C
 I could play the background.
G
 I could play the background.
Am                     F
  Cuz I know sometimes I get in the way.
                     C      C     C
So won't you take the lead, lead, lead.
                      G     G     G
So won't you take the lead, lead, lead.
                  Am
And I can play the background, background.
                    F
And you can take the lead.

C
It's evident you run the show so let me back down.
G
You take the leading role, and I'll play the background.
Am                      F
I know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
                             C
I'm sticking to your script, and I'm reading all your signs.
G
I don't need my name in lights.
Am
I don't need a starring role.
                                   F
And why gain the whole wide world, if I'm just gon' loose my soul.
C
And my ways ain't purified, I'll live according to your Word.
G
I can't endure this life without your wisdom being heard.
Am
So word to every dancer for a pop star
F
Cuz we all play the background, but mine's a rock star.
C
Yeah. So if you need me I'll be stage right.
G
Prayin' the whole world will start embracing stage fright.

Am
So let me fall back and stop giving my suggestions
F
Cuz when I follow my obsessions I end up confessing.
C
That I'm not that impressive, matter fact I'm who I are
G
A trail of star dust leading to the superstar.

C
 I could play the background.
G
 I could play the background.
Am                     F
  Cuz I know sometimes I get in the way.
                     C      C     C
So won't you take the lead, lead, lead.
                      G     G     G
So won't you take the lead, lead, lead.
                  Am
And I can play the background, background.
                    F
And you can take the lead.

C
I had a dream that I was captain of my soul.
G
I was master of my fate, lost control, and then I sank.
Am                               F
So I don't want to take the lead Cuz I'm prone to make mistakes.
C
All these folks that follow me gon' end up in the wrong place.
G
So, just let me shadow you. And just let me trace your lines.
Am                            F
Matter fact just take my pen. Here, you create my rhymes.
C
Cuz if I do this by myself I'm scared that I'll succeed.
G
And no longer trust in You, cuz I only trust in me.
Am
And see, that's how you end up headed to destruction.
F
Paving a road to nowhere. Pour your life out for nothing.

C
You pulled my card, I'm bluffing You know what's in my hand.
G
Me I just roll to trust you to cause the dice to land.
Am
I'm in control of nothing. Follow you at any cost.
F
Some call it sovereign will, all I know is you the boss.
C
And man I'm so at ease. I'm so content.
G
I play the background like it's an instrument.

C
 I could play the background.
G
 I could play the background.
Am                     F
  Cuz I know sometimes I get in the way.
                     C      C     C
So won't you take the lead, lead, lead.
                      G     G     G
So won't you take the lead, lead, lead.
                  Am
And I can play the background, background.
                    F
And you can take the lead.

C
I know I'm safest when I'm in your will and trust your word.
G
And I know I'm dangerous when I trust myself; my vision blurred.
Am
And I ain't got no time to play life's foolish games.
F
Got plenty aims but do they really glorify your name.
C
And its a shame the way I want to do these things for you, yeah.
G
Don't even cling to you. Take time to sit and glean from you.
Am
And its seems that you are patient in my ignorance.


F
If ignorance is bliss, its cuz she never heard of this.


C
 I could play the background.
G
 I could play the background.
