[Verse 1]
Bmaj7
This girl I know needs some shelter, She don't believe anyone can help her
Bsus4                         Em/B                 Bmaj7
She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage, But you don't want to get involved
                             Em/B
You tell her she can manage, And you can't change the way she feels
                                     A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
But you could put your arms around her

Bmaj7
I know you want to live yourself, But could you forgive yourself
A6sus2          Gmaj7-5
If you left her just the way you found her

[Chorus]
Bmaj7
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow
Bmaj7
Protection
Bsus4                 Em/B
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow

[Verse 2]
Bsus4                 Em/B                                    A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
You're a boy and I'm a girl, But you know you can lean on me
Bmaj7                                                        A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
And I don't have no fear, I'll take on any man here,  Who says that's not the way it
should be

[Chorus]
Bmaj7
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow
Bmaj7
Protection
Bsus4                     Em/B
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow

[Verse 3]
Bsus4                 Em/B                              A6sus2                Gmaj7-5
She's a girl and you're a boy, Sometimes you look so small, look so small
Bmaj7                                                   A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
You've got a baby of your own, When your baby's grown, she'll be the one, To catch you
when you fall

[Chorus]
Bmaj7
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow
Bmaj7
Protection
Bsus4                 Em/B
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow

Bsus4                 Em/B      A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
You're a girl and I'm a boy, You're a girl and I'm a boy,

Bsus4                 Em/B      A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
You're a girl and I'm a boy, You're a girl and I'm a boy,

[Verse 4]
Bmaj7
Sometimes you look so small, need some shelter, Just runnin' round and round, helter skelter
Bsus4
And I've leaned on me, Now you can lean on me
Bmaj7
And that's more than love, that's the way, It should be
Bsus4                            Em/B                           A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
Now I can't change the way you think, But I can put my arms around you
Bsus4                        Em/B                     A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
That's just part of the deal, That's the way I feel

[Chorus]
Bmaj7
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow
Bmaj7
Protection
Bsus4                 Em/B
I stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow
Bmaj7

Bsus4                 Em/B      A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
You're a girl and I'm a boy, You're a girl and I'm a boy,

Bsus4                 Em/B      A6sus2              Gmaj7-5
You're a girl and I'm a boy, You're a girl and I'm a boy,
