Artist : Jens Lekman
Song : To Know Your Mission

[Intro] : 
   D                 A                 Bm
A Mormon missionary walks through Vasa Allén
           G                F#m        Em
Through a clear-as-crystal Gothenburg morning
 A                                      D     G     G/F#
Removing his suit jacket, loosening his tie
 Em         F#m           G                           D   A
Wiping the sweat from his neck and the sleep from his eyes
      D         A               Bm       A
It's 1997, the last morning of August
        G          F#m                  Em
At the corner of 7-Eleven he hears the broadcast
 A                           D                G    G/F#
Another saint is lost, Lady Di's returned to stardust
    Em             F#m    G     A                  D
He listens to the tragic news, followed by the Top 10 tunes

[Interlude] : D  Bm D  Bm D  Bm D  Bm 

[Verse 1] : 
      D                  A           Bm
Will Smith, Puff Daddy, Gala, Chumbawamba
        G                 F#m                   Em
On the other side of the street he passes Café Java
        F#m           G
Where no one listens to that crap
      F#m                  G
Both coffee and hair dyed raven black
        Em      F#m   G               D   A
All so sure of everything except one question

[Chorus] : 
            D       Bm
What's our mission?
             G    A
What are we here for?
            F#m    Bm
Who are we serving?
            G     A
What can we do?
            D       Bm
What's our mission?
             G    A
What are we here for?
            F#m    Bm
Who are we serving?
            G     A
What can we do?

[Verse 2] : 
    C                    G                       D
He bumps into a teenage boy leaning 'gainst the fence
               C                       G                A
Who takes his headphones off and introduces himself as Jens
 F#m                  G                         F#m          G
Riffling through the Book of Mormon, says it's way too early in the morning
            Em      F#m   G                    D                 A
Instead of talking about religion can we just talk about how it feels

[Chorus] : 
              D       Bm
To know your mission
                     G    A
To know what you're here for
                   F#m  Bm
To know who you're serving
                G     A  
To know what to do?
              D       Bm
To know your mission
                     G    A
To know what you're here for
                   F#m  Bm
To know who you're serving
                G     A  
To know what to do?

[Bridge] : 
           Em
To have a dream
               Em
A GPS in your heart
           Bm
A path to follow
             G
Through the dark
                          D
Well, Jens says, I write songs sometimes
                   A
But they're kinda bad
                    Em
So if that doesn't work out
                                           A
I want to be a social worker just like my dad
                                   D
I just want to listen to people's stories
                      A
Hear what they have to say
                                   Em
My friends say, "Just be a shrink then"
                                                A
But I don't know. I don't think I'll have the grades.
                   D
But in a world of mouths
                 A
I want to be an ear
              Em
If there's a purpose to all this
      A                     D    Bm
Then that's why God put me here

[Post Bridge] : 
                 G    A
I know what I'm here for
                F#m     Bm
I know who I'm serving
             G     A
I'm serving you

[Outro] : D  Bm
          G  A
          F#m  Bm

             G   A
I'm serving you
