Verse 1:
A                 B7    
 I've given up on giving up slowly
D    
 I'm blending in so you won't even know me
Gbm7              E                   B7       A     D    
 Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
A              B7                     
 This one last bullet you mention
D    
 Is this my one last shot at redemption
Gbm7             E                        B7      A    D    
 Coz I know to live you must give your life away


Pre-Chorus:
               Gbm7              D             A       E    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Gbm7                D                   A                E    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Gbm7           D                      A             E    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            B7                                           D    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                E       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
A E             D        E     
 I gotta get out of here
       A                E                D               E     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
A E              D            E    
 I gotta get out of here
         Gbm7              E                    B7            E                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Verse 2:
A                 B7    
 I've given up on doing this alone now
D    
 Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how
Gbm7                 E                      B7      A     D    
 You've told me the way, and I'm trying to get there
A                B7    
 And this life sentence that I'm serving
D    
 I admit that I'm every bit deserving
Gbm7                     E                      B7       A      D    
 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair


Pre-Chorus:
               Gbm7              D             A       E    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Gbm7                D                   A                E    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Gbm7           D                      A             E    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            B7                                           D    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                E       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:

A E              D         E     
 I gotta get out of here
         A                     E              D                     E    
 Coz I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah
A E             D          E    
 I gotta get out of here
         Gbm7              E                    D                  E                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Bridge:
Gbm7             D    
 I am a hostage to my own humanity
A                             B7    
 Self-detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
Gbm7                         D    
 And all I'm asking is for you to do what you can with me
A                           B7    
 But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

 

Pre-Chorus:
               Gbm7              D             A       E    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Gbm7                D                   A                E    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Gbm7           D                      A             E    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            B7                                           D    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                E       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
A E             D        E     
 I gotta get out of here
       A                E                D               E     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
A E              D            E    
 I gotta get out of here
         Gbm7              E                    B7            E                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape


Outro - on piano -:
Em7 D C    - 1x for acoustic version, 2x for original version -

A           B7            D    
 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win
 Gbm7           E                     D     
 Oh how we regret those things we do
A         B7            D                         Gbm7    
 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
    E                   D     
 Oh-o, but so were you

Outro:
   So    were    you
