Close But No Cigar

F#         B
Close but no cigar
                  E
I nearly won her heart
        F#                F#7
I got so close but then my whole world
   B
Fell apart
F#7 (rest)     B
I thought we were in love
        E
We came so far
      F#                   F#7
Now she's with someone else not me
          B
Close but no cigar 

      F#
Last night I kissed her lips
            B
Just like before
              F#
But it was in her eyes
        B
She wanted something more
     Eb        Eb7       G#m
I never said the words I love you
C#m (rest)
Almost had it all
        C#m (rest)   
But I dropped the ball
            F# (rest)    F#7
And she walked right out the door 

F#7             B
Close but no cigar
               E
I nearly won her heart
            F#                     F#7
I got so close but then my whole world
      B
Fell apart
F#7 (rest)       B
I thought we were in love
      E
We came so far
                     F#
Now she's with someone else not me
F#7             B
Close but no cigar 

                  F#
I had to live without
F#7                  B
What might have been
           F#
He made his play
F#7           B
Now she's with him
      Eb        Eb7             G#m
I'll bet he tells her that he loves her
C#m (rest)                 
Well heaven knows
C#m (rest)
That I came this close
F# (with feeling)      F#7
But I won't have that chance again 

F#7             B
Close but no cigar
                  E
I nearly won her heart
        F#                     F#7
I got so close but then my whole world
      B
Fell apart
F#7 (rest)      B
I thought we were in love
         E
We came so far
                     F#
Now she's with someone else not me
F#7             B
Close but no cigar 
                     F#
Now she's with someone else not me
F#7             B
Close but no cigar
