Chorus:
Bm                            Em7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Gbm7                   Dmaj7
They stare at me while I stare at you
Bm                  Em7
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
Gbm7                       Dmaj7
One moment I have you, the next, you are gone
Bm                    Em7
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
Gbm7                         Dmaj7
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Bm                             Em7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Gbm7                   Dmaj7
They stare at me while I crave you

Or so I've been told
Bm                    Em7                    Gbm7

Bm         Em7            Gbm7   Dmaj7
Let's just stop and think before I lose faith

Surely I can't fall, into a game of chess
Bm                        Em7
Around his little finger, that boy has got me curled
Gbm7                         Dmaj7
I try to reach out, but he's in his own world
Bm                          Em7
This boy's got my head tied in knots with all his games
Gbm7                              Dmaj7
I simply want him more because he looks the other way
