Gsus2GGsus2
You’d Gsus2think I’d Gshot their Gsus2children
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GFrom the C6no3way that CM7no3they are C6no3talking
CM7no3A7
CM7no3And there’s A7no point in responding
C6no3CM7no3C6no3
Cause it C6no3will not CM7no3make them C6no3stop
CM7no3Gsus2GGsus2
And CM7no3I am Gsus2tired Gof exGsus2plaining
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GAnd of C6no3seeing CM7no3so much C6no3hating
CM7no3A7
CM7no3In the A7very same safe haven
C6no3CM7no3C6no3
Where I C6no3used to CM7no3just see C6no3helping
CM7no3Gsus2GGsus2
CM7no3I’ve been Gsus2drunk and Gskipping Gsus2dinner
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GEating C6no3skin from CM7no3off my C6no3fingers
CM7no3A7
CM7no3And I A7tried to call my brother
C6no3CM7no3C6no3
But he C6no3no CM7no3longer C6no3exists
CM7no3Gsus2GGsus2
CM7no3 keep forGsus2getting Gto reGsus2member
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GThat he C6no3would have CM7no3been much C6no3prouder
CM7no3A7
CM7no3If he A7saw me shake these insults off
C6no3CM7no3C6no3
InC6no3stead of CM7no3getting C6no3bitter....
A7
I am A7bigger on the inside
C6no3
But you C6no3have to come inside to see me
A7
A7Otherwise you’re only hating
C6no3
C6no3Other people’s low-res copies
Gsus2GGsus2G
Gsus2GGsus2G
Gsus2GGsus2
You’d Gsus2think I’d Glearn my Gsus2lesson
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GFrom the C6no3way they CM7no3keep on C6no3testing
CM7no3A7A9A7
CM7no3My A7capaciA9ty for A7pain
A9C6no3CM7no3C6no3CM7no3
And A9my reC6no3solve to CM7no3not get C6no3vioCM7no3lent
Gsus2GGsus2
But Gsus2though my Gskin is Gsus2thickened
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GCertain C6no3spots can CM7no3still be C6no3gotten
CM7no3A7A9A7A9
CM7no3It is A7typiA9cally A7human A9of me
C6no3CM7no3C6no3CM7no3
C6no3Thinking CM7no3I am C6no3diffeCM7no3rent
Gsus2GGsus2GC6no3
To Gsus2friends hooked Gup to Gsus2hospiGtal maC6no3chines
CM7no3C6no3
To CM7no3fix their C6no3cancer
CM7no3A7A9A7A9
CM7no3And there A7is no A9better A7place than A9from this
C6no3CM7no3C6no3
C6no3Waiting CM7no3room to C6no3answer
CM7no3Gsus2GGsus2
CM7no3The French Gsus2kid who Gsent an Gsus2e-mail
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GTo the C6no3website CM7no3late last C6no3night
CM7no3A7A9A7
His CM7no3father A7raped him A9and he’s A7scared
A9C6no3CM7no3C6no3
He A9asked me C6no3How do CM7no3you keep C6no3fighting?
CM7no3Gsus2GGsus2
CM7no3And the Gsus2truth is GI don’t Gsus2know
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
Gthink it’s C6no3funny CM7no3that he C6no3asked me
CM7no3A7A9A7A9
CM7no3Cause I A7don’t feel A9like a A7fighter A9lately
C6no3CM7no3C6no3
C6no3I am CM7no3too C6no3unhappy
A7
You are A7bigger on the inside
C6no3
But your C6no3father cannot see
A7
You need to A7tell someone be strong
C6no3
And somewhere C6no3some dumb rock star truly loves you
Gsus2GGsus2G
Gsus2GGsus2G
Gsus2GGsus2
You’d Gsus2think I’d Gget perGsus2spective
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
GFrom my C6no3view here CM7no3by the C6no3bedside
CM7no3A7A9A7A9C6no3
CM7no3It is A7difficult A9to A7see the A9ones I C6no3love
CM7no3C6no3
So CM7no3close to C6no3death
CM7no3Gsus2GGsus2
All CM7no3their inGsus2fections Gand proGsus2scriptions
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3CM7no3
GAnd the C6no3will to CM7no3live at C6no3all in CM7no3question
A7A9A7A9C6no3
A7Can I A9not acA7cept that A9my own C6no3problems
CM7no3C6no3
CM7no3Are so C6no3small
CM7no3Gsus2GGsus2
You CM7no3took my Gsus2hand when Gyou woke Gsus2up
GC6no3CM7no3C6no3
Ghad been C6no3crying CM7no3in the C6no3darkness
CM7no3A7A9A7A9C6no3
CM7no3We all A7die aA9lone but A7I am A9so, so C6no3glad
CM7no3C6no3
That CM7no3you are C6no3here
CM7no3
You CM7no3whispered:
A7C6no3
"A7We are so much bigger on the C6no3inside,
You, me, everybody
A7C6no3
A7Some day when you’re lying where I C6no3am
You’ll finally get it,
beauty
A7
A7We are so much bigger
C6no3
Than aC6no3nother one can ever see
A7
But A7Trying is the point of life
C6no3
So C6no3don’t stop trying
Promise me."
