 Thoughts, of you and your friends
 D
They keep me together
 E
You're one step ahead
A VERSE 1
Don't leave me behind
 C#m
You, have you no shame
 D
I don't want forever
 E
Just keep it the same

 'Cause when I have the spotlight
G G/F# Em PRECHORUS 1
I leave it all behi----------nd

C D E? E
And forget that sooner or later all your promises turn to lies

 BmG
This can't be me, screaming from the stage
 DA
Trying to be the one, calling out your name.                     CHORUS
 BmG
I looked into the crystal, I never wished for fame
 DA
I only want to be great, I know they're not the same.

verse2 lyrics:

Stop, help me to my feet
Can't you see that I'm severed
Lead me to my bed
Unfold the blankets
As I drift off to sleep
Will me to heaven
As I will to you
And I hope you know that


A Bm C C#m D E Em G G/F#
