C               D          Em
If I don’t say anything it’s wrong
C                D                Em
if I said it, it wouldn’t come out right
C               D          Em
It’s been keeping me up all night
C                D            Em 
Half my life I’ve been told to shut up
C         D          Em
so how am I gonna open up
C               D           Em
wish you could just read my mind
 
Pre-chorus:
C                  D              Em
If I shared all of me would you run away
C               D          Em
if I sugar coated what I had to say
C               D          Em
in poetry would it make you stay
 
 
Chorus:
C             D             Em
I wish I was born Bob Dylan
C               D              Em
Had all the words to speak my feelings
        C                D        
I wish I stood up like Rosa Parks
       Em
and followed my heart
       C
unafraid of the truth
       D
even if I stood alone
C               D          Em
I didn’t know how it was gonna go
       C               D          Em
even if the water was cold I’d take a deep breath
C                 D
and get it off my chest
           Em
and hope for the best
 
Verse 2:
C          D          Em
They say either way you win
C                  D          Em
if it’s mutual why hold it in
C               D          Em
and it’s not meant to be
C                 D               Em
and you tell the truth it will set you free
C                 D              Em 
but all their wisdom doesn’t help me now
C               D          Em
I’m scared and I gotta find out
     C
how to speak my mind
D                             Em
without metaphors and prose and rhymes
            C
and still make you mine
 
Pre chorus 2:
C                   D        Em  
I hope you know what I mean when I’m acting mean
                 C                   D         
cuz I don’t say what I mean when I’m caught in-between
Em
and I’m afraid
C          D        Em  
the real you is eluding me

 
Bridge:
C                  D
And hope you will catch
      Em
me when I fall
C             D
and love me back
          Em
when I show you my all
      C 
Fill in the blanks
              D
if I’m not making sense
   Em
be patient with me
 
Chorus:

D     Am     C        G
I wish I was born Bob Dylan
D           Em           C        G
Had all the words to speak my feelings
D          Em          C        G
I wish I stood up like Rosa Parks
and followed my heart
D      Em       C
unafraid of the truth
D      Em       C
even if I stood alone
D         Em            C
I didn’t know how it was gonna go
D             Em                            C
even if the water was cold I’d take a deep breath
    D          Em
and get it off my chest
           C
and hope for the best
 D             Em
Even if I stood alone
         C
didn’t know how it was gonna go
  D                Em      
gotta get it off my chest
           C
and hope for the best
 D                               Em                               C
if I don’t say anything it’s wrong if I said it it wouldn’t come out right
