THIS SIDE OF THE LOOKING-GLASS

from Over
     G#           D#           C#                G#
The stars in the heavens still shine up above me
     C#            B
How lovely they'd seem if you were with me...
                D#m           C#
But you're gone through the looking-glass
    B                               A#
And I am left to pass these nights alone

     G#         D#         C#      G#                    C#
I'm lost, I'm dumb, I'm blind.  I am drunk with sadness, sunk by madness
      B                     D#m
The wave overwhelms me, the mirror repels me
      C#                                B
The echo of your laugh drifts through the looking-glass
         A#
And I am alone

    D#m            A#         D#m       C#         B            A#
No friendship, no comfort, no future, no home.  The past lingers with me:
                G#           A            G#          F#  F
You're all the love I've ever known and without you I'm nothing
    D#m         A#      D#m       A#          D#m
But empty and silent reflecting on all that I've lost
D#m       C#             B                A#
I let you slip away so soon

A#   B    A#   G#    A#   B A#  G#
Can you hear me?  This is my song:
 B    Em     B       Em
I am dying, you are gone.

           G#            D#               C#
These words are not enough to save my soul
          G#                C#
They just mock me from the mirror
      B                         D#m
I'm cold and I'm yearning, I've told you I'm burning
     C#
My eyes can't stand the light...
         B                                      A#
Like a stray dog in the night I'll shuffle off alone
   D#m           A#        D#m          C#
We all make our futures but I have lost mine
    D#m        A#                       D#m             A#
I'm hoping for a miracle but finding no sign...

     B                  A#                     B                        C#
The stars in their constellations, each one just sadly flickers and falls
      B                 A#        D#m
Without you, they mean nothing at all.
