A F#m E7 Bm7-5 E7 How important can it be Fdim Bm7-5 A D9 A That I tasted other lips? A7 D Bm7 E7 That was long before you came to me Bm7-5 Fdim A D9 A With the wonder of your kiss. A F#m E7 Bm7-5 E7 So the story got around Fdim Bm7-5 A D9 A Of an old romance and me A7 D Bm7 E7 But it happened oh so long ago, Bm7-5 Fdim A AM7 A7 A7/6 How important can it be? Bridge: D Cdim A F#7 Mine was a young and a foolish heart D9 E7/6 A AM7 A7 A7/6 Seeking love at ev'ry turn; D Cdim A F#7 But I have grown so much wiser now -- B7 E7 Even foolish hearts can learn. A F#m E7 Bm7-5 E7 Let the past just fade away Fdim Bm7-5 A D9 A Why get lost in yesterday? A7 D Bm7 E7 The important thing is here and now Bm7-5 Fdim A D9 A And our love is here to stay.
