Intro

|G#m|E|G#m|E|


Ist Verse

G#m				     E
The city streets are wet with rain tonight

G#m				     E 
The taxi drivers swerve from lane to lane

G#m 				     E
A lonely guitar man playin' down the hall

Eb7		     |G#m 		F#|C#|
Midnight blues comin' through the walls 


2nd verse

G#m			       E
I tried to call you on the telephone

G#m			       E 
I left it off the hook just to hear it ring

G#m				 E 
You told me you were better off alone

  Eb7		  E 
I never knew that tears could stain


1st Chorus
 
Am			F       G      Am
I'm on the roof and I'm starin' at the stars

	F	C	G 
Lookin' down at all the cars

      Bb  F 
I can see you

Am		      F	       G      Am 
In the window of your favorite corner bar

       F	    C	     G 
But to reach you is just too far

      Bb		  F 
And I might as well be on Mars


3rd verse 

G#m				   E
The city seems so old and grey and beat

G#m				E 
It closes in and makes me wanna suffocate

G#m			     E 
And you just live across the street

    Eb7	     	     E
But that's a billion miles away


2nd Chorus 

Am			      F	       G      Am
You've turned my world into a dark and lonely place

       F      C	      G			Bb  F 
Like a planet lost in space, my light's fadin'

Am			  F	   G	     Am 
I'd cross the universe to be right where you are

	F	 C	  G 
But I'm right in your backyard

      Bb		  F
And I might as well be on Mars 

		      G
I might as well be on Mars 

	  F   C
You can't see me

		       G 
I might as well be the Man on the Moon

 	  F    C
You can't hear me

Em 	    Fsus4 F  Em Dm	  C	 G
Oh, can you feel  me so close and yet so far
	
	F	      Eb D  C 
Baby, I might as well be on Mars
 

Solo over|G#m|E|G#m|E|G#m|E Eb7|E|

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

F# 
Maybe I should try

I can see you

Am		      F	       G      Am

But to reach you is just too far

And I might as well be on Mars
