Dm                        C               Dm 
As I raise my head to broadcast my objection 
                          C                 Dm 
As your latest triumph draws the final straw 
                     C           Dm 
Who died and lifted you up to perfection? 
                       C                Dm 
And what silenced me is written into law. 
C                                        Dm 
I can't believe where circumstance has thrown me 
      C              Dm 
And I turn my head away 
      C                             Dm 
If I look I'm not sure that I could face you. 
      Am         C           Dm 
Not again. Not today. Not today. 
Dm                   C             Dm   
If hatred makes a play on me tomorrow 
                         C              Dm  
And forgiveness takes a back seat to revenge 
                               C               Dm 
There's a hurt down deep that has not been corrected 
                                 C               Dm 
There's a voice in me that says you will not win.  
   C                  Dm 
And if I ignore the voice inside, 
  C                       Dm 
Raise a half glass to my home. 
 C                     Dm 
But it's there that I am most afraid, 
            Am           C               Dm 
And forgetting doesn't hold. it doesn't hold. 
Now I don't believe and I never did 
That two wrongs make a right. 
If the world were filled with the likes of you 
         Dm                                    F 
Then I'm putting up a fight. I'm putting up a fight. 
              Dm               Am            C             Dm 
Putting up a fight. make it right. make it right.  
      Dm            C                  Dm 
Now love cannot be called into question. 
                    C                Dm 
Forgiveness is the only hope I hold. 
                 C                    Dm 
And love,  love will be my strongest weapon. 
                     C          Dm 
I do believe that I am not alone. 
          C                    Dm 
For this fear will not destroy me. 
          C                   Dm 
And the tears that have been shed 
       C                    Dm 
It's knowing now where I am weakest 
         Am          C            Dm 
And the voice in my head. in my head. 
        C                  Dm 
Then I raise my voice up higher 
        C             Dm 
And I look you in the eye 
       C                     Dm 
And I offer love with one condition. 
       Am                 C 
With conviction, tell me why. 
Tell me why. 
Tell me why. 
Look me in the eye.  
Tell me why.
