    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

                Em              D
    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

                Em              D
    Take me to the place I love

    A           Em
    Take me all the way

    It's hard to believe

    That there's nobody out there

           D             A
    It's hard to believe

             Bm      G
    That I'm all alone

           D             A
    At least I have her love

            Bm      F#m  G
    The city she loves me
