Intro: Em C G Am

Verse:
Em                             C
I know that I'm running out of time
           G             Am  
-I want it all, mmm, mmm-
        Em                                  C
And I'm wishing they'd stop tryna turn me off
         G              Am
I want it all, mmm, mmm
         G                  C                G
And I'm walking on a wire, trying to go higher
G                                         Am 
Feels like I'm surrounded by clowns and liars
G                          C
Even when I get it all the way
           G
-I want it all, mmm, mmm-

Pre-Chorus:
Am              Em       C       G    
We came here to run it, run it, run it
Am              Em       C        G
We came here to run it, run it, run it

Chorus:
          Em                     C
Just like fire, burning out the way
                 G
If I can light the world up for just one day
Am         Em                     C
Watch this madness, colorful charade
         G
No one can be just like me any way
Am         Em                     C
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
            G
I'mma disappear when they come for me
Am           Em                       C
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
           G
No one can be just like me any way
Am        Em     C   G         Am
Just like fire,         uh...

Verse:
   Em                                C                  G             Am
And people like to laugh at you cause they are all the same -mmm, mmm-
             Em                              C                 G      Am
See I would rather we just go our different way than play the game
       Em                      C
And no matter the weather, we can do it better
G                                   Am
You and me together forever and ever
Em                             C               G   Am
We don't have to worry about a thing about a thing

Pre-Chorus:
Am              Em       C       G    
We came here to run it, run it, run it
Am              Em       C       G
We came here to run it, run it, run it

Chorus:
          Em                     C
Just like fire, burning out the way
                   G
If I can light the world up for just one day
Am         Em                     C
Watch this madness, colorful charade
           G
No one can be just like me any way
Am         Em                     C
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
            G
I'mma disappear when they come for me
Am           Em                       C
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
           G
No one can be just like me any way
Am        Em    C     G
Just like fire, fire, fire
-Running, running, running-
Am             Em       C        G
We can get 'em running, running, running

Bridge:
Am    Em 
So look I came here to run it

Just cause nobody's done it
             Em
Y'all don't think I can run it

But look, I've been here, I've done it
   Em
Impossible? Please

Watch, I do it with ease
          Em 
You just gotta believe

Come on, come on with me
Em 
Oh, what's a girl to do?
-What, what!?-
Em
Oh, what's a girl to do?
-What, what!?-
Em 
Oh, what's a girl to do?
-What, what!?-
Em
Oh, what's a girl to do?

Chorus:
          Em                     C
Just like fire, burning out the way
                   G
If I can light the world up for just one day
Am         Em                     C
Watch this madness, colorful charade
           G
No one can be just like me any way


          Em                     C
Just like fire, burning out the way
                   G
If I can light the world up for just one day
Am         Em                     C
Watch this madness, colorful charade
           G
No one can be just like me any way
Am         Em                     C
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
            G
I'mma disappear when they come for me
Am           Em                       C
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
           G
No one can be just like me any way
Am        Em    C     G
Just like fire, fire, fire
-Running, running, running-


Am        Em    C     G       Am 
Just like fire!

  1. I love this!

  2. I’d try using a D chord, sounds better in my opinion

  3. clare oldfield

    hey guys i just got a ukulele for christmas and it is awsome i live in muscutine iowa

  4. This is amazing but the Am chord doesn’t sound right with the lyrics. Any advice?

  5. It’s “we can get ’em running”

  6. Frost-Bite

    Hello peoplez!!!

  7. The lyric I want it all is wrong. “And I’m wishing they’d stop tryna turn me off , I want it all” Instead it’s “I want it on.” I just saying.

  8. Hey chord A should be turned into chord D …?
