[Verse 1]

C                               Csus4
Let's begin at the beginning, we're lovers and we're losers
G                                       F
We're heroes and we're pioneers, we're beggars and we're choosers
G                               Am
Skirting 'round the edges of the ideal demographic
G                                       F
We're always on the guest list,but we're always stuck in traffic
C                                       Csus4
We've watched our close associates Up and play their parts; 
G                                       F
They're chatting up the it girls, And they're tearing up the charts, 
G                                       Am
While we were paying with coppers To get our round in at the bar.
G                                       F
We're the C-Team, we're the almost famous Old friends of the stars.


[Bridge 1]

Am       G      F        


[Verse 2]

C                       Csus4
Justin is the last Of the great romantic poets, 
G                                       F
And he's the only one among us Who is ever going to make it. 
G                               Am
We planned a revolution From a cheap Southampton bistro. 
G                               F
I don't remember details But there were English boys with banjos. 
C                       Csus4
Jay is our St George, and he's standing on a wooden chair, 
G                                               F
And he sings songs and he slays dragons, and he's losing all his hair. 
G                               Am
Adam is the resurrected spirit of Gram Parsons, 
G                               F
In plaid instead of rhinestone and living in South London. 
C                                       Csus4
And no one's really clear about Tommy's job description, 
G                               F
But it's pretty clear he's vital to the whole damn operation. 
G                                       Am
Dave Danger smiles at strangers, Tre's the safest girl I know, 
G                                       F
Zo and Harps will skamper up to victory in the city we call home. 


[Bridge 2]

Am                              G                               F 
We won't change our ways, we will proud remain when the glory fades. 


[Verse 3]

C                               Csus4
I am sick and tired of people Who are living on the B-list. 
G                               F
They're waiting to be famous And they're wondering why they do this. 
G                               Am
And I know I'm not the one who is habitually optimistic, 
G                               F
But I'm the one who's got the microphone here so just remember this: 
C                       Csus4
Life is about love, last minutes and lost evenings, 
G                               F
About fire in our bellies and furtive little feelings, 
G                               Am
And the aching amplitudes that set our needles all a-flickering, 
G                                       F                               C      
And help us with remembering that the only thing that's left to do is live.

Csus4   G

[Verse 4]
 
F
Yeah the only thing that's left to do is live
C                               Csus4
After all the loving and the losing, 
G                       F
For the heroes and the pioneers, 
F                                 G                              C
The only thing that's left to do Is get another round in at the bar
