[G] this [A]   [Bm]   [A]    
[G]      [A]   [Bm]  

Verse
I've been [A] reading books of [G] old
The [A] legends and the [Bm] myths
The [A] testaments they [G] told
The [A] moon and its e- [Bm] clipse
And [A] Superman un- [G] rolls
A [A] suit before he [Bm] lifts
[A] ...But I'm [G] not the kind of [A] person that it [Bm] fits

Pre-Chorus
She said, [A] where'd you wanna [G] go?
How [A] much you wanna [Bm] risk?
I'm not [A] looking for some- [G] body
With some [A] superhuman [Bm] gifts
Some [A] superhe- [G] ro
Some [A] fairytale [Bm] bliss
Just some- [A] thing I can [G] turn to
