[Intro]
G Cm G Cm

[Verse 1]
G                  Cm               G
This is a life of extremes
Cm                                                  G
Both sides are slippery and enticing
Cm                  G                          Cm
These are my places off the rails

[Verse 2]
G                                  Cm                           G
And this, my loose recollection of a falling
Cm                          G
I barely remember who I failed
Cm                  G          Eb          Cm
I was just trying to keep it together

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                                           C
This is my first wave of my white flag
G                                  Gsus2/F#
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
Em                          C
This my surrender, if that’s what you call it
G          Gsus2/F#          C
In the anatomy of my crash

[Chorus]
G          Cm          G
And I keep on smiling
Cm                  G
Keep on moving
Cm     G          Cm
Can’t stand still

[Verse 3]
G                  Cm                  G
Me, the notorious bottom dweller
Cm                          G
Me, the ceiling-less brave explorer
Cm          G                  Eb          Cm
Lured to the ends of overwhelm

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                                  C
This is my first wave of the white flag
G                                  Gsus2/F#
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
Em                                                  C
This my surrender, if that’s what I call it
G          Gsus2/F#          C
In the anatomy of my crash

[Chorus]
G          Cm          G
And I keep on smiling
Cm          G
Keep on moving
Cm          G          Cm
Can’t stand still

[Verse 4]
G          Cm                  G
Such pretty forks in the road
Cm                  G
On this continuum I’ve been bouncing
Cm                  G                  Eb          Cm
Life flashing promise before my eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                  C
This is my first wave of the white flag
G                          Gsus2/F#
This is the sound of me hitting bottom
Em                          C
This my surrender, if I can bare it
G          Gsus2/F#                  C
In the anatomy of my crash

[Chorus]
G          Cm          G
And I keep on smiling
Cm                  G
Keep on moving
Cm G Cm G Cm
Can’t stand still

[Outro]
