Verse 1:

	Can't get no rest
	Don't know how I work all day
	When will I learn?
	Memories get in the way
	Dmaj7      C#m7
	  I walk around
	 C#m7/F#                                     F#
	I can't hear a sound, folks talkin' loud, but I
	Dmaj7       C#m7
	Don't see at all
	 C#m7/F#                             F#
	I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't
	Emaj7        D#m7
	Know where to go
	Dmaj7        C#m7
	It's hopeless so
	             Cmaj7     Bm7  Bm7/E  E7
	I guess I'll leave it alone       well I

Verse 2:

	Spent all my day
	Fixin' up to go somewhere
	Thought I was late
	And I found she wasn't there
	I guess I'll find
	The love, peace of mind, some other time, but I
	Still have today
	I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't
	Know where to go
	It's hopeless so
	             Cmaj7     Am7/D
	I guess I'll leave it alone


	Gmaj7        Bm7
	Games people play
	 Am7                           D7
	Night or day they're just not matchin'
	Gmaj7            Bm7
	What they should do
	Keeps me feelin' blue
	Gmaj7         Bm7
	Been down too long
	 Am7                           D7
	Right, wrong, they just can't stop it
	Gmaj7        Bm7
	Spendin' all day
	            [1:  Bm7/E   E7  Bm7/E   E7]
	            [2:  Am7/D]
	Thinking just of you

Verse 3:

	Twelve forty-five
	Headed for the subway home
	I took my time
	'Cause I felt so all alone
	Not far away
	I heard a funny sound, took a look around, and I
	Could see her face
	Smile as she came, callin' out my name, so I
	Know where to go
	We'll take it slow
	           Cmaj7    Am7/D
	Guess I'll call it a day

	[repeat chorus; fade 2nd time]
