The Boy In The Bubble(Keyboard chords)

Alec Benjamin

Key: D
      Bm 
It was 6:48, I was walking home 

Stepped through the gate, and I'm all alone 
        Em 
I had chicken on the plate, but the food was cold 

Then I covered up my face so that no one knows 
D 
I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble 
    F#m 
But then came trouble 
         Bm 
When my mom walked into the living room 

She said, 'Boy, you gotta tell me what they did to you' 
          Em 
I said, 'You don't wanna know the things I had to do' 

She said, 'Son, you gotta tell me why you're black and blue' 
D          
I said I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble 
      F#m 
But then came trouble 

Pre-chorus

        Bm 
And my heart was pumping, chest was screaming 
  Em 
Mind was running, air was freezing 
 D 
Put my hands up, put my hands up 
   F#m 
I told this kid I'm ready for a fight 

Bm Em Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain D Every time you curse my name F#m I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen Bm Em Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground D It's only gonna let you down F#m Come the lightning and the thunder You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
Bm Well I squared him up, left my chest exposed He threw a quick left hook and it broke my nose Em I had thick red blood running down my clothes And a sick, sick look 'cause I like it though D I said I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble F#m But then came trouble Pre-chorus Bm And my heart was pumping, chest was screaming Em Mind was running, nose was bleeding D Put my hands up, put my hands up F#m I told this kid I'm ready for a fight
Bm Em Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain D Every time you curse my name F#m I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen Bm Em Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground D It's only gonna let you down F#m Come the lightning and the thunder You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
Bm It was 6:48, he was walking home With the blood on his hand from my broken nose Em But like every other day, he was scared to go Back to his house 'cause his pops was home D Drowning his troubles in whiskey bubbles F#m Just looking for trouble Bm Well, there's no excuse for the things he did But there's a lot at home that he's dealing with Em Because his dad's been drunk since he was a kid And I hope one day that he'll say to him D Put down those bubbles and that belt buckle F#m In this broken bubble
Bm Em Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain D Every time you curse my name F#m I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen Bm Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground D It's only gonna let you down F#m Come the lightning and the thunder You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
