A        E            G              A
 I never wanted to be better than my friends
A              E                  G            A
 I just wanted to prove wrong the people in my head
A             E              G          A
 the ones who told me I'd be better off dead
A             E            G             A
 the ones who told me that I would never win
     A           E               G              A
when I delivered newspapers they said I was too slow
     A          E              G            A 
when I was a barista they said I made lousy foam
A                E           G            A
when I worked in retail they said I was a slob
A                 E                   G          A
much too dumb for school and much too lazy for a job

   A E       G         A
so I rode my bike like lightning
    A            E                G               A
and I made cappuccinos that would make the angels sing
     A             E         G                 A
took two showers a day and I dressed up like a princess
         A              E                  G                  A
shook my fist in my own face and said I'll show you who's the best
  A                  E               G                A     
I wrote the kinds of papers teachers hang up on their walls
        A             E              G                  A
I was employee of the month at seven different shopping malls
    A                E                     G             A
and one time playing football I pulled the tendons in my leg
   A                E                 G
to prove that I was tough I hopped on one foot
                    A
and finished up the game

 
  A               E             G                A
I thought if I succeeded I'd be happy and they'd go away
    A                  E                 G               A
but first thing in the morning I'd still wake up and I'd hear them say
        A              E                  G            A
"you're fat, ugly, and stupid, you should really be ashamed
   A             E                    G          A
no one will ever like you, you're not good at anything"

 
    A             E           A
and sometimes I'd rise to the challenge
    A               E                G               A
but other times I'd feel so bad that I could not get out of bed
    A             E               G                 A
and on the days I stayed in bed I sang and sang and sang
 A               E                     G              A
about how crappy I felt, not realizing how many other people would relate
    A              E      G        A
now people send me emails that say thanks for
A          E                  G           A
saying the things they didn't know how to say
        A            E          G            A
and the people in my head still visit me sometimes
         A                  E           G       A
and they bring all of their friends but I don't mind

  A                    E
I play my guitar like lightning
A             E                G                 A
when I sing I like it when you sing too loud and clear
A                 E                   G                   A
different voices, different tones all sayin' "yeah, we're not alone"
A             E               G                    A
I got good at feeling bad and that's why I'm still here
A             E               G                    A
I got good at feeling bad and that's why I'm still here
A             E               G          G         A
I got good at feeling bad and that's why I'm still here
