Intro: F(no 3) Fmaj7 Gm7 Bb+2

Am7 C Bb+2

F Fmaj7

They say that these are not the best of times

Gm7 Bb+2 F Fmaj7 Gm7 Bb+2

But they're the only times I've ever known

F Fmaj7 Gm7

And I believe there is a time for meditation

Bb+2 C G C

In cathedrals of our own

A7 Dm C Bb+2 F

Now I've seen that sad surrender in my lover's eyes

G7sus G7 Csus C

And I can only stand apart and sympathize

Bb F Gm7

For we are always what our situations hand us

C Bb+2 Eb Bb

It's either sadness or euphoria


So we'll argue and we'll compromise

And realize that nothing's ever changed

For all our mutual experience

Out separate conclusions are the same.

Now we are forced to recognize our inhumanity

Our reason coexists with our insanity

And though we choose between reality and madness

It's either sadness or euphoria


Dm C Bb+2 F

How thoughtlessly we dissipate our energies

G7sus G7 Csus C

Perhaps we don't fulfill each other's fantasies

Bb F Gm7

And as we stand upon the ledges of our lives

C Bb+2 Eb Bb

With our respective similarities


It's either sadness or euphoria.
