Words & Music:

Meredith Brooks


A                        D

I hate the world today.  You're so good to me.

A                            D

I know, but I can't change.  Tried to tell you,

        F#m                          B                 D

But you look at me like maybe I'm an angel underneath, innocent and sweet.


Yesterday I cried.  Must have been relieved to see

The softer side.  I can understand how

You'd be so confused, I don't envy you, I'm a little bit of everything all rolled into one.



      A                         E

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover, I'm a child, I'm a mother,

      Bm                      D

I'm a sinner, I'm a saint, I do not feel ashamed,

         A                         E

I'm your hell, I'm your dream, I'm nothing in between,

             F#                         D

You know you wouldn't want it any other way


So, take me as I am.  This may mean you'll have to be a stronger man

Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous and I'm going to extremes

Tomorrow I will change and today won't mean a thing





E                                               F#        D

Just when you think, you got me figured out the season's already changing

E                     F#                  D

I think it's cool, you do what you do and don't try to save me


CHORUS:  [2x – second time words are as below:]

I'm a bitch, I'm a tease, I'm a goddess on my knees

When you hurt, when you suffer, I'm your angel undercover

I've been numb, I'm revived, can't say I'm not alive

You know I wouldn't want it any other way
