D               G              D   D/G   D
Unknown engines underneath the city
D                   G                   A
Steam pushing up in billows through the grates
        Bm               G                D         G     D        A
Frankie Lymon's tracking "Seabreeze" in a studio in Harlem, Its 1968.

Just a pair of tunes to hammer out.
D           G                A
Everybody's off the clock by 10.
    Bm        G             D          G             D                  A              D   D/G   D
The loneliest people in the whole wide world are the ones you're never going to see again.

Feels so free when I hit the avenue.
D              G               A
Nothing like a New York summer night.
Bm              G               
Every dream's a good dream,
     D                G           D
Even awful dreams are good dreams,
                   A
If you're doing it right.

D                G             D   D/G   D
Remember soaring higher than a cloud.
D                G             A
Get pretty sentimental now and then.
    Bm        G             D          G             D                  A              D   D/G   D

And four hours north of Portland, a radio flips on.
         Bm              G                            A
And some no one from the future remembers that you're gone.

D              G            D     D/G      D
Armies massing in the dusky distance.
D              G           A
Ghosted in the ribbon microphone.
Bm             G                  D  D/G      D  
Leave a little mark on something, maybe,
G                        A
Take the secret circuit home.

D              G                 D         D/G      D
Nothing in the shadows but the shadow hands.
D               G                      A
Reaching out to sad, young, frightened men.
    Bm        G             D          G             D                  A              D   D/G   D 
The loneliest people in the whole wide world are the ones you're never going to see again.
          Bm        G             D          G             D                  A              D   D/G   D 
Yeah, the loneliest people in the whole wide world are the ones you're never going to see again.

only thing wrong is the chorus isnt Bm, its Em. at least thats how he played it live for pitchfork. but to honest,Bm sounds just as good in my opinion. and until i saw the live video thats how i played it. great job!

If you're referring to him playing this for Pitchfork under the Brooklyn Bridge (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsPp99oGbi0), I think he's playing Bm, not Em. Frustratingly, whoever edited this video seemed to be deliberately avoiding showing his hands whenever he got to the chorus (we see the architecture of Lower Manhattan instead), but at "Leave a little mark on something, maybe," you can see him clearly play Bm.

This looks great. The one suggested change I'd make is that at the end of each "loneliest people..." line, he goes from A to the D-D/G riff. Each verse consists of two sections that are completely identical except the first half ends with A and the second follows that A with the little D-D/G riff to end the verse.
