Memory Chords

I am completely in love with Andrew Lloyd Webber... this song is from his musical Cats.
 it sounds beautiful finger-picked with the chords below.  This song is in 6/8 time...
I don't really know all the lyrics but you get the general idea, if you know the melody
or are playing along with the song.. There are more than just a few key changes, but
basically the form of the song is the same throughout..Enjoy!

D                             Bm  
Daylight, see the dew on the sunflower
And a rose that is fading
Roses wither away
         A           G                Bm       
Like the sunflower I yearn to turn my face to the dawn
     A               D
I am waiting for the day

Bb                           Gm
Midnight, not a sound on the pavement
                    Eb                     Dm
Has the moon lost a memory? She is smiling alone
       F             Eb                 Gm
In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet
        F              Bb
And the wind begins to moan
[ Tab from: ]
Bb                       Gm
Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
    F          Eb               Gm
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
        F           Bb
Let the memory live again

Every street lamp seems to beat 
  F       Bb        F
A fainter listening warning
Dm                    C
Someone mutters and a street lamp flutters
    F       G       C
And soon it will be morning

Bb                            Gm
Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
         F          Eb                Gm
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
      F            Bb
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smokey days
C#             F#       C#
The stale cold smell of morning
A#m                        G#                      
A street lamp dies another night is over
C#      D#     G#
Another day is dawning
C#                         A#m
Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
       G#              F#              A#m
If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is
G#                  C#
Look, a new day has begun
