The Lonely – Christina Perri

Gm           D
2am where do I begin,
D#             A#    D
Crying off my face again.
Gm                  D
The silent sound of loneliness
D#               A#     D
Wants to follow me to bed.
Gm          F           A#          Gm
I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most.
Gm          F           Gm 
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well.
Gm                   D
Dancing slowly in an empty room
D#                       A#        D
Can the lonely take the place of you?
Gm                  D
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
D#                      A#
Let you go and let the lonely in
D
To take my heart again
Gm            D
Too afraid to go inside
D#                        A#        D
For the pain of one more loveless night.
Gm                      D
But the loneliness will stay with me
D#                 A#    D
And hold me til I fall asleep.
Gm          F           A#          Gm
I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most.
Gm           F           Gm 
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well.
Gm                   c
