Chorus:
Ebm                            Abm7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Bbm7                   Gbmaj7
They stare at me while I stare at you
Ebm                  Abm7
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
Bbm7                       Gbmaj7
One moment I have you, the next, you are gone
Ebm                    Abm7
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
Bbm7                         Gbmaj7
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Ebm                             Abm7
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
Bbm7                   Gbmaj7
They stare at me while I crave you

Dripping in gold
Ebm                  Abm7         Bbm7
A wave of heads did turn, or so I've been told
Gbmaj7
Or so I've been told
Ebm                    Abm7                    Bbm7

Bridge:
Ebm         Abm7            Bbm7   Gbmaj7
Let's just stop and think before I lose faith
Ebm     Abm7           Bbm7   Gbmaj7
Surely I can't fall, into a game of chess
Ebm                        Abm7
Around his little finger, that boy has got me curled
Bbm7                         Gbmaj7
I try to reach out, but he's in his own world
Ebm                          Abm7
This boy's got my head tied in knots with all his games
Bbm7                              Gbmaj7
I simply want him more because he looks the other way
