Waking Up Alone  Paul Williams

WAKING UP ALONE (Paul Williams)
[D]I took my chances on a [F#m]one way ticket home
[Em]Growing tired of strangers and the k[Gm]ind of life I'd known
Thought the t[D]ime for settling [F#m]down had come at l[A]ast
Guess I ho[D]ped to find my f[F#m]uture in the p[A]ast
[D]Walk me with me darling where the w[F#m]heat fields used to be
[Em]I will tell you stories of my t[Gm]imes across the sea
You're the lege[D]nday [F#m]girl I left beh[A]ind
Can't be[D]gin to count the t[F#m]imes you crossed my m[A]ind
And [B]oh your [Ebm]children well the you[G#]ngest looks just like you
[Em]She's a picture of her mother
And there'll n[Gm]ever be another
Quite like y[D]ou[F#m]
You're an an[G]gel and a t[A]ime that I don't k[D]now any [F#m]more[Em]
So good ni[A]ght I'll take my me[D]mories to [F#m]bed
You k[Em]now that be wa[A]king up al[D]one[F#m] [D]
I should have noticed that the years were slipping by
Still you're just as lovely as the day we said goodbye
Like an old familiar poem that just won't rhymn
I could get back to ther place but not the time
and oh your children well the youngest looks just like you
She's the picture of her mother
and there'll never be another quite like you
You're an angel and a time that I don't know anymore
And so goodnight
I'll take my memories to bed
And know that I'll be waking up alone
Posting the best in Power Pop!
