        BmBm chord
All my life,
            GG chord         AA chord
I've been fighting a war
          BmBm chord     GG chord            AA chord
I can't talk to you or your friends
          BmBm chord
It's not only you,
     GG chord            AA chord             BmBm chord
My heart jumps around when I'm eluded to
              GG chord     AA chord
This will not do 
             BmBm chord          GG chord      AA chord 
Cause I was raised up to be admired,
        BmBm chord  
to be noticed
      GG chord               AA chord
But when you're withdrawn,
          BmBm chord
it's the closest thing  
       GG chord           AA chord          BmBm chord
to assault when all eyes are on you
              GG chord    AA chord
This will not do
Interlude -x4-: BmBm chord  BmBm chord  GG chord  AA chord
             BmBm chord
I'm faking glory
         GG chord             AA chord
Lick my lips toss my hair
            BmBm chord
And send a smile over
         GG chord           AA chord
And the story brand new
       BmBm chord
I can take it from here,
      GG chord        AA chord       BmBm chord    GG chord   AA chord
I'll find my own bravado
Chorus -x2-:
DD chord               
It's a switch flipped
It's a pill tipped back
                 EmEm chord
It's a moon eclipsed, oh
BmBm chord                                                              AA chord
And I can tell that, when the lights come on I'll be ready for this
DD chord
It's in your bloodstream
                                   EmEm chord
AA chord collision of atoms that happens before your eyes
BmBm chord                                                      AA chord
It's a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size
DD chord
I was frightened of every little thing
                   EmEm chord     BmBm chord
that I thought was out to get me down
                            AA chord
To trip me up, and laugh at me,
    DD chord
But I learned not to hold the quiet of the room
               EmEm chord       BmBm chord
And the one around to find me out
I want the applause, the approval, the things that make me go, oh
