How To Play

CHORUS
      C                Bb
When a girl can't be herself no more
             F                  G
I just wanna cry, I just wanna cry for the world
        C                Bb
When a girl can't be herself no more
             F                  G
I just wanna cry, I just wanna cry for the world (Repeat)
 
 
VERSE 1
Cm                      Bb            Gm   Cm
In the morning from the minute that I wake up
                        Bb              Gm   Cm
What if I don't want to put on all that make up?
                    Bb            Gm  Cm
Who says I must conceal what I'm made of?
                              Bb         Gm
Maybe all this Maybelline is covering my self-esteem
Cm                  Bb                Gm Cm
Whose job is it to straighten out my curves?
                       Bb              Gm Cm
I'm so tired of that image, that's my word
                      Bb                 Gm   Cm
What if today I don't feel like putting heels on?
                               Bb           Gm    Cm
Who are you to criticize when beauty's only in the eyes...
       Bb Gm    Cm    Bb   Gm
Of the beholder, so behold her
Cm                Bb    Gm  Cm  Bb Gm
Sing, sing, sing, why, oh, oh, oh, why, oh?
 
 
CHORUS
      C                Bb
When a girl can't be herself no more
             F                  G
I just wanna cry, I just wanna cry for the world
        C                Bb
When a girl can't be herself no more
             F                  G
I just wanna cry, I just wanna cry for the world (Repeat)
 
 
VERSE 2
Cm               Bb            Gm       Cm
Uh, uh, I'm so secure with insecurities
                 Bb            Gm     Cm
Why is being unique such an impurity?
                             Bb         Gm
Why are the numbers on the scale like a God to me?
Cm                             Bb             Gm     Cm
All of these indifferences are based on our appearances
     Bb           Gm
We please to be appeased
Cm                         Bb                Gm
The truest pleasure is the fact that we can breathe
Cm                        Bb         Gm
Think it into existence, do it, then achieve
Cm                     Bb               Gm
A fairy tale reality, beauty was with a beast
Cm               Bb              Gm
Uh, uh, I'm the image of your reflection
Cm                  Bb            Gm
Eh, eh, you're the image of my reflection
Cm                Bb           Gm   Cm   Bb    Gm
Sing, sing, sing, why, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh why, oh?
 
 
CHORUS
      C                Bb
When a girl can't be herself no more
             F                  G
I just wanna cry, I just wanna cry for the world
        C                Bb
When a girl can't be herself no more
             F                  G
I just wanna cry, I just wanna cry for the world (Repeat)
