Dixie Chicks

The Dixie Chicks are an American country music band which has also crossed over into other genres. The band is composed of founding members (and sisters) Martie Erwin Maguire and Emily Erwin Robison, and lead singer Natalie Maines. The band formed in 1989 in Dallas, Texas and was originally composed of four women performing bluegrass and country music, busking and touring the bluegrass festival circuits and small venues for six years without attracting a major label. After the departure of one bandmate, the replacement of their lead singer, and a slight change in their repertoire, the Dixie Chicks soon achieved commercial success, beginning in 1998 with hit songs "There's Your Trouble" and "Wide Open Spaces". more »

Tell me now, if you came sneaking up behind 
Would you know me and see behind the smile?
I can change like colors on a wall 
Hoping no one else will find what lies beneath it all 
I think I hide it all so well 

[Chorus]
Stepping out, everyone can see my face 
All the things I can't erase from my life 
Everybody knows 
Standing out so you won't forget my name 
That's the way we play this game of life 
Everybody knows 

Looking through the crowd 
I search for something else 
But every time I turn around 
I run into myself 
Here I stand 
Consumed with my surroundings 
Just another day 
Of everybody looking 
I swore they'd never see me cry 
You'll never see me cry 

[Chorus]

You say I'll pay the price 
That's the chance that I'll take 
Though you may think I'm telling lies 
But I just call it getting by 

Stepping out, everyone can see my face 
All the things I can't erase from my life 
Everybody knows 

Standing out so you won't forget my name 
That's the way we play this game of life 
Everybody knows I am just barely getting by
