Here's my shot at "The Metro" by Berlin from their 1983 Geffen Album "Pleasure Victim" 
transposed to guitar).
Please listen to the song for the timing values.

Boy, that Teri Nunn was hot, eh?

I'm alone, sitting with my empty glass
My four walls follow me through my past
I was on a Paris train.  I emerged in London rain
and you were waiting there, swimming through apologies

CHORUS
A5         B5                G5           D5
I remember searching for the perfect words

A5           B5                    G5
I was hoping you might change your mind

A5           B5              G5         D5
I remember a soldier sleeping next to me

A5            B5  G5  A5   B5
Riding on the Metro

Lead Riff                            Hold thru second half of verse.

You wore white, smiling as you took my hand
and so we moved, we spoke of wintertime in France
Minutes passed with shallow words.  Years have passed and still the hurt
I can see you now, smiling as you pulled away.

CHORUS
I remember the letter wrinkled in my hand
"I'll love you always" filled my eyes
I remember the night we walked along the Seine
Riding on the Metro

CHORUS
I remember a feeling coming over me
The soldier turned and walked away
I remember hating you for loving me
Riding on the Metro

I'm alone, sitting with a broken glass
My four walls follow me through my past
I was on a Paris train.  I emerged in London rain
and you were waiting there, swimming through apologies
(sorry)
