C                              F
Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
                            F           F               C
It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
               C                        F
Just try your best, try everything you can.
                               F                  F               C
And don't you worry what they tell themselves       when you're away.


CHORUS
         C                                                 F
It just takes some time, little girl you're in the middle of the ride everything,
                F                                         C
Everything will be just fine, everything, everything will be all right (all right)


C                              F
Hey, you know they're all the same.
                             F           F              C
You know you're doing better on your own, so don't buy in.
            C                            F
Live right now.       Yeah, just be yourself.
                            F             F             C
It doesn't matter if it's good enough       for someone else.

(Repeat CHORUS)

C                              F
Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
                            F              F                C
It's only in your head you feel left out      or looked down on.
              C                       F
Just do your best, do everything you can.
                              F               F          C
And don't you worry what the bitter hearts     are gonna say.

(Repeat CHORUS x2)

END on D

I recommend you use these power chords, not the secondary chords.

C – x577xxx (or C2 – xx0230) F – 5776xx (or G2F – 3554xx (or 3200xx)

For the D2 and A2, mute the low E sting with your index finger.
