                     Em *                                       
I was born inside a small town, I've lost that state of mind
              G/B *      C                                          D *
Learned to sing inside the Lord's house, but stopped at the age of nine
                     Em *
I forget when I get awards now the wave I had to ride
              G/B *      C *                          D *
The paving stones I played upon, they kept me on the grind
                     Em *
So blame it on the pain that blessed me with the life
              G/B *       C *                                        D *
Friends and family filled with envy when they should be filled with pride
                     Em *
And when the world's against me is when I really come alive
             G/B *       C                                  D *  
And every day that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride
Em                     Em                               G/B
You know that I've got whisky with white lines and smoke in my lungs
          C                                 Dadd4         G *
I think life has got to the point I know without it's no fun
           Em                                     G/B
I need to get in the right mind and clear myself up
            C                               Dadd4        G *
Instead, I look in the mirror questioning what I've become
             Em                                  G/B
I guess it's a stereotypical day for someone like me
          C                     Dadd4
Without a nine-to-five job or a uni degree
      Em                                    G/B
To be caught up in the trappings of the industry
               C                                    Dadd4
They showed me the locked doors I find another use of key

And you'll see

Save your lovin' arms for a rainy day

I used to think that nothing could be better than touring the world with my songs
              C                             Dadd4               G *
I chased the picture perfect life, I think they painted it wrong
             Em                              G/B
I think that money is the root of evil and fame is hell
C                            Dadd4                  G *
Relationships and hearts you fixed, they break as well
 Em                       G/B
And ain't nobody wanna see you down in the dumps
               C                            Dadd4            G *
Because you're living your dream, man, this shit should be fun

Please know that I'm not trying to preach like I'm Reverend Run
        C                                Dadd4      G *
I beg you, don't be disappointed with the man I've become
         Em                              G/B
Our conversations with my father on the A14
     C                                      Dadd4    G *
Age twelve telling me I've gotta chase those dreams
  Em                                        G/B
Now I'm playing for the people, Dad, and they know me
        C                                    Dadd4     G *
With my beat and small guitar wearing the same old jeans
        Em                                G/B
Wembley Stadium crowd two hundred and forty thou
           C                     D           G *
I may have grown up but I hope that Damien's proud
            Em                               G/B
And to the next generation, inspiration's allowed
          C                              D             
The world may be filled with hate but keep erasing it now

I woke up this morning lookin' in the mir - ror
                                    D *             Em *                                    
Thinkin' to myself that I should probably be thinner
                                      G/B *
The industry told me to look like them
   C *                              D *
But I found my happiness in fried food for my dinner
      Em *                                   G/B * 
I wish that she could have been my first time
          C *                           D *
And I wish that I'd never took that first line
       Em                                    G/B *
And I wish that every word in this verse rhymed
  C *                         D *
But forgive me if it doesn't
                            Em                                            
I wish that I could make peace with my older cousin
          G/B                      C
I wish he didn't think that it was me when it wasn't
      D   G *                 Em
I wish I didn't love it when I'm high and my face feels buzzin'
G/B                       C                 D
And the taste stays underneath my tongue, and
 G *         Em                            
Wish that I had known what to do as a youngling
         G/B                  C                                 D
Wish I hadn't dropped out of school and missed every single party
     G *  Em                        G/B
With that hardly matters now, man, does it?
         C                            D        G *
Wish I had an answer to everything, but fuck it
                Em                          G/B
I wish creatin' art didn't come with a budget
               C     
But while we're on the subject
             D                      G *       Em
I wish my private life would have never gone public
             G/B
But that's the sacrifice that we make
           C                            D   G *
Spendin' my whole time high livin' life away

  Em                           G/B
I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
                 C                       Dadd4 G *
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
  Em                                       G/B
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
                  C                           Dadd4    G *           
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

          Em *                                   G/B *     C *
I'm using jumpers for goalposts, cigarettes for throat cold
                         D *                        Em*
Mum sayin', "Don't smoke," no, I don't listen, I got
                                     G/B *    C *
Love for a ghost note, shows on the gold coast
                        D *       
People that I don't know share the same vision
     Em *                                                C *
I find truth in the hard times and words that aren't mine
                             D *
Tryin' to find a love with a compatible star sign
Em *                                 G/B *      C *
Sometimes I can't write, sentences can't rhyme
                         D *            G *         Em
Starin' at my notepad quick, I'm tryin' to find mine
                         G/B
Shit quick before I hit it again
            C                                D     G *
Surrounded in the industry by all these ignorant men
     Em                                         G/B
And who knew that I'd be paid just to pick up a pen
     C                             D               G *
Just let me hit the studio when we can rip it again
Em                                          G/B
I'm a competitive dick with an adrenaline kick
           C                              D
My daddy told me, "Work hard and you can never be shit"
          Em
I've seen all my heroes dethroned except my dad
    C                                 C          F# *
Set back here reminiscing 'bout the times we had
    Em
One wish
