The City Guitar Chords Ed Sheeran

[Intro]

F#m E D

[Verse 1]

F#m E D
This city never sleeps
F#m E D
I hear the people walk by when it’s late
F#m E D
Sirens bleed through my window sill, I can’t close my eyes
F#m E D
Don’t control what I’m into
F#m E D
This tower is alive
F#m E D
The lights that blind keep me awake
F#m E D
With my hood up and lace untied, sleep fills my mind
F#m E D
Don’t control what I’m into

[Hook]

D* E* F#m* A
London calls me a stranger, a traveller
D* E* A
This is now my home, my home
F#m E D
Oh, oh, I’m burning on the back streets
F#m E D
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,
F#m E D
Oh, oh, and I’m blazing on the street
D*
And what I do isn’t up to you,
E*
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two

[Verse 2]

F#m E D
The pavement is my friend
F#m E D
It will take me where I need to go
F#m E D
I find it trips me up, and puts me down
F#m E D
This is not what I’m used to
F#m E D
The shop across the road
F#m E D
Fulfills my needs and gives me company, when I need it
F#m E D
Voices speak through my walls, I don’t think I’m gonna make it
F#m E D
Past tomorrow

[Hook]

D* E* F#m* A
London calls me a stranger, a traveller
D* E* A
This is now my home, my home
F#m E D
Oh, oh, I’m burning on the back streets
F#m E D
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,
F#m E D
Oh, oh, and I’m blazing on the street
D*
And what I do isn’t up to you,
E*
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two

[Bridge]

D* E*
And my lungs hurt, And my ears bled,
F#m* A
With the sound of the city life, echoed in my head
D* E*
Do I need this, to keep me alive
A
The traffic stops and starts but I need to move along

[Verse 3]

F#m
I’m from a city where the rain won’t cease
E D
Pollution in the air matches that on the street
F#m
The black smoke gets you head into a muddle, like
E D
Walking into elephant syringes in the puddle, like
F#m
I was a country boy when I moved out
E D
Grew up too fast for my family to find out
F#m
Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives
E D
Can’t resort to arrogance with white lies
F#m
This city won’t erase me
E D
But I can’t help to see how this dark city changed me
F#m
It’s all the same scene, music is my life
E D
But I try to fight whatever I need to hide from
F#m
North, South, East, West,
E D
London’s my home now, knees weak, but we never slow down
F#m
Now I start to do my music properly
E D
And stay from all the negative shit that will follow me

[Hook]

D* E* F#m* A
London calls me a stranger, a traveller
D* E* A
This is now my home, my home
F#m E D
Oh, oh, I’m burning on the back streets
F#m E D
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,
F#m E D
Oh, oh, and I’m blazing on the street
D*
And what I do isn’t up to you,
E*
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two

[Outro]

F#m E D
Oh, oh, I’m burning on the back streets
F#m E D
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,
F#m E D
Oh, oh, and I’m blazing on the street
D*
And what I do isn’t up to you,
E* F#m
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two
