Verse 1

AmAll around me are famCiliar faces. GWorn out places. DWorn out faces. AmBright and early for their Cdaily races. GGoing nowhere. DGoing nowhere. AmAnd their tears are filling Cup their glasses. GNo expression. DNo expression. AmHide my head; I want to Cdrown my sorrow. GNo tomorrow. DNo tomorrow.

Chorus

AmAnd I find it kinda Dfunny. I find it kinda Amsad. The dreams in which I'm Ddying Are the best I've ever Amhad. I find it hard to Dtell you, 'Cause I find it hard Amto take. When people run in Dcircles it's a very, very... Am CMad Dworld. Am CMad Dworld Am CMad Dworld. Am CMad Dworld.

Verse 2

AmChildren waiting for the Cday they feel good. GHappy birthday. DHappy birthday. AmMade to feel the way that Cevery child should. GSit and listen. DSit and listen. AmWent to school and I was Cvery nervous. GNo one knew me. DNo one knew me. AmHello, teacher tell me Cwhat's my lesson? GLook right through me. DLook right through me.

Chorus

AmAnd I find it kinda Dfunny. I find it kinda Amsad. The dreams in which I'm Ddying Are the best I've ever Amhad. I find it hard to Dtell you, 'Cause I find it hard Amto take. When people run in Dcircles it's a very, very... Am CMad Dworld. Am CMad Dworld. Am CMad Dworld. Am CMad Dworld. (At the end here, on the last 'world' I like to finish on A (major) chord instead of D, I feel it ends the piece better and sounds more meaningful... but that's just me!) - KT
