Standard Tuning 
I wasnt born this way 
I been living a lie they say 
Somebody brought me to my knees well, I had everything 
So tell me would you please, how could I possibly have needed, so much more 
The thing I was craving 
Was some kind of lady 
So I might find a friend 
and all the aching in my muscles as they hurt oh wont you put my hands to work to ease  
my mind 
And you realise in a moments grace 
you've been unravelling the fabric of your coat 
And you pick a line down the wall and trace 
till the end 
and when you walk back sorry with a fallen body like you should 
no i am not gonna die this way 
Maybe it was was the mould you see 
that was knocking the wall in me 
that I forgot just what it was that 
i had needed to be for all the time id given 
maybe i forgot what living was now for 
and you realise in a moments grace 
you might just already be onto something good 
and you pick a line on a call and trace 
because you can 
and when it comes back heavy 
youll be more than ready like you should 
Cause i am not gonna die this way 
Through a crack in the road it sprung 
a seedling warm and young 
stretching out for the sun 
its almost in Im giddy 
For this time I might be winning 
as the moving lights that time of year lay still 
and as my body changes pace I seem to know again that Im not gonna die this way 
oh Ill hold my misses in a bed of kisses like I should 
Cause I am not gonna die this way
