[BRIDGE] 

    C                     G            Am                F
    I am the one thing in life I can control
    I am inimitable, I am an original
    I'm not falling behind or running late
    I'm not standing still, I am lying in wait

    C                   G              Am                F
    Hamilton faces an endless uphill climb
    He has something to prove, he has nothing to lose
    Hamilton's pace is relentless, he wastes no time

    C
    What is it like 

    In his shoes? ----

B|---1-------8-----8-------------------|

    Hamilton doesn't hesitate...          restraint and he takes...

G|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|

    He keeps winning anyway...            the game and he raises the stakes...

    And if there's a reason he seems to thrive when so few survive, then goddamnit
    I'm willing to wait for it         

                   C (let ring)
    I'm willing to wait for it

[CHORUS]

      Am                       F                          C                       G
    Life doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes
    We keep living anyway, we rise and we fall and we break and we make our mistakes
    And if there's a reason I'm still alive while so many have died, then I'm willing to—

[Outro]
                              Wait for it                   Wait for it
