D                     //*/
Look what you've done,     look what you've done
/    /  *   Gmaj7      //*_       //*
What do you have now?
D                      //*/ 
Things that never come,     didn't knew they didn't move
/  /  *       Gmaj7       //*_   _ _ _
Is it time to come down?

       A
At the back of a crowded scene,
You saw the boys in white sing
          Gmaj7
"I'm a pretender"
                                    D
But you never were, never were a contender
     Gmaj7
A contender

--------------

I heard your same old tune, singing city sins
Like you were the first one
Gave up books for film, gave up film for time
Now that you've got none

At the back of a crowded scene,
You saw the boys in white sing
"I'm a pretender"
At the back of a crowded scene,
You saw the boys in white sing
"I'm a pretender"
But you never were, never were a contender
Contender
Never were a contender
Never were a contender
