Oper-[A]ator please connect me - [D]with Nineteen-Eighty Two
I [E]need to make apolo-[E7]gies for [D]what I didn't [A]do [E]
I [A]sure do need to tell her that I [D]thought the whole thing [Bm]through
And [E]now it's clear that she is what - I should have held on-[A]to.
They say [E]hindsight's 20-20 but I'm [A]nearly [D]goin' [A]blind
>From [B7]starin' at her photograph and [E]wishing she was mine
It's that [A]same old lost love story - it's [D]sad but it's [Bm]true
There [E]was a time when she was mine in Nineteen-Eighty-[A]Two.
CHANGE TO: B
Postman can you sell me - a special kind of stamp
One to send a letter from this crazy lonely man
Back into the wasted years of my living past
I need to tell her, now I know - how long my love will last.
TAG: Losing my mind, going back in time - to Nineteen-Eighty Two.
