C                                         Fmaj7
She sits by herself in the Heartbreak Cafť,
Em                                  G7
Stirring her coffee and cream.
       C                                    Fmaj7
She picks at her fingers, dividing the blame,
       Em                                      G7
And knows itís the end of the dream.

CHORUS
Fmaj7                                            C
Heartache to Heartache, they circled each other,
G7                                           C        - C7
Both of them drowning in fear.
                Fmaj7                             C
Through Tangos and Foxtrots, Two-steps and Waltzes,
G7                                   C       / G7 / C
Afraid to let go the veneer.

He is sitting alone in a bar on the corner,
Swallowing doubles of Rye.
The pain in his eyes, and the weight on his shoulders,
Betrays the shadows inside.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Am                                               Em
So hereís to the lovers, who stand with the others,
Am                                                Em
Proclaiming their love before all.
        Am                                         Em
And hereís to the losers, who deal with the bruises,
        G7                Fmaj7       G7
And rise up despite evíry fall.

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK 

CHORUS

CODA
             G7                               C
Youíve got to let go the veneer.
