Billy Idol - Rat Race: chords

Em                C                  G
Wake me from my sleep, a cautionary tale
              A             Em
Walk in infancy, a way to derail
                 C                    G
I wanted to be free and I wanted only you
                       A
The walls are falling down
    Cmaj7        G/B    Am
And somebody says, "Ah give a little love
                        Em
Give a little love, but take your time"
    Cmaj7      G/B    Am
Somebody says, "Yes, give a little love
                         Bm
Give a little love, but take your time"

Chorus:
Em
A private life, well come on now
          C                             G
I said, "Livin' gets to be just like a rat race, rat race"
        A                          Em
So come on, I'm-a-read between the lines
                                         C
Fierce struggler, a natural one a tough job
                        G
Gets to be just like a rat race, rat race
        A                        Em  C Am
So come on, I'm a locked up in myself

Check before rinsing
Check before we work
Childproof the scene
No screams can be heard
The roof is caving in
The Space between our hearts
The walls are falling down
And somebody says
Ah give a little love
Give a little love
Take your time
Somebody sighs
Yes, a little love
Give a little love
But take your time

Chorus

Em
It's a rat, it's a rat, it's a rat race
Em
It's a rat, it's a rat race
Em
It's a rat, it's a rat, it's a rat race
Em
It's a rat race
Em        C           G
Ah, life living in a rat race
         A
Now come on
Em            C           G
Life are you living in a rat race?
   A                    Em
C'mon, here inside yourself
