Mad World lyrics



Mad World – Tears For Fears!

All around me are familiar faces,
worn out places, worn out faces.
Bright and early for their daily races,
going nowhere, going nowhere.
Their tears are filling up their glasses,
no expression, no expression.
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow,
no tomorrow, no tomorrow.

And I find it kinda funny,
I find it kinda sad.
The dreams in which I’m dying,
are the best I’ve ever had.
I find it hard to tell you,
I find it hard to take.
When people run in circles,
It’s a very, very mad world, mad world.

Children waiting for the day they feel good,
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday.
And I feel the way that every child should,
sit and listen, sit and listen.
Went to school and I was very nervous,
no one knew me, no one knew me.
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson,
look right through me, look right through me.

And I find it kinda funny,
I find it kinda sad.
The dreams in which I’m dying,
are the best I’ve ever had.
I find it hard to tell you,
I find it hard to take.
When people run in circles,
it’s a very, very mad world, mad world.
Enlarging your world,
mad world.

Intermediate Acoustic Songs

Intermediate Acoustic Guitar Songs

The intermediate songs can not be played using just basic open position chords. We have to move up the fretboard and play CAGED barre chords as well.

We also incorporate bass lines, pentatonic licks, extended chords, and play vocal melodies. Most importantly, we invent a 2nd guitar part and play these songs together.
