Lyrics By Nick Hornby

F (9 fr.) C

G                F (9 fr.)      C   G
They checked into the hospital new year's eve
             F (9 fr.)          C   G
Nothing to be done about that
             F (9 fr.)         C   G
Rainbows, daffodils; she's not naïve
             F (9 fr.)         C   G
Symbolism's all crap

                   F (9 fr.)
There's a big picture window in their room
	      C	         G
On the ward, with a view of a parliament hill
    Dm7(4)      F (9 fr.)   C
But the view offers more joy than they can afford
G
When there's this much pain to kill

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F (9 fr.)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E       F (9 fr.)       C  G   F(9)   C   G
Got no place in days like these

            F (9 fr.)         C
At dusk the darkness surrenders to color
    G
As the fireworks streak the sky
     F (9 fr.)         C
And their window gives them the prettiest picture
    G
Their useless luck makes her wanna cry
F (9 fr.)          C
Then it turns midnight, the shitty old year spent
  G
Another Mum gives her some sparkling wine
    F (9 fr.)     C
And she nearly gives in to the moment
      G
But she'll still be sick in 2009

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F (9 fr.)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E       F (9 fr.)	     C   G
Got no place in days like these

Dm7(4)  G  Em  F (repeat 3 times)

Am7(4)          C/G
Just as she's thinking of pulling the blind down
F(9)/A             Csus4
A rocket bursts in front of her eyes
Dm7(4)
The city lit up like a crown on London
    C         F (2 fr.)     F6
And she tries and fails to stop spirits rise

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F (9 fr.)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E       F (9 fr.)
Got no place in days like these

Dm7(4)
You know what hope is?
G
Hope is a bastard
C/E
Hope is a liar
F (9 fr.)
A cheat and a tease
Dm7(4)
Hope comes near you?
G
Kick it's backside
C/E       F (9 fr.)	      C/E  G   F(9)   C /E   G
Got no place in days like these
