C  Em   Dm7  F2  Em7  G   F2

                C                Em                 Dm7               F2             C  Em Dm7 F2
They say that these are not the best of times, but they're the only times I've ever known
         C                Em          Dm7           F2             G  D G
And I believe there is a time for meditation in cathedrals of our own

-E7       Am                G           F2          - C/E 
Now I've seen that sad surrender in my lover's eyes
    D7sus        D7             Gsus      G
And I can only stand apart and sympathize
            F               C/E        Dm7                  G            F2    Bb- F
For we are always what our situations hand us, it's either sadness or euphoria

           C              Em               Dm7         F2              C  Em Dm7 F2
So we'll argue and we'll compromise, and realize that nothing's ever changed
             C        Em           Dm7          F2                G  D G
For all our mutual experience, our separate conclusions are the same

-E7         Am             G           F2       -C/E 
Now we are forced to recognize our inhumanity
    D7sus      D7              Gsus      G
Our reason coexists with our insanity 
                F             C/E        Dm7                   G           F2     Bb-F  E7-
And though we choose between reality and madness, it's either sadness or euphoria

      Am              G            F2     -C/E 
How thoughtlessly we dissipate our energies
   D7sus             D7               Gsus     G
Perhaps we don't fulfill each other's fantasies
            F             C/E          Dm7             G              F2      Bb- 
And as we stand upon the ledges of our lives with our respective similarities 

F             G            C     C/E
It's either sadness or euphoria       (repeat and fade)
