Hallway Mirror

  A                  C#7                Bm                   E7

I sit inside this room, in the house, we built together 

A                       C#m                           D                  E

Thinking that the plans we drew would somehow last forever

D                             E                 A              D

Now in these empty rooms I sit in quiet disarray

                  D              E                            D             E         A

With the furniture you rearranged…     just before you went away

 

 

C#m

When I look into the hallway mirror

           D             A

I can’t recognize myself

D                        A

Or see what others see 

D                          E

And what you saw in me

D                                 E

I can’t pretend to understand 

                   A                D

The deep feelings I still keep

             D                  E

With the hole you left inside of me

          D             E        A                         

And a heart that lost a beat                 

C#7                        

Why you left and where you are 

        F#m

And how it came to be

Bm                          Bm7         

Now I share this big old house 

             E                               

with the broken man in me

I lie down in this bed, in a bed we shared together 

Sweet thoughts inside my head, sweet love that I remember

Now I lay here all alone and I think of yesterday

How it all just seemed to change….before you went away

       Instrumental 

 

Why you left and where you are 

And how it came to be

Now I share this big old house 

with the broken man in me

I walk through these dark halls and hear the sound of silence

Feeling like I’ve drowned, in a sea of tears and sadness

Now in these empty rooms I think about you everyday

And how our world went upside down… just before you went away

 

When I look into the hallway mirror

I can’t recognize myself

Or see what others see 

And what you saw in me

 

I can’t pretend to understand 

The deep feelings I still keep

With the hole you left inside of me

And a heart that lost a beat                 

With the hole you left inside of me

And a heart that lost a beat
