Intro: - GbGb chord Bbm7Bbm7 chord Abm7Abm7 chord GbGb chord -

Verse: 1
 GbGb chord                       
 In a little while from now,
        Bbm7Bbm7 chord                    
 If I'm not feeling any less sour
   DbmDbm chord       
 I promised myself to treat myself
     BbmBbm chord            Eb7Eb7 chord
 And visit a nearby tower,
 
       Abm7Abm7 chord
 And climbing to the top,
      BmBm chord            
 Will throw myself off
       GbGb chord                AbAb chord
 In an effort to make it clear to who
      Gb6Gb6 chord                      F7F7 chord
 Ever what it's like when your shattered
 
      Bbm7Bbm7 chord                        DbmDbm chord
 Left standing in the lurch, at a church
                  Eb7Eb7 chord
 Where people 're saying,
     AbmAbm chord
 "My God that's tough, she stood him up!
    BmBm chord               
 No point in us remaining.
 
    GbGb chord             Gbmaj7Gbmaj7 chord  
 We may as well go home."
    Bbm7Bbm7 chord        Eb7Eb7 chord
 As I did on my own,
   AbmAbm chord        Db7Db7 chord
 Alone again, naturally


Verse: 2
    GbGb chord                      
 To think that only yesterday,
       Bbm7Bbm7 chord                    
 I was cheerful, bright and gay,
         DbmDbm chord       
 Looking forward to, but who wouldn't do,
     BbmBbm chord                 Eb7Eb7 chord
 The role I was about to play
 
        Abm7Abm7 chord
 But as if to knock me down,
    BmBm chord      
 Reality came around
     GbGb chord                   AbAb chord
 And without so much as a mere touch,
     Gb6Gb6 chord            F7F7 chord
 Cut me into little pieces
 
 Bbm7Bbm7 chord
 Leaving me to doubt,
            DbmDbm chord            Eb7Eb7 chord
 Talk about God and His mercy
     AbmAbm chord
 Who if He really does exist
 BmBm chord                
 Why did He desert me
 
 GbGb chord            Gbmaj7Gbmaj7 chord     
 In my hour of need?
   BbmBbm chord      Eb7Eb7 chord
 I truly am indeed,
   AbmAbm chord        Db7Db7 chord
 Alone again, naturally


Bridge:
    AA chord 
 It seems to me that there are more hearts
 EE chord                                 BmBm chord     Db7Db7 chord
 broken in the world that can't be mended
          AA chord
 Left unattended
            Abm7Abm7 chord               Db7Db7 chord
 What do we do? What do we do?

Verse: 3
     GbGb chord                      
 Now looking back over the years,
         Bbm7Bbm7 chord                 
 And whatever else that appears
      DbmDbm chord       
 I remember I cried when my father died
       BbmBbm chord                 Eb7Eb7 chord
 Never wishing to hide the tears

        Abm7Abm7 chord
 And at sixty five years old,
    BmBm chord                    
 My mother, God rest her soul,
          GbGb chord                  AbAb chord
 Couldn't understand, why the only man
     Gb6Gb6 chord                     F7F7 chord
 She had ever loved had been taken
  
 BbmBbm chord                         DbmDbm chord
 Leaving her to start with a heart 
             Eb7Eb7 chord
 So badly broken
    AbmAbm chord
 Despite encouragement from me
    BmBm chord            
 No words were ever spoken
 
     GbGb chord              Gbmaj7Gbmaj7 chord   
 And when she passed away
   BbmBbm chord                 Eb7Eb7 chord
 I cried and cried all day 
   AbmAbm chord                Bbm7Bbm7 chord   Eb7Eb7 chord
 Alone again, naturally
   AbmAbm chord        Db7Db7 chord
 Alone again, naturally
