Their side of the story...


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.


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...
