         G                                     C

I'm a new soul, I came to this strange world

                       Em (½)              D (½)                G

Hoping I could learn a bit ‘bout how to give and take

                 G                                      C

But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear

                         Em (½)         D (½)          G

Finding myself making every possible mistake

          G                                C

I'm a young soul in this very strange world

Finding trust and love is not always easy to make
