Hey guys this is my first attempt at chords for a song, so please let me know any mistakes! Capo 3 Verse 1 Em C I was seven years old, when I got my first pair I stepped outside G B And I was like, Momma , this air bubble right here, it's gonna make me fly Em C I hit that court, and when I jumped, I jumped, I swear I got so high G B I touched the net, Mom I touched the net.. this is the best day of my life Em Air Max's were next, That air bubble, that mesh C The box, the smell, the stuffin, the tread. Am At school, I was so cool I knew that I couldn't crease 'em G My friends couldn't afford 'em B Four stripes on their Adidas Em On the court I wasn't the best, but my kicks were like the pro's C Yo, I stick out my tongue so everyone could see that logo Am Nike Air Flight , book bag was so dope B And then my friend Carlos' brother got murdered for his Fours, whoa Em See he just wanted a jump shot, but they wanted his Starter coat though C Didn't wanna get caught, from Genesee Park to Othello Em You get clowned for those Pro Wings, with the velcro Those were not tight B I was trying to fly without leaving the ground, Em cuz I wanted to be like Mike, right C Wanted to be him G I wanted to be that guy, I wanted to touch the rim I wanted to be cool, and I wanted to fit in B I wanted what he had, America, it begins Chorus: Em I want to fly C Can you take me far away Am Give me a star to reach for G B Tell me what it takes (Chords repeat) And I'll go so high I'll go so high My feet won't touch the ground Stitch my wings And pull the strings I bought these dreams That all fall down Em We want what we can't have, commodity makes us want it C So expensive, damn, I just got to flaunt it G Got to show 'em, so exclusive, this that new shoe B A hundred dollars for a pair of shoes I would never hoop in Em Look at me, look at me, I'm a cool kid C I'm an individual, yea, but I'm part of a movement Am My movement told me be a consumer and I consumed it G B They told me to just do it, I listened to what that swoosh said Em Look at what that swoosh did C See it consumed my thoughts Are you stupid, don't crease 'em, just leave 'em in that box Em Strangled by these laces, laces I can barely talk B That's my air bubble and I'm lost, if it pops Em We are what we wear, we wear what we are C But see I look inside the mirror and think Phil Nike tricked us all G Will I stand for change, or stay in my box B These Nikes help me define me, but I'm trying to take mine, off (Instrumental bit) Em C G B Em C Am G B Em C G B Em C Am G B (Chorus Chords same as first chorus) I want to fly Can you take me far away Give me a star to reach for Tell me what it takes And I'll go so high I'll go so high My feet won't touch the ground So stitch my wings And pull the strings I bought these dreams That all fall down Em C Am G B Em They started out, with what I wear to school C That first day, like these are what make you cool G And this pair, this would be my parachute B So much more than just a pair of shoes Em Nah, this is what I am What I wore, this is the source of my youth C This dream that they sold to you Am For a hundred dollars and some change Consumption is in the veins G B And now I see it's just another pair of shoes
