Gm					Eb
The city streets are wet with rain tonight
Gm				       Eb
Taxi drivers swerve from lane to lane
Gm					Eb
A lonely guitar man playin' down the hall
D			  Gm  		F	C
Midnight blues comin' through the walls

Gm				Eb
I tried to call you on the telephone
Gm				Eb		
I left it off the hook just to hear it ring
Gm				       Eb 
You told me you were better off alone
D		       Eb
I never knew that tears could stain

G#m 			    E       F#       G#m
I'm on the roof and I'm starin' at the stars
	    E	    B	   F#
Lookin' down at all the cars
          A    E
I can see you
G#m         		    E	      F#     G#m
In the window of your favorite corner bar
E	          B         F#
But to reach you is just too far
A		         E
And I might as well be on Mars

Gm					Eb
The city seems so old and grey and beat
Gm					Eb
It closes in and makes me wanna suffocate
Gm				Eb
And you just live across the street
        D			Eb
But that's a billion miles away

G#m				    E  	       F#       G#m
You've turned my world into a dark and lonely place
  E	B	F#	
Like a planet lost in space
	       A  E
My light is fadin'
G#m			     E		F#	G#m
I'd cross the universe to be right where you are
   E          B	     F#
But I'm right in your backyard
	A			E
And I might as well be on Mars

I might as well be on Mars
	     E     B
You can't see me
I might as well be the Man on the Moon
                   E     B
You can't hear me
Ebm	     Esus4   E
Oh, can you feel me 
        C#m       B        F#
So close and yet so far
	    A	          Gm F# 	B
Baby, I might as well be on Mars

Gm| Eb
Gm| Eb
Gm| Eb

Baby, I can't fly
If I could I'd come down to ya
Maybe I should try


Repeating on the line: “yeah I might as well be on mars”:
G#m	E	B	F#
Gm   	Eb	Bb	F
Gb	D	A	E (repeat 3 or 4 times)
End on Em

This is a really good song, but without having made any deeper analysis I'd say it is played tuned down one half step on the record (and of course all the chords above should be one half step higher).
And it also seems some of the chords above are wrong anyway...

Which chords are wrong? Could you please correct the song, then?

Sorry but it is you who's wrong here - the chords are not... and the song is *not* to be played with a tuned down guitar either.
