F                              F7
When there's nowhere else to run
                           Bb
Is there room for one more son?
         F
One more son?
       Dm
If you can hold on,
       Bb                F
If you can hold on, hold on.


F
I want to stand up, I want to let go
                                        Bb
You know you know - no, you don't, you don't.
                                    F
I want to shine on in the hearts of men.

I want a meaning from the back of my broken hand.


F
Another head aches, another heart breaks.
                              Bb
I'm so much older than I can take.
                                     F
And my affection, well it comes and goes.

I need direction to perfection, no no no no


F
Help me out, yeah

You know you gotta help me out, yeah
                           Bb
Oh don't you put me on the back burner,
                           F
You know you gotta help me out, yeah.


F
And when there's nowhere else to run
                              Bb
Is there room for one more son?

These changes ain't changing me,
     F
The cold-hearted boy I used to be.


F
Yeah, you know you gotta help me out, yeah
                           Bb
Oh don't you put me on the back burner
                            F
You know you gotta help me out, yeah
                            Dm
You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah
                            Bb
You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah
                            F
You're gonna bring yourself down.


F
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier

I got soul, but I'm not a soldier
Bb
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier
F
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier -2x-
Dm
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier
Bb                               F
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier


F
Yeah, you know you gotta help me out, yeah
                           Bb
Oh don't you put me on the back burner
                            F
You know you gotta help me out, yeah
                            F
You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah

You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah
                           Bb
Oh don't you put me on the back burner,
                            F
You're gonna bring yourself down


Dm      Gm               Bb
Over and in, last call for sin.
                                     C
While everyone's lost, the battle is won
                                F
With all these things that I've done.
                                Dm
With all these things that I've done.
       Bb                   C           F
If you can hold on, if you can hold on...
