This version fits people with a deeper voice better than the previous ones. 
Basically it's the same, though.

G                          B
Last week I left a note on Laura's desk
Em                        G7
It said I love you signed anonymous friend
C                              Gmaj7
Turns out she's smarter than I thought she was
C                             G           B
She knows I wrote it, now the whole class does too
   Em                   EmM7
And I'm all alone during couple's skate
Em7                          A
When she skates by with some guy on her arm
     C              D                  C           D
But I know that I'll forget the look of pity in her face
        C            D               C           D
When I'm living in my solar dome on a platform in space

Chorus
                       G           D
Cause it's gonna be the future soon
       Em             C
I won't always be this way
         G                  D
When the things that make me weak and strange get
Am G/B     C     D
engineered away
                 G          D
It's gonna be the future soon
     Em               C
never seen it quite so clear
   Cm               G              Am
And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and
D7sus4        G
it's already here

Verse 2
G                             B
I'll probably be some kind of scientist
Em                        G7
Building inventions in my space lab in space
C                               Gmaj7
I'll end world hunger I'll make dolphins speak
C                                  G          B
Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends
  Em                 EmM7
Perfecting my warrior robot race
Em7                     A
Building them one laser gun at a time
      C             D
I will do my best to teach them
     C                  D
About life and what it's worth
      C               D                 C           D
I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the Earth

Chorus
                       G           D
Cause it's gonna be the future soon
       Em             C
I won't always be this way
         G                  D
When the things that make me weak and strange get
Am G/B     C     D
engineered away
                 G          D
It's gonna be the future soon
     Em               C
never seen it quite so clear
Cm               G              Am
when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and
D7sus4
it's already...

Bridge
D#                    A#
Here on Earth they'll wonder
    D#             G
As I piece by piece replace myself
       D#                      A#
And the steel and circuits will make me whole
Am                     D7sus4 D7
But I'll still feel so alone
Em A+ *
Until Laura calls me home
[ * Instead of A+, JoCo plays A or A7(sus) here when he plays this song live; the A
+ is a little hard to hit accurately. ]

Verse 3
G                             B
I'll see her standing by the monorail
Em                               G7
She'll look the same except for bionic eyes
C                              Gmaj7
She lost the real ones in the robot wars
C                               G        B
I'll say I'm sorry, she'll say it's not your fault
  Em
Or is it?
                  EmM7
And she eyes me suspiciously
Em7                     A
Hearing the whir of the servos inside
        C                 D
She will scream and try to run
           C               D
But there's nowhere she can hide
      C            D                 C         D
When a crazy cyborg wants to make you his robot bride

Chorus
                       G           D
Well it's gonna be the future soon
       Em             C
I won't always be this way
         G                  D
When the things that make me weak and strange get
Am G/B     C     D
engineered away
                 G          D
It's gonna be the future soon
     Em               C
never seen it quite so clear
Cm               G              Am
when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and
D7sus4
it's already here
