Kezia Hart – Strings
C
I really thought that I’d found someone special,
Am F
That you were somehow, someone different from the rest.
Am C Am G
I really thought that when you said that you loved me, you meant it. C
But somehow you thought that when you found someone special, Am F Am C That you can hold them and never let them take a breath of fresh air C Am G
Never let them leave your sight, you think you own them.
C G Am F
You thought when you break someone’s heart C G Am F That that now, somehow, defines who they are.
C G AmF
I’ll never fall into your arms again
C G AmF
I’ve now found the difference ‘between what you said and meant C G Am FC
Look at me now, I’m perfectly fine without you.
C G AmF
Now let me say it loud and clear –
CGFC
I don’t need a puppet master.
CGFG
GC
And now you’re back. Now you want me to forgive you,
Am F Am C But you don’t own me, you never should’ve kept me there against my will. C AmG
When you say that you’re sorry, think I’ll believe you?
C Am How do you sleep, knowing how much you’ve hurt not only me,
Am F Am But all those around you, everyone to cross your path?
AmC Am G
Do you believe that hurting everyone you meet will make you feel better? CGAmFCG AmF
How do you now expect me to run right back to you like you’ve done nothing wrong?
C G AmF
I’ll never fall into your arms again
C G AmF
I’ve now found the difference ‘between what you said and meant C G Am FC
Look at me now, I’m perfectly fine without you.
C G AmF
Now let me say it loud and clear –
Am G
I once had strings but now I’m free
C
No I ain’t got no strings on me!
Am G C
I won’t let you back again; find someone else to marionette. Am F
You’ll never control me, I’ve ripped off all my strings,
F
And you’ll never be my puppet master!
CGFC Look at me now, I’m perfectly strong without you! CG
Now let me say it loud and clear –
C G AmF
I’ll never fall into your arms again
C G AmF
I’ve now found the difference ‘between what you said and meant C G Am FC
Look at me now, I’m perfectly fine without you.
C G AmF
Now let me say it loud and clear –
CGFG You need me to say it loud and clear, one last time –
CGFC
I don’t need a puppet master.
