A           D                          A                         D
   It seems years since you held the baby while I wrecked the bedroom 
A                  D                  A                        D
   You said it was dangerous after Sunday and I knew you loved me 
A              D                      A                       D
   He thinks I just became famous and that's what messed me up but he's wrong 
A                    D                       A               D
How could I possibly know what I want when I was only twenty-one? 
A                         D              A                         D
   There's millions of people to offer advice and say how I should be 
A              D                A          D
   But they're twisted and they will never be 
A      D              A                    D
   Any influence on me but you will always be 
A           D          A          D
   You will always be 

A                   D
   If I treated you mean 
A                  D
   I really didn't mean to 
A                   D            A                    D
But you know how it is and how a pregnancy can change you 

Verse 2
A               D                         A                 D
I see plenty of clothes that I like but I won't go anywhere nice for a while 
      A                  D                         A                   D
All I want to do is just sit here and write it all down and rest for a while 
A               D                 A                  D
I can't bear to be in another city one where you are not 
A                 D                   A                         D
I would return to nothing without you if I'm your girlfriend or not 

A           D
Maybe I was mean 
A                  D
But I really don't think so 
A                D           A     D
You asked if I'm scared and I said so 

Verse 3
A            D  A             D
Everyone can see what's going on 
A                      D                        A                           D
They laugh `cause they know they're untouchable not because what I said was wrong 
A               D            A                  D
Whatever it may bring I will live by my own policies 
       A                  D                 A              D
I will sleep with a clear conscience I will sleep in peace 

A           D
Maybe I was mean 
A                  D
But I really don't think so 
A                 D          A     D
You asked for the truth and I told you 

A                 D
Through their own words 
A              D
They will be exposed 
A             D
They've got a severe case of 
    A             D
The emperor's new clothes 
    A             D 
The emperor's new clothes 
    A             D
The emperor's new clothes
