Capo 2nd Fret

Chord Reference: 
please don't trust me on the chord NAMES. 
i'm useless at theory so i'm using Guitar Pro's simple 
names to hopefully tell you it right.

   C   G   D   B7  Em  A7  E   Am
E|-0---0---0---2-----------0---0---|
B|-1---0---3---0---8---10--0---1---|

Some sections are a little tricky but you'll figure it out by listening
I've put helpful notes where I can.

E|---0---0---0-----|---0---0---0-------------|
B|---0---0---0-----|---0---0---0-------------|     Its a double strum on the open chorded notes. 
G|---0---0---0-----|---0---0---0-------------|     Listen closely to the song to figure it out.

    C                  G
But back home we don’t care so much
C                             G
  I might be wrong but that’s how it looks
A                            B7
We listen to the sound of our minds


I feel as though I’m losing time
With hands of glory pushing rhymes

C             G
Never been so far before
C                     G
 I drove for days and weeks and more

C                       D
Hard shoulder where the chaos lies
Em                    A7
 An invitation to the darker side

CHORUS: (plays twice, first time B7 is played for 6 beats)
I’m holding on, holding on as my life it slips away
C  G  E  D
C  G  B7

C                      G
I’ve served my purpose true and well 
C                      G
 but I haven’t yet got much to tell
Am                          B7
I listen to the panic in my nerves

C                           G  
 I’d better turn around and try again

I’m holding on, holding on as my life it slips away
