[E]I woke up in a [D]Soho doorway,
A C G *
A policeman knew my name. He said,
You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away
I staggered back to the underground
And the breeze blew back my hair
[E]I remember throwin' p[D]unches around and
A C G D/F# A **
preachin' from my chair Well,
Who are [E]you [D/E] [A/E] [E] [A/E] [E]
(Who are you, who who, who who),
I really want to know
(Who are you, who who, who who)
Tell me who are you
(Who are you, who who, who who)
'Cause I really wanna know
(Who are you, who who, who who)
I took the tube back out of town,
Back to the rollin' pin
I felt a little like a dying clown
With a streak of rin tin tin
I stretched back and I hiccupped
And looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the tin pan, god,
There's got to be another way.
[repeat cborus]

[repeat over second cborus] 
I know there's a place you walked
Where love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup,
I only feel right on my knees
I spit out like a sewer hole
Yet still receive your kiss.
How can I measure up to anyone now
After such a love as this
[repeat cborus]
