JESS GLYNNE - Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself

This song is from the album I Cry When I Laugh(2015), released on 21 August 2015.
I enjoyed the production and the energy in this song. The rhythm felt nice, especially the bass and the background pads. The lack of a lead or a solo made the song a bit monotonous, but the rest of the song was amazing. I especially loved the hard, bright piano in the background and the energetic bridge.

[INTRO] Abm Bbm B
[VERSE]
B                                                       B C# Ebm
I came here with a broken heart that no one else could see
Ebm                       F#                 Abm Bbm B
I drew a smile on my face til they were over me
B                                                  B C# Ebm
The wounds heal and tears dry and cracks they don't show
Ebm                              F# Abm Bbm B
So don't be so hard on yourself, no

[PRE-CHORUS]
Abm Bbm B
Let's go back to simplicity
B                        C#   Ebm
I feel like I've been missing me
Ebm
Was not who I'm supposed to be
F#                      Abm Bbm B
I felt this darkness over me
B
We all get there eventually
B                        C# Ebm
I never knew where I belonged
Ebm
But I was right and you were wrong
                           Abm Bbm B
Been telling us to fall in love

[CHORUS]
B                           Abm
Don't be so hard on yourself, no
Ebm                           C#
Learn to forgive, learn to let go
B                          Abm
Everyone trips, everyone falls
     Ebm                        C#
So don't be so hard on yourself, no
             B                         Abm
Because I'm just tired of marching on my own
           Ebm                  C#
Kind of frail, I feel it in my bones
          B                          Abm
Oh let my heart, my heart turn into stone
      Ebm                      C#
So don't be so hard on yourself, no

[VERSE]
B                                                      B C# Ebm
I'm standin' on top of the world, right where I wanna be
Ebm                       F#              Abm Bbm B
So how can this dark cloud be raining over me
B                                                 B C# Ebm
But hearts break and hells a place that everyone knows
Ebm                      F#       Abm Bbm B
So don't be so hard on yourself, no

[PRE-CHORUS]

I felt this darkness over me
B
We all get there eventually
B                        C# Ebm
I never knew where I belonged
Ebm
But I was right and you were wrong
                           Abm Bbm B

So don't be so hard on yourself, no
             B                         Abm
Because I'm just tired of marching on my own
           Ebm                  C#
Kind of frail, I feel it in my bones
          B                          Abm
Oh let my heart, my heart turn into stone
      Ebm                      C#
So don't be so hard on yourself, no

[BRIDGE]
Abm       Abm Bbm Ebm
Oh, Oh, Oh, I
Ebm                C# F#
I learned to wave goodbye
F#
How not to see my life
C#
From someone else's eyes
Abm
It's not an easy road
Ebm
But now I'm not alone
F#                    C#
So I, I won't be so hard on myself no more

So don't be so hard on yourself, no
             B                         Abm
Because I'm just tired of marching on my own
