Intro riff (also used with verses):
D#5 A#/D G#/C C#5 (x2)
[D#5]we hit the [A#/D]highway in the [G#/C]shimmer glare of [C#5]summer
[D#5]and past the [A#/D]window all the [G#/C]trees flew by be[C#5]hind her
[D#5]she tuned the [A#/D]radio 'til [G#/C]music was a[C#5]round us
[D#5]a rushing [A#/D]calm around my [G#/C]heart I knew had [C#5]found us
[G]it feels so good to me
[G#5]I have to make you see
[D#5]why does this [A#5]ever [G5]have to [G#5]end?
[D#5]I know com[A#5]mitment is [G5]not the [G#5]trend
[D#5]don't misun[A#5]derstand what [G5]I int[G#5]end
[D#5]when I say this [A#5]doesn't [G5]have to [G#5]end
we washed the dishes knowing everything was all right
and there together in the curtain drifting twilight
I know your laughter shouldn't make me feel so scared
how could I doubt you, I know how much you cared
I hear it when you sigh
but I still don't know why
why does this ever have to end?
why can't I give you my heart and hand?
I think you're too scared to understand
this doesn't ever have to end . . . go!
Interlude (x2) : F#5, G#5, A#5, C#5;
F#5, G#5, A#5, D#5!!
Main riff (x2: first with just guitar; second time, w/ bass & drums)
I see you standing by a window in the hall
our eyes collide without a single word at all
the record asks, "will you still need me when I'm 64?"
I can't imagine that I wouldn't need you more
too many tears to cry
I just won't let it die
this doesn't ever have to end
life is so long and my heart won't mend
you are my lover, you're my best friend
but this doesn't ever have to end
End on D#5.
