ALONE

    D     Gmaj9    D


             D
    I was a midnight rider on a cloud of smoke,

       D
    I could make a woman hang on every single stroke,

      Gmaj7
    I was an iron man,


    I had a master plan,

          D             
    but I   was alone.


    

             D
    I could hear you breathing with a sigh of the wind,

         D
    I remember how your body started trembling.

        Gmaj7
    Oh, what a night it's been


    and for the state I'm in

        D             
    I'm  still alone.


    

                Bm7                        Em7
    And all the wonders made for the Earth,

                       A             Bm
    and all the hearts    in all cre a tion,

  G            D                  
    somehow I always end up alone,

                         
    always end up alone.


    

              D
    So I play,

              Bm7
    I'll wait

                   Em7
    'cause you know   that love takes time.

            D       Bm7
    We came  so far,

                 Em7
    just the beat  of a lonely heart.

                  F#m7    Gmaj9
    And it's mine,

                         D
    I don't want to be alone.


    

           D
    Well, since I got no message on the answer phone,

         D
    and since you're busy every minute, I just stay at home,

              Gmaj7
    I make believe you care,


    I feel you everywhere,

            D           
    but I'm still alone.


    

       D
    I'm on a wheel of fortune with a twist of fate

           D
    'cause I know it isn't heaven, is it love or hate.

        Gmaj7
    Am I the subject of the pain.


    Am I the stranger in the rain.

    D           
    I am alone.


    

                  Bm7                 Em7
    And is there glory there to behold,

               A       Bm
    maybe it's my imagination.

            Em7                    A
    Another story there to be told.


    

              D          Bm7
    So I play, I'll wait,

              Em7
    and I pray   it's not too late.

                    D       Bm7
    You know we came so far,

                 Em7
    just the beat   of a lonely heart,

                  F#m7   Gmaj9
    and it's mine,

                            D
    and I don't want to be alone.


    

                Bm7                        Em7
    And all the wonders made for the Earth,

                       A             Bm
    and all the hearts    in all cre a tion,

             Em7                   A
    another story there to be told.


    

              D          Bm7
    So I play, I'll wait,

              Em7
    and I pray  it's not too late.

           D       Bm7
    We came so far,

                 Em7
    just the beat   of a lonely heart,

                   F#m7  Gmaj9
    and it's mine,

                             D
    and I don't want to be alone.


    


    Gone, but not out of sight.

               Dmaj7                     D
    I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home.


    Face the heat of the night,

               Dmaj7                 D
    the one that you love's got a heart that's made of stone.


    


    Shine and search for the light

              Dmaj7                D
    and sooner or later you'll be cruising on your ocean


    (and I don't want to be alone).


    Shine and clean out of sight

            Dmaj7                        D
    I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home


    (and I don't want to be alone).


    Face the heat of the night,

                Dmaj7               D
    the one that you love's got a heart that's made of stone


    (and I don't want to be alone)...
