James Arthur – Back From The Edge

[Chorus]
Em
Back from the edge
C
Back from the dead
D G
Back before demons took control of my head
Em
Back to the start
Am
Back to my heart
B Em
Back to the boy who would reach for the stars
Em C D G Em C B
Oh, he would reach for the stars, yeah

[Verse 1]
Em C
You can take my home, you can take my clothes
D G
You can take the drugs I have that nobody knows
Em Am
You can take my watch, you can take my phone
B
You can take all I’ve got ‘til I’m skin and bone
Em C
I don’t want control, I can dig my own hole
D G
I can make my bed and I can lie in it cold
Em Am
‘Cause I don’t need heat, I’ve been burnin’ in hell
B
But now I’m back with my own story to tell

[Chorus]
Em
Back from the edge
C
Back from the dead
D G
Back before demons took control of my head
Em
Back to the start
Am
Back to my heart
B Em
Back to the boy who would reach for the stars
Em
Oh, back from the edge
C
Back from the dead
D G
Back from the tears that were too easily shed
Em
Back to the start
Am
Back to my heart
B Em
Back to the boy who would reach for the stars
Em C D G Em Am B
Who would reach for the stars, yeah

[Verse 2]
Em C
They don’t like my lies, they don’t like my songs
D G
Except in karaoke when they’re singing along
Em Am
Did you see them build me up? Well I just tear myself down
B
With a smile on my face, I dug my grave in the ground
Em C
We all make mistakes, we’re so quick to judge
D G
It’s hard to forgive when we hold onto a grudge
Em Am
So turn down the heat, I’ve been burnin’ in hell
B
But now I’m back with my own story to tell

[Chorus]
Em
Back from the edge
C
Back from the dead
D G
Back before demons took control of my head
Em
Back to the start
Am
Back to my heart
B Em
Back to the boy who would reach for the stars
Em
Oh, back from the edge
C
Back from the dead
D G
Back from the tears that were too easily shed
Em
Back to the start
Am
Back to my heart
B Em
Back to the boy who would reach for the stars
Em C D G Em Am B
Who would reach for the stars, yeah

[Bridge]
Em C
I don’t want control, I can dig my own hole

But now I’m back with my own story to tell
