Song : E
Intro :
F#maj7 D#m7 A#dim7 D#7
G#m7 G#dim7

F#maj7
In a little while from now
D#m7 A#dim7
If I'm not feeling any less sour
C#m
I promise myself to treat myself
C#m6 D#7
And visit a nearby tower
G#m7
And climbing to the top
Bm6
To throw myself off
F# F#aug
In an effort to make it clear to who-
D#m7 F7
ever what it's like when you're shattered
A#m
Left standing in the lurch
A#mMaj7 D#7
At a church with people saying
G#m7
"My God, that's tough, she stood him up
Bm6
No point in us remaining
F#maj7 D#m7
We may as well go home"
A#dim7 D#7
As I did on my own
G#m7 G#dim7 F#maj7
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful bright and gay
Looking forward - who wouldn't do?
The role I was about to play
And as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Threw me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about God in his mercy
Who if He really does exist
Why did He desert me
In my hour of need
I truly am indeed
G#m7 G#dim7 F#maj7
Alone again, naturally

bridge :
A
It seems to me that there are more hearts
E7
broken in the world
Bm6 G#dim7
Than can be mended
A F#m6
Left unattended
C#maj7
What do we do?
G#m7 G#dim7
What do we do?

guitar solo :

Looking back over the years
And whatever else appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide my tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldn't understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start
With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
When she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Outro :
G#m7 G#dim7 C#7 D#7
Alone again naturally
G#m7 Bm6 C#7 F#
Alone again... naturally
