Verse 1
-------
A
Back when I was younger they were talkin' at me
                              E
Never listened to a word I said
A
Back when I was younger they were talkin' at me
                           E
Never listened to a word I said
A
Always yap yap yappin' and complainin' at me
                                E
Made me think I'd be better off dead
D       A     E     A
I don't wanna talk about it
D       A     E       A
I don't wanna hear no lip
D         A           E      A
Take your share don't shout about it
G                 D               E
That's your lot remember you're a kid


Verse 2
-------
E
They would always teach me that to swear was a sin
                                A
Always speak your mind but not aloud
E
Think of something that you wanna do with your life
                                  A
Nothin' that you like that's not allowed
D       A       E     A
I've no time to talk about it
D        A      E         A
All your stupid hopes and dreams
D        A         E      A
Get your feet back on the ground son
G               D              E
It's exams that count not football teams

Chorus
------
        D              E             A
And I'm runnin' at the edge of their world
        D           E                   A
They're criticisin' somethin' they just can't understand
D             E             A
Livin' on the edge of their town
    D       E       A
And I won't be shot down

Verse 3
-------
A
Taught me to defend myself and to be a man
                            E
How to kick someone and run away
A
Gave me everythin' that any young man could need
                                 E
But don't understand why I won't stay
D           A        E           A
Here's your room and here's your records
D           A        E           A
Here's your home and here you'll stay
D           A      E       A
Here's somewhere I don't believe in
G                  D            E
Wish someone would take it all away

{Repeat chorus}
