[Verse 1]
A     Asus2        Asus4 A
There was a man back in '95
     A           Asus2
Whose heart ran out of summers 
    Asus4    A      F#m
But before he died, I asked him 
Wait, what's the sense in life
          D     Dsus2   Esus4 E
Come over me, Come over me

He said,
 Asus2             Asus4     A 
Son why you got to sing that tune 
          A      Asus2       Asus4          A
Catch a Dylan song or some eclipse of the moon
          F#m                   F#m7
Let an angel swing and make you swoon
         D      Dsus2  Esus4   E
Then you will see... You will see

Then he said,
Here's a riddle for you
A        F#m7
Find the Answer
         D       Dsus2   E
There's a reason for the world

     A  Asus2  Asus4 A    (repeat)
You and I
[Verse 2]
A      Asus2        Asus4  A
Picked up my kid from school today
        A      Asus2            Asus4  A
Did you learn anything cause in the world today
             F#m           F#m7    
You can't live in a castle far away
        D      Dsus2     Esus4    E
Now talk to me, come talk to me
He said, 
A          Asus2           Asus4     A
Dad I'm big but we're smaller than small
       A         Asus2            Asus      A
In the scheme of things, well we're nothing at all
                 F#m                         F#m7   
Still  every mother's child sings a lonely song
      D        Dsus2    Esus4    E               
So play with me, come play with me

And Hey Dad
Here's a riddle for you
Asus2    F#m7

         D              E

I said, 
 D      E

A     A/G#       F#m

D     Dsus2        E

           A  Asus2  Asus4 A          
Who am I?

D         E              A                 F#m
There are secrets that we still have left to find
D             E                A             G
There have been mysteries from the beginning of time
D        E                A              F#
There are answers we're not wise enough to see
          D                            E7sus4    E   E7sus4   E 
He said... You looking for a clue I Love You free
A         Asus2         Asus4     A 
The batter swings and the summer flies
    A     Asus2    Asus4   A
As I look into my angel's eyes
  F#m7                            D
A song plays on while the moon is hiding over me
Something comes over me

A          Asus2      Asus4       A 
I guess we're big and I guess we're small
       A           Asus2           Asus4      A
If you think about it man you know we got it all
Cause we're all we got on this bouncing ball
And I love you free
I love you freely
