Bm           A                 G
I wanted to find somewhere to hide
Bm           A                  G
And I opened up and left those fears inside
Bm               A        G
And I wanted to be anyone else
Bm       A                   G
Only to find that there was no one there but me

Bm            A             G
 But I woke up to the real life
Bm             A                G           F#m G
 And I realized it's not worth running from anymore
Bm               A               G
 When there was nowhere left to hide I found out
      Bm                      A               G
That nothing's real here, but I won't stop now
               F#m     G      Bm
until I find a better part of me

I let those hard days get me down
And all the things I hate got in my way
I could've screamed without a sound
I found myself silenced by those things they say


       G          Bm
That's out there somewhere
        A         G        Bm
And it can't be that far away
  A          G            Bm
That's where I'll find myself
          A   Bm  A  Bm A G
And I'll find my way out
  Bm         A         G
That's where I'll find out
