          Why do we harm the only  thing we wanna be?




Time after time we
Walk pass the window
But never see the ashes on the ground

Night after night
Watching the sky move
Never feel the earth spinning 'round

I didn't see you fallin'
I couldn't hear you callin'
Born with eyes wide open never learn to see

I never ment to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be

Trying to follow 
Every footstep
I feel so lost along the way

Reading the scripture
Straight from the gospel
Never understanding what they say

I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you' callin'
I've got my eyes wide open 
but haven't learned to see

Yeah

I never ment to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be

I just gotta be 
Me
I just gotta be
Me

Yeah

[GUITAR SOLO]

I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you callin'
I've got my eyes wide open but never learned to see

I never ment to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
We only cage the very thing we want to free

I just wanna be
I just gotta be

I just gotta be me
I wanna be

[Remember, on the verses, all the 5's, 7's, and 12's are harmonics]



Well, other than the solo and interlude, thats it.
Hope you enjoy it!!
