VOICE
    D     A/D       G/D    A/D      D
E-----5-------5-------3-------0------2- Just pick the
B---7-7-----5-5-----3-3------2------3-- string of the
G--7--7----6--6----4--4-----2-----2---- chord down and
D-0---0---0---0---0---0----0-----0----- when you have to
A--                                pick the first string
E--                            you pick the entire chord.

D                A/D
Pressure pushing down on me
         G/D                    A/D    D
Pressing down on you no man ask for
        D                       A/C#
Under pressure - that burns a building down
          G/B
Splits a family in two
      A
Puts people on streets (when they made the bah bah bah, make D, A/C#,G/B, A)
          G          A
It's the terror of knowing
            G        A
What this world is about
           G        A
Watching some good friends
     G             A
Screaming let me out

Pray tomorrow - gets me higher
            D                 G  A
Pressure on people - people on streets

Chippin'around    (Then like in the start and the chords)
Kick my brains around the floor
These are the days
It never rains but it pours
People on street
People on street
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

        G                       C
Turned away from it all like a blind man
G                       C
Sat on a fence but it don't work
      G                               C
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
F     G     F    G
Why - why - why

Love
A
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
           D                      G          A
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
       G       D                      G       A
Why can't we give love that one more chance
      G       D            G    A    G   D   A/C#
Why can't we give love
       G /B            A                    D
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
          A/C#        G/B
and love dares you to care for
    A             D           A/C#
The people on the edge of the night
         G/B          A
And love dares you to change our way of
A
Caring about ourselves

This is our last dance

This is our last dance
D              G    A
This is ourselves

Under pressure  (Bass like the start)

Under pressure
