remember keys
Look at me 
       Ebm              Abm
I will never pass for a perfect bride 
             Gb    Db
Or a perfect daughter 
can it be 
        Ebm                E
I'm not meant to play this part? 
Now I see 
        Gbm              Bm
That if I were truly to be myself 
Dm                        A
I would break my family's heart 

A           Gbm
Who is that girl I see
E       D        Dm
Staring straight back at me
A   E  Gbm   Bm
Why is my reflection
D       G       E
Someone I don't know

A         Gbm
Somehow I cannot hide 
E     D  Dm
Who I am though I tried
A    E    Gbm   Bm
When will my reflection show
Dm         Gbm
Who I am inside
A    E    Gbm   Bm
When will my reflection show
Dm       A
Who I am inside

  1. What’s the best strumming pattern for this?

  2. Impromptu

    I like it!

  3. what’s an easier version to play for beginners?

  4. Ya, +1 is best for higher voices.

  5. NatalieRR

    DaFabEgg try transposing it +1. It’s a great key for a soprano and its pretty easy (only issue is that darn Ebm)

  6. Any suggestions for a girl with a soprano voice…?

    Thanks! ^^

  7. awesomelizard

    I think it’s easiest transposed to -4

  8. didsomebodysaykatie

    I find -4 the easiest (especially for lower voice)

  9. Katrina10123

    These chords are perfect.
