THE HYPOTHETICAL SONG by TED BOND. Album: Demo 2003
Strumming pattern is simple, just listen to the song

F Gm
Put forward in solitude
C F
Small words of petition
Dm Gm
It's something creating you
C F
And maybe that something will care

Dm Gm
What useless soliloquy
C F C
Without recognition
Dm Gm
If someone was listening
C F
You wouldn't have offered the prayer

A Dm
But you're waiting for someone else
C F
To validate your existance
A Dm
You're praying for a man to come
Bb F C
Inaugurate your happy and meaningful life

A Dm
Till then you've just that single hope
C F C
To motivate your persistance
Dm C
In holding your own
Bb F
In living alone

A Dm
But what if he never comes
Gm C F
What if your fate is eternal seclusion
Dm Gm
Would it feel good to complain about being a woman
C F
In a mans world
Dm Gm
What if you never fell in love
C F
What if live suddenly wasn't over
Gm Bb
What if you woke up one morning instead
A Dm
In old womens clothing, grey hair on your head
Gm
Wet-nursed and spoon-fed
C F
Alone in your bed

Gm
These thoughts are your contract
C F
Your pact with anxiety
Dm Gm
Same that give you purpose
C F
Old satisfaction, fulfillment and joy

Dm Gm
Self-pity prohibits you
C F C
From finding security
Dm Gm C
You can't be a woman when you're still girl
F
In want of a boy

A Dm
And it's a bitter brand of comedy
C F
That marks your pain and tension
A Dm
When the faith that finds you on your knee
Bb F C
Has not the strenght to pull you to your knee
A Dm
And you're defining fantasy
C F C
Speaks only condescension
Dm C
'Cause you're still alone
Bb F
Still holding your own

A Dm
But what if he never comes
Gm C F
What if your fate is eternal seclusion
Dm Gm
What if your life goes unshared and unwitnessed
C F
What if you grow up to be an old maid
Dm Gm
What if your waiting for life to begin
C F
When really you're waiting for nothing at all
Gm E 
What if you wake up one morning instead
Am A
Alone in your bed

Dm
What if you find a man
G
But you're still alone
C
No longer a virgin
F
But you're still unknown
Bb
He's only met your needs
Gm
With needs of his own
Am
Is that what you've been waiting for

A Dm
What if you find the one
G
Whose strength would see it through
C
Only to find
F
He's just as weak as you
Bb
One lonely child
Gm
Has now become two
Am A Asus4
Is that what you've been praying for

Dm Gm
But what if somebody was trying to tell you
C F
You were the reason that he was a man
Dm
Yeah, but you wouldn't listen
Gm C F
You were to wrapped up in your own defeat
Dm
He suffers your rejection
Gm C F
It's amazing what the mind constitutes and discretes
Gm Bb
And what if life is waiting in front of your nose
A
But you hadn't noticed
Dm
Cause your eyes are closed
Gm
You're debating opposed
C F
To the one who loves you most
