F Fsus2 Am   C   F  Fsus2 Am      Amadd9
Another bad day, waste of promise

Are we  really getting near?
F  Fsus2 Am        C          F  Fsus2 Am     Amadd9

There's      nothing for you to prove
 
PRE CHORUS
 
F     Fsus2    Am     C
Is it funny or is it sad?

We leave and enter on our own
F     Fsus2    Am     C
Is it funny or is it sad?

I'm waiting for a hero to save the day
   Dm       Am
A heaviness so relentless
   E         F
An emptiness so monumental

I'm waiting for a hero to save the day

Now smash your keyboard into their faces, a silence so satisfying

I can understand why you left your home, I can understand

I'm waiting for a hero to save the day

I'm waiting for a hero to save the day

       F    Fsus2     Am      C         F   Esus4              E
I can make you smile, I can make you laugh, what else is there in this world?
    F      Fsus2    Am    C         F        Fsus2     Am      Amadd9
So take my hand and marry me, I'll make your branches sprout a-green

And if you take my hand

I've got so much love to give
   E           F
A vessel to receive it

Take the day off work, our time is now, our time is now
