lyrics

Cm --------------- G ---------------- Ab -------------- Eb
First, just wait a second; can you hear the major third?
Fm ------------------- Db --------- Fm7
Go forth and drink a fifth to celebrate

Cm -------------------------- G ------------- Ab -------- Eb
Those foolish dreams that beckon will forever be deferred
Fm --------------- Db ------------------- Fm7
But you can still imagine that you're great

Ab ----------------------- Bb ----------------- Cm
As a boy, they told you that you could do anything
Ab ------------------ Bb ------------- Eb -- Db -- Ab
Absolutely nothing you could not achieve
Ab -------------------------- Bb ------------------- Cm
Maybe so, but when they said those things to you, my friend
Ab ------------------------- Bb ------------ Eb ---- Db -- Ab -- Bb
They just mostly needed something to believe in, to believe

Am Ab Eb Cm
Ahhh...
Am Ab Eb G Fm G7
Ahhh...

Your father painted poetry with hundred-dollar words
But the rent was seven-hundred dollars more

Your mother sketched out universes ruled by giant birds
'Til the real world came a-knocking at her door

When they were young, they were told that they could do anything
Absolutely nothing they could not achieve
Maybe so, but when they said those things to them, my friend
They just mostly needed something to believe in, to believe
