               G   
You're on your own,
                  Cm 
in a world you've grown
          A#
Few more years to go,
      D
Don't let the hurdle fall
          A#        Cm   D
So be the girl you loved,
A#     Cm        D
Be the girl you loved


     G                Cm      
I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
                 A#
Ignore everybody else,
            D
We're alone now
G                     Cm
I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
                 A#
Ignore everybody else,
            D
We're alone now


             G
Suddenly I'm hit
        Cm
Is this darkness of the dawn
                     A#
And your friends are gone
                       D
When you friends won't come
                     Cm    A#
So show me where you fit
                     Cm    D
So show me where you fit

We're alone now
We're alone now
We're alone now
I'll wait
We're alone now
We're alone now
I'll wait
We're alone now
We're alone now
We're alone now
We're alone now
             G
Suddenly I'm hit
        Cm
Is this darkness of the dawn
                     A#
And your friends are gone
                       D
When you friends won't come

So show me where you fit
