Verse 1 - Lead drops out and Rhythm continues to play Dm A C Em (on a soft setting) for 
measures each chord.

Dm                          A
   Mascara teardrops in the bathroom sink
                              C
You're so much more beautiful than you think
                                    Em
You shut your eyes and take another drink (to make it all go away)


Instrumental 1 - Transition into 4/4 time. 1 Rhythm stays soft, playing each chord for 
1 measure. Lead plays eighth notes.

(Dm)             (A)              (C)              (Em)

Verse 2 - Back into 3/4 time. Lead drops out and Rhythm plays D A C E powerchords (on a 
setting) for 4 measures each chord. Eighth note downward strokes.

D                     A
    Living alone in a world of pain
                            C
With mountains of guilt and rivers of shame
                         E
Life always seems like a losing game (and I don't wanna play)


Instrumental 2 - Transition into 4/4 time again. Rhythm plays powerchords as sixteenth notes.

Straight into the Chorus (back into 3/4 time), same as the beginning.
Dm                          A
     So take a good look at me
                       C
Tell me, why can't you see
                Em                     Dm
God's perfect creation? (Why isn't it me?)


Verse 3 - Lead backs out. For the first half, Rhythm Guitar plays softly. At the C, full 
comes back in, Lead and everything just the same as the last half of the Chorus.

Dm                                         A
      Stop tryin' to impress them with the things you do
                                      C
Just forget about them.. LIKE THEY FORGOT ABOUT YOU!
                        Em
I know somebody who can pull you through (your new life starts today)

Chorus


Ending - The Chorus once more, unsung.


Outro - Rhythm Guitar plays very softly. End it smoothly, with class.

Dm                      A
    Take a good look at me....
