F#                   D#m      
The morning is dead, and the day is too
C                                     F      
there's nothing left here to greet me but the velvet moon
C#                G#   
all my loneliness I have felt today
D#                                F#                         
It's a little more than enough to make a man throw himself away

G#
And I continue            to burn the midnight lamp      alone

(repeat intro)
Now the smiling portrait of you is still hanging on my frowning wall
It really doesn't bother me too much at all
It's just the ever falling dust that makes it so hard for me to see
that forgotten earring laying on the floor facing coldly towards the door

And I continue to burn the midnight lamp alone

So here I sit to face that same old fireplace 
getting ready for the same old explosion going through my mind
soon enough time will tell about the circus and the wishing well
and someone who will buy and sell for me
someone who will toll my bell

And I continue to burn the midnight lamp alone
