Heartbreak in Silhouette

Song Author Peggy Ann Manson , Allen McCoy og Carey Fraley Performer: Jim Reeves Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I listened to an old [G7]friend de[F]scribe the girl he'd[C] met
In memory[G7] I could see [C]her hea[F]rtbreak in sil[C]houette
He said her hair was [G7]golden her [F]eyes were vio[C]let  
It surely [G7]had to be [C]her hea[F]rtbreak in sil[C]houette

He [F]said that when he [G7]kissed her [F]her kisses were like [C]wine
And [G7]suddenly I [C]wondered if [D7]she'd break his heart like [G7]mine   
[C]But I sat there in [G7]silence and [F]smoked my ciga[C]rette
His heart [G7]would soon [C]discover hea[F]rtbreak in sil[C]houette

With shining eyes he [G7]told me [F]about the night they'd [C]met  
My own heart [G7]kept remem[C]bering he[F]artbreak in si[C]lhouette
Outside the rain kept [G7]falling re[F]calling old re[C]grets
Then she [G7]stood in the [C]doorway hea[F]rtbreak in si[C]lhouette

At [F]first she didn't [G7]see us b[F]ecause the lights were [C]dim  
As [G7]she chatted with her new [C]love [D7]she had eyes for only [G7]him   
My [C]friend sat that there in [G7]silence and [F]not one word was [C]said
Two broken [G7]hearts were [C]sharing hear[F]tbreak in Sil[C]houette
Heart[F]break in sil[C]houette

I listened to an old friend describe the girl he'd met
In memory I could see her heartbreak in silhouette
He said her hair was golden her eyes were violet
It surely had to be her heartbreak in silhouette

He said that when he kissed her her kisses were like wine
And suddenly I wondered if she'd break his heart like mine
But I sat there in silence and smoked my cigarette
His heart would soon discover heartbreak in silhouette

With shining eyes he told me about the night they'd met
My own heart kept remembering heartbreak in silhouette
Outside the rain kept falling recalling old regrets
Then she stood in the doorway heartbreak in silhouette

At first she didn't see us because the lights were dim
As she chatted with her new love she had eyes for only him
My friend sat that there in silence and not one word was said
Two broken hearts were sharing heartbreak in Silhouette
Heartbreak in silhouette
