When I was born they looked at me and said
what a good boy,
what a smart boy,
what a strong boy,
When you were born, they looked at you and said
what a good girl,
what a smart girl,
what a pretty girl,
We got these chains hanging round our necks
people want to strangle us with them
before we take our first breath
Afraid of change afraid of staying the same
when temptation calls we just look away.
This chain is the hairshirt I wear
and this hearshirt is woven from
your brown hair
This song is the cross that I bear
Bear it with me , bear it with me, bear with me
Be with me tonight
I know that it isn't right
but be with me tonight
I go to school
I write exams
If I pass, if I fail, if I drop out
does anyone really give a damn
And if they do they'll soon forget
cuz' it won't take much for me to show
my life ain't over yet
I wake up scared I wake up strange
and I wake up wondering if
anything in my life is ever gonna change
I wake up scare I wake up strange
and everything around me stays the same
chorus
i couldn't tell you that i was wrong
chickened out, grabbed a pen and paper, sat down and i wrote this song
i couldn't tell you that you were right
so instead i looked in the mirror watched tv laid awake all night
we've got these chains hanging around our necks
people want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath
afraid of change, afraid of staying the same
when temptation calls....
chorus
when i was born they looked at me and said
what a good boy, what a smart boy, what a strong boy
and when you were born they looked at you and said
what a good girl, what a smart girl, what a pretty girl, hey
