	  I lie awake, my lonely room tells me there's no one else
	Bm7-5   E7
	No one else

Chorus:

	                 Am         G6   Fmaj7

	  Bm7-5                E           Am/E  Dm/E   E
	Reveals the bed that you're not in
	                 Am         G6    Fmaj7
	I reach for the light, it shines across the room
	    Bm7-5                 E             Am/E  Dm/E   E
	And brings to mind what might have been

Verse 2:

	I tell myself I'm better off   no one can hurt me now
	I see your crumpled photograph   it makes me laugh out loud
	Laugh out loud

[repeat chorus]

Bridge:

	        F      Em      Dm       G7        C    /B    /A   /G
	When I wish I could forget how good you looked    tonight
	           F       Em       F     Dm        G7
	When you smiled at me and walked away with him  (oh... oh, no!)

[guitar solo over verse chords]

[repeat chorus; rit. at end]

	(I  reach  for  the  light)
	                       I tell myself I'm better off, no one can hurt
					me now
	(I  reach  for  the  light)
			       I see your crumbled photograph, it makes me
	                             laugh out loud
	(I  reach  for  the  light)
	                       I lie awake, my lonely room   tells me there's
	                             no one else
