 Dm C Bb C Dm C Bb A   


[Verse 1]

    Dm C 
He wakes up in the morning, his eyes are red he hardly slept 
    B C 
It were his thoughts that kept him up all night, one of so many nights he cried.
             Dm C 
These awful names till floating through his head
                                Bb F 
with all the nasty things they said carving their marks into his heart
 C Dm 
Their nochalance rips him apart.
                         C Bb 
Another day, will it be cruel? The fear travels with him to school
                            A 
Nervous he treads into the hall, he ingores what they call


[Chorus]

   Dm Bb 
I know you find it hard to believe but it gets better.
                             C                  
I know it hurts it's only a matter of time and then you will find:
 Bb A 
It takes the dark of night before the sun can shine
 Dm Bb 
I know the pain is hard to forget, but life gets brighter,
                                        C  
with a smile on your face you'll stand right there and then

no more need to pretend,
     Bb A D 
you know the time was tough but it was effort well spent.


[Verse 2]

 Dm C Bb 
She's gazing out the window before laugh this used to be her favourite class
                          C 
Now it takes all her energy to keep their words away
     Dm C Bb 
You see her distant looks, her empty stares, gifts from a word that doesn't care
                             C Dm 
She doesn't know she's not alone, she doesn't feel she has a home
                             C Bb 
As she gets pushed onto the ground, she doesn't even make a sound
                       A 
People look the other way. The teachers pretends it's just childly play


[Chorus]

   Dm Bb 
I know you find it hard to believe but it gets better.
                             C                  
I know it hurts it's only a matter of time and then you will find:
 Bb A 
It takes the dark of night before the sun can shine
 Dm Bb 
I know the pain is hard to forget, but life gets brighter,
                                        C  
with a smile on your face you'll stand right there and then

no more need to pretend,
     Bb A D 
you know the time was tough but it was effort well spent.


[Bridge]

 Bb C 
So what you're different from the rest
                            Dm 
Can't you see that you are best
                         Bb 
Being yourself is not a sin

You give this world some coloring
                                C Dm 
Please put that pen and letter down, soon the world will be your playground, 
                             C 
I know it seems too much to bear it takes some strength but you're getting there.


[Verse 3]

    Dm C Gm 
It took some time for them but finally they understand it's other peoples insecurities 
     Fm Dm 
and not their own that brought them to their knees. 
                                  C Bb 
The world it is an ever changing place. Still they don't always like its pace. 
                                 C Dm 
They know it's moving the right way it's getting better e
