 D -------------------------------------------------

(Verse 1): G#5 B5 E5 C#5 F#5
[G#5]Coming places, collecting careless,
[B5]Sentences say so i write them down,
So i am [E5]more than.
And you shood to, do [C#5]more every[F#5]where.
[G#5]Coming luck, you can surrender,
[B5]Its the only way to you to learn the alpha[E5]bet,
Made up of words you [C#5]never resist to [F#5]quote.
Pre-Chorus: E5 B5 Bb5 G#5
Riff (I Think!)
 
 D -6-8-6-8b-6-8-6-8b-6-------------

[E5]If all this [B5]wisdom [Bb5]is [G#5]true,
[E5]Then i say it can really have [B5]come [Bb5]from [G#5]you.
(Chorus)
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[B5]There must be something [Bb5]more [G#5]than,
[Bb5]If i'm just a [G#5]thought, [B5]i'm not.
(Piano part)
 
 B ---------12-
 G -8-10-11----

[G#5]Faster than your destination,
[B5]Knowing where you really are,
Its what you always [E5]do,
Or is it when you [C#5]can,[F#5]
[G#5]Happiness didn't happen,
[B5]Sooner than the sound,
that calls to [E5]most of them mistakes,
that I [C#5]taught [F#5]you.
(Pre-Chorus)
[E5]If all this [B5]wisdom [Bb5]is [G#5]true,
[E5]Then i say it can really have [B5]come [Bb5]from [G#5]you.
(Chorus)
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[B5]There must be something [Bb5]more [G#5]than,
[Bb5]i am what i [G#5]am not.
[B5]If theres something [Bb5]more [G#5]than.
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[B5]There must be something [Bb5]more [G#5]than,
[Bb5]If i am what i[G#5] am [C#5]not.[B5]

[Bb5]i am what i [G#5]am not.
[B5]If theres something [Bb5]more [G#5]than.
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[Bb5]I am what i am [G#5]not,
[B5]There must be something [Bb5]more [G#5]than,
[Bb5]If i am what i[G#5] am [C#5]not.[B5]
