[A]Thoughts, of you and your[C#m] friends
They keep me to[D]gether
You're one step a[E]head
A VERSE 1
Don't leave me behind
You, have you no sh[C#m]ame
I don't want for[D]ever
Just keep it the [E]same

[C]'Cause when I have the [D]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


This can't be [Bm]me, screaming from the [G]stage
Trying to be the [D]one, calling out your [A]name.                     CHORUS
I looked into the [Bm]crystal, I never wished for [G]fame
I only want to be [D]great, I know they're not the [A]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
