#1.(Capo 3rd fret for orig.) INTRO: C F C
A thousand hands applaud tonight,
I sing my songs my star shines bright.
Em                F
I stop and smile, I take my bow,
G                     G7
I leave the stage and then, somehow..
    C                     Am
Backstage I'm lonely, backstage I cry.
F                         G
You've gone away and each night, I seem to die a little.. 

Out on that stage I play the star.
I'm famous now, I've come so far.
Em             F 
A famous fool, I let love go.
G                  G7 
I didn't know, I'd miss you so.

    C                     Am
Backstage I'm lonely, backstage I cry.
F                      G               C   Am F G
Hating myself, since I let you say goodbye..

Every night a different room,
Every night a different club.
C                          Am 
And yet I'm lonely all the time.
When I sign my autograph,
When I hold an interview,
F                       G 
Can't get you out of my mind.

Come back my love, come back to me.
I need you now, so desperately.
Em                 F
What good is fame? It's just a game,
G                   G7 
I'd give it all, to be the same.

    C                 Am
Backstage I wait now, hoping I'll see..
F                         G                     Am 
Your smiling face waiting there, backstage, for me.
     Dm           F                       G  G7
Your smiling face waiting, backstage, for me.
    C       F   G     C  F G C

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
