Moira Kirk It's so perfect and I love it. Especially the verse with Sherlock saying don't be afraid to ask for what you need. Favorite track: John, All I Need is You.

Nikki Kish These four songs range from funny to heartfelt and heartbreaking, but are all beautifully written, wonderful to sing along to, and just really generally brilliant. Amazing music to match an amazing show. Favorite track: I Believe in Sherlock Holmes.

about

This album is all about the BBC show Sherlock. It contains spoilers.

I will upload this album one song at a time (as I write them) and it will be completely free until I run out of free downloads. It's currently set at the name-your-own-price thing so that people who want it for free can still get it for free, but if you want to pay like a dollar or something, a free download is left for someone else. Don't feel obligated to pay at all--don't even feel that little guilt I know I feel when I put in a zero--I just put it there to make more free downloads possible for later.

Enjoy!

Track Name: I Believe in Sherlock Holmes
Verse 1: D A Em G

When Stamford introduced us I was missing the war I was missing combat,
I was alone and lost.
You took me to see Jenni Wilson’s body, and we had dinner on that stakeout,
When I first forgot my cane.

Prechorus 1: Em G D A

In those 18 months you changed my life and my perception,
Of this world I live in now without you.
Baker Street won’t be the same without your goddamn deductions,
Can I ever move on and find someone new…?

Chorus: D A Em G

I believe in Sherlock Holmes (x3)
Just one more miracle please,
I believe in Sherlock Holmes (x3)

Verse 2: D A Em G

I met your brother Mycroft with whom you have grudges and too much history,
But he still worries constantly.
And then Irene Adler the woman who beat you, but
I don’t bring it up ‘cause I know it would make you sad.

Prechorus 2: Em G D A

But when we met Moriarty, I knew something was different:
This guy was out to get you.
I don’t know if you saw it coming but, I didn’t and now I miss you,
And I won’t forget you, Sherlock.

[CHORUS]

Bridge: Bm A

One more thing, just one more miracle for me, oh,
Stop being dead now stop this all.
One more thing just one more miracle for me, oh,
Come back now I need you back where you belong.

[CHORUS]

Em G D A
I can only hope you fooled me, that you’re safe now, that you’re okay,
I can only hope you’re the man I thought I knew.
Track Name: John, All I Need is You
Verse: Am C G D

Sometimes I am a burden on my friends, I know,
And I ask too much of you.
I'm hard enough to be around, when I'm in one of my moods,
But John you have to understand, you know,
There are things I just won't do,
And that's where you come in, that's why I need you.

Chorus: C G Am G C G Am D

John right now all I need is you,
John right now all I need is you,
To pass me my phone.

Verse: Am C G D Am C G D

I need to send a text to that serial killer but, it's not worth, worth my energy,
The number's on the desk right over there, tell me if he says anything,
I know it's not what you expected in a flatmate or expected in a new friend,
These things I need are the price of your new life, can you comprehend?

Chorus: C G Am F C G Am D

John right now all I need is you,
John right now all I need is you,
To send that text.

Bridge: (C Em G D)x2 (Am Em G D)x2

John I know that you must need things from me,
Don't be afraid, no, just ask and you'll see
That I'll be there for you if you ever feel down,
I promise I'll always, always be around.

Verse: Am C G D

So whenever I'm on your nerves, so mad you can't see straight,
Remember, John, it's not my fault: I do it all for the case.
I'm glad that you are my flatmate though, yes I am not ashamed,
To admit that I need you John.

Chorus: C G Am F C G Am F

John right now all I need is you,
John right now all I need is you,
To be my blogger.
Track Name: Exgirlfriends' Lament
Verse: E C#m B A
Hey John it's Sarah, do you remember me?
We went out for awhile and I was kidnapped by the Chinese.
That was our first date, and even thought it was a bit scary,
I wanted to have another.
But you chose Sherlock over me.

Hey it's Jeanette. Do you remember me?
We went out for awhile until that Christmas party.
We were going for dinner, gonna spend some time alone,
But you cancelled at the last minute.
And you chose Sherlock over me.

Chorus: E C#m B A
You were nice, you were charming,
You were handsome and sweet,
But you cared more about, your flatmate than me,
I wish you, the best,
With Sherlock Holmes.

(capo on 2nd)
Verse: E C#m B A
I thought it was all, too good to be true
And I turned out to be right,
Cause when Sherlock walks in the room,
Neither of you, can see anyone else
So I'm saying goodbye, take care of yourself.
Cause you chose Sherlock over me.

CHORUS

Bridge: F#m G#m C#m B
I'm sorry I left you, but I know that we aren't meant to be.
I'm sorry it ended this way but you should know that you are...
Great.

CHORUS
Track Name: On My Own
(If you want the chords they are literally the same four chords the whole song
Am F C G)

You used to lose me with all your intelligent ramblings
But now alone without you i am truly lost
You may have saved my life
But what was the cost (what was the cost)

Sherlock, where are you
When I need you most
Sherlock, I can’t do this on my own

We used to sit in our chairs and talk and laugh about things
But now its just me here missing you
But now that you’re gone
What do I do (I don’t know what to do)

Sherlock, where are you
When I need you most
Sherlock, I can’t do this on my own

They say I’ll move on, they say (they say)
Though it may take a while that
I’ll learn to cope
But each day gets harder and each day i miss you more
And I’ve forgotten how to hope

I tried to run to you
But the world got in my way
I tried to stop you
But you just wouldn’t stay
Sherlock, why’d you have to go away
Sherlock, I can’t do this one more day

Sherlock, where are you
When I need you most
Sherlock, I can’t do this on my own

They say I’ll move on, they say (they say)
Though it may take awhile that
I'll learn to cope
But each day gets harder and each day i miss you more
And I’ve forgotten how to hope
