    you got to walk in that ring all alone.

D                                                    C

    You're not the only one who's made mistakes,

                            Am                                 D

G                                                F                                   G   - F

    but I wouldn't be telling you if I hadn't been there myself.

G                           F                                          G      - F

                   D                                   Em

    when it seemed I did not have a friend,

D                                           C

    cause all I needed was a little faith,

                      Am                                           D

    so I could catch my breath and face the world again.
