  I'll never be what you want.....

Go back and repeat this again for the second verse but after you play part 3 fill
the next bar up until the chorus just by openly strumming.

The chorus is almost exactly the same structure howevever there are no 2 bars in
the beginning that served as the intro and the fill to the second verse. Also,
instead of playing Part 2 after playing Part 1 three times you play Part 4...

-Part 4

eb|---------0-0-0-|---------0-0-0-|
Ab|---------0-0-0-|---------0-0-0-|
Ab|---0-0---0-0-0-|---000---0-0-0-|
Db|---4-4---4-4-4-|---777---7-7-7-|
Ab|---2-2---2-2-2-|---555---5-5-5-|
Db|---------------|---------------|
      Feel.........I belong

-Middle 8
Play this 3 times then on the 4th time only play the first two bars (5/7 chord
and 7/9 chord) and then go back and play Part 3, open strumming to fill the bar
gap to the chrous again.

Lyrics

I am a question to the world 
Not an answer to be heard 
Or a moment, that's held in your arms

And what, do ya think you'd ever say? 
I won't listen anyway 
You don't know me 
And I'll never be what you want me to be

And what, do you think you'd understand? 
I'm a boy, no, I'm a man 
You can't take me, and throw me away

And how, can you learn what's never shown? 
Yeah you stand here on your own 
They don't know me, cause I'm not here

And I want a moment to be real 
Wanna touch things I don't feel 
Wanna hold on, and feel I belong 
And how, can the world want me to change? 
They're the ones that stay the same 
They don't know me, cause I'm not here

And you, see the things they never see 
All you wanted, I could be 
Now you know me, and I'm not afraid

And I, wanna tell you who I am 
Can you help you be a man? 
They can't break me 
As long as I know who I am

They can't tell me who to be 
Cuz I'm not what they see 
Yeah the world is still sleeping 
While I keep on dreaming, for me 
And their words are just whispers and lies 
That I'll never believe

I'm the one, cause I'm still here 
I'm still here
