Intro: Db Gb

Db                     Gb
Oh, I built a world around you
Db                     Gb
Oh, you had me in a dream, 
I lived in every word you said
      Ab         F
The stars had aligned
                  Bbm       Ab
I thought that I found you
    Gb              Ab            Db     Gb
And I don't wanna love somebody else

Db                      Gb
Oh, we left it all unspoken
Db                  Gb
Oh, we buried it alive,
And now it's screaming in my head
Db                      Gb
Oh, I shouldn't go on hoping
Db                              Gb
Oh, that you will change your mind,
And one day we could start again
     Ab        F                 Bbm       Ab
Well I don't care if loneliness kills me
Gb              Ab            Db     Ab Bbm Gb Ab Gb
I don't wanna love somebody else

Db                            Gb
Oh, I thought that I could change you
Db                            Gb                           Db
Oh, I thought that we would be the greatest story that I tell
    Ab             F                   Bbm   Ab
I know that it's time to tell you it's over
    Gb              Ab            Bbm     Gb Ab Db
But I don't wanna love somebody else

  1. strumming pattern?

  2. anna.meyers

    -5 is definitely the easiest. For beginners it would help a bit if you changed the E to an Em. It doesn’t change drastically.
