Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

She  Elvis Costello

[C#]She may be the face I can't fo[Bbm]rget
The trace of pleasure or re[F#]gret
Maybe my treasure or the pr[C#]ice I have to pa[A#]y
[Dm#]She may be the song that summer sin[Fm#]gs
May be the chill that autumn br[C#]ings
May be a hundred different things
Within the mea[G#]sure of a da[C#]y         [F#]     [G#]

She may be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a Heaven or a Hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell....

Brigde: C C/a F C A Dm Fm C F G C C7

S[A]he, who always seems so happy in a [E]crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so pr[D]oud
No one's allowed to see them wh[C#]en they cry
[Fm#]She maybe the lov[B]e that cannot ho[E]pe to last
May come to [C#]me from shadows in the pa[D#]st
That I rem[D7#]ember 'till the day I [G#]die
She maybe the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I care for through the rough and ready years

Me, I'll take the laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is
Oh, she....
