Verse 1:  
                            C  
I've been reading books of old
    D               Em
The legends and the myths
D                C
Achilles and his gold
D                Em
Hercules and his gifts
D              C
Spiderman's control
    D                 Em
And Batman with his fists
    D       C           D                Em
And clearly I don't see myself upon that list

Pre-Chorus: 
          D                 C
She said Where'd you wanna go
    D              Em
How much you wanna risk
        D           C
I'm not looking for somebody
          D          Em
With some superhuman gifts
    D       C
Some superhero
     D         Em
Some fairytale bliss
     D               C
Just something I can turn to
    D          Em
Somebody I can kiss

Chorus: 
         D                  C
I want something just like this
     D                  Em
Doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo
    D                C
Doo-doo-doo doo-doo
       D                 Em
Doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo
         D                  C
I want something just like this
     D                  Em
Doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo
    D                C
Doo-doo-doo doo-doo
       D                 Em
Doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo
            D                  C
Oh I want something just like this
D  Em  D C  D  Em               D                  C
Oh I want something just like this

Verse 2: 
                            C  
I've been reading books of old
    D               Em
The legends and the myths
    D                C
The testaments they told
    D              Em 
The moon and its eclipse
    D           C
And Superman unrolls
   D             Em 
D suit before he lifts
D         C               D              Em
But I'm not the kind of person that it fits

Pre-Chorus: 
          D                 C
She said Where'd you wanna go
    D              Em
How much you wanna risk
        D           C
I'm not looking for somebody
          D          Em
With some superhuman gifts
    D       C
Some superhero
     D         Em
Some fairytale bliss
     D               C
Just something I can turn to
    D          Em
Somebody I can kiss
            D                  C
Oh I want something just like this
D  Em  D C  D  Em               D                  C
Oh I want something just like this

Interlude:
