 When the streets are empty late at night
 FA
 Just the silence fills me with delight, s'alright
 BbBbm
 Rain is falling, trees are still
 FDm
My mind is racing but my heart is as well
 AmCF
It's not funny, it's a shame

 FA
 He's the greatest fighter in the world
 FA
 Got into a brawl over some girl, sweet girl
 BbBbm
 He'll get better, the scars will heal
 FDm
His eyes will open but his heart never will
 GmCF
It's not funny, it's a shame

 Dm
 There's a funny side to it all
 Bb
 Seeing someone else take a fall
 Gm
 When it's you it happens to, sending you
 F
 Tumbling, tumbling

(Solo - same chords as verse played over the vocal melody (which is played on guitar))
