 C#m                         B                G#m
You're the one who's nearly breaking my heart,

                           C#m          B
Had your chance, you just threw it all away.

 C#m                              B                 G#m
Living in a world that you could never be a part of,

                     G#m       E
And now's a time to walk away.


                         B
[You can't stay, no you can't stay.]

            C#m            A             B                        E
[You're no loser, there's still time to ride that train, and you]

                      B        
[must be on your way tonight.]

           C#m       A                B
[Thinking you right through you're a Man In The Rain.]


 C#m                       B                G#m 
What's the use in hanging round these walls,

                       C#m         B
Lamps are burning but nobody's at home.

           C#m                  B               G#m
There's a new day dawning as a cold rain falls,

                       C#m
And now's the time to walk alone.
