Artist: They Might Be Giants
Song: Hopeless Bleak Despair
Album: Mink Car

Verse 1:
  E                         B7
I never knew what everybody meant
  C#m                  B7
By endless, hopeless, bleak despair
  G#m                  C#m
Until one day when I found out
  F#m                       B7
The first time I ever left my house
  G#m                      C#m
It saw me and followed me home
      F#m                           B
And stayed with me for my whole life


Pre Chorus:
      A       G#m      F#m            E
For years and years I wandered the earth
  A             G#m      F#m      E
Condemned to a life of bleak despair
  B    A    G#m    F#m    A
Then, one day, I looked around
       G#m      F#m     E
And found it had disappeared

Chorus:
            B       E
Hopeless bleak despair
          B       E
It was always there
   A        G#m        F#m        E
And then, one day, it disappeared
       B        E
In a puff of smoke
     G#
In an unceremonious way
  A    G#m   F#m     E
One day, it disappeared

Verse 2:
All I had ever wanted in my life
Was only to be free of it
It drove away my family
It made me lose my job
Whenever anybody saw it
They'd say "get out of here"


Pre Chorus:
For years and years I wandered the earth
Sick of my life, looking forward to death
Then, one day, I looked around 
And found it had disappeared

Chorus:
Hopeless bleak despair
It was always there
And then, one day, it disappeared
In a puff of smoke
In an unceremonious way
One day, it disappeared

Bridge:
Hopeless bleak despair
Hopeless bleak despair
Hopeless bleak despair

Pre Chorus:
For years and years I wandered the earth
Until I died and went to hell 
But my despair had ascended to heaven
That's how I finally got rid of it

Chorus:
Hopeless bleak despair
It was always there
And then, one day, it disappeared
In a puff of smoke
In an unceremonious way
One day, it disappeared
Hopeless bleak despair
It was always there
And then, one day, it disappeared
In a puff of smoke
In an unceremonious way
One day, it disappeared
