Song Author Hugh Laurie Lyrics by: Hugh Laurie Performer: Hugh Laurie Submitted by: saevar
[C]    [F]    [E]    
[F]All my l[G]ife has been a m[C]ystery
Y[F]ou and I w[G]ere never ever mea[C]nt to be
T[F]hat's why I c[G]all my love for you a my[C]stery

[C]    [F]    [E]    
[Am]Different country
Y[F]ou and I have always l[G]ived in a different cou[C]ntry
A[F]nd I know that airline ticket[G]s don't grow on a[C] tree
S[F]o what kept us ap[G]art is plain for me to[C] see
T[F]hat much at least is not really a my[C]stery

[C]    [F]    [E]    
[F]I live in a [G]houseboat on an es[C]tuary
W[F]hich is handy for my wo[G]rk with the Port[C] Authority
[F]But I know you would have[G] found it insa[C]nitary
[C]Insanita[Am]ry… I[C]nsanita[Am]ry…   

[C]    [F]    [E]    
[Am]Hate me
[F]I'd be foolish to i[G]gnore the poss[C]ibility
T[F]hat if we'd ever actually m[G]et, you might have hat[C]ed me
[F]Still, thats not the only pr[G]oblem that I ca[C]n see

[C]    [F]    [E]    
[Am]Dead since 1993
[F]You've been dead[G] now . . . wait a minute, let me [C]see  
[F]Fourteen years come [G]next Janu[C]ary  
[F]As a human b[G]eing you are hist[C]ory  

[F]So why do why I still lo[G]ng for you?
W[C]hy is my love so str[Am]ong for you?
[F]Why did I write this son[G]g for you?

Well, I guess it's just a mystery
[C]Mystery [Am]    

[C]    [Am]    [C]    [Am]    

All my life has been a mystery
You and I were never ever meant to be
That's why I call my love for you a mystery

Different country
You and I have always lived in a different country
And I know that airline tickets don't grow on a tree
So what kept us apart is plain for me to see
That much at least is not really a mystery

I live in a houseboat on an estuary
Which is handy for my work with the Port Authority
But I know you would have found it insanitary
Insanitary… Insanitary…

Hate me
I'd be foolish to ignore the possibility
That if we'd ever actually met, you might have hated me
Still, thats not the only problem that I can see

Dead since 1993
You've been dead now . . . wait a minute, let me see
Fourteen years come next January
As a human being you are history

So why do why I still long for you?
Why is my love so strong for you?
Why did I write this song for you?

Well, I guess it's just a mystery
