Intro:  
    Gm  Eb  Bb  F
    Gm  Eb  Bb  F

Verse:
Gm                 Eb
This boy wants to play
                       Bb
There's no time left today
                        F
It's a shame 'cause he has to go home
Gm                   Eb
This boy's got to work
                     Bb                        F
Got to sweat just to pay what he gets to get left all alone

Bridge:
Cm                  Eb
Well let's step outside
                Bb
Let's go for a ride
              F
Just for a while
Cm                Eb
No we won't get caught
                             Bb                   F
Well that's what I thought, until we cried

Chorus:
           Bb
I'm still here
         D7
But it hasn't been easy
Gm              Ebm
I'm sure that you had your reasons
Bb           D7
I'm scared for this emotion
     Eb                          Cm
For years I've been holding it down
      Ebm
For years I've been holding it down

Verse:
Gm                   Eb
This girl tries her best everyday
          Bb                               F  
But it's all gone to waste 'cause there's no one around
Gm                 Eb
This girl she can draw she can paint
          Bb
Likes to dance she can skate
         F
Now she don't make a sound

Bridge:
Cm                 Eb
We'll play in the park
                 Bb             F
'Till it's too dark for us to see
Cm                       Eb
Well we'll make our way home
                  Bb
With mud on our clothes
                    F
She won't be pleased

Chorus:
Bb
I'm still here
         D7
But it hasn't been easy
Gm            Ebm
I'm sure that you had your reasons
Bb            D7
I'm scared for this emotion
      Eb                        C
For years I've been holding it down
        Bb            D7  
And I, love to forgive and forget
      Gm         Ebm
So I, try to put all this behind us
       Bb            D7
Just, know that my arms are wide open
Eb                    C             Ebm
The older I get, the more that I know

Ebm
Well it's time to let this go

F
I got to let it go - x4 -

Chorus:
           Bb
I'm still here
         D7
But it hasn't been easy
Gm              Ebm
I'm sure that you had your reasons
Bb           D7
I'm scared for this emotion
     Eb                          Cm
For years I've been holding it down
      Ebm
For years I've been holding it down

Bridge:
        Bb            D7  
And I, love to forgive and forget
      Gm         Ebm
So I, try to put all this behind us
       Bb            D7
Just, know that my arms are wide open
Eb                    C             Ebm
The older I get, the more that I know

Outro:
Ebm                            Bb
Well it's time to let this go
