C F C Am
You've h ad a rough j ourney;  a hellish long d ay;
C G
There's a f ire in your throat and an ache in your h ead
C F C Am
And you l ong to be b ack in your  own cozy b ed.
Dm G
But the w orld you grew up in has vanished aw ay.
C Am
You're w eary and sick and you're fr ightened by change
C* F C F C G6
When som ething wraps 'round y ou l ike a sw irl  of warm a ir
C* F Am
For there's n o place as comforting, g entle, or str ange
F G6 Csus2 G C
As the m ind of the M id dle-S ized  Bear.
C Am
For the M iddle-Sized Bear is a creature most r are
C G
He'll f eed you on honey and tea in his l air
C F
And you d on't think you trust him, but m aybe you'll dare
G F G C
Have a t alk with the Midd le-S ized B ear.
C F C Am
He's cl umsy, forg etful,  ill-tempered, and  shy;
C G
There's d ust on his spectacles, gray in his f ur;
C F C Am
S ometimes he gr owls when you th ink that he'd  purr,
Dm G
But he h olds you so gently and just lets you c ry.
C Am
He s ays he's not clever, but s ometimes he's wise,
C* F C F C G6
Somet imes he's so sil ent y ou c an't t ell he's th ere
C* F Am
And he qu ietly kisses the t ears from your  eyes
F G6 Csus G C
As you s it with the M id dle-S ized  Bear.
C Am
For the M iddle-Sized Bear is a creature most r are
C G
He'll s ing you a song as he brushes your h air
C F
And they s ay it's a comfort just kn owing he's there
G F G C
As you t alk with the Midd le-S ized B ear.
C F C Am
There's a l ine in his j ournal th at pierces your m ask
C G
Though he s ays at the time that he's probably wr ong;
C F C Am
But he  sums up your  fears in a  few lines of  song,
Dm G
And  answers a question you never would  ask.
C Am
A l etter, a message, a v oice on the phone,
C* F C F C G6
A sc rap of a s ong com ing  out  of thin  air.
C* F Am
Perh aps it's enough to know y ou're not al one
F G6 Csus2 G G
As you t alk with the M id dle-S ized  Bear.
C Am
For the M iddle-Sized Bear is a creature most r are
C G
He kn ows you don't love him, but he doesn't c are
C F
And you th ink you could trust him, if  only you'd dare
G F G C
Have a t alk with the Midd le-S ized B ear.

The last refrain may want to be modified or left off altogether depending on who's singing the song, and perhaps their exact relationship to the Middle-Sized Bear. Your mileage may vary.
