[Intro]
Dsus        Csus2  G/D    Bb  Cadd9 Csus2
      OoOoOoooooooOooo
Dsus        Csus2  G/D    Bb  Cadd9 Csus2
      IiiiiIiiiiIiiiii

[Verse 1]
Dsus2        Csus2  
I,   I have been shown
     G/D    
How to live on my own
Bb            Cadd9 Csus2
One lonely soul

[Verse 2]
              Dsus2
And I will be free
          Csus2
And I will be loved
         G/D
And I'll show myself
            Bb        Cadd9 Csus2
I'm not quite done just yet

[Verse 3]     
                Dsus2
Cause me and my friends
       Csus2
We travel around
         G/D
From the highs and the lows
          Bb           Cadd9 Csus2
From the seas to the grounds

[Verse 4]
                     Dsus2
And I was just awake wondering
               Csus2
When my time will come
         G/D
When I'll break from these chains
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
And I push you off

[Chorus]
                   Dsus2
Cause you've been holding me 
                Csus2
down holding me down,
            G/D
you've been holding me down 
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
holding me down
                   Dsus2
Cause you've been holding me 
                Csus2
down holding me down,
            G/D
you've been holding me down 
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
holding me down

[Verse 5]
    Dsus2        Csus2  
And I   I have been moving
        G/D
oh from east and west 
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
across continents

[Verse 6]
    Dsus2         Csus2  
And I     I have been learning
        G/D
if you believe in yourself
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
then you'll see the way

[Verse 7]
              Dsus2
And I will be free
     Csus2
I'll break down the walls
        G/D
I will climb when I crawl
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
I will start when I stop

[Verse 8]
            Dsus2
I was just wondering
       Csus2
when my hand will rise
        G/D
when I break from these chains
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
and I push you aside

[Chorus]
                   Dsus2
Cause you've been holding me 
                Csus2
down holding me down,
            G/D
you've been holding me down 
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
holding me down
                   Dsus2
Cause you've been holding me 
                Csus2
down holding me down,
            G/D
you've been holding me down 
       Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
holding me down

[Outro]
            Dsus2
you've been holding me down
Csus2 
holding me down,
G/D
holding me down
 Bb          Cadd9 Csus2
holding me down
Dsus2            Csus2     
And I can feel you
        G/D
I don't need you no
Bb            Cadd9 
you're  holding me 
      Dsus2
down
