Lying From You

Em
When I pretend everything is what I want it to be
C                              D
I look exactly like what you always wanted to see
Em
When I pretend, I can’t forget about the criminal I am
C                               D
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can but
Em
I can’t pretend this is the way it’ll stay I’m just
C            D
(Lying to bend the truth)
Em
I can’t pretend I’m who you want me to be, so I’m

[Chorus]
C      D          E
(Lying my way from you)
E
No no turning back now
C
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)
G
No no turning back now
D                                     E
(Let me take back my life I’d rather be all alone)
E
No turning back now
C
(Anywhere on my own cuz I can see)
G
No no turning back now
D
(The very worst part of you is me)
Em
I remember what they taught to me
C                                           D
Remember condescending talk for who I ought to be
Em
Remember listening to all of that and this again
C                                           D
So I pretended up a person who was fittin’ in
Em
And now you think this person really is me and I’m
C                      D
(Trying to bend the truth)
Em
Cuz the more I push the more I’m pulling away cuz I’m

[Chorus]
C       D        E
(Lying my way from you)
E
No no turning back now
C
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)
G
No no turning back now
D                                          E
(Let me take back my life I’d rather be all alone)
E
No turning back now
C
(Anywhere on my own cuz I can see)
G
No no turning back now
D
(The very worst part of you)
D                         Em
(The very worst part of you is ME)

E
(You)
E
No no turning back now
C
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)
G
No no turning back now
D                                     E
(Let me take back my life I’d rather be all alone)
E
No turning back now
C
(Anywhere on my own cuz I can see)

No no turning back now
D
(The very worst part of you)
D                     Em
(The very worst part of you is me)
