Chords:
Transpose:
  [Chorus: IRO]
Am G CGot me straight up drinkin' from the barrel
C/E F C/E FI've been losin' hours
Am G CSingin' sad songs underneath the gallows
C/E F C/E FRunnin' from my shadow
Runnin' from my shadow [Verse 1: Macklemore]
AmI need relief, I need some peace
G CBut the voices, they keep talking to me
FAnd I keep going to meetings, I pray every evening
But I can't escape my disease
AmLookin' at me, stare in the mirror
G CLook at the man starin' back at you
FYou are your failures, you are your triumphs
You are a prophet, you are an asshole
Am GYou are a devil and you are a god
CYou buy a shovel and bury it all
FThink you can purchase your way right out of the void and not end up payin' the cost?
AmLie to yourself, lie to them, hell
G CWhatever helps, forgotten what's real
FYou think the secrets you keep stay between you and me
But the shadow's attached to your heels, like [Chorus: IRO]
Am G CGot me straight up drinkin' from the barrel
C/E F C/E FI've been losin' hours
Am G CSingin' sad songs underneath the gallows
C/E F C/E FRunnin' from my shadow
Runnin' from my shadow [Verse 2: Macklemore]
Am G CI let it rain through the sunroof
I've been parked out by the waterfront
FBeen going to war with myself
Reading Sun Tzu, bumpin' Tha Carter I
Am G CI'm back on day two, forgot how hard it was
FStarin' at me for so long, I forgot who the target was
Am G C C/EI thought I was over this, this isn't what sober is
FWhat kind of dad would hold their kids
Then go back out and ignore the risk?
Am G CThe shadow wants me to forget the pain
C/E FWants me to live in the guilt and the shame
So much that I have no choice but to die from the drugs or blow out my fucking brain
Am GThe shadow, it wants me too busy
CIt wants me keep driftin'
FIt wants me to give in to fame
It wants me forgettin' that I got an illness that lives in my spirit in different ways
Am GShadow, the light
C FThey can both blind, got different names
If it's too dark, if it's too bright It can still burn you with different flames
Am G CAnd I don't owe them an iota
FTell my mama I'ma die sober
Yeah, I might be bipolar I should write an album out in Wyoming
Am G CLow bottom, I'm a high roller
Go full throttle, got no chauffeur
FGot two voices on both shoulders
But I keep swinging 'til the fight's over [Chorus: IRO]
Am G CGot me straight up drinkin' from the barrel
C/E F C FI've been losin' hours
Am G CSingin' sad songs underneath the gallows
C/E F C/E FRunnin' from my shadow
(Runnin' from my shadow) [Bridge: IRO]
Am G CRunnin', I'm runnin', I can't get away, away, away
FChasin' me down every night and all day, all day, all day
Am G CRunnin', I'm runnin', I can't get away, away, away
FChasin' me down every night and all day, all day, all day
Am G CRunnin', I'm runnin', I can't get away, away, away
FChasin' me down every night and all day, all day, all day
Am GRunnin', I'm runnin', I can't get away
CChasin' me down every night and all day, all day, all day
FMy mama told me I gotta be brave, be brave, be brave
[Outro: IRO] Keep runnin' from my shadow
