GWhen I was bDorn, they looked at me and sCaid What a good boy, what a smart boy, what a strong boy GAnd when youD were born, they looked at yCou and said What a good girl, what a smart girl, what a pretty girl We've got these chains that hang around our necks People want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath Afraid of change, afraid of staying the same When temptation calls, we just look away

Chorus

TGhis name is the hairsDhirt I wear And this hCairshirt is woven from your brown hair TGhis song is the cDross that I bear Bear it wCith me, Bear with me, Bear with me Be with me tonight G D C C I know that it isn't right G D C C But be with me tonight I go to school, I write exams If I pass, If I fail, If I drop out, does anyone give a damn? And if they do, they'll soon forget 'Cause it won't take much for me to show that my life ain't over yet I wake up scared, I wake up strange I wake up wondering if anything in my life is ever gonna change I wake up scared, I wake up strange And everything around me stays the same

Chorus

I couldn't tell you, that I was wrong Chickened out, grabbed a pen and paper, sat down and I wrote this song I couldn't tell you, you were right So instead I looked in the mirror, watched TV, layed awake all night We've got these chains that hang around our necks Perople want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath Afraid of change, afraid of staying the same When temptation calls . . .

Chorus

REPEAT FIRST VERSE
