 Chorus:
Gtr 1 plays what it uses to 2 times.
Gtr 2 has a new fill added in its last bar, so entirely it plays this:

I'm alone sitting with my broken glass
My four walls follow me through my past
I was on a Paris train
I emerged in London rain
And you were waiting there swimming through apologies

I remember searching for those perfect words
I was hoping you might change your mind
I remember a solider standing next to me
Riding on the metro

I was smiling as you took my hand
So the mood we spoke in France
You were passed the shallow word
Years have passed there's still a hurt
You were passed the shallow word
Years have passed there's still a hurt
I can see it now smiling as I pulled away
Sorry

I remember the letter wrinkled in my hand
"I love you always" filled my eye
I remember the night we walked along the Seine
Riding on the metro

I remember a feeling coming over me
The solider turned, then walked away
Fuck you for loving me
Riding on the metro
