remember keys
Gm           D
2am where do I begin,
Eb             Bb    D
Crying off my face again.
Gm                  D
The silent sound of loneliness
Eb               Bb     D
Wants to follow me to bed.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

D7 works better instead of Gm for “I used to know well”

Im not sure the Gm in the pre chorus is right. Shouldn’t it be Eb. This is very awsome though. Thank you.

This helped me soooo much! Thank you to the power of infinity!

But I also think there should be an audio of this on here. Like a play-along, maybe?
