Intro:
D G G/F♯ x2
  
She was once 
D
mine, that smile that 
G
shines
  
from the glossy m
D
agazine that’s stuck inside the Sunday 
G
Times.
  
She was s
D
o sweet on Christmas 
G
Eve,
  
with the snow set 
D
deep, when we went walking through the 
G
pines.
  
I had just been 
Em
fired and her first offer had ar
G
rived,
  
and the New Year would see her 
D
flying far away from me,
A
though I didn’t know it at the 
D
time.
D G G/F♯ x2
  
With outstretched 
D
hands, now she c
G
ommands
  
A famous 
D
figure for every p
A
icture.
  
And she 
D
stands up strong, and she de
G
mands
  
And they de
D
liver. Yeah, she’s a 
A
fixture.
  
And it’s a 
Em
mixture of dumb jealousy and 
G
fear
  
that I might feel should she 
D
appear, just like it hasn’t been three 
A
years
  
And there’s a 
Em
distance to her voice over the 
G
phone,
  
and that’s because she stands a
D
lone, while I’m still sitting 
A
here
  
Girl, you see me h
Em
ere, on another quiet 
Bm
night,
  
I will wait until a
D
nother indistinguishable 
A
day arrives
  
out
Em
side, where the light’s even and 
Bm
bright,
  
where my life’s sweet as it’s 
D
(slightly disappointingly), just 
A
gliding softly 
Em
by
  
Girl, you won’t 
Bm
wait for me—in some secluded 
D
stand of trees,
  
on some Christmas Eve some 
A
god was kind enough to set a
Em
side—
  
although I’d 
Bm
love you to. But I’m proud of you.
  
God 
D
knows I’m feeling really stupid 
A
now for ever having said good
D
bye.
D G G/F♯ x2
  
During the 
D
fight I said, “yeah 
G
right,” 
G/F♯
  
when you in
D
sisted that I’d visit, that you’d 
G
write.
  
Now, I 
G/F♯
know you’re working 
D
hard so I never hear from you and th
G
at’s fi
G/F♯
ne.
  
You look the 
D
same on TV as when you were 
G
mine. 
G/F♯
  
Em
walk in from the k
Bm
itchen and I f
D
inger the re
A
mote control.
  
Em
watch you from the 
Bm
distance; you go 
D
walking through the 
A
terminal
  
I re
Em
member every in
Bm
stance when you 
D
stunned me. You’re so l
A
ovely.
  
You’re so 
Em
smart.
  
So, go turn their h
G
eads, go knock them d
A
ead, go break their 
D
hearts.
D G G/F♯ (repeat)
Go break their hearts 
Baby, break their hearts 
And I know you will
End on D

The verse sounds nice as D - G - A - D as well
