[Verse 1]
G
..Life is the reason I'm still holding ground
Em            C               D
..Life isn't perfect bodies and perfect sounds
G                                      Em
..Death is in season, it's pushing me 'round
And 'round and 'round
  C           D
A bottle cap, a rusted crown
G                                  Em 
..When one pushes up, the other pulls me down
                      C                D
And I don't know if I'll get out, if I'll get out
G                             Em 
..One pushes up, the other pulls me down
                     C                D
And I don't know if I'll get out, if I'll get out

[Chorus]

D Em G      D         C         Em    
...This one makes you big in a cruel world
 D    Em   G    D    C          Em 
This one makes you small in a lonely world
 D    Em   G D     C                Em 
This one takes it all away, all the pain
    D   Em  G  D   C
But I'm not giving up
    Em           G
Not today, not today

[Verse 2]
             G                              Em 
There's life in this tunnel, we're just hanging around
                C                 D
Please, if you see my hand, just pull me out
                         G
'Cause there's death in this tunnel
          Em                    C        D
Still hanging on me, still begging on me...
G                                      Em 
'Cause when one pushes up, the other pulls me down
                     C                D
And I don't know if I'll get out, if I'll be found
[Chorus]
D Em G      D         C          Em    
...This one makes you big what a cruel world
 D    Em   G    D    C              Em 
This one makes you small, feel that lonely world
 D    Em   G D     C                 Em 
This one takes it all away, but I'll stay
    D   Em  G  D   C
But I'm not giving up
    Em 
Not today, I won't
D  Em   G    D   C
I won't give you up
