Transcripted by: Marc Chaunet
Chords by Xavier Alvarez (Apr. 2000)

       G#         Eb		  C#	      G#
The stars in the heavens still shine up above me
       C#          B
How lovely they'd seem if you were with me...
		Ebm		C#
But you're gone through the looking-glass
      B				       Bb
And I am left to pass these nights alone
     G#	       Eb	C#	      G#		  C#
I'm lost, I'm dumb, I'm blind.  I am drunk with sadness, sunk by madness
       B		     Ebm
The wave overwhelms me, the mirror repels me
       C#	   B                                               Bb
The echo of your laugh drifts through the looking-glass and I am alone

    Ebm	      Bb		Ebm	  C#	      B		  Bb
No friendship, no comfort, no future, no home.  The past lingers with me:
		C#		D	     C#		B  Bb
You're all the love I've ever known and without you I'm nothing
     Ebm	 Bb	Ebm	       Bb	Ebm
But empty and silent reflecting on all that I've lost
Ebm	   C#		B	Bb
I let you slip away so soon

Bb   B 	 Bb   G#     Bb  B  Bb  G#
Can you hear me?  This is my song:
B     Em     B	       Em
I am dying, you are gone.

       G#	    Eb	                 C#
These words are not enough to save my soul
	  G#		    C#
They just mock me from the mirror
      B			        Ebm
I'm cold and I'm yearning, I've told you I'm burning
My eyes can't stand the light...
         B				Bb
Like a stray dog in the night I'll shuffle off alone
   Ebm		   Bb	    Ebm	     C#
We all make our futures but I have lost mine
    Ebm	      Bb	        Ebm	  Bb
I'm hoping for a miracle but finding no sign...

     B			Bb			B		    C#
The stars in their constellations, each one just sadly flickers and falls
    B			Bb	  Ebm
Without you, they mean nothing at all.
