Born In The Eighties Chords

Am                C             G          C
I grew up in the 90's at least that's what I tried
C           G       Am       G
looking for ways to be satisfied
Am            C       G          C
I went to San Diego to try out my luck
C                   G          Am              G
came back 12 months later and again I was stuck
F             C        G           C
I felt like a goldfish stuck in a bowl
      F           C              G          F
I was waiting for something that I could control
Am      C         G      C
after 2000 no longer a kid
C                G       Am              G
the world didn't end but something else did
Am                  C             G   C
when my father takes off I'm already 19
C           G          Am           G
he wasn't as happy as I thought he seemed
   F          C            G             C
if this is my screenplay I don't like my role
F             C                  G        F
these are the things that you just can't control
       Am           C            G    C
although I feel a lot older I'm just 23
C                     G       Am             G
if you're looking for answers don't come to me
Am            C           G          C
instead of a future I've got a guitar
C                 G    Am          G
but dreaming out loud won't get me far
[ Tab from: ]
F                C     G           C
still I feel I'm ready for rock'n roll
F               C           G          F
there might be something that I can control
       Am          C    G        C
by the time I hit 30 I'll have enough
C            G       Am          G
of being a twenty something in love
Am                      C          G            C
my friends will all be married or they will be gone
 C               G     Am            G
I'll still be wondering what's going on
   F               C          G             C
if that's what it takes then I'll sell my soul
F             C               G           F
as long as there's something that I can control

    Am             C          G   C
one day I'll wake up and I'll be 38
C           G   Am           G
doing the things I used to hate
Am            C                  G          C
the trick to forget the bigger picture is when
C                              G   Am              G
you look at everything in close-up as often as you can
F          C      G           C
our revolution is covered in mold
      F           C      G          F
cause here's only so much we can control
Am           C            G              C
this is no anthem because anthems are proud
C                G        Am              G
and pride isn't something that this is about

Am             C             G   C
I shouldn't care shouldn't care
C                               G          Am G
but I do and that's sometimes too hard to bear
        F          C                 G              C
still walking the same road with my shoes full of holes
F             C                  G        F
just waiting for something that we can control

     Am         C  G  C
if I ever reach 50 or 55
C             G            Am         G
too early to tell if I'll still be alive
        Am            C       G          C
we were born in the 80's and now we are here
C        G       Am              G
my generation's dream will disappear
F             C        G         C
I'm at a graveyard passing the rows
     F           C      G          C
a silent surrender we'll never get close
F            C         G            C
this is my story you swallowed it whole
F                   C          G        C
about us feeling the need to be in control
