G  A  Bm

[Verse 1]

             A             G          A             Bm

I’ve been reading books of old, the legends and the myths

     A           G          A           Bm

Achilles and his gold, Hercules and his gifts

   A           G           A            Bm     

Spiderman’s control and Batman with his fists

A           G                  A         Bm         

And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list

[Pre-Chorus 1]

                A           G            A         Bm

She said, where’d you wanna go, how much you wanna risk?

           A            G                A        Bm

I’m not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts

       A      G         A      Bm

Some superhero, some fairytale bliss

         A           G              A        Bm

Just something I can turn to, somebody I can kiss

[Chorus 1]

           A              G                   A           Bm

I want something just like this, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

             A       G             A           Bm

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

              A              G                   A           Bm

Oh I want something just like this, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo       

             A       G             A           Bm

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

              A              G     A  Bm   A  G  A  Bm

Oh I want something just like this

           A              G     A  Bm   A  G  A  Bm

I want something just like this

[Verse 2]

             A             G          A             Bm

I’ve been reading books of old, the legends and the myths

       A            G              A        Bm

The testaments they told, the moon and its eclipse

      A        G             A         Bm    

And Superman unrolls, a suit before he lifts

A         G                  A           Bm

  But I’m not the kind of person that it fits

[Pre-Chorus 2]

                A           G            A         Bm

She said, where’d you wanna go, how much you wanna risk?

           A            G                A        Bm

I’m not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts

       A      G         A      Bm

Some superhero, some fairytale bliss

         A           G              A        Bm

Just something I can turn to, somebody I can miss

[Chorus 2]

           A              G     A  Bm   A  G  A  Bm

I want something just like this

           A              G     A  Bm   A  G  A  Bm

I want something just like this

              A              G                   A           Bm

Oh I want something just like this, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

             A       G             A              Bm

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-oo

              A              G                   A           Bm

Oh I want something just like this, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo       

             A       G             A              Bm

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-oo

[Pre-Chorus 3]

      D/F#        G            A         Bm

Where’d you wanna go, how much you wanna risk?

           D/F#         G                A        Bm

I’m not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts

       D/F#   G         A      Bm

Some superhero, some fairytale bliss

         D/F#        G              A        Bm

Just something I can turn to, somebody I can kiss

           D/F#          (G)      

I want something just like this
