[Intro]
C#m C#m D D F#m F#m
C#m C#m D D F#m F#m

[Verse 1]
C#m C#m D D F#m F#m
Did you ever read Albert Camus?
C#m C#m D D A A E E
The bit about how you got to turn away from the world to understand it
C#m C#m
Did you feel this too?
D D F#m F#m A A E E
I was in a mindless kind of queue
D D F#m F#m
But then I went and put myself right out

Found things just got a bit wilder


[Chorus]
D D F#m F#m
Haven't you heard right?
D D A A
It's a truly absurd life
D D F#m F#m
Tomorrow you could be a big hole
E E D D
And the next day you could be a king
A A
Can't return to my old ways
D D F#m F#m
When the nothingness held up the days
D D A A
And now come to think of it
E E D D A A D D F#m F#m
I only got out of bed for you



[Verse 2]
C#m C#m D D F#m F#m
I used to think nothing of the end
C#m C#m D D A A
Repeating each day was my forte
E E C#m C#m
Spinning out time like a spider with a web
D D F#m F#m A A E E
Devouring every second, I was fed
D D F#m F#m
But then I went and sailed right out, got lost
D D
Found things just got a bit lighter


[Chorus]
F#m F#m
Haven't you heard, love?
D D A A
It's a truly absurd love
D D F#m F#m
Tomorrow you could be a big kiss
E E D D
And the next day you could be a stone
A A
Can't return to my old lives
D D F#m F#m
Quite oblivious to all of the signs
D D A A
And now come to think of it
E E D D A A D D
I only got out of bed for you


[Bridge]
Dm Dm A A
Invited to the feast
Dm Dm A A
Only had one grape
Dm Dm A A
Always arrived ahead of time
E E A A
But turned out I was late
Dm Dm A A
I can see now the world does not care
Dm Dm A A
That is okay with me
Dm Dm A A D D
So I never needed a boat to sail out to the sea


[Chorus]
F#m F#m
Haven't you heard right?
D D A A
It's a truly absurd life
D D F#m F#m
Tomorrow you could be a big hole
E E D D
And the next day you could be a king
A A
Can't return to my old ways
D D F#m F#m
When the nothingness held up the days
D D A A
And now come to think of it
E E D D
I only got out of bed for you
F#m F#m
Haven't you heard, love?
D D A A
It's a truly absurd love
D D F#m F#m
Tomorrow you could be a big kiss
E E D D
And the next day you could be a stone
A A
Can't return to my old lives
D D F#m F#m
Quite oblivious to all of the signs
D D A A
And now come to think of it
E E D D
I only got out of bed for you
