 A                    D

Lately, I don’t think you of you at all

A                                                D
  Or wonder what you’re up to or how you’re getting on

A                                              D
   I never think of calling you or how things could have been

A                                                            D
  Or wonder where you sleep at night or whose arms you wake in

Chorus:

      E                                             D
I’m living alone living alone I don’t need you anymore

 E                                             D
Living alone living alone I don’t need you anymore

Lately

A                             D

   I don’t get lost in daydreams
A                                        D

I never lay awake at night staring in my bed
A                                                      D

  And I don’t think about your face or anything you’ve said
A                                            D

  And I don’t think twice when someone says your name
A                                                            D
  Or twist my mind in circles wondering which of us to blame


Chorus

 

A                                                D
   I never walk alone and think of all the empty words
A                                                             D
   Or wonder when the day will break or when the tides will turn

A                                               D
   And I don’t break down when someone says your name

A                                                             D
   Or twist my mind in circles wondering which of us to blame

Chorus

 

  A                    D
Lately, I don’t think you of you at all.

A         D
