Intro
Em Em 
   

E7                                 D7                  C 
I'm the strong one I'm not nervous I'm as tough as the crust of the Earth 

C  C 
is  


Verse
C 
I move mountains I move churches 

D                   C                     Bm 
And I glow 'cause I know what my worth is  

Em 
I don't ask how hard the work is 

D7          C7 
Got a rough indestructible surface 

C7 
Diamonds and platinum I find 'em I flatten 'em 

  Ebm                    B7 
I take what I'm handed I break what's demanded 

    Em                   C                   D7        C7 
But   under the surface I feel berserk as a tightrope walker in a 

C 
threering circus 

C                              D7 
Under the surface was Hercules ever like Yo I don't wanna fight Cerberus 

Em                                    D7 
Under the surface I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service 

  D7 
A flaw or a crack the straw in the stack 

D7 
That breaks the camel's back what breaks the camel's back 


Chorus
     Em                                           C 
It's pressure like a drip drip drip that'll never stop whoa 

         D Em                                       G    D 
Pressure  that'll tip tip tip 'til you just go pop whoa oh oh 

Em 
Give it to your sister your sister's older 

Em 
Give her all the heavy things we can't shoulder 

G 
Who am I if I can't run with the ball 


If I fall to 

Em                                              C  D 
Pressure like a grip grip grip and it won't let go whoa 

Em                                                G         D 
Pressure like a tick tick tick 'til it's ready to blow whoa oh oh 

Em 
Give it to your sister your sister's stronger 

    C 
See if she can hang on a little longer 

G                            B7 
Who am I if I can't carry it all 


If I falter 


Verse
Em                                     D7                 C 
Under the surface I hide my nerves and it worsens I worry something is 

              Em 
gonna hurt us  

                                   D7                     C 
Under the surface the ship doesn't swerve as it heard how big the iceberg 


is 

Em                                 D7                    C 
Under the surface I think about my purpose can I somehow preserve this 

B7 
Line up the dominoes a light wind blows 

    B7 
You try to stop it tumbling but on and on it goes 


Chorus
    G               Bm    GM7                                     C 
But wait if I could shake    the crushing weight of expectations  

                                 G                   Bm           Bm 
Would that free some room up for  joy or relaxation   or simple pleasure 

           C                    Em 
Instead we measure this growing   pressure 

      G            Am 
Keeps growing keep going 

       B7 
'cause all we know is 


Verse
Em                                                C      D 
Pressure like a drip drip drip that'll never stop  whoa  

Em                                                     G    D 
Pressure that'll tip tip tip 'til you just go pop whoa  oh  oh 

D 
Give it to your sister it doesn't hurt and 

C 
See if she can handle every family burden 

G7                                       B7     Em 
Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks no mistakes 


Chorus
                               Em                       C    D 
Just pressure like a grip grip grip and it won't let go whoa  

Em                                                G            D 
Pressure like a tick tick tick 'til it's ready to blow whoa oh  oh 

Em 
Give it to your sister and never wonder 

C 
If the same pressure would've pulled you under 

    G         G                    B7 
Who  am I if I don't have what it takes 

   B7 
No cracks no breaks 

B7 
No mistakes no pressure
