    C                                      B 
All the cities in the world and so very little time, and 
   C                                           B 
So many different girls, all you have to do is find them 
          C                          Em 
There's a wealth of opportunity, you make your plans accordingly 
A pity that the pretty ones are usually more touristy 
     C                                     B 
Say, how'd you like to run away from these machines? 
C                                         B 
Everywhere the spies are printing out our dreams 
      C                                   Em 
Seven stops in seven different countries, seven page itineraries 
Memories thick as bloody marys, Jesus Joseph bloody hell 
      G                 C 
Right now we're here in Boston 
   G                  C 
In love with downtown crossing 
    G                               C 
New York will still be there in the morning 
     Em      D      C 
Come back to bed my darling 
      C                                      B 
I had Julian and Steve, you had Juliette and Janet 
              C                                               B 
You wear your terror on your sleeve for all the men I haven't met... yet 
      C                         Em 
I had Oliver in Potstam you had Elanor in Amsterdam 
We're keeping score so carefully we've lost the state we're in completely 
Honestly your foot is out the door and I've got scores of offers 
    B                                               C 
Elsewhere and keep both feet planted firmly in the air 
    C                        Em 
And tomorrow you can totally erase me from your mind 
No really, everything is fine 
              G                 C 
Because right now we're here in Boston 
   G                   C 
In my apartment in the south end 
   G                   C 
Forget your friends in London 
     Em      D      C 
Come back to bed my darling 
Em              D            C 
You can put the details in a letter 
    Em     D              C 
The more embarrassing the better 
      Em           D          C 
Right now I can be happy if I choose to 
  Em               D              C 
I know that in the morning I will lose you 
C                                       B 
And maybe you'll be mad, and maybe I'll be gray 
Before we really understand or maybe it won't matter anyway 
We'll find out that your mom was right and you'll admit you're really gay 
    C                             B 
And maybe we'll wake up in a city far away 
Or maybe we'll make up, and buy a house 
And have a dozen kids who'll run away it doesn't matter anyway 
      G                 C 
Right now we're here in Boston 
   G                              C 
In Eden where you almost let your pants down 
      G                                 C 
Don't worry who these jokes will all be lost on 
     Em      D      C 
Come back to bed my darling 
         Em             D                 C 
There is nothing in the world that we can count on 
     Em                D        C 
Even that we will wake up is an assumption 
      Em         D                 C 
But I know for a fact that I loved someone 
    Em          D                C 
And for about a year he lived in Boston 
   Em      D    C 
In Boston
