Just after every c chord, he plucks the G# bass note, (4th fret of low E string) as sort of a transition 
He plays Bb this way 
D I'm not a rapper; I'm a singer with a flow I've got a habit of spitting quicker lyrics you know Bb You found me ripping the writtens out of the pages they sit in C and I never want to get bittenbecause plagiarism is hidden D Watch how I sit on the rhythm, prisoner with a vision Signs of LA, but didn't listen to any criticism Bb Thought you knew but you didn't so perk your ears up and listen C Studio with a system and you could say that I'm driven D And now it's on to the next saga we drink the best lager, I never tried to win you over like your stepfather Bb I do my own thing now, and get respect after C And I'm avoiding cocaine like it was Get Carter D For four years I never had a place to stay but it's safe to say that it kept me grounded like a paperweight Bb At 16 years old I moved out of my home C I was Macy Gray I tried to say goodbye and I choked D And we've been sleeping at the subway station, sleeping with a movie star and adding to the population Bb Not my imagination, I don't want to relax C But would it hurt your reputation,if I put it on wax? So take it back now... D Bb Come on and take it back now C Come on and take it back now D Bb C Dont you fade into the back now D Take it back with the rhythm and blues and my back pack I'll be singing the news, trying to act like Jack Black (???) Bb I'll make a beat with my feet by just singing a loop, C bringing the lyrics to prove that I can fit in these shoes, D and keeping the truth through the vocal booth, stars burst out on the scene like an opal fruit, Bb they try and take aim like beckham when he goes to shoot, C but then again that's what they're supposed to do, D and I'm supposed to be calm,I tattooed the lyrics onto my arm, whispering everything that happens is from now on, Bb I'll be willing to start again at the end of the song, C still they think I handled it wrong, D but then I never had an enemy, except for NME, but I'll be selling twice as many copies as the magazines will ever be, Bb and got me spectacles ahead of me and festival fees, C to help me with a Dalmatian, no pedigree D, singing for the masses, rubber dinghy rapids,keep this rapping a habit and keep on passioning magic, Bb I'm battling for the respect, C I don't know if I'll have it, this songs from the heart, grabbing the plaque I'll take it back now D Bb Come on and take it back now C Come on and take it back now D Bb C Dont you fade into the back Same chord progression continues Take it back now I don't ever want to be perfect, Cause I'm a singer that you never want to see shirtless I accept the fact that someone has to win the worst-dressed, Taking my first steps into the scene, giving me focus Putting on a brave face, like Timothy Dalton Considering a name change, thinking it was hopeless Rhyming over recordings Avoiding tradition Cause every day some lyrics and a melody can be written Now absence can make your heart ache But drinking absinthe can change your mind-state, vividly, I need to let my liver be And I say it again, Living life on the edge, with a closed hand full of friends Is good advice from a man who took his life on the road with me And I hope to see him blowing up globally Cause that's how it's supposed to be screaming out vocally Might seem totally impossible achieving life's dreams But, but I just write schemes I'm never having a stylist, giving me tight jeans Madison Square Garden is where I might be But more likely, You'll find me in the back room of a dive bar with my mates Having a pint with McDaid Discussing records we made And every single second knowing that we'll never betray The way we were raised Remembering our background Sat down That's how we put it out; it's time to take it back now D Bb Come on and take it back now C Come on and take it back now D Bb C Dont you fade into the back now D Bb Come on and take it back now C Come on and take it back now D Bb C Dont you fade into the back now My dreams keep me awake at night Written in rhymes, and lies, deliver the hype Am I just living the lie With this you must know that the number's just sold woah Will keep me going through the tough times, dream with me We forget 90 per cent of it when we wake But the other 10 per cent it never fades Dreaming dreams, day to day goals Stay awake loads, try to make the cut like the Paper or razor blade, never give up And just remember just to hold out more A couple years ago I couldn't just control that thought You'd find me buskin' on the street When it was cold outdoors And now I'm sweating on the stage With the sold out tours Writing love songs for the sake of it Never to make a hit You can't fake talent and work ethic just to make it quick I'm not a rapper I'm a singer, I just take the piss and Most of these other guys are guys that pose His little sister has to babysit, that's just a way it is Dreams you own, just set your goals And have the utmost faith in it; tread your own path You'll never make it as a follower, you'll never know Where you will go or where you will be tomorrow
