Sung here without a capo. Capo 9 may be helpful... some good old three chords and the truth... and it manages to sound quite melancholy with no minor chords.


G,D,G I feel all alone sometimes sitting at my desk inside this empty house.
G,D I feel all alone sometimes pressed by crowds on every side,
D,G, people who should know each other's names
G,D I feel all alone sometimes at the table with the relatives.
D,G What do I have to give to such conversation
C,G But feeling all alone is not a crime,
(G),D It happens all the time,
(D),G To the best and the brightest,
C,G And when your candle’s flickering,
(G),D Know that there may not be a thing,
(D),G You can do to right it.
C,G,C,G You gotta wait it out, you gotta wait it out

G,D,G I feel all alone sometimes searching for a truth that I can’t seem to find.
G,D I feel all alone sometimes when I hear a baby cry,
D,G Little does she know what she’s getting into.
G,D I feel all alone sometimes looking in the mirror at my empty eyes,
D,G Wishing I could gaze deep into someone else’s life

G,D When you feel all alone sometimes like there’s a flaw in the design,
D,G Do whatever you can to distract yourself,
C,G,D But make sure to take the time to tell the people in your life,
D,G You could use some help,
Cuz CHORUS repeat tag extra
C,G And it’s worth the wait.
