Track Name: No Stranger Than Life
No Stranger than Life

by Tai Shan

We are all just guessing what we’re doing here
How should we spend the moments through the years
We are all just breathing one breath at a time
Unraveling the world from the stories that became our mind

We are all just hoping the theories were right
Whether incantations, incarnations or a white blinding light

Chorus:

Have a little mercy on each other
Cause were going to be here a long long time
Might as well surrender to a stranger no stranger than life

Verse:

Were all just acting like we think we should
And every disaster we try to mask our fears and keep going through
We are all just thinking on the problems that need solving
We work so hard to get close to accomplishing something

We are all just living the best we can do
So have a little mercy a little loving kindness and we’ll get through

Chorus
Track Name: As Long as I'm Beautiful
Bmin F# 2x

Bmin B0
I’m not a pretty princess
G F#7
I have scars that I could show you
Bo Bmin
if you needed me too

Bo
Don’t tease and taunt me
G F# Bmin
say I never learned to love like you


Bmin Bo
So go ahead and kill me
G F#
I’m already dead inside
Bmin
Come on get with it
Bo G
I’m marrying a man who thirsts for the hunt
F#
and tastes for my hide

G D Bmin G
Your lucky to wear the shadows with your face in black
G D Bmin Bmin/A G F#7
Don’t you see I’m tied to this fate and I can not escape



D G Bmin4 G
as long as I’m beautiful someones going to hunt me down
D G Bmin4 G
As long as I’m beautiful someones going to break me down
D G Bmin4 E7sus4
As long as I’m beautiful someones will want me as a prize
Bmin Bmin/A G F#
Thats how I’m strong enough to survive without love in my life



Bmin B0
When I was a young girl
G F#7
I’d ride through town and even then
Bo Bmin
the greasy little school boys would try to tame and rope me down

Bmin B0
If you really must know
G F#7
I learned to love such a long time ago
G7
But when I finally confess
F#
he picked up and left
Bmin
said he needed more money to
Emin
date such a beauty
F# Bmin// Bmin/A
and that was the last I heard of him.

I’m strong enough to survive without love in my life
