Bb Eb/Bb Eb/Bb

Up here on the ledge

Bb Eb/Bb Eb/Bb

I'm gettin' pushed to the edge

Ab/Bb Eb/Bb Bb Eb/Bb Eb/Bb

People line up behind me to step into my shoes


Up here in the precipice

I'm gettin' close to my nemesis

People fighting each other to jump into my blues


Bb Dm7/A


Gm Cm Cm

There's a young kid inside me somewhere

Gm Ab Bb

He stays up all night, a vampire that never dies

Eb/Bb Bb Bb Dm/A

With the blood and the moon in his eyes

Gm Cm Cm

I hear his voice when I'm comin' down

Gm Ab Bb

Sleep is for fools who never see the sunrise

Eb/Bb Bb

Who never get to live twice


[intro pattern]


I was a face in a magazine

When you were still playin' with your plasticine,

Now you're doggin' my tail, ridin' the slipstream,

You can take the fans and the enemies

The little girls who squeeze and tease

Then pass on their social disease

Go get your penicillin.


[intro pattern]



I know you young and dumb


I know where you're coming from


Don't know where you're goin' to


But I been there same as you

Bb F

You're running out of ideas


And new hats to try on


I know you middle age

Same song, different page,

I know what you're goin' through

Made the same mistakes as you,

All you want is some hope

And a shoulder to cry on.




There's a stranger inside me somewhere

Bb C

That shadow behind me don't even look like me


An echoed apology

He's a wolf in sheep disguise

I wake up in places I don't even recognize

Pretender in paradise


[intro pattern]



It's your turn, step up and take it


If you've got the guts to hang on you can make it

Bb F/Bb F/Bb

Come on

Bb F/Bb F/Bb

Come on

F# Bbm7 Bbm7 F#

Come on

Bbm7 F# F# Bb Bb

Ooooh, take it
