Verse:
   Cm 
Excuse me for a while,
          Bb                                  F
While I’m wide eyed and so damn caught in the middle
   Cm
I excused you for a while,
          Bb                                  F
While I’m wide eyed and so damn caught in the middle
      Cm      Bb                F
And a lion, a lion, roars would you not listen?
      Cm       Bb               F
If a child, a child cries would you not give them

Chorus:
       Eb
Yeah I might seem so strong
       Bb
Yeah I might speak so long
           F
I’ve never been so wrong

Yeah I might seem so strong
       Bb
Yeah I might speak so long
           F
I’ve never been so wrong

   Cm 
Excuse me for a while,
       Bb                                         F
Turn a blind eye with a stare caught right in the middle
         Cm
Have you wondered for a while
          Bb                                    F
I have a feeling deep down you’re caught in the middle
       Eb     Bb                F
And a lion, a lion, roars would you not listen?
     Cm       Bb                F
If a child, a child cries would you not give them

Chorus:
       Eb
Yeah I might seem so strong

Yeah I might seem so strong
       Bb
Yeah I might speak so long
           F
I’ve never been so wrong
