Track Name: Some Do
Am >> D (the whole song, bass often stays on A)

Some do, some don’t
Some will, but still some of us won’t

See some say we’re all the same
But some are, some aren’t

I work hard to set myself apart
Some grow up, some try and stay young

Like some kid who’s just trying to get a grip
Something to hold, when the storm comes

Some can, but some just can’t
Some choose but still don’t understand
Some chaos is some way toward control
At some cost …

At what cost?
