A G I felt empty and confused C Em I sat there with your clothes near me A G I reached up and grabbed a lamplight C Which fell and broke Chorus 1 Well the what a day (???) A G I stared through empty eyes C Of lavender moon and I Em Far beyond your tears now A G C Still outside in the mist, drenched to the bone alt Em And you sang Chorus 1 Everything’s all right Lick Chorus 2 A G We’d walked through summer fields C alt Em Chorus 1 Live the life of sin (???), cry on hard walls together, we did everything A G Well at night we talked and talked C Em Questioned what the future embraced A G Hugging perfect shapes all day Chorus 1 We’d lie and sleep in Lick Chorus 2 A But now you’ve left and gone G C Em And all I have are memories of you A G They return to me when I’m asleep C When dreams alt Em What I want to say was true (???)
