Amy Macdonald - The Contender: chords

 G
I've been written off so many times before
         C
I've forgotten what it feels like to succeed anymore
G
Always on the sidelines, waiting in the wings
          C
When the curtain finally falls,
I'm never on the screen

      G
And I've got the scars to prove I've been there
 C
I've got the marks from when I tried
 Em
I've covered miles and miles to get here
C
Only for you to cast me aside

Chorus:
                G                 Em  C
But I'll still run, run like the wind
                 G               Em C
And I'll still start, all over again
          G
I gave it all, cause I had to make it
          Em                    C
I gave it all, cause I had to try
        G
I sacrificed my close relations
          Em              C
For the chance to say I tried

I've never learned to win, don't know what it means
I lost myself when we were young, I'm fighting just to feel
Always on the edge, I just want to make my name
I'd love to show the world what I gave up for the game

And I've got the scars to prove I've been there
I've got the marks from when I tried
I've covered miles and miles to get here
Only for you to cast me aside

Chorus

      G                     C
And I've got the scars to prove I've been there
 G                        D
I've got the marks from when I tried
 G                      C
I've covered miles and miles to get here
G                D
Only for you to cast me aside
      G                     C
And I've got the scars to prove I've been there
 G                        D
I've got the marks from when I tried
 G                      C
I've covered miles and miles to get here
G                D
Only for you to cast me aside
