Blood Orange – By Ourselves Chords

No Capo

[Verse]
G
Oh
D
They took and skinned my name
Em
Try to raise the feeling
C
I saw right through, tried to love them
G
They threw it in your face, tell you what you're feeling
D
How could they know?
Em
It's what they read
C
So when you see her cry, you always knew
It's how we could all by ourselves
G I will show you a 26 year old woman D who learned to dance until she felt pretty Em Feminism wears a throwback jersey, C bamboo earrings, and a face beat for the gods G Feminism is Missy, Lil Kim, D and Angie Martinez on the ?Not Tonight? track Em Feminism says as a woman in my arena you are not my competition C As a woman in my arena your light doesn?t make mine any dimmer G Dear Missy: D I did not grow up to be you Em But I did grow up to be me C And to be in love with who this woman is G To be a woman playing a man?s game D And not be apologetic about any of it Em If you ask me why representation is important C I will tell you that on the days I don?t feel pretty G I hear the sweet voice of Missy singing to me D Pop that pop that, jiggle that fat Em Don?t stop, get it til your clothes get wet C I will tell you that right now there are a million black girls just waiting to see someone who looks like them
