[Intro]
  Bsus2           D     E4
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 1]
Bsus2                         D            E4
Came in from a rainy Thursday on the ave - nue,
Bsus2                                D    E4
Thought I heard you talking softly,
Bsus2                              D            E4
  I turned on the lights, the tv, and the radi - o,
Bsus2                              D    E4
Still I can't escape the ghost of you,
Bsus2                           F#m
 What has happened to it all?  'Crazy!', some would say,
  C#                              D    Dsus2
Where is the life that I recog - nise?      (Gone away!)


[Chorus]
A                               Em7
   But I won't cry for yester - day,
                   Cadd9           G/B        Dsus2
There's an ordinary world, somehow, I have to find,
A                          Em7                 Cadd9
   And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
        G/B            A#(#11)
I will learn to sur - vive!


[Verse 2]
 Bsus2            E     E4 E
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

 Bsus2                            D           E4
Passion, or coincidence, once prompted you to say,
 Bsus2                            D   E4
"Pride will tear us both apart!"
          Bsus2
Well, now pride's gone out the window,
           D                E4
Cross the roof tops, runa - way,
Bsus2                         D     E4
 Left me in the vacuum of my heart!
Bsus2                        F#m
 What is happening to me?  'Crazy!', some would say,
  C#                       D             Dsus2
Where is my friend when I need you most?      (Gone away!)


[Chorus]
A                               Em7
   But I won't cry for yester - day,
                    Cadd9          G/B        Dsus2
There's an ordinary world, somehow, I have to find,
A                          Em7                 Cadd9
   And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
        G/B           Dsus2
I will learn to sur - vive!


[Break]
A              Em7            Cadd9  G/B   Dsus2
     Oo, hoo - hoo!   Ah, ah - ah!
                  A    Em7   Cadd9   G/B   A#(#11)
Just blow away------------!    Oh---!


[Verse 3]
Bsus2                               D           E4
Papers, in the roadside, tell of suffering and greed,
Bsus2                              D   E4
Feared today, ..forgot tomorrow,            oo - oo,
Bsus2                          D            E4
 Here beside the news of holy war and holy need,
Bsus2                            D     Dsus2
 Ours is just a little sorrowed talk!


[Chorus]
                   A                                 Em7
(Just blowing a - way!) And I don't cry for yester - day,
                    Cadd9          G/B        Dsus2
There's an ordinary world, somehow, I have to find,
A                          Em7                 Cadd9
   And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world,
        G/B          Dsus2
I will learn to sur - vive!


[Coda]
        A    Em7       Cadd9         G/B           Dsus2
Every world----- is my world--------------------------,
                            (I will learn to sur - vive!)

        A    Em7       Cadd9         G/B           Dsus2
  Any world----- is my world--------------------------,
                            (I will learn to sur - vive!)

        A    Em7       Cadd9   G/B     Dsus2
  Any world----- is my world----------------,

        A    Em7       Cadd9   G/B     Dsus2
Every world----- is my world----------------,

        A    Em7    Cadd9  G/B       D            Dsus2
Every world------! |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  ||
