[Chorus]
           G                Em9         Cadd9     D
Just that  ...sweet little mystery that breaks my heart,
           G                Em9              D
Just that   ...sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           G                Em9            Cadd9   D
Oy, that    ...sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
           G                Em9              D
Just that   ...sweet little mystery makes me try

[Verse 1]
G                              Em9
    Friends all tell me that I look so sad,
Cadd9                                D
       And they don't need to ask me why,
G                               Em9
    They know the reason that I feel so bad,
Cadd9                            D
       Since the night you said  ...good - bye!

[Pre-Chorus]
Am9
     It's not the letters that you just don't write,
Em9
     It's not the arms of some new friend,
Am9
     It's not the crying in the dead of the night,
     Em9                  D
That keeps me hanging on, waiting for the end

[Chorus]
           G               Em9            Cadd9   D
Just that  ...sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
           G               Em9              D
Just that  ...sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           G               Em9            Cadd9   D
Oo, that   ...sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
                G              Em9              D
It's just that ...sweet little mystery makes me try

[Verse 2]
G                                   Em9
    I watch the street, I watch the radio,
Cadd9                        D
       I don't need to turn  ...it on,
G                                Em9
    Another friend comes by, and tries to say hello,
Cadd9                        D
        Another weekend's al----most gone

[Pre-Chorus]
Am9
     It's not the letters that you just don't write,
Em9
     It's not the arms of some new friend,
Am9
     It's not the crying in the depth of the night,
     Em9                       D
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end

[Chorus]
           G               Em9            Cadd9   D
It's that  ...sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
           G               Em9              D
Just that  ...sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           G               Em9            Cadd9   D
Oo, that  ... sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
                G               Em9              D
It's just that  ...sweet little mystery makes me try

[Verse 3]
G
    The time is flying fast,
    Em9           Cadd9                         D
And I don't care     ...to spend another night ...alone,
G                            Em9
    I want to see you, but I don't know where,
Cadd9                          D
      'Til then I'm walking on---  my own

[Pre-Chorus]
Am9
     It's not the letters that you just don't write,
Em9
     It's not the arms of some new friend,
Am9
     It's not the crying in the depth of the night,

That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end

It's just that  ...sweet little mystery makes me cry,
           G              Em9            Cadd9   D
Oh, that  ...sweet little mystery that's in your heart,
