    [D                   Dsus4]    [D7         D7sus4]

        Every day is so          wonderful

                    Bm                     Gm

    And suddenly, it's hard to breathe

    [D                   Dsus4]  [D7         D7sus4]

        To all your friends, you're   delirious

              Bm                      Gm

    So consumed in all your doom

    [D                        Dsus4] [D7         D7sus4]

         Trying hard to fill the     emptiness

                       Bm                         Gm

    The piece is gone, left the puzzle undone, ain't that the way it is

    w/punk strum:

    D                                   D7

        No matter what we do,    no matter what they say

    Bm                                                     Gm

         When the sun comes shining through     Then the clouds won't stay

    D                                   D7

        And everywhere we go,  the sun won't always shine

    Bm                                      Gm

    But tomorrow will find a way   on the other side
