        There's s[G]omething special 'bout[Fsus2] six o'clock
        In the mo[G]rning when it's still too [Fsus2]early to knock

        And the d[E]usky light shines [Am/E]down on the block
        And refl[E7]ects up and down on the [Am/E]hands of the clock
Fsus2 (as above, 4X; alarm clock enters 3rd time)
Six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 1:

        [G]A few hours [G#dim]ago she was standing h[Am]ere
        Just watching the s[C]tars in our eyes and the li[D]ghts as the tights
             disapp[G]eared
        And I could f[Em]eel I could say what I w[E]ant
        That I could n[Am]udge her and call her my [A]  confidante
        But n[G]ow I'm all al[D]one with just my sh[C]adow in fr[G]ont
Fsus2/G (2 bars)
At six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 2:

I went home and found that time to sleep was rare
Just watching my eyelids, knowing my brain bids the night not
to care
I got up and got scufflin' around
But somehow it just wasn't the same happy town
And the bells didn't ring with the same happy sound
At six o'clock, six o'clock

Bridge:

        [F/G]   If I go back where we p[G]arted
        [F/G]   Could I ever feel l[G]ike that again
        [F/G]   Guess I'll just have to wait 'til tom[G]orrow
        [D]  But what can I [Dsus4] do 'til then

Verse 3:

Guess I'll go back home and just wait until dawn
Yes, I had to learn going back where we were wouldn't help at all
And I wish my head had been working right
We'd have gone for coffee and talked all night
And now I'm back alone, bein' twisted up tight
Six o'clock, six o'clock

Coda:

        N[G]ow I'm back a[D]lone[C]    [G]
        Yes, n[G]ow I'm back al[D]one [C]    [G]
        I'm b[G]ack alone [D]    [C]    [G]

G D C G (repeat to fade)
