He stays home home for work this time
  DmDm chord
He never really told his wife
   AmAm chord                           FF chord           
He never really told a lie but this time he

decides that it's alright.
    AmAm chord         FF chord     GG chord   
It's alright.
CC chord                                DmDm chord
No one really knows his mind and no one knows behind his eyes.

The man deserves a medal
          FF chord           GG chord             CC chord            DmDm chord
But he's never really won a prize before.

He goes to lock the door.

Pre-Chorus:
FF chord     AmAm chord    GG chord
He is falling
     CC chord        EmEm chord    GG chord    FF chord

The world looks down and frowns.

Get up cause the world has left you lying on the ground.
                    DmDm chord                       AmAm chord
You're my pride and joy, you're my pride and joy.

DmDm chord
Someone said to you goodbye
AmAm chord                                FF chord            
They deflect the disrespect when they say that 
      GG chord               CC chord     DmDm chord
they blame it on the times

We all know you're qualified to fix a chair and love your wife
AmAm chord                                 FF chord        
They all know you're qualified but they lie 
           GG chord                CC chord  DmDm chord
when they blame it on the times.
                        AmAm chord      FF chord      GG chord
And we blame it on the times.
