D I didn't sleep at all last night D I thought my heart had mastered the run of these seas A But they appear not to care about calming lately Bm A I awoke with a smart and a look at the phone. A G I swear that I would have called you if I'd been sure you were alone. D And doesn't that drive things home? D The hardest time to forget is when sleep clears your mind, D Bringing up what might have been, and who's by her side. A And if I appear forlorn, that's the reason truly. Bm A Should I find myself a surrogate to keep the winters warm G Blame her for my former love and blunt her of her charms? D Blunt her of her charms? D Oh dear Saint Patrick, I pray for some water D Just let me quench my thirst this morning after. A And this girl by my side, well who knows the future? Bm A But if I appear forgetful she's the reason on my mind G If you detect a smile it's as I dream of foreign lands D And letting things get out of hand A D Is exactly what I've got planned!
