Longshot – Newton Faulkner

 Verse:
Am
Its all there underneath 
everything we love and need 
Dm    Em
you and I
Am 
Look around you will see 
broken minds and shattered dreams 
Dm    Em
wasted time
Am
But I don't mind losing sleep
squeezing through the cracks between 
Dm     Em
day and night
Chorus:
Dm           
Its such a longshot 
Em
everything that we've got 
F
just living on this rock 
Am
surrounded by the sea 
Dm
With our shoes off 
Em
balancing on rooftops
F
you put your faith in preachers 
Am
I put my faith in me
Verse:
Am
Given time we could have seen 
all the things he could have been
Dm    Em
if you tried 
Am
But he settled for the english dream
bathed in mediocrity
Dm      Em
stood in line
Am
But thats not enough for me
I will kick and scream 
Dm     Em
tell you why
Chorus:
Dm           
Its such a longshot 
Em
everything that we've got 
F
just living on this rock 
Am
surrounded by the sea 
Dm
With our shoes off 
Em
balancing on rooftops
F
you put your faith in preachers 
Am
I put my faith in me
