Take It Back

Dm Ed Sheeran Dm Vote rhythm
[Dm]I'm not a rapper; I'm a singer with a flow I've got a habit of spitting quicker lyrics you know
You found me rippi[Bb]ripping the writtens out of the pages they sit in
and I[C]I never want to get bitten because plagiarism is hidden
Watch how[Dm]how I sit on the rhythm, prisoner with
a vision Signs of LA, but didn't listen to any criticism
[Bb]Thought you knew but you didn't so perk your ears up and listen
[C]Studio with a system and you could say that I'm driven
[Dm]And now it's on to the next saga we drink the best lager, I never tried to win you over
like your stepfather
[Bb]I do my own thing now, and get respect after
[C]And I'm avoiding cocaine like it was Get Carter
[Dm]For four years I never had a place to stay but it's safe to say that it kept me grounded
like a paperweight
[Bb]At 16 years old I moved out of my home
[C]I was Macy Gray I tried to say goodbye and I choked
[Dm]And we've been sleeping at the subway station,
sleeping with a movie star and adding to the population
[Bb]Not my imagination, I don't want to relax
[C]But would it hurt your reputation,if I put it on wax? So take it back now...
[Dm]Come on and take it back no[Bb]now
[C]Come on and take it back now
[Dm]Dont you fade into the back now [Bb] [C]
[Dm]Take it back with the rhythm and blues and my back pack I'll be singing the news,
trying to act like Jack Black when I bring them to school
[Bb]I'll make a beat with my feet by just singing a loop,
[C]bringing the lyrics to prove that I can fit in these shoes,
[Dm]and keeping the truth through the vocal booth, stars burst out on the scene like an opal fruit,
[Bb]they try and take aim like beckham when he goes to shoot,
[C]but then again that's what they're supposed to do,
and [Dm]I'm supposed to be calm,I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm, whispering everything
that happens is from now on,
[Bb]I'll be willing to start again at the end of the song,
[C]still they think I handled it wrong,
[Dm]but then I never had an enemy, except for NME, but I'll be selling twice as many copies
as the magazines will ever be,
[Bb]and got me spectacles ahead of me and festival fees,
[C]to help me with a Dalmatian, no pedigree
[Dm]singing for the masses, rubber dinghy rapids,keep this rapping a habit and keep on
passioning magic,
[Bb]I'm battling for the respect,
[C]I don't know if I'll have it, this songs from the
heart, grabbing the plaque I'll take it back now
[Dm]Come on and take it back no[Bb]now
[C]Come on and take it back now
[Dm]Dont you fade into the back now [Bb] [C]
(Same chord progression continues)
Take it back now
[Dm]I don't ever want to be perfect, Cause I'm a singer that you never want to see shirtless
[Bb]I accept the fact that someone has to win the worst-dressed,
[C]Taking my first steps into the scene, giving me focus
[Dm]Putting on a brave face, like Timothy Dalton,considering a name change,thinking it was hopeless
[Bb]Rhyming over recordings Avoiding tradition
[C]Cause every day some lyrics and a melody can be written
[Dm]Now absence can make your heart ache But drinking absinthe can change your mind-state, vividly,
I need to let my liver be
[Bb]And I say it again,
[C]Living life on the edge,with a closed hand full of friends
[Dm]Is good advice from a manwho took his life on the road with me
And I hope to see him blowing up globally
[Bb]Cause that's how it's supposed to be screaming out vocally
[C]Might seem totally impossible achieving life's dreams
[Dm]But, but I just write schemesI'm never having a stylist, giving me tight jeans
[Bb]Madison Square Garden is where I might be, But more likely,
[C]You'll find me in the back room of a dive bar with my mates
[Dm]Having a pint with McDaid, Discussing records we made And every single second knowing
that we'll never betray
[Bb]The way we were raised Remembering our background
[C]Sat down That's how we put it out; it's time to take it back now
[Hook] (x2)
[Dm]Come on and take it back no[Bb]now
[C]Come on and take it back now
[Dm]Dont you fade into the back now [Bb] [C]
[Dm]My dreams keep me awake at night, Written in rhymes, and lies, deliver the hype
Am I just living the lie
[Bb]With this you must know that the number's just sold woah
[C]Will keep me going through the tough times, dream with me
[Dm]We forget 90 per cent of it when we wake But the other 10 per cent it never fades
[Bb]Dreaming dreams, day to day goals Stay awake loads,
try to mak[C]make the cut like the paper or razor blade,
never give [Dm]up And just remember just to hold out more A couple years ago I couldn't just control
that thought
You'd find me b[Bb]buskin' on the street when it was cold outdoors
And now I'm sw[C]sweating on the stage With the sold out tours
Writing l[Dm]love songs for the sake of it never to make a
hit, You can't fake talent and work ethic just to make
it quick
[Bb]I'm not a rapper I'm a singer, I just take the piss and
[C]Most of these other guys are guys that pose His little sister has to
[Dm]babysit, that's just a way it is Dreams you
own,just set your goalsAnd have the utmost faith in it
tread your own [Bb]path You'll never make it as a follower,
[C]you'll never know where you will go or where you will be tomorrow [Dm]
