Capo 3

G - D/F - Em7 - Cadd9

G                  D/F 
You didn't ask for this
             Em7
Nobody ever would
                        Cadd9
Caught in the middle of this dysfunction
G                  D/F   
Itís your sad reality
                            Em7 
Itís your messed up family tree
                     Cadd9
Now youíre left with all these questions

Am                          C
Are you gonna be like your father was and his father was?
Am                            C     
Do you have to carry what theyíve handed down?

G                     D/F  
No, this is not your legacy
                  Em7
This is not your destiny
               Cadd9
Yesterday does not define you

G                     D/F
No, this is not your legacy
                      Em7
This is not your meant to be
                Cadd9
I can break the chains that bind you

G - D/F - Em7 - Cadd9

G                    D/F
I have a dream for you
                              Em7
Itís better than where youíve been
                      Cadd9
Itís bigger than your imagination

G                       D/F 
Youíre gonna find real love
                            Em7
And youíre gonna hold your kids
                            Cadd9
Youíll change the course of generations

G                    D/F  
No, this is not your legacy
                     Em7
This is not your destiny
               Cadd9
Yesterday does not define you

G                    D/F
No, this is not your legacy
                      Em7
This is not your meant to be
                 Cadd9
I can break the chains that bind you

Am                           C
Youíre my child, youíre my chosen
          G             D/F
You are loved, you are loved
               Am                 C
And I will restore all that was broken
          G             D/F
You are loved, you are loved

G                          D/F
And just like the seasons change
             Em7       
Winter into spring
                                 Cadd9
Youíre bringing new life to your family tree now
Yes you are, you are

G - D/F - Em7 - Cadd9

G                     D/F
Oh, this will be your legacy
                  Em7
This will be your destiny
              Cadd9         
Yesterday did not define you

G                     D/F
Oh, this will be your legacy
                   Em7
This will be your meant to be
                Cadd9
I can break the chains that bind you

G                           D/F
And just like the seasons change
              Em7
Winter into spring
                                  Cadd9
Youíre bringing new life to your family tree now
