C                               F#       F                   C
 We never thought that you were gone, until we turned the lights on
                  F#          F           Am
And spoke to your god but he ain't saying nothing
           C                        F                  Fm             C
Except for something about your life going to waste in more ways than one
   F#    F               C
Oh oh, I never liked him anyway

C                                  F#        F                  C
 You push it most days when you're young and then one day you grow up
               F#     F                    Am
And everyone's wrong, they can't teach you nothing
              C                            F                             Fm              C
They give you nothing, so you get thinking, "Maybe there's a phase where everyone floats south
    F#     F            C         C7
Oh, oh, in never ending lemonade."

  F             Fm                   C        G         Am        G
Inside of myself, daylight is almost waking up slow and wondering
                F                        D7
How sometimes it isn't always good here
              C     Am
What made you go?
    G             F           C       Am
And when did you get back from Mars?
    G             F            C
And when did you get back from Mars?

| C | F# F | C | F# F  |

C                              F#        F                   C
 You circled 'round odd fallen stars and reached out for the lightening
                F#       F               Am
Until your were stung, until there was a nice ring
         C                                F                      Fm             C
The only right thing, so you get thinking, "Maybe in a way, I'll never know for sure
    F#      F           C         C7
Oh, oh, the full sad of everyone."

  F             Fm                   C        G         Am        G
Inside of myself, daylight is almost waking up slow and wondering
                F                        D7
How sometimes it isn't always good here
              C     Am
What made you go?
    G             F           C       Am
And when did you get back from Mars?
G             F        C             Am
When did you get back? When did you get back?
G             F           C       Am
When did you get back from Mars?
G             F
When did you get back?
C    Am            G      F        C          Am               G         F
 And hey, is there anyone known who gets along just great with everyone
   C        Am      G        F
On all the days, on all the days
   C        Am      G        F
On all the days, on all the days
