Never saw the morning, 'til I stayed up all night
Cb Db/Gb|Abm/Db|Bbm/F# Gb Ebm7 Gb7
Never saw the sunshine, 'til you turned out the light

Never saw my hometown, until I stayed away too long
Cb Db/Gb|Dbsus4|Db Cb9 Cb9/Db Gb
Never heard the melody, 'til I needed the song

Never saw the white line , 'til I was leaving you behind
Never knew I needed you, 'til I was caught up in a bind
Never spoke I love you, until I cursed you in vain
Never felt my heart-strings, 'til I really went insane

Never saw the east coast 'til I moved to the west
Never saw the moonlight, until it shone of your breast
Never saw your heart, 'til someone tried to steal it away
Never saw your tears, until they rolled down your face

Some people play hard to get, I play hard to want
