Jonathan Coulton chords for The future soon

Guitar chords with lyrics

This version fits people with a deeper voice better than the previous ones.
Basically it's the same, though.

A chord diagramBB
Last week I left a note on Laura's desk
A chord diagramG7G7
It said I love you signed anonymous friend
A chord diagramGmaj7Gmaj7
Turns out she's smarter than I thought she was
A chord diagramBB
She knows I wrote it, now the whole class does too
   A chord diagramE minorEm                   EmM7
And I'm all alone during couple's skate
A chord diagramA augmentedA
When she skates by with some guy on her arm
     A chord diagramD MajorD
But I know that I'll forget the look of pity in her face
        A chord diagramD MajorD
When I'm living in my solar dome on a platform in space


Chorus
                       A chord diagramD MajorD
Cause it's gonna be the future soon
       A chord diagramC majorC
I won't always be this way
         A chord diagramD MajorD
When the things that make me weak and strange get
A chord diagramD MajorD
engineered away
                 A chord diagramD MajorD
It's gonna be the future soon
     A chord diagramC majorC
never seen it quite so clear
   A chord diagramA minorAm
And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and
A chord diagramG+G
it's already here

Verse 2
A chord diagramBB
I'll probably be some kind of scientist
A chord diagramG7G7
Building inventions in my space lab in space
A chord diagramGmaj7Gmaj7
I'll end world hunger I'll make dolphins speak
A chord diagramBB
Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends
  A chord diagramE minorEm                 EmM7
Perfecting my warrior robot race
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Building them one laser gun at a time
      A chord diagramD MajorD
I will do my best to teach them
     A chord diagramD MajorD
About life and what it's worth
      A chord diagramD MajorD
I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the Earth

Chorus
                       A chord diagramD MajorD
Cause it's gonna be the future soon
       A chord diagramC majorC
I won't always be this way
         A chord diagramD MajorD
When the things that make me weak and strange get
A chord diagramD MajorD
engineered away
                 A chord diagramD MajorD
It's gonna be the future soon
     A chord diagramC majorC
never seen it quite so clear
A chord diagramA minorAm
when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and
A chord diagramD7sus4D7sus4
it's already...


Bridge
A chord diagramA#A#
Here on Earth they'll wonder
    A chord diagramG+G
As I piece by piece replace myself
       A chord diagramA#A#
And the steel and circuits will make me whole
A chord diagramD7D7
But I'll still feel so alone
A chord diagramA augmentedA+ *
Until Laura calls me home
[ * Instead of A chord diagramA augmentedA+, JoCo plays A chord diagramA augmentedA or A7(sus) here when he plays this song live; the A chord diagramA augmentedA
+ is a little hard to hit accurately. ]


Verse 3
A chord diagramBB
I'll see her standing by the monorail
A chord diagramG7G7
She'll look the same except for bionic eyes
A chord diagramGmaj7Gmaj7
She lost the real ones in the robot wars
A chord diagramBB
I'll say I'm sorry, she'll say it's not your fault
  A chord diagramE minorEm
Or is it?
                  EmM7
And she eyes me suspiciously
A chord diagramA augmentedA
Hearing the whir of the servos inside
        A chord diagramD MajorD
She will scream and try to run
           A chord diagramD MajorD
But there's nowhere she can hide
      A chord diagramD MajorD
When a crazy cyborg wants to make you his robot bride


Chorus
                       A chord diagramD MajorD
Well it's gonna be the future soon
       A chord diagramC majorC
I won't always be this way
         A chord diagramD MajorD
When the things that make me weak and strange get
A chord diagramD MajorD
engineered away
                 A chord diagramD MajorD
It's gonna be the future soon
     A chord diagramC majorC
never seen it quite so clear
A chord diagramA minorAm
when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and
A chord diagramD7sus4D7sus4
