Your selfish hands

am I your child or

just a charity award?

It’s been 5 years since

And you can’t take back 
              GG chord
what we never had oh
           BmBm chord
I can be manipulated 
AA chord              GG chord
  only so many times

starts to sound like a lie

Put your hands on the ones

that you swore you loved

Don’t you remember 

I’m your baby girl?

How could you throw me

right out of your world?

So young when the pain had begun
       EE chord   
Now forever afraid of being loved

    Personally, I think replacing Bb with A sounds better!

  2. IDK_anymore

    +3 is easier for people who don’t like the ‘e’ chord

  3. sirilhegge

    -2 is the easiest
