Refrain Chords
Intro: Bm---pause

   I look out and I  see the rain
A                   DM7
   As it falls on my   window pane
GM7             Em
   And the music  that's in my heart
C#(/F)          Gb
   Is a sad refrain.
Bm                Em
   Endless traffic  of sounds and sights
A                   DM7
   Midst the glitter   of neon lights
GM7               Em
   Still the music  that's in my heart
C#(/F)         Gb
   Is the same sad refrain.

    B              G#m          C#m
   Mem'ries of you follow everywhere I go
    Gb                          B
   Down the high and by-ways of my days
G#                                C#m
   Music of your laughter fills my   every dream
   C#m6(/A#)           Eb     G#m     C#m, Gb,
   Like     a love song  from long ago
B              G#m                 C#m
   Never ending   streams of faces come and go
   Gb                             B
   Million diff'rent people all around
F#m7       B7                      EM7
   No use searching for I'll never find you there
       C#m        F#           B    Em-Gb-Bm---
   For you are far  beyond compare.

(Repeat 2nd stanza of Refrain except last word)

          B    G#m-C#m-
         Gb       B
   La ra ra ra ra...
F#m7                               B
   No use searching for I'll never,
   no use searching for I'll never find you there
       C#m        Gb           B-G-B-
   For you are far  beyond compare.

                  Em         A                DM7
   Take a jet to a  hideaway, from the humdrum   of everyday
GM7             Em                  C#(/F)             Gb
   Yet the music  that's in my heart      is a sad refrain.
Bm             Em
   Fluctuations  in the market scene
A                   DM7
   Fill my Dow Jones   with every beam
GM7             Em
   And the music  that's in my heart
C#(/F)         Gb
   Is  the same  sad refrain.

About the artist behind Refrain Chords:

Jose Mari Chan is a popular Filipino singer-songwriter and businessman. He is considered as one of the Philippines' most foremost popular music writers, with his songs as popular now as it was in the 1960’s when he recorded his first hits. He was born in Iloilo on March 11, 1945. He graduated with a degree in economics from Ateneo de Manila University in 1967.

His first single Afterglow, released in 1967 was a big hit, despite the monopoly of foreign acts such as the Beatles and the Beach Boys in the Philippine music industry. He was able to release his first long playing album in 1969. From 1970 to 1974, he composed more than 20 theme songs for movies, earning for him several nominations at the FAMAS Awards. He continued to write songs even as he stayed in the United States for more than 10 years; and occasionally, his songs were recorded by foreign artists. He had a breakthrough in 1989, when his album "Constant Change" not only was named Album of the Year by the Awit Awards but also reached Diamond Record in terms of sales; it also enjoyed high patronage in international countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia. His Christmas album "Christmas In Our Hearts" reached triple platinum status in 1990. In 2005 he composed "We're All Just One", the theme song of the 2005 Southeast Asian Games.

Among admirers (especially non-Filipinos) he is known as the "Filipino Jimmy Webb" in honor of the intricate English-language lyrics which set his songs apart from others. Much of his early music remains popular worldwide, and some of his songs have rebounded as hits for other artists, such as Lea Salonga. His music is often heard over online music channels, such as United States-based PhilRadio International. This continuing popularity has brought an increasing international following while cementing his place as a star among his countrymen.
