                                 Am
I was born inside a small town, I've lost that state of mind
                                            F                                                             G
Learned to sing inside the Lord's house, but stopped at the age of nine
                                 Am
I forget when I get awards now the wave I had to ride
                                   F                                                   G
The paving stones I played upon, they kept me on the grind
                               Am
So blame it on the pain that blessed me with the life
                                               F                                                         G
Friends and family filled with envy when they should be filled with pride
                                       Am
And when the world's against me is when I really come alive
                                          F                                                 G
And everyday that Satan tempts me, I try to take it in my stride
                                     Am
You know that I've got whisky with white lines and smoke in my lungs
           F                                                    G
I think life has got to the point I know without it's no fun
               Am
I need to get in the right mind and clear myself up
                  F                                             G
Instead, I look in the mirror questioning what I've become
                       Am
I guess it's a stereotypical day for someone like me
                  F                              G
Without a nine-to-five job or an uni degree
           Am
To be caught up in the trappings of the industry
                                   F                                           G
They showed me the locked doors I find another use of key
And you'll see

F               C                       G
 I'm well aware of certain things that will destroy a man like me
F                    C                           E7         Am
 But with that said give me one more, higher
    F                    G                     Am
Another one to take the sting away
          F                    G                      Am
I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
                  F                G              Am
Save your lovin' arms for a rainy day
                     F                    G
And I'll find comfort in my pain Eraser

                                            Am
I used to think that nothing could be better than touring the world with my songs
                      F                                                  G
I chased the pictured perfect life, I think they painted it wrong
                   Am
I think that money is the root of evil and fame is hell
      F                                         G
Relationships and hearts you fixed, they break as well
        Am
And ain't nobody wanna see you down in the dumps
                          F                                            G
Because you're living your dream, man, this shit should be fun
                            Am
Please know that I'm not trying to preach like I'm Reverend Run
                    F                                              G
I beg you, don't be disappointed with the man I've become
                  Am
Our conversations with my father on the A14
      F                                              G
Age twelve telling me I've gotta chase those dreams
                Am
Now I'm playing for the people, dad, and they know me
                 F                                                  G
With my beat and small guitar wearing the same old jeans
                   Am
Wembley Stadium crowd two hundred and forty thou
                         F                                G
I may have grown up but I hope that Damien's proud
                   Am
And to the next generation, inspiration's allowed
                               F                                      G
The world may be filled with hate but keep erasing it now
Somehow

F               C                       G
 I'm well aware of certain things that will befall a man like me
F                    C                           E7         Am
 But with that said give me one more, higher
    F                    G                     Am
Another one to take the sting away
          F                    G                      Am
I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
                  F                G              Am
Save your lovin' arms for a rainy day
                     F                    G          Am
And I'll find comfort in my pain Eraser
                     F                    G          Am
And I'll find comfort in my pain Eraser
                     F                    G          
And I'll find comfort in my pain Eraser

Am
    I woke up this morning lookin' in the mirror
 F                                           G
    Thinkin' to myself that I should probably be thinner
Am
   The industry told me to look like them
          F                                          G
But I found my happiness in fried food for my dinner
   Am
I wish that she could have been my first time
          F                                          G
And I wish that I'd never took that first line
          Am
And I wish that every word in this verse rhymed
            F                                G                                   Am
But forgive me if it doesn't I wish that I could make peace with my older cousin
                                                    F                                            
I wish he didn't think that it was me when it wasn't
    G                                          Am
I wish I didn't love it when I'm high and my face feels buzzin'
                               F                                              
And the taste stays underneath my tongue, and
  G                                            Am
Wish that I had known what to do as a youngling
                                                    F                                           G
Wish I hadn't dropped out of school and missed every single party
                      Am
With that hardly matters now, man, does it?
                        F                                       G
Wish I had an answer to everything, but fuck it
              Am
I wish creatin' art didn't come with a budget
                                     F                                           
But while we're on the subject
                            G                                         Am
I wish my private life would have never gone public
                             Am
But that's the sacrifice that we make
                       F                             G
Spendin' my whole time high livin' life away

                 Am
I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
                       F                                    G
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
                      Am
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
                            F                                           G
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish
      Am
I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
                     F                                      G
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
                      Am
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
                            F                                           G

                Am
I wish my family and friends, they stay healthy
               F                                               G
I wish that love was a currency and the whole world was wealthy
    Am
I found myself late night wishin' on a star
F                                          G
 Everyday I wish I'd never broken a heart, uh
Am
   And I wish I'd never run through
           F                                                G
Every woman that I loved that kept my life and what it's come to
Am
   I wish I was the role model you looked up to
F                                             G
  If I told my fans the things I did they'd say, "Fuck you"
Am
   I wish I was home more
                                    F                                        G
I wish my team could see their kids on their birthdays, but yo, we're on tour
Am
   And I wish I'd grow more, wish I told more
             F                                           G
People that I love 'em but it's in the music that I'm known for
Am
  And I wish he never got cancer
                 F                                                    G
And if I smoke a pack a day, well, does that make me a wanker?
Am
  Oh yes, I guess it does, and we're still stressing 'cause
F                                G
  Every day this shit gets the best of us
Am
  Usin' my balance on razor blades
                        F                                 G
Spendin' my whole time high wishing life would wait

                 Am
I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
                       F                                    G
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
                      Am
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care

I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

I'm singin' this is how we're livin' down here
                     F                                      G
Sittin' on the edge, lookin' out without fear
                      Am
Yeah, we got drama but you know we don't care
                            F                                           G
I wanna see you sing it, put your hands in the air, one wish

               Am
I'm using jumpers for goalposts, cigarettes for throat cold
F                                            G
 Mum sayin', "Don't smoke," no, I don't listen, I got
Am
Love for a ghost note, shows on the gold coast
F                                          G
  People that I don't know share the same vision
  Am
I find truth in the hard times and words that aren't mine
  F                                            G
Tryin' to find a love with a compatible star sign
Am
Sometimes I can't write, sentences can't rhyme
F                                    G
 Starin' at my notepad quick, I'm tryin' to find mine
Am
 Shit quick before I hit it again
                    F                                        G
Surrounded in the industry by all these ignorant men
               Am
And who knew that I'd be paid just to pick up a pen
        F                                                   G
Just let me hit the studio when we can rip it again
      Am
I'm a competitive dick with an adrenaline kick
                  F                                                  G
My daddy told me, "Work hard and you can never be shit"
               Am
I've seen all my heroes dethroned except my dad
 F                                                       G
Set back here reminiscing 'bout the times we had
        Am
One wish
