[Intro] Chords

B    Ebm  C#  G#m   (pick around these chords, listen to the song and you'll get it)


[Verse]

    B                   Ebm
A song to play when I'm lonely,
C#                   G#m
Win and never play a game again,
B                       Ebm
No one to face when I'm falling,
C#               G#m pm------------                         
Holding tight to dreams that never end



[Chorus]

F#
I'll be you,
   C#
I do,
        G#m
I'll be you,
                     F#     C#   G#m
No one's afraid to be called by another name,
                   F#   C#             G#m mute strum
No one dares to be put down where they don't belong,
G#m                 F#   C#
No where's anyone's reason,
G#m                  F#    C#          B 
Everything dying and leaving,
B pm ------------------------------------------------     F#  G#m
Out with these faults and you make me a baby,
B pm------------------------------------------   F# G#m 
Faking a movement by no ones seeing it,
F#     G#m           F#    G#m
No one always finds peace flung,
F#     G#m          F#    G#m
No one chooses to beat my pride down. 


[Verse]
B                    Ebm
Symbols pierce right through me,
C#                G#m
People fail to be drawn up,
B                      Ebm
Sunlight to fate accumulates,
C#                G#m pm-------------------
Loving pain to be clung to,


[Chorus]
   F#  C#   G#m            
By Luminous bodies,
                 F#    C#         G#m
Only waiting for long signs to be wrong,
              Mute
And true to us,
G#m                F#   C#
Out of place in my own time,
G#m                    F#  C#           B
Drowning thinking that I'm dry,
B pm-----------------------------------------------   F# G#m     
Holding on to facts that will never be proven,
B pm---------------------------------------        F# G#m
Faking an action cuz no one is looking,
F#    G#m      F#   G#m
Hello when I'm crashing, 
F#         G#m               F       G#m              F#     C#
Feeling nothing when my life flashes before my eyes,


[Tag]
              G#m
You should've threw me down,
                            F#     C#  
Is the content so much

(Repeat as need and end on G#m singing the last line with out guitar)
