Verse: 1
 Gb                       
 In a little while from now,
        Bbm7                    
 If I'm not feeling any less sour
   Dbm       
 I promised myself to treat myself
     Bbm            Eb7
 And visit a nearby tower,
 
       Abm7
 And climbing to the top,
      Bm            
 Will throw myself off
       Gb                Ab
 In an effort to make it clear to who
      Gb6                      F7
 Ever what it's like when your shattered
 
      Bbm7                        Dbm
 Left standing in the lurch, at a church
                  Eb7
 Where people 're saying,
     Abm
 "My God that's tough, she stood him up!
    Bm               
 No point in us remaining.
 
    Gb             Gbmaj7  
 We may as well go home."
    Bbm7        Eb7
 As I did on my own,
   Abm        Db7
 Alone again, naturally


Verse: 2
    Gb                      
 To think that only yesterday,
       Bbm7                    
 I was cheerful, bright and gay,
         Dbm       
 Looking forward to, but who wouldn't do,
     Bbm                 Eb7
 The role I was about to play
 
        Abm7
 But as if to knock me down,
    Bm      
 Reality came around
     Gb                   Ab
 And without so much as a mere touch,
     Gb6            F7
 Cut me into little pieces
 
 Bbm7
 Leaving me to doubt,
            Dbm            Eb7
 Talk about God and His mercy
     Abm
 Who if He really does exist
 Bm                
 Why did He desert me
 
 Gb            Gbmaj7     
 In my hour of need?
   Bbm      Eb7
 I truly am indeed,
   Abm        Db7
 Alone again, naturally


Bridge:
    A 
 It seems to me that there are more hearts
 E                                 Bm     Db7
 broken in the world that can't be mended
          A
 Left unattended
            Abm7               Db7
 What do we do? What do we do?

Verse: 3
     Gb                      
 Now looking back over the years,
         Bbm7                 
 And whatever else that appears
      Dbm       
 I remember I cried when my father died
       Bbm                 Eb7
 Never wishing to hide the tears

        Abm7
 And at sixty five years old,
    Bm                    
 My mother, God rest her soul,
          Gb                  Ab
 Couldn't understand, why the only man
     Gb6                     F7
 She had ever loved had been taken
  
 Bbm                         Dbm
 Leaving her to start with a heart 
             Eb7
 So badly broken
    Abm
 Despite encouragement from me
    Bm            
 No words were ever spoken
 
     Gb              Gbmaj7   
 And when she passed away
   Bbm                 Eb7
 I cried and cried all day 
   Abm                Bbm7   Eb7
 Alone again, naturally
   Abm        Db7
 Alone again, naturally
