Verse:
Am
Its all there underneath 
                                    
everything we love and need 
        Dm    Em
you and I
Am 
Look around you will see 
                                          
broken minds and shattered dreams 
         Dm    Em
wasted time
Am
But I don't mind losing sleep
                                              
squeezing through the cracks between 
          Dm     Em
day and night

Chorus:
              Dm           
Its such a longshot 
                Em
everything that we've got 
                F
just living on this rock 
                  Am
surrounded by the sea 
           Dm
With our shoes off 
             Em
balancing on rooftops
                      F
you put your faith in preachers 
                  Am
I put my faith in me

Verse:
      Am
Given time we could have seen 

all the things he could have been
         Dm    Em
if you tried 
Am
But he settled for the english dream

bathed in mediocrity
           Dm      Em
stood in line
Am
But thats not enough for me

I will kick and scream 
          Dm     Em
tell you why

Chorus:
              Dm           
Its such a longshot 
                Em
everything that we've got 
                F
just living on this rock 
                  Am
surrounded by the sea 
           Dm
With our shoes off 
             Em
balancing on rooftops
                      F
you put your faith in preachers 
                  Am
I put my faith in me

Bridge:
       G         F         Am
I dont want to waste your time
       G         F         Am          F
I dont want to waste your time

Chorus:
              F           
Its such a longshot 
                G
everything that we've got 
                F
just living on this rock 
                  Am
surrounded by the sea 
           F
With our shoes off 
             G
balancing on rooftops
                      F
you put your faith in preachers 
                  Am
I put my faith in me

Chorus:
              F           
Its such a longshot 
                G
everything that we've got 
                F
just living on this rock 
                  Am
surrounded by the sea 
           F
With our shoes off 
             G
balancing on rooftops
                      F
you put your faith in preachers 
                  Am
I put my faith in me
