Intro: A  Dbm D  Gbm E Dbm B

A
 Well I've tried to live like
                 Dbm       D 
the way that you wanted me to.
       Gbm         E
Never needed the proof,
     Dbm           B
just followed the rules.
A
 I pick up all the pieces 
               Dbm     D 
and I move my feet as fast as I can.
            Gbm      E     
I'm always falling behind, 
      Dbm          B
just float in the lines.
A                       
 You want more and ambition's
          Dbm      D 
taken its toll on you.
              Gbm     E      Dbm              B
Well hey your confidence is fading with your youth.


D 
 And you say
      A
That dreamers always get what they desire
D 
 Well I've found
    A
The more I want, the less I've got

D  
 Is this the life you've been waiting for?
A                              D 
 Or are you hoping that you'll be
                               A
Where you want with a little more?


A  Dbm D 
       You're coughing blood again
                Gbm           E
I know 'cause I clean up the mess
      Dbm      B
Every now and then
AA 
  Fold the line along the seam
                  Dbm     D                  
Force a smile and never say what you mean
              Gbm       E
You're in the promised land
           Dbm     B
In someone else's dream
A
  If you want more and you'll get there
                Dbm      D 
Throw a quarter in the well
      Gbm          E
It's okay, you're fine
  Dbm       B
Ambition's not a crime


D 
 And you say
      A
That dreamers always get what they desire
D 
 Well I've found
    A
The more I want, the less I've got

D  
 Is this the life you've been waiting for?
A                              D 
 Or are you hoping that you'll be
                               A
Where you want with a little more?
D 
Well, Ask yourself


A
 Is this the life you've been waiting for?
D 
 Well, ask yourself
A
 Is this the life you've been waiting for
D 
 Well ask yourself


D  
 Is this the life you've been waiting for?
A                              D 
 Or are you hoping that you'll be
                               A
Where you want with a little more?
D 
Well, Ask yourself

  1. I think an E would fit well inbetween the D and A in the chorus…just let it fall into the rhythm of the chord changes. Otherwise, well done! :)

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
