there's so much you have to know

             G                 Em
For you will still be here tomorrow,
        D           G
but your dreams may not

Verse 3:
-------

G          Bm
I try to explain? 'cause
        C            Am7
when I do he turns away again
     G               Em
It's always been the same,
        Am7   D
same old story
         G              Bm
From the moment I could talk
         C          Am7
I was ordered to listen
              G          Em
Now there's a way, and I know
      [ D       G ] [ G
that I have to go away
  D ] [ D    C ]   G
I know I have to go
 
   G

Verse 4:
-------

         G              D
It's not time to make a change,
          C                Am7
just sit down and take it slowly
             G                  Em
You're still young, that's your fault,
           Am                  D
there's so much you have to go through
       G            D
Find a girl, settle down,
        C             Am7
if you want, you can marry
        G        Em
Look at me, I am old,
       Am7    D
but I'm happy


Verse 5:
--------

        G               Bm
All the times that I've cried,
        C                Am7
keeping all the things I knew inside
     G              Em
It's hard, but it's harder to 
 Am7     D
ignore it
             G           Bm  
If they were right, I'd agree, 
        C                   Am7
but it's them they know, not me
              G          Em
Now there's a way, and I know 
      [D       G ]   [ G  D ]
that I have to go away
 [D      C    ]  G
I know I have to go
