Intro: Bb Cm Ebmaj7 F7 Bb

Thought I was bad and I had to get good
Thought I was smart but I misunderstood
Ebmaj7                    F7
Felt I was weak and I had to get strong
       Bb                                      Cm/Bb
I was sure I was right then I found I was wrong
Thought I was lost and I had to get found
They called me square so I tried to get round
Ebmaj7                F7
Felt I was lazy and I had to get busy
Swore I was high, but I was just plain dizzy

Now I really know like I never knew before
Ebmaj7              F7            Bb
The Lord come a-knocking and I finally opened up the door, no doubt about it
Bb                   Cm9                  Ebmaj7       F7sus4  F7  Bb
Oh, sweet surrender, oh, sweet surrender, oh, sweet sur-ren-der,   oh, sweet

Felt I was bored so I made a switch
Thought I was poor and I had to get rich
Ebmaj7                           F7
I was sure I was crazy and I had to get sane
     Bb                               Cm/Bb 
That wasn't enough so I changed my name
Thought my image needed a pat on the back
I thought my ego needed a Cadillac
Ebmaj7                     F7
There I was sitting in the driver's seat
I was feeling low and still incomplete
