Ed Sheeran - Take it back

Using barre chords will sound better! youtube.com/phoebewhalley Verse 1
Dm I'm not a rapper; I'm a singer with a flow I've got a habit for spitting
Quicker lyrics you know
You found me A#ripping the writtens Out of the pages they sit in I never Cwant to get bitten 'Cause plagiaC/C#rism is hidden Watch how I Dmsit on the rhythm
Prisoner with a vision Signs of a label, but didn't listen To any criticism
Thought you A#knew but you didn't So perk your ears up and listen StuCdio is a system And you could C/C#say that I'm driven And now it'sDm on to the next saga
We drink the best lager I never tried to win you over Like your stepfather
A# I do my own thing now, and get respect after C And I'm avoiding the C/C#'caine 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
At A#16 years old, yeah I moved out of my home I was CMacy Gray I tried to say goodC/C#bye and I choked I went from Dmsleeping at the subway station
To sleeping with a Movie star and adding to the population
Not my imagiA#nation, I don't wanna relax Would it hurt your repuCtation If I put it on C/C#wax?
I'll take it back now Chorus
Dm Mmmm cA#'mon and take it back love, C C'mon and take it C/C#back for uDms Don't you A#fade into the back love C NC/C#o
Verse 2
I take it back with the Dmrhythm and blues With my rap pack I'll be singing the news,
Trying to act like Jack Black when I bring 'em to school
A#I'll make a beat with my feet by just hitting a loop, CBringing the lyrics to prove C/C#that I can fit in these shoes, Dm I give you the truth through the vocal booth,
Stars burst out on the scene like an opal fruit,
They try to A#take aim like Beckham when he goes to shoot, But then Cagain that's what they're supposed to C/C#do, And I'm supposed to be Dmcalm,
I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm, Whispering everything that happens is from now on,
I'll be A#ready to start again by the end of the song, Still they're Cclaiming that I handled it C/C#wrong, But then I never had an Dmenemy, except for NME,
But I'll be selling twice as many copies as the magazines will ever be,
A# With only spectacles ahead of me and festival fees, C I'm healthier than a C/C#Dalmatian on Pedigree, Dm Singing for the masses,
Rubber dinghy rapids, I keep this rapping a habit
And keep on passioning A#magic, I'm battling for respect,
I don't know if I'll have it,
C This songs from the heart, C/C# Cover the planet I'll take it back now
Chorus
Dm Mmmm cA#'mon and take it back love, C C'mon and take it C/C#back for uDms Don't you A#fade into the back love C NC/C#o
Verse 3
Dm Now I don't ever want to be perfect, Cause I'm a singer that you
Never want to see shirtless
And I A#accept the fact that someone's gotta win worst-dressed, Taking my Cfirst steps into the scene, C/C#Giving me focus DmPutting on a brave face, like Timothy Dalton
Considering a name change, Thinking it was hopeless
A#Rhyming over recordings Avoiding tradition Cause every Cday some lyrics And a C/C#melody can be written Now Dmabsence can make your heart break
But drinking absinthe can change your mind-state, vividly, I need to let my liver be
A# And I say it again, Living life on the Cedge, With a closed hand full of C/C#friends Is good advice from a Dmman
Who took his life on the road with me And I hope to see him blowing up globally
Cause that's how it's A#supposed to be I'm screaming out vocally It might seem Ctotally impossible AchC/C#ieving life's dreams Dm But, but I just write schemes
I'm never having a stylist, giving me tight jeans
Madison Square AGarden is where I might be But more likely, You'll Cfind me in the C/C#back Room of a dive Dmbar with my mates
Having a pint with McDaid Discussing records we made And every single second knowing That we'll never betray
The Away we were raised Remembering our background
Sat down
CThat's how we plan it out; C/C#It's time to take it back now
Chorus
Dm Mmmm cA#'mon and take it back love, C C'mon and take it C/C#back for uDms Don't you A#fade into the back love C NC/C#o Dm Mmmm cA#'mon and take it back love, C C'mon and take it C/C#back for uDms Don't you A#fade into the back love C NC/C#o
