From within, a dim light cast two silhouettes

on the shade..oh, what a lovely couple they ma-ade.

Put his arms around your waist..
 D        G
(held you tight.)

Kisses I could almost taste..
 D      G
(in the night.)
G                      C          D
Wonder why I'm not the guy, whose silhouette's
       G                 C         D
on the shade..I couldn't hide, the tears in my eye-eyes.

 D         G
(down your door.)
G                          C        D

Vowed that you and I, would be two silhouettes on
