E6 - E
Once I was alone, so lonely and then

A               Am7               E6 - E            B7
You came out of nowhere, like the sun up from the hills;

E6 - E
Cold, cold was the wind; warm, warm were your lips,

A                 Am7                  E6 - E
Out there on that ski trail where your kiss filled me with thrills.


A            B7      E
A weekend in Canada,   a change of scene,

A        B7               E
Was the most I bargained for;

A           B7             E            C#m
And then I discovered you,  and in your eyes

   G#m    C#m7-5   F#m            B7
I found a love that I couldn't ignore.

E6 - E      
Down, down went the sun; fast, fast beat my heart.

A               Am7                E6 - E          B7     E
I knew when the sun set, from that day we'd never, ever part.
