Verse 1:

G9 G Am7b5 Am7b5*
Butterflies begin from having been a larva

G9 G Am7b5 Am7b5* Eb7
As a child is born from being in a mother's womb

 C#7C7FmG#7Bbm7
But how many times have you wished you were some other   

 C9FF7
 Someone than who you are    

Chorus 1:

 EbD9Gm7Gm6Fm9Fm7Cm7/G
Yet who's to say that if all were uncovered,       

D7 G* Em7 Am7
You will like what you see.

D9/A Gmaj9 Esus4 E Am7*
You can only be you,

D9/A G9 (then play intro once)
as I can only be me.

Verse 2:

G9 G Am7b5 Am7b5*
Flowers cannot bloom until it is their season

G9 G Am7b5 Am7b5* Eb7
As we would not be here unless it was our destiny

 C#7C7FmG#7Bbm7
But how many times have you wished to be in spaces   

 C9FF7
 Time, places than what you were    

Chorus 2:

 EbD9GmBb7
Yet who's to say with unfamiliar faces

Cm7 D7 G* Em7 Am7
You could any more be

D9/A Gmaj9 Esus4 E Am7*
Loving you that you'd see

D9/A Gmaj9 Esus4 E Am7*
You can only be you,

D9/A G9 (then play intro twice)
as I can only be me. Oooh . . .

G*
I can only be me
