remember keys
All my life,
            G         A
I've been fighting a war
          Bm     G            A
I can't talk to you or your friends
It's not only you,
     G            A             Bm
My heart jumps around when I'm eluded to
              G     A
This will not do 
             Bm          G      A 
Cause I was raised up to be admired,
to be noticed
      G               A
But when you're withdrawn,
it's the closest thing  
       G           A          Bm
to assault when all eyes are on you
              G    A
This will not do

Interlude -x4-: Bm  Bm  G  A

I'm faking glory
         G             A
Lick my lips toss my hair
And send a smile over
         G           A
And the story brand new
I can take it from here,
      G        A       Bm    G   A
I'll find my own bravado

Chorus -x2-:
It's a switch flipped

It's a pill tipped back
It's a moon eclipsed, oh
Bm                                                              A
And I can tell that, when the lights come on I'll be ready for this
It's in your bloodstream
A collision of atoms that happens before your eyes
Bm                                                      A
It's a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size
I was frightened of every little thing
                   Em     Bm
that I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up, and laugh at me,
But I learned not to hold the quiet of the room
               Em       Bm
And the one around to find me out
I want the applause, the approval, the things that make me go, oh
