Verse:
Am           G
Grew up in a small town
C                       F
And when the rain would fall down
Am       G            F
I’d just stare out my window
Am               G
Dreaming of what could be
C                 F
And if I’d end up happy
Am G     C
I would pray

Am             G
Trying hard to reach out
C                   F
But when I tried to speak out
Am        G            F
Felt like no one could hear me
Am           G
Wanted to belong here
C                     F
But something felt so wrong here
Am G   C
So I’d pray
Am      G       D   F
I could break away

Chorus:
C                             G
I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly.
Am                    F
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky.
C
Make a wish, take a chance,
G                  Am    G F
Make a change, and break away.
C                       G
Out of the darkness and into the sun.
Am                     F
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love.
C
I’ll take a risk, take a chance,
G                  Am    G C
Make a change, and break away

Because Of You

G             D            Em                        D
I will not make the same mistakes that you did
G            D
I will not let myself
Em                                 D
Cause my heart so much misery
G          D        Em
I will not break the way you did,
C
You fell so hard
G                      D
I’ve learned the hard way
C                    D
To never let it get that far

G
Because of you
Em                                D
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
G
Because of you
Em                        D
I learned to play on the safe side so I don’t get hurt
G
Because of you
C                D                                Em
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
G
Because of you
D
I am afraid

G             D
I lose my way
Em                D                       G
And it’s not too long before you point it out
D
I cannot cry
Em                                D                        G
Because you know that’s weakness in your eyes
D
I’m forced to fake
Em                  D                  G
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
D
My heart can’t possibly break
C                          D
When it wasn’t even whole to start with

G
Because of you
Em                                D
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
G
Because of you
Em                        D
I learned to play on the safe side so I don’t get hurt
G
Because of you
C             D                               Em
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
G
Because of you
D
I am afraid

G
I watched you die
D                               A
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
G
I was so young
Em                           A
You should have known better than to lean on me
G                     D
You never thought of anyone else
A
You just saw your pain
G                               C
And now I cry in the middle of the night
Bb      B      C#
For the same damn thing

G
Because of you
Em                                D
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
G
Because of you
C                        D
I learned to play on the safe side so I don’t get hurt

Because of you
Em              D
I try my hardest just to forget everything
G
Because of you
Em                      D
I don’t know how to let anyone else in

I’m ashamed of my life because it’s empty

Because of you

I am afraid
