Held His Gaze Composer: Henning Ohlenbusch Album: Looks Like I'm Tall - Henning Ohlenbusch https://youtu.be/iOMgmr2RsYI [intro] Bm[add4] - Bb+/F# - F# [verse] D A Two drops falling down, Bbdim Bm Right into the mix. A G The pastry takes on power, A D When tears are in the flower. D A It rattles in her hands, Bbdim Bm The fork against the plate. A G The napkin falls on tiles. A Em Bb+/F# - F# The sugar falls in piles. [verse] D A The superstitious bride, Bbdim Bm Is laughing in the car. A G She’s lighting little fires, A D While he’s outside fixing tires. D A But the smile fades from her face, Bbdim Bm Like her breath fades from the window. A G Of all the days to rain, A Em Bb+/F# - F# Of all the days to rain. [chorus] Bm A D Em A7 Gmaj7 Bb+/F# - F# But she held his gaze for days. [verse] D A The children at his knees, Bbdim Bm Are outside getting wet. A G They’ve knocked down a bunch of trees, A D And they’re not finished yet. [verse] D A Because they saw it in his face, Bbdim Bm And they heard it when he talked. A G They spread nails all over the place, A Em Bb+/F# - F# And then they hid behind a rock. [chorus] Bm A D Em A7 Gmaj7 Bb+/F# - F# But she held his gaze for days. [bridge] B Em Is it time to tell them? A Gmaj7 Should we make it public? B Em We have such a secret. A Gmaj7 Is it really worth keeping? C9 D She’s sleeping down the hall. [instrumental verse] D A Bbdim Bm A G A D D A Bbdim Bm A G A Em Bb+/F# - F# [chorus] Bm A D Em A7 Gmaj7 Bb+/F# - F# And she held his gaze for days.
