[chorus]
G/C 
  Now and then you see a soul and you fall in love
    F/C
You can't do a thing about it

[verse]
C                            F/C 
 In you I saw someone that I recognized
C                             F/C 
 Had no idea what was in your mind
C                          F/C 
 I met your eyes and I was hypnotized
C                         Fadd9/C
 I let our lives become entwined

[repeat chorus]

I feel so badly, darlin', all the time
I have tortured you so long
But I am helpless in this pantomime
I am aware that I was wrong

[repeat chorus]

[bridge]
           You...

But though you knew that I was twice your age
To make you laugh seemed 'youth' enough
I thought we'd love and then you'd turn the page
I'd have to suffer your rebuff

And it was me who had the most to gain
Despite the fact that I now had lost
The only love that ever caused me pain
I feel like a double head was tossed

[pre-chorus]
C                                       F/C
 Now and then you see your soul and you fall in love

[repeat chorus]
