D                  A

Sometimes I feel

          Bm              F#m  G
Like I don't have a partner

D                   A
Sometimes I feel

       Bm         G
Like my only friend

          D      A
Is the city I live in

       Bm     F#m  G
The city of angels

D            A
Lonely as I am

     Bm         G    Dmaj7 (x2 measures)
Together we cry

    D                  A
I drive on her streets

           Bm              F#m  G
'Cause she's my companion

    D                       A
I walk through her hills

                  Bm              G
'Cause she knows who I am

       D                     A
She sees my good deeds

           Bm              F#m  G
And she kisses me windy

D            A
I never worry

          Bm     G    Dmaj7 (x2 measures)
Now that is a lie

Chorus
   Em                  D

I don't ever want to feel

A        Em
Like I did that day

Take me to the place I love

A           Em
Take me all the way
   Em                  D

I don't ever want to feel

A        Em
Like I did that day

Take me to the place I love

A           Em
Take me all the way

That I'm all alone

At least I have her love

The city she loves me

Together we cry
