==============                                                        

Piano approximated for guitar. Capo on 1.

Eb5     Eb5/C#

Db              Db/B
Girl lives on a white sheet

      Db/A             Db/Ab
She's deep in a trance
                     Db
While her friends go out and dance

Db  F#  Db/G  F#/Bb

G           Em/B               A
 She's all alone, don't ask me why
     G                 F#m
This kid from Brooklyn cries

Boy struts on the main street
He's dressed for effect
But his eyes reveal he's real erect

He's all alone, don't ask me why
This kid from Brooklyn cries

Db                      Dbmaj7/Ab
And they're both just a mile apart
     Db6                 Fm
Just streets away from a kindred heart

          Eb                  Db            Eb     Eb5/C#
And there might as well be an ocean between them

There might as well be an ocean between them


Bb              Ab
You and me just can't relate
Bb                Eb
We get love given on a plate
Bb                  Ab
Is it love or is it fate?
Cm    Gm   F
We're not alone

Same girl in the sunshine
Such a perfect shape
And he can't talk, he just has to gape

She walks alone, don't ask me why
This kid from Brooklyn cries

Same boy doin' cell time
Head in his hand, pickup didn't go quite as he planned

He feels alone, don't ask me why
This kid from Brooklyn cries

And they're both just a mile apart
Just streets away from a kindred heart
But there might as well be an ocean between them
Yes, there might as well be an ocean between them


Cm   Gm   F   Db
