verse: E B7
chorus: A E B7 E A E A B7 E

save your smile for the boy
who will find the heart you thought you'd lost
& when your trial is truly done

& i'm not trying to be your saviour
though the thought may pass behind my eye
i'm looking forward to the day your
the day your love will pass me by

a railroad walk, a handheld talk
a heart that knows when to give in
a long sad look, an open book
a girl who knows she's wearing thin

& i can see that you need comfort
though i will never see you cry
i can't take all, but i'll take some hurt
the day your love will pass me by

[instr. verse]

we will learn to say goodbye
& live with all the damage done
& i'm no cure, but i can say
i've loved as much as anyone

[repeat first chorus]
