[Chorus]
Em           D/F#         G  
Hoping for a life more sweeter
   Em               D/F#     G   
Instead I'm just a story repeating
Cmaj7     Bm        Am   
Why do I fear with skin dark as night?
Cmaj7        Bm         Am   
Can't feel peace with those judging eyes

[Verse 1]
    Em                         D/F#    G   
I thought we moved on from the darker days
                      Em       D/F#         G 
Did the words of the King disappear in the air

Like a butterfly?
   Cmaj7                   Bm  Am    
Somebody should hand you a felony
            Cmaj7  Bm  Am     
Because you stole from me
My chance to be

[Chorus]
Em           D/F#        G  
Hoping for a life more sweeter
    Em              D/F#     G    
Instead I'm just a story repeating
Cmaj7     Bm        Am   
Why do I fear with?skin?dark as night?
Cmaj7        Bm         Am   
Can't?feel peace with those judging eyes 

[Verse 2]
     Em          D/F#    G   E/G#  Am   
The tears of my mother rain, rain over me
     Em            D/F#     G    E/G#  Am
My sisters and my brothers sing, sing over me
      Em D/F# G E/G# Am     
And I wish I had another day,
Em    D/F#             G         E/G#   Am
.......but it's just another day...........

[Chorus]
Em           D/F#         G  
Hoping for a life more sweeter
   Em               D/F#     G   
Instead I'm just a story repeating
Cmaj7     Bm        Am   
Why do I fear with?skin?dark as night?
Cmaj7        Bm         Am   
Can't?feel peace with those judging eyes
                         
Hoping for a life more sweeter
