[Verse 1]
Em        G
 I walk a lonely road
    D             A           Em
The only one that I have ever known
           G
Don't know where it goes
D                 A             Em   G  D  A
But it's home to me and I walk alone

[Verse 2]
Em            G
  I walk this empty street
D           A              Em
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
          G
Where the city sleeps
    D               A            Em    G
and I'm the only one and I walk alone
D              A         Em   G
  I walk alone, I walk alone
D              A       Em7/B
  I walk alone, I walk a...

[Chorus]
C      G          D               Em
  My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
C       G       D               Em
  My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
C      G        D                Em
  Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
C        G     B5
  Till then I walk alone

[Interlude]
Em      G      D      A
  Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-
Em         G      D      A
Aah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

[Verse 3]
Em             G
  I'm walking down the line
D                 A              Em
That divides me somewhere in my mind
        G
On the border line
D                 A            Em   G  D  A
Of the edge and where I walk alone

[Verse 4]
Em       G
  Read between the lines
D                    A              Em
What's fucked up and everything's alright
         G
Check my vital signs
    D               A                Em   G
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone
D              A         Em   G
  I walk alone, I walk alone
D              A       Em7/B
  I walk alone, I walk a...

[Chorus]
C      G          D               Em
  My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
C       G       D               Em
  My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
C      G        D                Em
  Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
C        G     B5
  Till then I walk alone

[Interlude]
Em      G      D      A
  Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-
Em         G      D             A
Aah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, I walk alone, I walk a...
