E
I'm driving around town
Dbm
Kinda bored with the windows rolled down
E
See a girl on a bus stop bench
A
Dressed to draw attention
E
Hoping everyone will stare
        Dbm
If she don't stand out she thinks she'll disappear
B                                  
Wish I could hold her, tell her, show her
A                            B
What she wants is already there

   E
A star is a star
     A
It doesn't have to try to shine
 B
Water will fall
        A
A bird just knows how to to fly
     E
You don't have to tell a flower how to bloom
     A
Or light how to fill up a room
      F#m                 A
You already are what you are
                     E           
and what you are is beautiful


E                           
Heard a story the other day
     Dbm
Took place at the local VA
   E
A father talking to his dying son
      A
This was his conversation
 E
"It's not supposed to be like this
    Dbm
You can't go first I can't handle it"
     B 
The boy said "Dad now don't you cry,
  A                                           B
Remember when I was a child what you used to tell me when I'd ask why?"
             E        
(You'd say) Gravity is gravity
    A
It doesn't try to pull you down
B
Stone is stone
          A
It can't help but hold its ground
     E
The wind just blows, though you can't see
     A
It's everywhere like I'll always be
       F#m                A
You already are what you are
                      E
And what you are is strong enough
F#m
Look in the mirror
      Dbm
Now that's another story to tell
F#m
I give love to others
    B
But I give myself hell
F#m
I'd have to tell myself
           Dbm
"In every scene there's a perfect plan"
D          
Everything I hoped to be
A
I already am
   E
A flower is a flower
    A
It doesn't have to try to bloom
     B
And light is light
           A
Just knows how to fill a room
    E
And dark is dark
         A
So the stars have a place to shine
     B
The tide goes out
                A
So it can come back another time
E       
Goodbye makes hello so sweet
     A                   
And love is love so it can teach us
      F#m               A
We already are what we are
             B      E
And what we are is beautiful
      Dbm
And strong enough
     E
And good enough
     Dbm           E
And bright enough
