Intro Riff x1
 G
 I close my eyes when I get too sad.
 D5
 I think thoughts that I know are bad.
 C5
 Close my eyes and I count to ten.
 D5
 Hope it's over when I open them.
 G
 I want the things that I had before,
 D5
 Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door.
 C5
 I wish I could count to ten,
 D5
 make everything be wonderful again.
 G
 Hope my Mom and I hope my Dad
 D5
 figure out why they get so mad.
 C5
 Hear them scream, hear them fight.
 D5
 They say bad words that make me want to cry.
 G
 I close my eyes when I go to bed
 D5
 and I dream of angels that make me smile.
 C5
 I feel better when I hear them say,
 D5
 "Everything will be wonderful some day."
