Verse 1:
               Eb
Hey homecoming queen
           Bb
Why do you lie
               Gm
When somebody's mean?
             F
Where do you hide?

You're always alright?

Look damn good in the dress
                    Gm
Zipping up the mess
                  F
Dancing with your best foot forward

To have to play the part?

If you started showing what's under your skin
            Bb                      Gm

Still walking on eggshells
                   F
When that curtains closed
               Eb
Did your daddy teach you
           F
How to act tough?

Sweep it under the rug

If you lost your composure, said to hell with it all
