Fatal Hesitation

Words & Music by Chris de Burgh

Intro: Dm - Bbmaj7 - Fmaj7 - Bb - Dm - Bbmaj7-   Fmaj7 - Csus - C

            Dm                              Bb              F                                  Bb

The cafes are all deserted, the streets are wet again,

                    Dm                                      Bb                  F                                          Csus C

There's nothing quite like an out of season holiday town in the rain,

                     Bbmaj7                          G7

When the tourists go and the cold winds blow,

                   F          C                Bb          G9

And my girl is on a plane, home...

 

I'm never going to love another, the way that I have loved you,

It's taken me a little time to discover it,

Now I know it's true, but fatal hesitation,

Made me miss the show,

 

      G  Gm7           Fmaj7/A                      Bb - Bb/C

Oh Romeo is standing in the rain,

          F          Gm7                          Fmaj7/A               Bb -  Bb/C

And I know that I have let her____ slip away,

 

Dm         C      Bb     F

Fatal hesitation, ah, fatal hesitation...

I saw you again this morning, walking down the beach,

And though you are a thousand miles away,

You were only just out of reach, but when I got up close,

And I saw her face, I knew it couldn't be so, no, no;

Oh Romeo is standing in the rain,

And I, yes I know, I have let her slip away,

Fatal hesitation, fatal hesitation,

 

Db                                      Eb/Db                                          F/C

I'm going to get on my____ boat and sail away;

Oh Romeo is standing in the rain,

And I, yes I know, I have let her slip away,

Fatal hesitation,

Fatal hesitation,

Fatal hesitation,

Fatal hesitation...

I'm going to read a little Shakespeare,

And get her out of my head,

It doesn't matter any more,

I'm going to miss her just a little bit,

Just a little bit...
