Intro:  / G - - / C/G - - / x6
 
G                                       D
How does it feel when life doesn't seem real
                   F                            G (1)        C/G (1)
And you're floating about on your own
 G                                 D
Life seems uncertain, so you draw the curtain
      F                                         G
Pretending there's nobody home
                D                     F
Don't theorize, look in your eyes
                        G                          Em
They can't tell lies, though you disguise what you see
A                  D (1)    Dsus4 (1)   D (1)   Dsus2 (1)
   Your reality
 
         G                           D
We needed a savior and by our behavior
       F                                            G (1)     C/G (1)   G (1)     C/G (1)
The ones that were worth it are gone
       G                                    D
But songbirds are talking and runners are walking
      F                                   G
A prodigal son's coming home
                D                    F
Don't theorize, look in his eyes
                             G                     Em
and they won't tell lies, but if he defies what you see
A                      D (1)    Dsus4 (1)   D (1)   Dsus2 (1)
    Here is a key
 
Chorus:
G          Am
Be yourself, why don't you
  D (1)    Dsus4 (1)   D (1)   Dsus2 (1)
Be        your     -    self,     c'mon and
G          Am
Be yourself, why don't you
D (1)    Dsus4 (1)   D (1)   Dsus2 (1)
Be
 
        G                           D
He needed a tutor, so built a computer
          F                                    G (1)        C/G (1)      G (1)        C/G (1)
And programmed himself not to see
         G                                 D
The truth and the lying, the dead or the dying
          F                          G
There is only one way to be
                    D                          F
So don't theorize, look in his eyes
                        G                                 Em
Are they telling lies, the ones that you see on T.V.?
A                                 D (1)    Dsus4 (1)   D (1)   Dsus2 (1)
     So you want to be free?
 
Outro Chorus:
G          Am
Be yourself, why don't you
  D (1)    Dsus4 (1)   D (1)   Dsus2 (1)
Be        your     -    self,     c'mon and
G          Am
Be yourself, why don't you
D (1)    Dsus4 (1)   D (1)   Dsus2 (1)
Be        your     -    self, 
 
Repeat Outro Chorus
 
End on G
