On An Island

INTRO: G	Em	C	D	G	Em	C  D		G


G	     Em		C	D
While we float on this ... sea
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
We wear our colours so heroically
G	     Em		C	D 
Were only living In GMT
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
Everyone else is just a refugee

Am			D
Ah I wake up, I'll take up
F			G
It's about time for a shake up
Am				D			F		  
When pride is blind you know were only stuck in second gear

Am			D
So live up; never give up
F			G
It's about time to deliver
Am			D
Without the man who drives you ...
F			
You know I'm staying in

G	     Em		C	D
Were on an island in the sea
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
Were on and island we never leave
G	     Em		C	D
Were on an island in the sea
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
Were on and island we never leave

G	     Em		C	D
Well we feel subsequent resent
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
And overseas we like to represent
G	     Em		C	D
Cause nothing but embarrassment
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
We had nothing but our good intent

Am		D
Ah I wake up, I'll take up
F				G
It's about time for a shake up
Am			D			F			   
I'm talking loud; that doesn't mean you can't be understood
Am			D
So live up; never give up
F			G
It's about time to deliver
Am			  D			F			
I think it's about time we got to meet the neighborhood

G	     Em		C	D
Were on an island in the sea
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
Were on and island we never leave
G	     Em		C	D
Were on an island in the sea
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
Were on and island we never leave

G	     Em		C	D
Were on an island in the sea
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
Were on and island we never leave
G	     Em		C	D
Were on an island in the sea
G		   Em	      C  D	  G
Were on and island we never leave

nice work, but playing it i think the 'bridge' (the "wake up...take up" bit), is slightly off.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is what I could make out - tho I might be wrong:

Am D
Ah I wake up, I'll take up
Am D
It's about time for a shake up
Em Am C D
When pride is blind you know were only stuck in second gear

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also the chorus seems to return to the G rather than going to D, so it would be more like:

G Em C G
Were on an island in the sea
G Em C D G
Were on and island we never leave

(And possibly miss out the C in the second and fourth lines)
