Verse 1:
C
We’re all the same, no matter how we’ve grown 
       G
Colors of our skin, defections in our bones
 
There's one thing we share, everyone everywhere
      C
We're all alone
      G    C
We're all alone.
 
Chorus:
C                          G
Everyone is fundamentally lonely
            Am                 Em
Whether you trust science or a church
F
Because we’re scared
        C
Some of us make pairs
      D                   G
And some are still on the search
 

          C                     G
But everyone is fundamentally lonely
   Am             Em
So here’s daily advice 
F
You’re in pain
             C
And everyone feels the same 
D    G     C
So just be nice.

Verse 2:
C
What do you lose, when life’s already the worst 
        G
Leave a better tip, let that guy in line first
 
We’re all lonely, pay for his coffee
     C
Pick up that trash
            G         C
I know it’s not your trash.
 
Interlude: C
 
Chorus:
C                          G
Everyone is fundamentally lonely 
    Am                    Em
Sometimes it comes out as rage 
          F
Screaming in a store
               C
They’re lonely at the core 
      D               G
So be calm when you engage
 

     C                    G
Everyone is fundamentally lonely
    Am                 Em
I’m not saying to sacrifice 
       F
Lend some support
    C
At the airport
          D       G     C
It won’t kill you to be nice.
 
Interlude: C
 
Bridge:
F
Everything is stupid
    C
Success is a projection 
      D
We’re all quietly helpless 
      G
Being nice is a connection
 

F
Blaring your car horn
      C
Won’t make you feel tremendous 
    D
But picking up something someone dropped
               G
Will make this whole thing less horrendous
 
Chorus:
C                          G
Everyone is fundamentally lonely 
     Am                      Em
Even ones pretending they’re not
   F
Be nice today
                       D        A7
It’ll make things just slightly ok 
        C       G           C
On this lonely, little blue dot.
