Verse 1
-------

[A]Back when I was younger they were talkin' at me
Never listened to a word I sai[E]d
[A]Back when I was younger they were talkin' at me
Never listened to a word I [E]said
[A]Always yap yap yappin' and complainin' at me
Made me think I'd be better off [E]dead
[D]I don't [A]wanna [E]talk a[A]bout it
[D]I don't [A]wanna [E]hear no [A]lip
[D]Take your [A]share don't [E]shout a[A]bout it
[G]That's your lot re[D]member you're a [E]kid


Verse 2
-------

[E]They would always teach me that to swear was a sin
Always speak your mind but not a[A]loud
[E]Think of something that you wanna do with your life
Nothin' that you like that's not a[A]llowed
[D]I've no [A]time to [E]talk a[A]bout it
[D]All your [A]stupid [E]hopes and [A]dreams
[D]Get your [A]feet back [E]on the [A]ground son
[G]It's exams that [D]count not footb[E]all teams

Chorus
------

And I'm [D]runnin' at the [E]edge of their [A]world
They're [D]criticisin' [E]somethin' they just [A]can't understand
[D]Livin' on the [E]edge of their [A]town
And [D]I won't [E]be shot [A]down

Verse 3
-------

[A]Taught me to defend myself and to be a man
How to kick someone and run [E]away
[A]Gave me everythin' that any young man could need
But don't understand why I won't [E]stay
[D]Here's your [A]room and [E]here's your [A]records
[D]Here's your [A]home and [E]here you'll [A]stay
[D]Here's somew[A]here I [E]don't be[A]lieve in
[G]Wish someone would [D]take it all a[E]way
