Gm Gm           D D
Two AM AM where do I begin
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
Crying off my face again
Gm Gm D D
The silent sound of loneliness
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
Wants to follow me to bed

Gm Gm F F Bb Bb Gm Gm
I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most
Gm Gm F F Gm Gm D D
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well

Gm Gm D D
Dancing slowly in an empty room
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
Can the lonely take the place of you
Gm Gm D D
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Let you go and let the lonely in
D D
To take my heart again

Gm Gm D D
Too afraid to go inside
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
For the pain of one more loveless night
Gm Gm D D
But the loneliness will stay with me
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
And hold me til I fall asleep

Gm Gm F F Bb Bb Gm Gm
I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most
Gm Gm F F Gm Gm D D
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well

Gm Gm D D
Dancing slowly in an empty room
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
Can the lonely take the place of you
Gm Gm D D
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Let you go and let the lonely in
D D
To take my heart again

Gm Gm F F Bb Bb F F Gm Gm
Broken pieces of
Gm Gm F F Bb Bb F F Cm Cm Bb Bb
a barely breathing story
Gm Gm F F Bb Bb F F Eb Eb
Where there once was love
Gm Gm F F Bb Bb F F Cm Cm D D D7 D7
Now there's only me and the lonely

Gm Gm D D
Dancing slowly in an empty room
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
Can the lonely take the place of you
Gm Gm D D
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Let you go and let the lonely in
D D
To take my heart again
