What You Are  Jewel

Might not be 100% correct, but I tried
[D] [-] [Em9]  
I'm driving around town
Kinda bored with the windows rolled down
See a girl on a bus stop bench
Dressed to draw attention
Hoping everyone will stare
If she don't stand out she thinks she'll disappear
I wish I could hold her, tell her, show her
[G] [A]  
What she wants is already there
A star is a star
It doesn't have to try to shine
Water will fall
A bird just knows how to to fly
You don't have to tell a flower how to bloom
Or light how to fill up a room
You already are what you are and what you are
[D] [-] [Em9] [-] [D]  
Is beautiful
[D]Heard a story the other day
[Em9]Took place at the local VA
[D]A father talking to his dying son
[G]This was his conversation
[D]It's not supposed to be like this
[Em9]You can't go first I can't handle it
[D/C#]The boy said Dad now don't you cry,
[G]Remember when I was a child what you used to [A]tell me when I'd ask why?
( Tab from: )
(You'd say) G[D]ravity is gravity
[Em9]It doesn't try to pull you down
[D/C#]Stone is stone
[G]It can't help but hold its ground
[D]The wind just blows, though you can't see
[D/C#]It's everywhere like I'll always be
[Em]You already are what you are
And what you are i[D]s [-]st[Em9]rong[-] e[D]nough
Look in the mirror
Now that's another story to tell
I give love to others
But I give myself hell
I have to tell myself
In every seed there's a perfect plan
Everything I hoped to be
I already am
[D]A flower is a flower
[Em9]It doesn't have to try to bloom
[D/C#]And light is light
[G]Just knows how to fill a room
[D]And dark is dark
[Em9]So the stars have a place to shine
[D/C#]The tide goes out
[G]So it can come back another time
[D]Goodbye makes a love so sweet
[D/C#]And love is love so it can teach us
[Em]We already are what we are
And what we are [D]is[-] b[Em9]eaut[-]if[D]ul
[D]And strong enough
[D]And good enough
[D]An[-]d [Em9]brig[-]ht[D] enough
