Affair On 8th Avenue

(Em7)  (Am7)  (Em)

The perfume that she (D) wore was from (Am) some little (Bm) store
(Cmaj7) On the down side of (D) town
But (Em) it lingered (D) on long (Am) after she'd (Bm) gone
(Cmaj7) I remember it (D) well
And our (G) fingers en(D)twined like (C) ribbons of (D) light
And we (G) came through a (Em) doorway some(Am)where in the (F) night (D)

Her long flowing hair came softly undone
And it lay all around
And she brushed it down as I stood by her side
In the warmth of her love
And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin
And we played a game only she could win
And she told me a riddle I'll never forget
Then left with the answer I've never found yet

How long, said she, can a moment like this
Belong to someone
What's wrong, what is right, when to live or to die
We must almost be born
So if you should ask me what secrets I hide
I'm only your lover, don't make me decide

The perfume that she wore was from some little store
On the down side of town
But it lingered on long after she'd gone
I remember it well
And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin
And we played a game only she could win
And our fingers entwined like ribbons of light
And we came through a doorway somewhere in the night
