Go back and repeat this again for the second verse but after you play part 3 fill the next bar up until the chorus just by openly strumming. The chorus is almost exactly the same structure howevever there are no 2 bars in the beginning that served as the intro and the fill to the second verse. Also, instead of playing Part 2 after playing Part 1 three times you play Part 4... -Part 4
eb|---------0-0-0-|---------0-0-0-|Ab|---------0-0-0-|---------0-0-0-|Ab|---0-0---0-0-0-|---000---0-0-0-|Db|---4-4---4-4-4-|---777---7-7-7-|Ab|---2-2---2-2-2-|---555---5-5-5-|Db|---------------|---------------| Feel.........I belong
-Middle 8 Play this 3 times then on the 4th time only play the first two bars (5/7 chord and 7/9 chord) and then go back and play Part 3, open strumming to fill the bar gap to the chrous again.

Lyrics I am a question to the world Not an answer to be heard Or a moment, that's held in your arms And what, do ya think you'd ever say? I won't listen anyway You don't know me And I'll never be what you want me to be And what, do you think you'd understand? I'm a boy, no, I'm a man You can't take me, and throw me away And how, can you learn what's never shown? Yeah you stand here on your own They don't know me, cause I'm not here And I want a moment to be real Wanna touch things I don't feel Wanna hold on, and feel I belong And how, can the world want me to change? They're the ones that stay the same They don't know me, cause I'm not here And you, see the things they never see All you wanted, I could be Now you know me, and I'm not afraid And I, wanna tell you who I am Can you help you be a man? They can't break me As long as I know who I am They can't tell me who to be Cuz I'm not what they see Yeah the world is still sleeping While I keep on dreaming, for me And their words are just whispers and lies That I'll never believe I'm the one, cause I'm still here I'm still here
