    {Verse:}
    FEAmGC
    Found that man reported missing, he wandered in his home 
    FEAmGC
    It don't seem too bad if you consider just what he's been through 
    AmEmAmEm
    Seems he met up with a gang of thieves 
    AmEmAmEm
    Who mistook him for a man of means 
    DmEmF
    They locked him up, then found he had no money 
    G#C
    So they let him go again 
    FEAmGC
    Now he's back at home and happy just to see the kids 
    {Pre-Chorus}

    I wish, that I could really tell you 
    Em7Fmaj7
    All the things that happened to me 
    Cmaj7
    Or all that I have seen 
    Fmaj7Em7Fmaj7Cmaj7
    A world full of people, their hearts full of joy 
    Fmaj7Em7Fmaj7Cmaj7
    Cities of light with no fear of war 
    Fmaj7Em7Fmaj7Cmaj7
    And thousands of creatures with happier lives 
    Fmaj7Em7Fmaj7Em7C
    And dreams of a future with meaning and no need to hide 
    (n.c.)
    Oh, keep it dark
    |:C :|
    FEAmGC
    It seems strange to have to lie about a world so bright 
    FEAmGC
    And tell instead a made-up story from the world of night 
    Cmaj7Fmaj7Cmaj7
    I wish, that I could really tell you 
    Em7Fmaj7
    All the things that happened to me
