[C] Well, baby, there you [Fm6] stand
[C/G] with your little head down in your [F]hand. [G7]
[F]Oh my God, you [Am7] canít believe its [Dm] happening again. [Am7]
Your [F]baby's gone and you're [Am7] all alone and it [Dm] looks like the [F]end. [G7]
[C] And you're back out on the [Fm6] street
[C/G] and you're tryin' to [F]remember. [G7]
[F] How do you start it over? [Am7] You [Dm] don't know if you can. [Am7]
You [F] don't care much for a [Am7] stranger's touch but you [Dm] can't hold your [G7] man.
[Am] You never thought you'd [E/G#] be alone
[G]this far downs the [D/F#] line
and [F] I know what's been on your [Em] mind,
you're a[Dm]fraid it's all been [F]was[G7]ted [C]time.
[Bm7] The autumn [E7]leaves have got you [Am]thinking
[Bm7] about the [E7]first time that you [Am]fell.
[Bm7] You didn't [E7]love the bo[Am]y too much[C/G], no no,
you just[F] lov[C/G]ed the boy [Fm6]too well_[F]___ [G]er-[G7]well
[C] So you live from day to [Fm6] day
[C/G] and you dream about [F] tomorrow, [G7] oh.
[F] And the hours go by like [Am7] minutes and the [Dm] shadows come to stay. [Am7]
So ya [F] take a little [Am7] something to [Dm] make them go [G7] away.
[Am] And I could have done so [E/G#] many things, baby,
[G] if I could only stop my [D/F#] mind
and from [Dm] worryin' bout this [G7] wasted [C] time.
[Ab]Ooh, another love has come and [C]gone.
[Ab]Ooh, and the years keep rushing [C]on.
I[F]remember what you told me[Am7]before you[Dm]went out on your own[Am7]
sometimes to [F] keep it together[Am7]we got to [Dm]leave it alone. [G7]
So [Am] you can get on with [E/G#] your search, baby,
[G] and I can get on with [D/F#] mine.
And [F] maybe someday we will [Em] find
that it [Dm]wasn't really [F]was[G7]ted [C]time.
Well baby, there you stand
With your little head, down in your hand
Oh, my God, you can't believe
It√¶Ň†¬Į happening again
your baby's gone, and you're all alone
and it looks like the end.
And you're back out on the street.
And you're tryin' to remember.
How will you start it over?
You don't know if you can.
You don't care much for a stranger's touch,
but you can't hold your man.
You never thought you'd be alone
this far down the line
And I know what's been on your mind
You're afraid it's all been wasted time
The autumn leaves have got you thinking
about the first time that you fell
You didn't love the boy too much, no, no
you just loved the boy too well, farewell
So you live from day to day, and you dream
about tomorrow, oh.
And the hours go by like minutes
and the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something
to make them go away
And I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind from wonderin' what
I left behind and from worrying 'bout this wasted time
Ooh, another love has come and gone
Ooh, and the years keep rushing on
I remember what you told me
before you went out on your own:
"Sometimes to keep it together,
you got to leave it alone."
So you can get on with your search, baby,
and I can get on with mine
And maybe someday we will find,
that it wasn't really wasted time
Oh hoo, ooh, ohh,
