Verse 1:
Ab                 Bb7    
 I've given up on giving up slowly
Db    
 I'm blending in so you won't even know me
Fm7              Eb                   Bb7       Ab     Db    
 Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
Ab              Bb7                     
 This one last bullet you mention
Db    
 Is this my one last shot at redemption
Fm7             Eb                        Bb7      Ab    Db    
 Coz I know to live you must give your life away


Pre-Chorus:
               Fm7              Db             Ab       Eb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Fm7                Db                   Ab                Eb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Fm7           Db                      Ab             Eb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Bb7                                           Db    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Eb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
Ab Eb             Db        Eb     
 I gotta get out of here
       Ab                Eb                Db               Eb     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
Ab Eb              Db            Eb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Fm7              Eb                    Bb7            Eb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Verse 2:
Ab                 Bb7    
 I've given up on doing this alone now
Db    
 Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how
Fm7                 Eb                      Bb7      Ab     Db    
 You've told me the way, and I'm trying to get there
Ab                Bb7    
 And this life sentence that I'm serving
Db    
 I admit that I'm every bit deserving
Fm7                     Eb                      Bb7       Ab      Db    
 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair


Pre-Chorus:
               Fm7              Db             Ab       Eb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Fm7                Db                   Ab                Eb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Fm7           Db                      Ab             Eb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Bb7                                           Db    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Eb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:

Ab Eb              Db         Eb     
 I gotta get out of here
         Ab                     Eb              Db                     Eb    
 Coz I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah
Ab Eb             Db          Eb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Fm7              Eb                    Db                  Eb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Bridge:
Fm7             Db    
 I am a hostage to my own humanity
Ab                             Bb7    
 Self-detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
Fm7                         Db    
 And all I'm asking is for you to do what you can with me
Ab                           Bb7    
 But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

 

Pre-Chorus:
               Fm7              Db             Ab       Eb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Fm7                Db                   Ab                Eb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Fm7           Db                      Ab             Eb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Bb7                                           Db    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Eb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
Ab Eb             Db        Eb     
 I gotta get out of here
       Ab                Eb                Db               Eb     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
Ab Eb              Db            Eb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Fm7              Eb                    Bb7            Eb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape

Ab           Bb7            Db    
 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win
 Fm7           Eb                     Db     
 Oh how we regret those things we do
Ab         Bb7            Db                         Fm7    
 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
    Eb                   Db     
 Oh-o, but so were you

Outro:
   So    were    you 
    Eb        Fm7      Ab
