Eb         Ab      Bb            Eb
 Yes it's true that I once went through life
      Eb              Ab            Bb         Eb
 As a guy who always had to rhyme life with strife
                Ab                    Bb
 Yes, I've been burned and I've been spurned
                Eb                Cm
 And through it all, yes, I have learned
              Ab                 Ab
 That love is not about whether you get stabbed
         Ab                    Bb
 But how slow the knife gets turned


        Ab                     Ab
 But my friends I've found an animal
     Ab                 Ab
 Who doesn't feel this pain
        Ab               Ab
 And my life is so much better 
          Ab              Bb
 Now that I can feel the same


             Eb              Ab
 Because you can't hate the night
           Bb
 If you've lived your whole life without light
         Eb              Ab
 And you can't hate the dish
           Bb
 If you've only ever eaten fish
         Eb          Ab
 And you can't feel alone
         Bb               Eb
 If it's all you've ever known


          Ab              Ab
 Yeah the deep sea anglerfish
        Ab            Ab
 Has no reason to be happy
        Bb               Eb
 But it has no frikkin' idea
 Ab            Eb
 What else to be


 Eb                     Ab
 The deep sea dwelling anglerfish
       Bb             Eb
 Never has to find a mate
          Eb            Ab
 They are always there together
           Bb             Ab
 When it's time to procreate


     Ab                 Bb
 See one dark night, a young male
           Eb             Cm
 Bites the female on her side
          Ab           Ab
 And then slowly he becomes
            Ab          Bb
 a sperm-producing parasite


        Ab             Ab
 And if we can say he lives at all
    Ab               Ab
 He lives until she dies
       Ab               Ab
 And until that day he literally
 Ab                Bb
 Never leaves her side


             Eb              Ab
 Yeah you can't hate the night
           Bb
 If you've lived your whole life without light
         Eb              Ab
 And you can't hate the dish
           Bb
 If you've only ever eaten fish
         Eb          Ab
 And you can't feel alone
         Bb               Eb
 If it's all you've ever known


          Ab              Ab
 Yeah the deep sea anglerfish
        Ab            Ab
 Has no reason to be happy
        Bb               Eb
 But it has no frikkin' idea
 Ab            Eb
 What else to be


     Eb                   Ab
 For years this rule has kept me
        Bb        Eb
 Out of hopeless despair
     Eb             Ab
 You simply do not feel
         Bb      Eb
 What is always there


   Ab               Bb
 I ask my brain to entertain
      Eb           Cm
 That pain is the same
           Ab               Ab
 That if I feel it all the time
         Ab              Bb
 Can you really call it pain


   Ab              Ab
 I don't have any friends
       Ab              Ab
 And I don't have any hair
     Ab                Ab
 But neither does the anglerfish
     Ab           Bb
 And she doesn't care


             Eb              Ab
 Because you can't hate the night
           Bb
 If you've lived your whole life without light
         Eb              Ab
 And you can't hate the dish
           Bb
 If you've only ever eaten fish
         Eb          Ab
 And you can't feel alone
         Bb               Eb
 If it's all you've ever known


          Ab              Ab
 Yeah the deep sea anglerfish
        Ab            Ab
 Has no reason to be happy
        Bb               Eb
 But she has no frikkin' idea
 Ab            Eb
 What else to be
