Intro Riff x1

G
I close my eyes when I get too sad. 
D5
I think thoughts that I know are bad. 
C5
Close my eyes and I count to ten. 
D5
Hope it’s over when I open them. 
G
I want the things that I had before,
D5
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door. 
C5
I wish I could count to ten,
D5
make everything be wonderful again. 
G
Hope my Mom and I hope my Dad 
D5
figure out why they get so mad. 
C5
Hear them scream, hear them fight. 
D5
They say bad words that make me want to cry. 
G
I close my eyes when I go to bed 
D5
and I dream of angels that make me smile. 
C5
I feel better when I hear them say, 
D5
"Everything will be wonderful some day."

G5                                E5  
Go to school and I run and play. 
D5                                  E5
I tell the kids that it’s all O.K.

G5                                   E5
I go to my room and I close my eyes, 
D5                                     E5
I make believe that I have a new life. 
C5                              E5 
I do believe you when you say,
D5                                      E5
"Everything will be wonderful someday."
