      Am                                          G

1. You’re the one who’s nearly breaking my heart,

Em                                            Am             G

    had your chance, you just threw it all away,

    Am                                             G

    living in a world that you could never be a part of,

Em                                  Am

    and now’s the time to walk away.

 

C                                        G

    You can’t stay, no, you can’t stay,

                Am                  F               G

you’re no loser, there’s still time to ride that train,

                - C                              G

and you         must be on your way tonight,

            Am              F                       G

think anew right through, you’re a man in the rain.

 

        Am                                  G

2. What’s the use in hanging round these walls,

Em                                   Am               G

    lamps are burning but nobody’s at home,

                    Am                               G

    there’s a new day dawning as a cold rain falls,

Em                               Am

    and now it’s time to walk alone.

     branches bare like the          trees in November.

Am - G - Em                     Am              G

                       Had it all, threw it all away,

Am - G - Em                           Am

                     now’s a time to walk away.
