    Dm
    I'm not a rapper, I'm a singer with a flow 
    I've got a habit of spitting
    quicker lyrics you know
    Bb
    You found me ripping the writtens 
    out of the pages they sit in
    C
    I never want get bitten, 
    C#m
    because plagiarism is hidden 
    Dm
    Which I would sit on the rhythm , 
    prisoner with a vision
    Signs of a label, but didn't listen to any criticism
    Bb
    Thought you knew but you didn't 
    So perk your ears up and listen
    C
    Studio is a system 
    C#m
    And you could say that I'm driven 
    Dm
    And now it's on to the next saga, 
    we drink the best lager
    I never tried to win you over
    like your stepfather
    Bb
    I do my own thing now, and get respect after 
    CC#m
    And I'm avoiding the cane 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
    Bb
    At 16 years old yeah I moved out of my home 
    CC#m
    I was Macy Gray I tried to say goodbye and 
    I choked
    Dm
    And went from sleeping at the subway station, sleeping with a movie star and adding to the population 
    Bb
    Not my imagination, I don't want to relax 
    C
    Would it hurt your reputation, 
    C#m
    if I put it on wax? 
    I take it back now
    Refrão:
    Dm
    Mmh Mmh Mmh Mmh 
    Bb
    Come on and take it back now 
    CC#mDm
    Come on and take it back for us 
    DmBb
    Don't you fade into the back love, 
    CC#m
    nooooohh 
    Verso 2:
    Dm
    Take it back with the rhythm and blues 
    With my rap pack I'll be singing the news,
    trying to act like Jack Black when I bring 'em to school
    Bb
    I'll make a beat with my feet just by hitting a loop, 
    CC#m
    bringing the lyrics to prove that I can fit in these shoes 
    Dm
    And keeping the truth through the vocal booth, 
    stars burst out on the scene like an opal fruit,
    Bb
    they try to take aim like beckham when he goes to shoot, 
    C
    but then again that's what they're supposed to do, 
    C#m
    and I'm supposed to be calm , 
    Dm
    I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm , whispering everything that happens is from now on, 
    Bb
    I'll be willing to start again by the end of the song, 
    CC#m
    still they're claiming that I handled it wrong, 
    Dm
    but then I never had an enemy, except the NME, 
    but I'll be selling twice as many copies as the magazines will ever be,
    Bb
    with only spectacles ahead of me and festival fees, 
    CC#m
    healthier than a Dalmatian on pedigree, 
    Dm
    singing for the masses, 
    rubber dinghy rapids,
    I keep this rapping a habit
    and keep on passioning magic,
    Bb
    I'm battling with respect, 
    C
    I don't know if I'll have it, 
    C#m
    this songs from the heart, 
    cover the planet
    I'll take it back now
    Refrão:
    Dm
    Mmh Mmh 
    Bb
    Come on and take it back now 
    CC#mDm
    Come on and take it back for us 
    DmBb
    Don't you fade into the back love, 
    CC#m
    nooooohh 
    Verso 3:
    Take it back now
    Dm
    I don't ever wanna be perfect, 
    Cause I'm a singer that you
    never wanna see shirtless
    Bb
    I accept the fact that someone's got to win worst-dressed, 
    CC#m
    Taking my first steps into the scene, 
    giving me focus
    Dm
    Putting on a brave face, like Timothy Dalton 
    Considering a name change,
    thinking it was hopeless
    Bb
    Rhyming over recordings, 
    avoiding tradition
    C
    Cause everyday some lyrics 
    C#m
    and a melody can be written 
    Dm
    Now absence can make your heart break 
    But drinking absinthe can change your mind-state, vividly,
    I need to let my liver be
    Bb
    And I say it again, 
    C
    Living life on the edge, 
    C#m
    with a closed hand full of friends 
    Is good advice from a man
    Dm
    who took his life on the road with me 
    and I hope to see him blowing up globally
    Bb
    Cause that's how it's supposed to be 
    screaming out vocally
    C
    It might seem totally impossible 
    C#m
    achieving life's dreams 
    Dm
    But, but I just write schemes 
    I'm never having a stylist, giving me tight jeans
    Bb
    Madison Square Garden is where I might be 
    But more likely,
    C
    You'll find me in the back 
    C#m
    room of a dive bar with my mates 
    Dm
    Having a pint with McDaid 
    Discussing records we made
    And every single second knowing
    that we'll never betray
    Bb
    The way we were raised 
    Remembering our background
    Sat down
    C
    That's how we put it out; 
    C#m
    it's time to take it back now 
    Refrão:
    Dm
    Mmh Mmh Mmh Mmh 
    Bb
    Come on and take it back now 
    CC#mDm
    Come on and take it back for us 
    DmBb
    Don't you fade into the back love, 
    CC#m
    nooooohh uuuuuuuhh 
    Dm
    Mmh Mmh Mmh Mmh 
    Bb
    Come on and take it back now 
    CC#mDm
    Come on and take it back for us 
    DmBb
    Don't you fade into the back love, 
    CC#m
    nooooohh 
    Verso 4:
    Dm
    My dreams keep me awake at night 
    written in rhymes, and I, deliver the hype am I
    just living the lie
    Bb
    with this you must know that the number's just sold woah 
    CC#m
    Will keep me going through the tough times, dream with me 
    Dm
    We forget 90 percent of it when we wake 
    But the other 10 per cent it never fades
    Bb
    Dreaming dreams, day to day goals, 
    C
    Stay awake loads, try to make the cut like the 
    C#m
    paper or razor blade, oh, never give up 
    Dm
    And just remember just to hold out more 
    A couple years ago
    I couldn't just control that thought
    Bb
    You'd find me buskin' on the street 
    When it was cold outdoors
    C
    And now I'm sweating on the stage 
    C#m
    of a sold out tour 
    Dm
    Writing love songs for the sake of it, 
    never to make a hit
    You can't fake talent and work ethic just to make it quick
    Bb
    I'm not a rapper I'm a singer, I just take the piss and 
    CC#m
    Most the other guys are kids that pose his little sister 
    Dm
    has to babysit, that's just a way it is 
    Dreams you own, just set your goals
    and have the utmost faith in it
    Bb
    Tread your own path, you'll never make it as a follower, 
    CC#m
    you'll never know where you will go or where you'll be tomorrow
