It [Am]started with a dedication
"l[C]ost in admiration - happy [F]birthday - i'm forever yours - [G]blossom"
Faded red inside a t[Am]iny book of butterflies
I [C]smiled surprised at how when flickered t[F]hrough
The wings flew by spelled out [G]my name
Si[Dm]x months went by the summer lost
O[C]bsessively the letters dropped i[G]nto my life
The same soft blood smooth f[Am]lowing hand
"please try to under[Dm]stand - i have to see you - have to f[C]eel you -
Tell you all the ways i [G]need you - yours forever in l[Am]ove"
[F]Strange attraction spreads its wings
It [C]varies but the smallest things
You n[Dm]ever know how anything will ch[Em]ange
S[F]trange attraction spreads its wings
And [C]alters but the smallest things
You n[Dm]ever know how anything will f[G]ade
Intro
The y[Am]ear grew old incessantly she w[C]rote to me
She'd started smoking p[F]oetry!
I laughed in recogn[G]ition of a favorite phrase
She'd p[Am]ulled me in...
I answered her
A c[C]hristmas card in sepia
A[F]rranging when and where
And how the t[G]wo of us should meet...
Her o[Dm]pening so well prepared
A n[C]ervous smile
I couldn't take my e[G]yes from her
She whispered
"can i [Am]use some of your lipstick?"
It was p[Dm]erfect so believable
I c[C]ouldn't help but feel that it was r[G]eal
And kissing crimson fell i[Am]nto her waiting arms
[F]Strange attraction spreads its wings
It [C]varies but the smallest things
You n[Dm]ever know how anything will c[Em]hange
[F]Strange attraction spreads its wings
And a[C]lters but the smallest things
You [Dm]never know how anything will [G]fade
INTRO
So a[Am]lone into the cold new year w[C]ithout another word from her
I [F]wrote to ask if we could maybe [G]meet again before the spring
But [Am]weeks went by with no reply [C]untill once more my birthday came
And [F]with it my surprise but this time [G]nothing was the same...
"i'm [Dm]sorry - blame infatuation - [C]blame imagination
I was [G]sure you'd be the one but i was w[Am]rong -
It seems reality de[Dm]stroys our dreams - i won't forget you [C]blossom"
Faded red inside a [G]tiny book of old good[Am]byes...
[F]Strange attraction spreads its wings
It v[C]aries but the smallest things
You [Dm]never know how anything will c[Em]hange
[F]Strange attraction spreads its wings
And [C]alters but the smallest things
You n[Dm]ever know, you never know, and you never know...
well there you go. and since this song took me forever to do, i ask that you NOT give
this out to other people unless you email me first. user_navi@yahoo.com thank you
