When He Sees Me

	  		
Ab 
I stick with real things 
Usually facts and figures 
When information's in its place 
                        Gm 
I minimize the guessing game 
Guess what? 
                      F# 
I don't like guessing games 
Or when I feel things 
Before I know the feelings 
How am I supposed to operate 
                             Fm 
If I'm just tossed around by fate? 
Like on an unexpected date? 
                       Ebm 
The stranger who might talk too fast 
          Ab 
Or ask me questions about myself 
               Db 
Before I've decided that 
              F# 
He can ask me questions about myself 
         Ebm 
He might sit too close 
            Ab 
Or call the waiter by his first name 
       Db 
Or eat Oreos 
            F# 
But eat the cookie before the cream? 
         Ebm 
But what scares me the most 
     F 
what scares me the most 

           Bb 
Is what if when he sees me, what if he doesn't like it? 
                                          Eb 
What if he runs the other way and I can't hide from it? 
What happens then? 
   Bb 
If when he knows me, he's only disappointed? 
                                           Eb 
What if I give myself away, to only get it given back? 
I couldn't live with that 

    F                        Gm 
So, I'm just fine, inside my shell-shaped mind 
     F     Eb             Dm Cm 
This way I get the best view 
    Ebm                Ab 
So, when he sees me, I want him to 


I'm not defensive 
I'm simply being cautious 
I can't risk reckless dating 
Due to my miscalculating 
Gm                               F# 
While a certain suitor stands in line 
I've seen in movies 
Most made for television 
You cannot be too careful 
                               Fm 
When it comes to sharing your life 
I could end up a miserable wife 

            Ebm                    Ab 
He could be criminal, some sort of psychopath 
who escaped from an institution, 
                     Db 
somewhere where they don't have girls 
              F# 
He could have masterminded some way to find me 
            Ebm 
He could be colorblind 
      Ab 
How untrustworthy is that 
            Db 
He could be less than kind 
        F#                                Ebm 
Or even worse he could be very nice, have lovely eyes 
    F#/C#               B 
And make me laugh, come out of hiding 
          F7 
What do I do with that? 
Oh, God 

Bb 
What if when he sees me 
I like him and he knows it? 
What if he opens up a door 
            Eb 
And I can't close it? 
What happens then? 
   Bb 
If when he holds me 
My heart is set in motion 
I'm not prepared for that 
                       Eb 
I'm scared of breaking open 
But still I can't help from hoping 
   Gm9             Eb 
To find someone to talk to 
    F               Cm 
Who likes the way I am 
            Eb 
Someone who when he sees me 
         Bb 
Wants to again
