Chorus:
Am                            Dm7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Em7                   Cmaj7
They stare at me while I stare at you
Am                  Dm7
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
Em7                       Cmaj7
One moment I have you, the next, you are gone
Am                    Dm7
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
Em7                         Cmaj7
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Am                             Dm7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Em7                   Cmaj7
They stare at me while I crave you
