Intro:

Em Em Bm Bm G G D D x 2


Em Em Bm Bm
Virginia Woolf and poetry

No one seemed to notice me
D D Em Em
Being young was getting so old
Em Em Bm Bm
Cheap beer and cigarettes

Life was like a movie set
G G D D
And I seemed to be given no role

Pre-Chorus:

Em Em
But in times of trouble
Bm Bm
I can turn to my mother
D D Em Em
And I know that she gon' understand
Em Em
So at age 18
Bm Bm
I cried to my mother
G G D D
And she told me, "young man"

Chorus:
Em Em Bm Bm
"There are moments when you fall to the ground
G G D D
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
Em Em Bm Bm
You don't always have to speak so loud, no
G G D D
Just be as you are
Em Em Bm Bm
Life is not always a comfortable ride
G G D D
Everybody's got scars that they hide
Em Em Bm Bm
And everybody plays the fool sometimes, yeah
G G D D
Just be as you are"


Em Em Bm Bm
They played me on the radio

And everything was changing, so
D D Em Em
I thought I was all the way grown
Em Em Bm Bm
But I can still remember in that cold November
G G D D
When I realized I'm all alone

Pre-Chorus:

Em Em
But in times of trouble
Bm Bm
I can turn to my mother
D D Em Em
And I know that she gon' understand
Em Em
So at age 22
Bm Bm
I cried to my mother
G G D D
And she told me, "young man"

Chorus:
Em Em Bm Bm
"There are moments when you fall to the ground
G G D D
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
Em Em Bm Bm
You don't always have to speak so loud, no
G G D D
Just be as you are
Em Em Bm Bm
It doesn't matter if you become some star
G G D D
Life is better when you open your heart
Em Em Bm Bm
You don't always have to act so hard, no
G G D D
Just be as you are, Just be as you are"

Bridge:

Em Em Bm Bm G G D D x 4

C C Bm Bm
If I'm speaking truthfully

I'm not who I used to be
D D C C
And I know some people might laugh
C C Bm Bm
Cause my music doesn't sound the same

And my head's no longer shaved
D D
I'm worried if I'm on the right path

Pre-Chorus:

Em Em
But in times of trouble
Bm Bm
I can turn to my mother
D D Em Em
And I know that she gon' understand
Em Em
So at age 26
Bm Bm
I spoke to my mother

And she told me, "young man"

Chorus:
Em Em Bm Bm
"There are moments when you fall to the ground
G G D D
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
Em Em Bm Bm
You don't always have to speak so loud, no
Em Em D D
Just be as you are
Em Em Bm Bm
It doesn't matter if you become some star
G G D D
Life is better when you open your heart
Em Em Bm Bm
You don't always have to act so hard, no
D D
Just be as you are, Just be as you are"

Outro:

Em Em Bm Bm G G D D x 4

G G
Be as you are
