Am                              G
How am I gonna get myself back home?
   Am     G      F
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay
Am                              G
How am I gonna get myself back home?
   Am     G      F
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay


Am                     F
We are the last people standing
      Am-G-F
At the end of the night   
Am                     F
We are the greatest pretenders
       Am-G-F
In the cold morning light


F                     Am
This is just another night
    C                 F
And we've had many of them
F                        Am
To the morning we're cast out
      C                     F
But I know I'll land here again


Am                              G
How am I gonna get myself back home?
   Am     G      F
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay
Am                              G
How am I gonna get myself back home?
   Am     G      F
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay


There's a light in the bedroom
But it's dark
Scattered around on the floor
All my thoughts

This is just another night
And we've had many of them
To the morning we're cast out
But I know I'll land here again

How am I gonna get myself back home?
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay
How am I gonna get myself back home?
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay


F             Am
The birds are mocking me
     C          F
They call to be heard
F               Am
The birds are mocking me
     C          F
They curse my return


How am I gonna get myself back home?
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay
How am I gonna get myself back home?
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay

How am I gonna get myself back home?
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay
How am I gonna get myself back home?
Ay-ay, ay-ay, ay-ay, I'm lost

    I absolutely love this song. The simple chords make it easy for me, a beginner, learn how to play. Bastille is one of my most favorite bands, and this song is beautiful. I’m glad I know how to play it now.

  3. I love this song but is so hard to play on uke using guitar chords.. capo 5 makes things pretty squishy! But this version is really good; simple chords and sounds great!
