IntrO: E - Em - Am

E                              Em 
She was done before the start, always mending broken hearts
E                            Em  
Making others miserable not knowing who she's hurting
Am                              G   
Father said, "This day will be, one for everyone to see"
E                                 Em
Is it true you'll follow suit and have you learned a thing?

G                        E                                  Em
It's just a selfish way to go, it's safe to say she'll never know
Am                       Em                         G
For every person there's a whole life story waiting to be told
G                        E                             Em   
When she is happy it's OK, but then these people start to fade
E                                   Em
Then we'll just watch her self-destruct as she gets old

E                               Em
She put up defensive shields, to walk through all of life's minefields
E                               Em
All defined by make-up and a car behind she's hiding
Am                           G
"Father do you have to go, left me questions I dont know"
E                             Em
Any answers or even close the life time lie was true

G                              E             Em
She's gonna move on with her life, and take it one heart at a time
Am                                Em                           
And watch the little girl inside her wait behind as she goes on
G                              E                        Em
But with this black heart she decides, who she'll take in and shove aside
Am                               Em
Until the day she sees that everyone is gone

C                                       D
Getting used to people leaving, thinking true love is deceiving
Am                         E
Soon she'll know how lonely it can be

G                            E                    Em
Now was it really worth the pain? A couple pills make her feel sane
Am                          Em                       G
While she lives out the story written for the part she is to play
G                            E                 Em
With so much shame for her to hide, there's no more dignity, no pride
Am                                 Em
Then there will only be dark in her light of day
