Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner.

E           B         C#m     A

Sometimes I feel like my only friend

E                B            C#m     B A

It's this city I live in, the City of Angels.

E         B       C#m       A     EM7

Lonely as I am, together we cry.

 

I drive on the streets ‘cause she's my companion.

I walk through the hills ‘cause she knows who I am.

She sees my good deeds and kisses me windy.

I never worried now that is a lie.

 

F#m                E    B      F#m

I don't ever wanna feel like I did that day.

F#m                    E     B       F#m

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way.

F#m                E    B      F#m

I don't ever wanna feel like I did that day.

F#m                    E     B       F#m

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way.

E  B  C#m/G#    B/F#   A/E     E  B  C#m/G#   B/F#  A/E

Yeah!---------  Yeah.  Yeah.

 

It's hard to believe that there's nobody out there.

It's hard to believe that I'm all alone.

At least I have her love, this city she loves me.

Lonely as I am, together we cry.

 

I don't ever want to feel like I did that day.

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way.

I don't ever wanna feel like I did that day.

Take me to the place I love, take me all the way.

Under the Bridge downtown, is where I drew some blood.

A                    C   G6            FM7

Under the Bridge downtown, I could not get enough.

A                    C   G6         FM7

Under the Bridge downtown, forgot about my love.

Under the Bridge downtown, I gave my life away--------------------------!
