Erasure
This is of course an 80s song normally performed with synthesizers, but the guitar 
version works better than you might think.

Verse: (1st verse starts off playing staccato) 
        A
 One day the boy decided
                D               E
 To let them know the way he felt inside
        A
 He could not stand to hide it
                D               E
 His mother she broke down and cried

PreChorus:
        E
 Oh my father
                A               D
 Why don't you talk to me now?
        E
 Oh my mother
                A               D
 Do you still cry yourself to sleep?
 E                              A       D       E
 Are you still proud of your little boy?

Chorus:
 D                      E
 Don't be afraid (be afraid)
 D                      A
 You don't have to hideaway

Verse:
 The boy he was rejected
 By the people that he cared for
 It's not what they expected
 But he could not keep it secret anymore

PreChorus:
 Far from home now
 Waiting by the telephone
 There's a new world
 You can make it on your own
 Are you still proud of your little boy?

Chorus:
 Don't be afraid
 You don't have to hideaway, no

Extended Chorus:
 A              F
 Don't be afraid
 D                      A
 Love will mend your broken wing
 A              F       
 Time will slip away
 D              A
 Learn to be brave

Instrumental: D   A  E  D   A

PreChorus:
 Oh my father
 Why don't you talk to me now?
 Oh my mother
 Do you still cry yourself to sleep?
 Are you still proud of your little boy?

Chorus:
 Don't be afraid
 You don't have to hide away, no

Extended Chorus:
 Don't be afraid
 Love will mend your broken wing
 Time will slip away
 Learn to be brave
