 [VERSE] 
         Ebm                            B 
 Well, grey clouds wrapped 'round the town like elastic
   Db                            Gb         Gbmaj7
 Cars stood like toys made of Taiwanese plastic
        Ebm 
 The boy laughed
  B                    Db Dbsus4 Db
 Danced around in the rain

 
            Ebm 
 While laundrettes cleaned clothes
       B 
 High heels rubbed toes
     Db                        Gb         Gbmaj7
 Puddles splashed huddles of bus stop crows
   Ebm                               B 
 Dressed in their suits and their boots
                             Db Dbsus4 Db
 Well, they all looked the same

 [PRE-CHORUS]  
     B                       Db 
 I took myself down to the cafe to find all
       Gb        Gbmaj7         Ebm        Db
 The boys lost in books and crackling vinyl
      B 
 And carved out a poem
   Db                     Gb Gb7
 Above the urinal that read

 [CHORUS] 
            B 
 Don't you cry for the lost
  Db 
 Smile for the living
  Gb            Gbmaj7
 Get what you need and
  Ebm                 Db 
 Give what you're given
 B                            Db 
 Life's for the living, so live it
                      Gb Abm Gb Db Gb  Gbmaj7 Ebm Abm Gb Dbsus4 Db
 Or you're better off dead
 
 [VERSE] 
              Ebm                      B 
 While the evening pulled the moon out of it's packet
   Db                               Gb         Gbmaj7
 Stars shone like buttons on an old man's jacket
       Ebm 
 We needed a nail
           B                           Db  Dbsus4 Db
 But we tacked it 'til it fell off the wall

              Ebm 
 Yeah, while pigeon's pecked trains
    B
 Sparks flew like planes
     Db                               Gb     Gbmaj7
 The rain showed the rainbows in the oil stains
          Ebm 
 And we all had new iPhones
      B                    Db Dbsus4 Db
 But no one had no one to call

 [PRE-CHORUS]  
 B
 And I stumbled down
          Db 
 To the stomach of the town
            Gb                 Gbmaj7
 Where the widow takes memories
      Ebm       Db 
 To slowly drown
         B 
 With a hand to the sky
         Db                    Gb Gb7
 And a mist in her eye, she said

 Life's for the living, so live it
                      Ebm Bbm B Gb Gbmaj7 Ebm Bbm Db

 Or you're better off dead

 [BRIDGE] 
            Ebm
 Well, I'm sick of this town
        B
 This blind man's forage
       Db 
 They take your dreams down
          Gb                   Gbmaj7
 And they stick 'em in the storage
          Ebm 
 You can have 'em back, son
              B                           Db Dbsus4 Db
 When you've paid off your mortgage and loans

 
      Ebm 
 Ah, hell with this place
       B 
 I'll go it my own way
       Db 
 I'll stick out my thumb
        Gb                Gbmaj7
 And I trudge down the highway
    Ebm 
 Someday, someone
            B            Db Dbsus4 Db
 Must be going my way, home

 [PRE-CHORUS]  
                   B 
 'Til then I'll make my bed
           Db
 From a disused car
            Gb           Gbmaj7
 With a mattress of leaves
          Ebm       Db 
 And a blanket of stars
            B                       Db 
 And I'll stitch the words into my heart
                       Gb Gb7
 With a needle and thread

 [CHORUS:Passenger & Foy Vance]

 Give what you're given
           B                           Db 
 You know life's for the living, so live it
                       Gb Gb7
 Or you're better off dead

           B 
 So don't cry for the lost

 Get what you need and
  Ebm                Db 
 Give what you're given

 Or you're better off dead

 [OUTRO]

 Give what you're given
           B                         Db
