            F#m7   F#m7sus   F#m7
            Em7   A7b9   D

_____Verse: 1

 Dmaj7                   D6
 In a little while from now,
        F#m7                 F#m7sus
 If I'm not feeling any less sour
 I promised myself to treat myself
     F#m7b5         B7
 And visit a nearby tower,
 And climbing to the top,
        Em7b5         Gm6
 Will throw myself off
       D                 Daug
 In an effort to make it clear to who
      D6                       C#7
 Ever what it's like when your shattered
      F#m                           Am
 Left standing in the lurch, at a church
                  B7b9  B7
 Where people 're say___ing,
 "My God that's tough, she stood him up!
     Em7b5           Gm6 
 No point in us remaining.
    Dmaj7           D6
 We may as well go home."
     F#m  F#m7  B7
 As I did on my own,
   Em       Bbm 5     D
 Alone again, naturally

_____Verse: 2

     Dmaj7                  D6
 To think that only yesterday,
       F#m7                 F#m7sus
 I was cheerful, bright and gay,
 Looking forward to, but who wouldn't do,
      F#m7b5               B7
 The role I was about to play
 But as if to knock me down,
    Em7b5  Gm6     Em7b5
 Rea__lity came around
       D                  Daug
 And without so much as a mere touch,
        D6          C#7
 Cut me into little pieces
 Leaving me to doubt,
           Am           B7b9  B7
 Talk about God and His mer___cy
 Who if He really does exist
 Em7b5             Gm6
 Why did He desert me
 Dmaj7          D6
 In my hour of need?
     F#m  F#m7  B7
 I truly am in__deed,
   Em       Bbm 5     D
 Alone again, naturally


 It seems to me that 
 There are more hearts
 C7              C7/Bb
 broken in the world 
 that can't be mended
Bbm 5      F
 Left unattended
Bm7b5        Amaj7             A9/E   A7
 What do we do?____What do we do?

   Em       Bbm 5     D
 Alone again, naturally

_____Verse: 3

     Dmaj7                  D6
 Now looking back over the years,
         F#m7              F#m7sus
 And whatever else that appears
 I remember I cried when my father died
       F#m7b5               B7
 Never wishing to hide the tears
 And at sixty five years old,
 My mother, God rest her soul,
           D                  Daug
 Couldn't understand, why the only man
         D6                  C#7
 She had ever loved had been taken 
 F#m                          Am
 Leaving her to start with a heart 
          B7b9  B7
 So badly bro___ken
 Despite encouragement from me
      Em7b5         Gm6
 No words were ever spoken
     Dmaj7             D6
 And when she passed away
     F#m       F#m7    B7
 I cried and cried all day 
   Em       Bbm 5     D/F#   F#m7   B7
 Alone again, naturally
   Em       Bbm 5  A7      D
 Alone again,______naturally
