[Verse 1]
      Am
I was never alone in the middle of the lake
      G
I was always outside of my mind
       Dm               Bm 
And I never dreamed a dream I liked
           C                G
And in the common rooms I cried
    F                                   Am
In rock 'n' roll there's a mighty long fall
                           F    Am
Oh, there's a mighty loud call....

[Pre-Chorus]
   Am
I live my life in the middle of the night
    G
My breath goes up and down counting time
        Dm          Am
By the light of day I fade away
           C               G
And in the common rooms I cry
     F                          Am
And rock 'n' roll, you call my name

[Verse 2]
                 F
I call me to the stage
             G
Where I sing my little songs of
F                        Fm
Love and pain, winds of change
                                Am      
Or simply singing, I'm singing in the rain
(Singing, singing, singing, singing, singing, singing)

[Post-Chorus]
     Am      
You make it worth living this terrible life
       G
I was burnt by the sun, frozen in ice
      Dm                    Am 
I was dead on arrival, missing in action, living a fraction
            C                                G
And in the common rooms the toil takes it's toll
     F                              Am
And rock 'n' roll, can you save my life?
                       F
Can you make me live forever?
             Am
Oh, save my life
      F             G
Oh, I sing my songs...
   F                        Fm 
Of love and pain, winds of change
                               Am 
Or simply singing, I'm singing in the rain
  G       
Singing in the rain
Singing
