[Intro]
Em
You have a rough childhood as well
                                                         Bm
Because with you being the only Black kid used to be up there
Used to be rough, but you survived it though
                   Em
It was a rough year..
                   Bm
(To make me happy, ooh)
(It's a—)

[Verse 1]
Em
Tried to move on, but got motion sick
It's hard to forget when the dark days hit (Ooh)
     Bm
It's cruel, remember the things I didn't do
And a dark day hits once more (It's a—)
   Em 
In disbelief at the depth of the skies
Can't open my eyes (Ooh)
        Bm
Nothing holdin' me down, yet there's weight insid?
Reminds me I'm actually sinkin' (It's a—)
Em
I've been thinkin' 'bout th? future
Feelin' things I didn't used to
      Bm
I was free, not before
                                      Em
But after my fall (It's a—), free to believe in words I didn't mean
Just to get by
       Bm
I'd rather die than to cry          
It's a hard life

[Chorus]
        Em
(It's a hard, yeah)
It's a hard life
            Bm
(To make me happy, ooh) It's a hard life
                         Em
To make me happy (It's a hard, yeah)
             Bm
(To make me happy, ooh)
(It's a—)

[Verse 2]
Em
Straw that broke the camel's back
Don't think I can live with that...
Bm
Always seem to fall harder than before (It's a—)
Em
I'm bruised when it's buried, I'm cut when it's open
                                                     Bm   
I don't think the end is near, but here's hopin', a sign
It won't be the last time, but the learnin' is makin' you stronger
          Em
A little longer, I've been waitin'
All this shit's so frustratin' (Ooh)
       Bm
I was free, not anymore
Facin' things from before (It's a—)
            Em
I tried to believe in words I didn't mean
Just to get by (Ooh)
Bm
I'd rather die than to cry
It's a hard life

[Chorus]
        Em
(It's a hard, yeah)
It's a hard life
            Bm
(To make me happy, ooh) It's a hard life
                         Em
To make me happy (It's a hard, yeah)
             Bm
(To make me happy, ooh)
(It's a—)

[Bridge]
Em
Straw that broke the camel's back
Don't think I can live with that
Bm
Always seem to fall harder than before
Em
Da da da da da da da (Ooh)
Bm
Mm mm mm, mm mm mm
Em                                   Bm
Da da da-da, da da-da da da-da (It's a—)
Da da da da
                            Em
Da-da da-da-da da-da (It's a—)
           Bm 
Da-da da (Ooh)
       
Oh-oh, oh, oh-oh, oh

[Outro]
         Em
(It's a hard, yeah)
It's a hard life
                              Bm
It's a hard life (To make me happy, ooh)
             Em 
To make me happy
