Chorus:
Bbm                            Ebm7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Fm7                   Dbmaj7
They stare at me while I stare at you
Bbm                  Ebm7
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
Fm7                       Dbmaj7
One moment I have you, the next, you are gone
Bbm                    Ebm7
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
Fm7                         Dbmaj7
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Bbm                             Ebm7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Fm7                   Dbmaj7
They stare at me while I crave you

Dbmaj7
Or so I've been told
Bbm                    Ebm7                    Fm7

Let's just stop and think before I lose faith

Surely I can't fall, into a game of chess

Around his little finger, that boy has got me curled
Fm7                         Dbmaj7
I try to reach out, but he's in his own world

I simply want him more because he looks the other way
