E5       (B/Eb)         (A5)          (D5)

  It was meant to be but all along it never meant a thing

E5       (B/Eb)             (A5)    (D5)

  Never stopped to ask you why      you didn't pass me by

E5        (B/Eb)           (A5)  (D5)

  Did you see me when your life flashed before your eyes?

E5       (B/Eb)             (A5)         (D5)

  Was it just that I wasn't hard enough, hard enough for you?

 

Chorus:

E5 (6, w/Main Riff)

Stop using my   Confusion   Wait, wait

 

        / (F#5) - (A5) - / (E5) - - - /

There's a world out there   (There's a world out there)

        / (D5) - (G5) - / (E5) - - - /

Don't you deny me  (Don't you deny me)

        / (F#5) - (A5) - / (E5) - - - /

Give me one last wish (Give me one last wish)

        / (D5) - (G5) - /

There's a world out there

 

E5   (B/Eb)     (A5)            (D5)

  Elementary, I solved them all, all your mysteries

E5       (B/Eb)             (A5)  (D5)

  Settle down and with good time, we can solve all mine

E5        (B/Eb)           (A5)    (D5)

  Tell me lies, oh tell me when,   tell me off again

E5           (B/Eb)                 (A5)        (D5)

  And I will let you know when I've had enough, had enough of you

 

Chorus

 

    E                   F#m       G#m                 A

I know you've got your reasons   Hey, let's call it even

G                 F               / E - - A / E - - - /

Turn out all the lights and go to bed

E                    F#m     G#m           A

Still I get this feeling    No one will believe me

G                   F               / E - - A / E - - - /

When I let these ghosts outside my head

There's a world out there   (There's a world out there)
