F
It's not simple to say
C
Most days I don't recognize me
      Dm
These shoes and this apron

This place and its patrons
     Bb
Have taken more than I gave them


F
It's not easy to know
     C
I'm not anything that I used to be oh
          Dm
It's true I was never attention's sweet center
  Bb
I still remember that girl


F
She's imperfect but she tries
       C
She is good but she lies
      Dm
She is hard on herself
     Bb
She is broken but won't ask for help
       F
She is messy but she's kind
       C
She is lonely most of the time
       Dm
She is all of this mixed up and
                     Bb
baked in a beautiful pie
                               F
She is gone but she used to be mine


F
It's not what I asked for
         C
Sometimes life slips in through a backdoor
    Dm                                                 Bb
and carves out a person and makes you believe it's all true

Now I've got you
F
You're not what I asked for
       A7
If I'm honest I know I would give it all back
      Dm
for a chance to start over
                     Bb
Rewrite an ending or two

for the girl that I knew


         F
Who'd be reckless just enough
          C 
Who'd get hurt but who learns how to tough it up
           Dm
When she's bruised and gets used
                   Bb
By a man who can't love

Then she'll get stuck
       F
And be scared of the life that's inside her
          A7
Growing stronger each day

Til it finally reminds her
     Dm
That fight just a little
                              Bb
To bring back the fire in her eyes
                                   F        A7
That's been gone but it used to be mine
       Dm          C
Used to mine


F
She is messy but she's kind
       C
She is lonely most of the time
       Dm
She is all of this mixed up
               C          Bb
and baked in a beautiful pie
                               F
She is gone but she used to be mine
