Håller Mig På Kanten chords – Joel Alme

 Lyssnade mig till den, men borde stämma. Introt som rullar igenom en större del av låten är 
ett plock med dessa ackord. 

Capo på 7e bandet. 

Intro/vers:
 
 D C   
Svårt att vara ren här

 Bm A  
Alla kastar sten här 

 D C 
Men jag vet, jag tänker på det nu
 
 Bm A 
Jag har duckat varje sten, här 



 D C 
Så jag håller mig på kanten

 Bm A 
Så länge man kan i den här staden 

 D C 
Tog en vända på Stochholms (i allén((?)) 

 Bm A 
Du har fötterna på marken, älskling 



 D C 
Det är svårt att sitta still här

 Bm A 
Tågen rullar fort, här 

 D C 
Men ändå har jag aldrig hunnit fram

 Bm A  
Till att hitta nåt lugn, nånstans 



 G A  
Jag hör Kenta på balkongen där jag bor

 Bm Bm/A  
Han sa nåt bra, precis innan han dog

 G G G G 
Somliga får, 

     A A A A 
Nog bara en chans

Att hitta lyckan 

 G A Bm Bm/A

Captain of Industry – Joel Plaskett

Riff  Am Em G Dm G 

Verse 
 Am C G Am      
Floodlights shine from motion detectors
       F C F C 
They know that we’re out here, they know that we’re out here
 Am C G Am    
The truth is a minefield and they’re the defectors
 F C  
They know that we’re out here 

 Am C G Am  
Beyond the frame and outside the margins
 F C F C 
Don’t know where we’re going but I know that we’re gone
 Am C G Am   
We scour the city, the streets and the gardens
     F C 
And everything’s wrong

Chorus 
      F C F C  
The captains of industry are driving us home
 Dm Am F G     
Selling us lies, tapping our phone
 F C F Em  
Shaking us down and we don’t even know it
     G F 
If you want real love, show it

Riff  Am Em G Dm G 

Verse 2
 Am C G Am   
Some people got luck, some people got money
      F C F C 
Some people get stuck, a stick in the spokes
    Am C G Am 
If you got nothing they look at you funny
      F C 
Oh, this ain’t a joke

Chorus
      F C F C  
The captains of industry are driving us home

If You Knew chords – Joel Faviere

 This is a beautiful song, I hope these chords are accurate because I want to do it some justice.
It is played on guitar and piano mostly. The guitar just strums the chords below.
The piano however plays a more complex assortments of runs, riffs and progressions.
Despite this, the piano's part is completely based around the chords below so they should sound fine.
The song simply plays top to bottom.
These are the chords with which you can play along to the original. I hope this helps.

Intro
 D F#m   x4

 D F#m 
They think you're crazy    (crazy)
 D F#m 
They think you're mad      (mad)
 D F#m 
They call you stupid, worthless
 D F#m 
Tell you you're not worth it

 D F#m D 
Now you're walking back, to the place you call home
 D F#m 
But you feel so alone
 D F#m 
The same hurtful hits
                   D F#m 
It's your darker place, in your virgin ears
                  G 
The remarks they make

                             F#m 
And if they, if they really knew
               G                           
All of those things, that you do in your room

             D 
To hide the pain
                          G 
I bet their minds would change, yeah
                          D G 
I bet their minds would cha-a-a-a-ange

         G Bm 
They'd cha-a-a-a-ange
                  G Bm 
If they knew the pa-a-a-a-ain
  G Bm 
Cha-a-a-a-ange

 And tears were in his eyes (Tears were in his eyes)

VERSE I  
--------------------------
         Em7            
Well we all have a face
         Am Em7 
That we hide away forever
        Am C 
And we take them out and show ourselves
      D                 B7#5(#9)
When everyone has gone
          Em7  
Some are satin some are steel
          Am Em7 
Some are silk and some are leather

Though we share so many secrets
           D                  B7#5(#9)
There are some we never tell
          Em7 
Why were you so surprised
          Am Em7

VERSE III
--------------------------
        Em7  
Once I used to believe
        Am Em7 
I was  such a great romancer
        Am C 
Then I came home to a woman
        D                   B7#5(#9)
That I could not recognize
        Em7 
When I pressed her for a reason
       Am Em7 
She refused to even answer
        Am7 D 
It was then I felt the stranger

Capo #2
    
Intro  G Bm C  -  Bm  -  Am C  -  Bm  -  Am  -  D  -  G G Bm   
   I hate days when it was hard to live
 C G  -  D 
   But I've never been afraid to die
          G Bm 
   But I've met someone good
 C A   -   D         
   And now I'm scared like a little child

            G                        
   'Cos I got someone
            Bm 
   'Cos I got somebody waiting
          C    -   Bm      -    Am 
   They always put their heart in
              C    -   Bm    -    Am   -    D    -    G   
   But they really need me, need me, need me back

   If you find someone good
   That stays when others leave
   That cares for you, that fights for you
   You better stay with someone that straight with you

  'Cos if you've got someone
   If you got somebody waiting
   They always puts their heart in
             C  -  Bm    -   Am     -    D   -           C 
   You better give them one more day in your life
