Lying From You


Tune Down 1  2 tone to Eb
Intro :   Em  (4 times)

                Em
when I pretend everything is what I want it to be
           G                                                D
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
                 Em
when I pretend I can forget about the criminal I am
             G                                               D
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can but
   Em                                    
I can‘t pretend this is the way it will stay I‘m just
G                   D
  (Trying to bend the truth)
Em
I can‘t pretend I‘m who you want me to be so I‘m

                   G              D          Em
                * Lying my way from you (no, no turning back now)
                     G                               D             C
                I wanna be pushed aside so let me go 
               (no, no turning back now)
                Am                                  D           Em
                Let me take back my life I‘d rather be all alone 
                (no turning back now)
                    G                              D              C
                Anywhere on my own cause I can see 
                (no, no turning back now)
                       Am
                The very worst part of you (is me) 
                                                        D
                (The very worst part of you is me)

Em                                                 G
I remember what they taught to me remember 
                           D
condescending talk of who I ought to be
Em                                                                   
Remember listening to all of that and this again 
G                                    D
so I pretended up a person who was fitting in
Em
And now you think this person really is me and I‘m 
    G               D
(Trying to bend the truth)
Em
But the more I push the more I‘m pulling away ‘cause I‘m

   Em
** This isn‘t what I wanted to be

I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
