Verse:
 C#m             A
Well I live in America
 B               E
And here is how it lies
 C#m           A
Underneath my pillow
 B               E
Are plans that God passed by
 C#m                  A
She said it'd be all right
 B                E
If I had to walk away
 C#m                 A      
The greatest view is from the edge
  B                E  (hold E longer)
It's always been that way


Chorus:
 C#m         B2        A2
And I'm becoming, beautiful
 B       A             E
So much harder than I thought
 C#m         B2        A2
It only feels like losing now
  B          A          E    (End with E downstrum)
I guess I'll understand someday.


(Tempo Change)

Verse2:
 C#m             A
She opens up her pain
 B       E
Becomes serene
 C#m                 A
If I could slip this vanity
 B                 E
That's how I'd like to be.
 C#m                 A
Cause I'm staring at myself
 B                     E
As I'm Staring at the earth
 C#m           A
It seems so unfamiliar
 B                    E
The way that things once were


Chorus:
And I'm becoming, beautiful
So much harder than I thought
It only feels like losing now
I guess I'll understand someday.

Verse 3:
If I could be alone
If I could be with you
I would stop a point and blame
Even though it's true
And even though I said it,
It feels like just like losing anyway
And I sometimes half regretted it,
But I never ran away

Chorus:
Cause I'm becoming, beautiful
So much harder than I thought
It only feels like losing now
I guess I'll understand someday.


Intro Riff (Faster tempo)
But if you're becoming beautiful,
It's gonna be so much harder than you know
Then if you feel like you're losing now,
Then I guess I'll understand someday
I'm told I'll understand someday
She'll understand someday.
I guess I'll understand someday.
