                          (Ainsfield - Denson)


	(drum roll)


	Eb              Ab/Eb
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	(band enters):

Verse 1:

	(electric guitar plays only those chords tagged with *)

	Ebsus4*     Eb    Ebsus4*       Eb
	A thousand hands    applaud tonight
	Fsus4*     Fm    Fsus4*             Fm
	I sing my songs    my star shines bright
	Gsus4*      Gm     Ab*
	I stop and smile   I take my bow
	I leave the stage and then somehow

Chorus 1:

	     Eb                Cm
	Backstage I'm lonely, backstage I cry
	Ab                         Bb [N.C.]
	You've gone away and each night I seem to die a little

Verse 2:

	Out on that stage    I play the star
	I'm famous now   I've come so far
	A famous fool   I let love go
	I didn't know I'd miss you so

Chorus 2:

	     Eb                Cm
	Backstage I'm lonely, backstage I cry
	Ab                     Bb            (Eb)
	Hating myself since I let you say goodbye

	Eb       Cm       Ab       Bb
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /


	C# [N.C.]
	Every night a different room
	Bb [N.C.]
	Every night a different club
	Eb                          Cm
	And yet I'm lonely all the time
	Ab [N.C.]
	When I sign my autograph
	F# [N.C.]
	When I hold an interview
	Ab                       Bb
	Can't get you out of my mind

Verse 3:

	Come back my love   come back to me
	I need you now   so desperately
	What good is fame   it's just a game
	I'd give it all to be the same

Chorus 3/Coda:

	     Eb                Cm
	Backstage I wait now, hoping I'll see
	Ab                         Bb                 Cm
	Your smiling face waiting there backstage for me
	      Ab                                Bb
	Your smiling face waiting backstage for me
	     Eb   Eb7/C#  Ab/C  Bb
	     Eb   Eb7/C#  Ab/C  Bb   Ebsus4  Eb
