Verse 1:
 AC#mF#mC#m
 Nobody ever had a dream round here,
 AF#mC#F#m
but I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
 AC#mF#mC#m
 Nobody ever pulls the seams round here,
 AF#mC#F#m
but I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
 EF#mBmA
 I've got this energy beneath my feet
 DEC#D
like something underground's gonna come up and carry me,
 EF#mBmA
 I've got this sentimental heart that beats
 DEC#D
but I don't really mind and it's starting to get to me

Chorus 1:
 EC#F#m
 Now, "Why do you waste my time?"
 C#mDEAA/G#
Is the answer to the question on your mind  
 F#mC#m
And I'm sick of all my judges
 DEC#
so scared of what they'll find
 F#mC#m
But I know that I can make it
 DEA
As long as somebody takes me home,
 F#BmC#m
every now and then...  

 AC#mF#m
Oh, have you ever seen the lights?  
 AF#mC#m
 AC#mF#m
Have you ever seen the lights?  
 AF#mC#m

Verse 2: (Same chords as verse 1)
I took a shuttle on a shock-wave ride,
where people on the pen pull the trigger for accolades
I took a bullet, and I looked inside it
Running through my veins
An American masquerade
I still remember Grandma Dixie's wake,
I never really known anybody to die before
Red white and blue upon a birthday cake,
My brother, he was born on the fourth of the July...and that's all

Chorus 2: (same chords as other chorus 1)
"So why do you waste my time?"
Is the answer to the question on your mind
And I'm sick of all my judges,
so scared of letting me shine
But I know that I can make it,
as long as somebody takes me home...

 F#BmC#mDE

 AC#mF#mC#mD/F#DC#mE
You know see London, see Sam's Town
 AC#mF#mC#mD/F#DC#mE
 holds my hand and lets my hair down
 AC#mF#mC#mD/F#DC#mE
 Rolls that world right off my shoulder
 AC#mF#mC#mD/F#DC#mEF#
 see London, see Sam's Town now.
