9 A

A
I saw her today

I saw her face
                F#m
It was a face I loved
                         A
And I knew, I had to run away
                             F#m
And get down on my knees and pray

That they'd go away
               A  A6  A  A6  A9
And still they begin
            F#m
Needles and pins
                  D
Because of all my pride
                    E
The tears I'm gonna hide

                  A
Oh, thought I was smart

I'd won a heart
               F#m
Didn't think I do

But now you see
                       A
She's worse to him and me

Let her go ahead
                 F#m
take this love instead

And one day she will see
                 A  A6  A  A6  A9
Just how to say "please"
                 F#m
Get down on her knees
                       D
Ayeah, that's how they begin
                              E
She'll feel those needles and pins
                     E
Hurtin' her, hurtin' her

 C#m                                 B                          B Bb A
Why can't I stop and tell myself I'm wrong, I'm wrong, so wrong
 A                                        Ab
Why can't I stand up, and tell myself I'm strong

 As                C#   Bbm  F#  Ab
Because I saw her today ... (repeat 1fst verse - Tonartwechsel)

Hm                             A
Breathless drive on a downtown street
Hm                           A
Motorbike ride in the midday heat
D                             A
Dust and harm from the desert skies
                   E
run oh we'd run it still burned our eyes

       Hm                                   A
Oh yes we may walk on the wild wild side of life
    Hm                                               A
And our movements trace lay a stranger close by your side
 D                                 A
The shadows of the promise you can take my hand
                   E
Show me the way to understand

              Hm                            E
Refr.: So if you think you know how to love me
               Hm                    A
       And you think you know what I mean
                  Hm             A
       And if you really, really want me to stay
         E
       You've got to leave the way
                  Hm                         A
       Yes if you think you know how to love me
               Hm                     A
       And you think you can stand by me
                  Hm             A
       And if you really, really want me to stay
         E                     A
       You've got to leave the way

 Hm                          A
Reckless night in a nameless town
 Hm                                      A
Then we moved the other side in a silent sound
 D                           A
Beached and wept with desert waves
                        E
That's where we slept, knowing we'd been save

            Hm                                            A
Now you may think you can walk on the wild wild side with me
  Hm                                               A
There's a lot I can learn and a lot that I yearn to see
 D                                    A
Now you've got my life, lying in your hands
                             E
So it's up to you to make me understand  (repeat Refr.)

       A        Hm E   A
End:   oh oh oh oh mmh mmh




Sally called when she got the word,
And she said: "I suppose you've heard -
About Alice"
When I rushed to the window
And I looked outside,
And I could hardly believe my eyes -
As a big limousine rolled up
Into Alice's drive...

Oh, I don't know why she's leaving,
Or where she's gonna go,
I guess she's got her reasons,
But I just don't want to know,
'Cos for twenty-four years
I've been living next door to Alice.
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
Now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice...


We grew up together,
Two kids in the park,
We carved our initials,
Deep in the bark,
Me and Alice.
Now she walks through the door
With her head held high,
Just for a moment, I caught her eye,
As a big limousine pulled slowly
Out of Alice's drive.


Oh, I don't know why she's leaving,
Or where she's gonna go,
I guess she's got her reasons,
But I just don't want to know,
'Cos for twenty-four years
I've been living next door to Alice.
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
Now I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice...


And Sally called back and asked how I felt,
And she said: "I know how to help -
Get over Alice".
She said: "Now Alice is gone,
But I'm still here,
You know I've been waiting
For twenty-four years..."
And a big limousine disappeared...


I don't know why she's leaving,
Or where she's gonna go,
I guess she's got her reasons,
But I just don't want to know,
'Cos for twenty-four years
I've been living next door to Alice.
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance,
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
But I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...



Now I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...
