Intro: Am D C D (4x)
[Am]You want to know why I [D]hate you?
Well I~ll [C]try and explain[D]...
You r[Am]emember that day in [D]Paris
When we [C]wandered through the [D]rain
And [Am]promised to each [D]other
That we~d [C]always think the [D]same
And [Am]dreamed that dream to [D]be two souls as [C]one
And [Am]stopped just as the [D]sun set
And [C]waited for the [D]night
Out[Am]side a glittering [D]building
Of [C]glittering glass and [D]burning light...
And in the road before us stood a weary greyish man
Who held a child upon his back
A small boy by the hand
The three of them were dressed in rags and thinner than air
And all six eyes stared fixedly on you
The [Bm]father~s eyes said [A]beautiful
How [Bm]beautiful you [A]are
The [Bm]boy~s eyes said how [A]beautiful
She [Bm]shimmers like a star
The [Am]child~s eyes uttered [Em]nothing
But [F]mute and utter joy
And [Am]filled my heart with [Em]shame for us
For the [F]way we are
(The [Am]way we are[Em])[F]
[D] [Am] [D] [Am] [D] [Am] [F] [F]  
I [Am]turned to look at [D]you
To read my [C]thoughts upon your [D]face
And [Am]gazed so deep in[D]to your eyes
So [C]beautiful and s[D]trange
Un[Am]til you spoke and [D]showed me under[C]standing is a [D]dream
-I [Am]hate these people [D]staring
Make them [C]go away from m[D]e-
The father~s eyes said beautiful
How beautiful you are
The boy~s eyes said how beautiful
She shimmers like a star
The child~s eyes uttered nothing
But pride and utter joy
And stilled my heart with sadness
For the way we are
And [D]this is why I [Am]hate you
And [D]how I under[Am]stand
That [D]no-one ever [Am]knows or loves anot[F]her
Or loves anothe[Am]r
