D#5        A#/D           G#/C             C#5
we hit the highway in the shimmer glare of summer
  D#5          A#/D           G#/C            C#5
  and past the window all the trees flew by behind her
D#5           A#/D       G#/C       C#5
she tuned the radio 'til music was around us
  D#5       A#/D           G#/C             C#5
  a rushing calm around my heart I knew had found us

        G
        it feels so good to me
          G#5
          I have to make you see
                                 
                D#5           A#5  G5      G#5
                why does this ever have to end?
                  D#5       A#5        G5      G#5
                  I know commitment is not the trend
                D#5        A#5           G5   G#5
                don't misunderstand what I intend
                  D#5             A#5     G5      G#5
                  when I say this doesn't have to 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.
