[Dm]When the spell is broken
When the spell is broken
How you ever gonna [Am]keep enough
You cant cry if you d[Gm]ont know how.
When the spell is [Dm]broken
When the spell is broken
All the joy is [Am]gone from her face
Welcome back to the [Gm]human race
How [Am]long can the flame of [Bb]love remain
When you [C]curse and you [Bb]fight
And [C]never see the [Bb]light
Or hear a word [C]spoken
When the spell is [Dm]broken
When the spell is broken
(2nd verse)
When the spell is broken
All your magic and your ways and schemes
All your lies come and tear at your dreams
When the Spell is broken
When the Spell is broken
Are you handing her that same old line
It's just straws in the wind this time
When Love has died, there's none left starry eyed
No kiss and no tears
No farewell souveniers, not even a token
When the Spell is broken
(3rd verse)
(solo)
Don't swear your heart
From the very start
Love letters you wrote
Get pushed back down your throat
And leave you choking
When the Spell is broken

WHEN THE SPELL IS BROKEN- Richard Thompson
[Dm]When the sp[Gm]ell is br[Dm]oken, when the spe[Gm]ll is bro[Dm]ken
How you e[F]ver gonna k[Am]eep her now
You can't cry if you [Gm]don't know how
When the sp[F]ell is b[Dm]roken, when the spe[Gm]ll is br[Dm]oken
All the j[F]oy it is g[Am]one from her face
Welcome back to the [Gm]human race
How [Am]long can the flame of [Bb]love remain
When you [C]curse and f[Bb]ight and [C]never see li[Bb]ke
Or hear a like s[C]poken
When the spell is b[Dm]roken
(can't cry if you don't know ho[Gm]w, [Dm]can't cry if you don't know h[Gm]ow)
When the spell is b[Dm]roken (can't cry if you don't know h[Gm]ow)
Oh when the spell is b[Dm]roken
All your ma[F]gic and your w[Am]ays and schemes
All your lies come and tear at your dreams
When the spell is broken (can't cry if you don't know how)
When the spell is broken
Are you handing her that same old line
It's just straws in the wind this time
When love has died, there's none left starry eyed
No kiss and no tears
No farewell souveniers, not even a token
When the spell is broken
SOLO (over Dm Gm)
Don't s[Am]wear your heart from the ve[Bb]ry start
Love letters you wrote
Get pushed back down your throat
And leave you choking
When the spell is broken (when the spell when the spell when the spell)
When the spell is broken
When the spell is broken, when the spell is broken
When the spell is broken
Can't cry if you don't know how, can't cry if you don't know how
Can't cry if you don't know how, can't cry if you don't know how
NOTE: I believe I found a few more chords and reordered the words a bit,
but in general this is a rip off of the previous version.
