Capo first fret

.                                         Am
Not a sound from the pavement
.                                             F
Has the moon lost her memory?
.                          Em
She is smiling alone
.             Dm                                                                Am
In the lamplight, the withered leaves collect at my feet
.               G                          C
And the wind begins to moan


.                                  Am
All alone in the moonlight
.                                   F
I can smile at the old days
.                          Em
I was beautiful then
.      Dm                                                         Am
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
.           G                    C
Let the memory live again


Em        F               Em            F
Every streetlamp seems to beat
Em       C       G
a fatalistic warning
.                  Em                                        D
Someone mutters, and a streetlamp gutters,
.        Em                            D
And soon it will be morning.


.                               Am
I must wait for the sunrise
.                                F
must think of a new life
.                          Em
And I mustn’t give in.
.             Dm                                                         Am
When the dawn comes, tonight will be a memory too
.          G                     C
And a new day will begin

Em        F               Em            F
Burnt out ends of smokey days
Em       C       G
The stale cold smell of morning
.                  Em                                        D
he streetlamp dies, another night is over
.        Em                            D
Another day is dawning…

Touch me!
.                                Am
It’s so easy to leave me
.                                    F
All alone with the memory
.                          Em
Of my days in the sun…
.             Dm                                                          Am
If you touch me, you’ll understand what happiness is
.               G                        C
Look, a new day has begun
