[Verse]
      G      
Some don't believe 
             Gsus4
I'm a living soul
        C   
Just a bad mistake 
that 
         G  Gsus4
needs to go
       C
If my mama coulda 
just 
seen my face
       D
Maybe she woulda 
had me anyway
     G
And there are those 
who speak for me
     C        
Who fight for lives 
that 
            G
they can't see
     C
But there are some 
who only mourn
      D
This life of mine 
if I were born
[Chorus]
       G
All I wanted was 
a chance
             Am
To learn to love and 
laugh and dance
       C     G/B         
Oh but I was gone before 
Am
I arrived
      C       G   
Sent back to Heaven on 
   Am  G     D
a starlight flight
