Intro:  | C   G5 | Emadd9 | A7 | Emadd9 | A7 |


Verse 1:
Emadd9                         A7         Emadd9                              A7
We the people fight for our existence, We don't claim to be perfect but we're free.
   Emadd9                           A7        Emadd9                          A7
We dream our dreams alone with no resistance, Faded like the stars we wish to be.


Pre-Chorus 1:
                D    D/F            G5      G/F
Y'know I didn't mean,   what I just said,
       Em7                                  A7sus4
But my God woke up on the wrong side of his bed,

And it just don't matter now.


Chorus 1:
G5          D          A                       Em7      D/F
  Little by little, we gave you everything you ever dreamed of.
G5          D           A                        Em7    D/F
  Little by little, the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off.
G5          D           A                   Em7    D/F
  Little by little, you have to give it all in all your life,
G5            D            Cadd9         G/B               A7sus4
  And all the time, I just ask myself why   are you really here?


Verse 2:
Emadd9                      A7
True perfection has to be imperfect,
  Emadd9                                 A7
I know that that sounds foolish but it's true.
    Emadd9                              A7
The day has come and now you'll have to accept,
    Emadd9                               A7
The life inside your head we gave to you.


Pre-Chorus 2:
                D    D/F            G5      G/F
Y'know I didn't mean,   what I just said,
       Em7                                  A7sus4
But my God woke up on the wrong side of his bed,

And it just don't matter now.


Chorus 2:
G5          D          A                       Em7      D/F
  Little by little, we gave you everything you ever dreamed of.
G5          D           A                        Em7    D/F
  Little by little, the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off.
G5          D           A               Em7        D/F
  Little by little, you have to give it all in all your life,
G5            D            Cadd9         G/B               A7sus4
  And all the time, I just ask myself why   are you really here? Hey!


Instrumental/Solo: The solo starts right before Noel sings "here" (Really try to 
use vibrato and bring it to life)
     A                               G5    D    A

(Note: I didn't literally count how many 14's he hits at the end, it's a lot, 
you'll be able to feel how many is enough when you play)


Chorus 3:

G5          D          A                       Em7      D/F
  Little by little, we gave you everything you ever dreamed of.
G5          D           A                        Em7    D/F
  Little by little, the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off.
G5          D           A               Em7        D/F
  Little by little, you have to give it all in all your life,
G5            D                                  D/F 
  And all the time, I just ask myself why you're really here.


(Right when Noel sings "here" there's a lead that chimes in and carries all the 
way through the last few lines and to the outro)
   
E--------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------15v-15v-15v--------|
G-11h12--\14--11h12--\14--11h12--\14---------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------|  PLAY 3 TIMES (When you slide to 14 
A--------------------------------------------------------|  still pick it; remember vibrato)
E--------------------------------------------------------|

E--------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------15-17-17b19r17-15-15h17-15-----|
G-11h12--\14--11h12--\14---------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------|  After this go straight 
A--------------------------------------------------------|  to the outro
E--------------------------------------------------------|


(If you don't play the lead, then you play this little instrumental over it until 
the last few lines of the chorus kick in)

  | G5   D   | A7sus4  Em7  D/F | G5   D   |

A7sus4  Em7      D/F      G5  D
   Why am I really here?
A7sus4  Em7      D/F      G5  D | Cadd9  G5     
   Why am I really here?


Outro:

|| D      | Dsus2   | D       | Dsus2   ||  Repeat a few times, then...

|| Dsus2  | G5      | Dsus2(#5)| G5     ||  REPEAT TO FADE
 


Cheers.
