For a closer match to the song, you can pick up the beat, which i can't figure out, or 
you can use a technique where you play a chord, then half way into the chord you put your 
hand flat on the strings to stop it, then do that over again until you switch chords.
When he raps, you go back to playing the intro. This song is less than 3 minutes and 
helps to listen to the song on youtube to guide you. Have fun. ;)

This is the story on how we lived
The glory of what we did
It started when we were kids
With music up in our heads
She said

(Verse 1)
Am         C                G
 I've been out on the edge
           D
Breathin a little bit of fresh air
Am          C                 G
 Big dreams, I took a chance
            D
Held out for everything i've got here

(Pre Chorus)
Am         C            G
 I've been feeling this life's a circus
D
Hangin on without a fear

(Chorus)
Am
Livin on a high wire
C
Runnin through a wildfire
G                   D
You can't shake me, I'm not goin nowhere
Am
Walkin on a tight rope
C
No net, high hopes
G              D
Step back, I'm gonna make it over
Am    C
Na na na na na na na
G     D
Na na livin on a high wire
Am    C
Na na na na na na na
G     D
Na na livin on a high wire

This is the story of how we lived
The glory of what we did
It started when we were kids
With music up in our heads
She said

Am         C                   G
Big top, turnin around, no clowns
              D
Im runnin as I hit the ground
Am               C            G
Front row, big show is sold out
                             D
So I'm ready for the crowd roar, lets go

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

Bridge
(look up a tab for this part)

When it comes to the beat
Seeing that the heads are moving
Move off your seat
Achievement is what we're really doing
Freedom of speech
I'm in it just to win it
I'm springin' and I can see it
In the end that you can be it
'Cause it's patience, it's statements
Famous greatness
Movin' 'til you make it through
And maybe you can make it too

(no guitar)
Livin on a high wire
Can't shake me I'm not goin nowhere

Am                   C                  G
Walking a tight rope no net high hopes
              D
Step back I'm gonna make it over
Am    C
Na na na na na na na
G     D
Na na livin on a high wire
Am    C
Na na na na na na na
G     D               Am C   G        D
Na na livin on a high wire  (yeah yeah)
Am    C
Na na na na na na na
G     D                   Am
Na na livin on a high wire
