Song: The Upper Hand
Artist: Goldfinger
Album: Open Your Eyes

Notes: In my opinion, the best song on the album, but seems very little known. Its the
bonus track, in case your interested! Also, it uses the same chord twice (F#5), which
ive labeled F#5 and F#5a (see bottom!)


                 A5 (x022xx@1)             E5Since (022xxx@1)youve been 15 youve were confused

F#5 (244xxx@1)               D5At (xx023x@1)the age its so hard to just be you

A5 (x022xx@1)           E5You (022xxx@1)got your friends, your records

    F#5 (244xxx@1)             D5The (xx023x@1)only thing that makes you feel whole

A5 (x022xx@1)              E5 (022xxx@1)        F#5Youre (244xxx@1)trying to figure it all out

                D5 (xx023x@1)       A5 (x022xx@1)            E5Sometimes (022xxx@1)you realise the fight is oh so futile

       F#5 (244xxx@1)           D5When (xx023x@1)someone else is telling you your wrong


D5 (xx023x@1)            A5You (x022xx@1)know your right

    G5But (355xxx@1)no one seems to listen,

     F#5a                E5 (022xxx@1)    D5They (xx023x@1)say you're just a child,

                  A5So (x022xx@1)you turn and fight,

      G5For (355xxx@1)me that is the only way

   F#5a               E (022100@1)                 A5 (x022xx@1) E5 (022xxx@1) F#5To (244xxx@1)step to what they say is the upper hand,

                D5 (xx023x@1)              A5 (x022xx@1)E5 (022xxx@1)F#5 (244xxx@1)            
Don't let them take the upper hand

                D5Don't (xx023x@1)let them take the upper hand

You wanna go out and forget the day
Go out and just make your life seem real
Forget your mom and dad
Forget about your job, your home, your school
You take so much shit,
Your girl said it's over
You think about giving up
But don't you dare give up without a fight

You know you're right
But no one seems to listen,
They say you're just a child,
So you turn and fight,
For me that is the only way
To step to what they say is the upper hand,
Don't let them take the upper hand
Never let them take the upper hand
The upper hand

Second verse and chorus are the same, listen for the rhythm.
