Eb  Ab -x2-

Verse:
Eb
  Caught in a cold sweat

Stuck splitting hairs

and drinking too much
          Cm              Ab
I'm on my way to striking out
Eb
  Go to sleep with the pressure
            Bb  
of everyone watching and waiting

They're yours for the taking
    Cm              Ab
but I still have my doubts

Pre-Chorus:
  Bb
Before you ask which way to go
  Ab
remember where you've been

Chorus:
      Eb
Stay awake get a

grip and get out
       Ab
You're safe from the

weight of the world
     Eb
Just take a second to
            Ab
set things straight
        Cm
I'll be fine even though
               Ab
I'm not always right

I can count on the
       Eb
sun to shine

Dedication takes
  Ab
a lifetime
    Bb
But dreams only

last for a night

Verse:
Eb
  Figure it out

Boy you're tripping so

pull yourself together
          Cm
Or you'll wash
            Ab
up like the rest
Eb
This ship is sinking

I'm thinking I'm done for

I'll watch as the sails

disappear under water
      Cm             Ab
Cause I'm no captain yet

Pre-Chorus:
  Bb
Before you ask which way to go
  Ab
remember where you've been

Chorus:
      Eb
Stay awake get a

grip and get out
       Ab
You're safe from the

weight of the world
     Eb
Just take a second to
            Ab
set things straight
        Cm
I'll be fine even though
               Ab
I'm not always right

I can count on the
       Eb
sun to shine

Dedication takes
  Ab
a lifetime
    Bb
But dreams only

last for a night

Bridge:
Eb
  Believe you me

I'll give them everything

I'd tell them anything

To show them everything
Eb
  Believe you me

I'll give them everything
Gm
  I'd tell them anything
Ab
  To show them everything
      Eb
Cause you ain't the only

ones who want to live it up

You ain't the only ones
Cm
You ain't the only ones

who want to live it up
Ab
You ain't the only ones
Eb
You ain't the only ones

who want to live it up
Cm
You ain't the only ones
Ab
You ain't the only ones

who want to live it up

You ain't the only ones

Eb

Chorus:
      Eb
Stay awake get a

grip and get out
       Ab
You're safe from the

weight of the world
     Eb
Just take a second to
            Ab
set things straight
        Cm
I'll be fine even though
               Ab
I'm not always right

I can count on the
       Eb
sun to shine

Dedication takes
  Ab
a lifetime
    Bb
But dreams only

last for a night
