This is a great ballad.  It's a simple chord progression, but it has a
lot of style and dynamics involved.  Enjoy!

Intro: D-D-C-A

(Verse 1)
D           D   C                                   A
It's 3AM.      And I'm awake and my heart is still dreaming.

D           D   C                                      A
It's 3AM.      And outside I hear the souls still screaming.

D                    D C                         A
It's been so long, you know since my head's been this clear.

D                                          D     C
Just like a ship lost in the night.      I just don't know which way I
should steer.

D                                  A              D
But I'll keep chasing my dreams.     And only you can make them real.

D                                         A
And I pour my heart out every night.

D                                     A
But do you know the way I feel?

(Verse 2)
D                               D      C
Sometimes this is work.       And don't you know sometimes this is play.

D                           D                       C

Sometimes you are listening to me.   And sometimes you don't hear a damn

that I say.

D                                 D  C                      A
Sometimes there's a girl.    Sometimes I go home alone.

D                                            D         C
And I guess it's no wonder right now.     That I do very well on my own.

(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat verse 1 slower and arpegiate the chords)
