Adam Lambert - Mad World - Live Version (Tears for Fears cover)
American Idol Performance on 7th April, 2009

Tabbed by: Asif Zaman
Date: 14th April, 2009

Tuning: Standard

Note: I am pretty sure about the chord sequence. I have fixed the key to A.

This basically a short version of the original Tears for Fears version. There are some 
in the lyris of the first verse, the rest are same as the original.

You can ignore the A5 chords and play it as Am if you want. But A5 sounds better if you 
plucking.

Chords:
A5      x 0 2 2 x 0
Am      x 0 2 2 1 0
Am7     x 0 2 0 1 0
C       x 3 2 0 1 0
G       3 5 5 4 3 3
D       x x 0 2 3 2


Verse 1:
A5                C
All around me are familiar faces

G                D
Worn out places, worn out faces

A5                       C
Going nowhere with their daily races

G              D
Going nowhere, going nowhere

Chorus:
Am                    D
And I find it kind of funny

                  A5
I find it kind of sad

                        D
The dreams in which I'm dying

                       A5
Are the best I've ever had

                  D
I find it hard to tell you

                         Am
'Cause I find it hard to take

A5                 D
When people run in circles
                   C
It's a very, very

     D
Mad World

Verse 2:

A5                       C
I Went to school and I was very nervous

G               D
No one knew me, no one knew me

A5                     C
Hello teacher, tell me what's my lesson

G                      D                       Am
Look right through me, look right through me..ee

Chorus 2:
A5                    D
And I find it kind of funny

                  A5
I find it kind of sad

                        D
The dreams in which I'm dying

                       A5
Are the best I've ever had

                  D
I find it hard to tell you

                         A5
'Cause I find it hard to take

                   D
When people run in circles

It's a,  very very
