G         B
Dear Evan Hansen
           Em             C
We've been way too out of touch
G                B
Things have been crazy
       Em                  C
And it sucks that we don't talk that much
Em           D               C                 G      G   
But I should tell you that I think of you each night
Em       D                 C               A
I rub my nipples and start moaning with delight

-EVAN, spoken-
nc.
Why would you write that?

-JARED, spoken-
nc.
I'm just trying to tell the truth.​

-EVAN, spoken-
nc.
This needs to be perfect.​ These emails have to prove that we were actually friends. Just—I'll do it.​

-CONNOR, sung-
Em         D              C                    G
I've gotta tell you, life without you has been hard

-JARED, spoken-

Hard?

-CONNOR-
G
Has been bad

-JARED, spoken-

Bad?

-CONNOR- 
G             
Has been rough

-JARED, spoken-
G   
Kinky!

-CONNOR-
Em         D             C              A
And I miss talking about life and other stuff

-JARED, spoken-
nc.
Very specific.​

-EVAN, spoken-
nc.
Shut up!

-CONNOR-
G
I like my parents

-JARED, spoken-
nc.
Who says that?

-CONNOR-
G         B
I love my parents
    Em                 C
But each day's another fight
G         B
If I stop smoking drugs
     Em               C
Then everything might be alright

-JARED, spoken-
nc.
Smoking drugs?

-EVAN, spoken-
nc.            D
Just fix it!

-CONNOR-
G         B
If I stop smoking crack

-EVAN, spoken-
nc.
Crack?!

-CONNOR-
G         B
If I stop smoking pot
Em                    C
Then everything might be alright
Em        Bm
I'll take your advice
                       A
I'll try to be more nice
                C
I'll turn it around
         D
Wait and see

-Chorus-
F                  C                   G  G   G    G
'Cause all that it takes is a little re-in-ven-tion
F            C                         G G    G    G
It’s easy to change if you give it your a-tten-tion
B             Em         D                  G               C
All you gotta do is just believe you can be who you want to be
C   D      G
Sincerely, Me

-Verse 2-

-JARED, spoken-
G
Are we done yet?

-EVAN, spoken-
G
Well I can't just give them one email. I want to show that I was, like, a good friend, you know?

-JARED, spoken-
G
Oh my god.​

-EVAN, sung-
G           B
Dear Connor Murphy,​
       Em            C
Yes, I also miss our talks
G          B
Stop doing drugs
            Em                    C     
Just try to take deep breaths and go on walks

-JARED, spoken-

No.​

-EVAN-
Em          D               C            G     G   
I'm sending pictures of the most amazing trees

-JARED, spoken-

No!

-EVAN-
Em          D                  C      A
You'll be obsessed with all my forest expertise

-JARED, spoken-

Absolutely not.​

-EVAN-
Em                 Bm
Dude, I'm proud of you
                       A
Just keep pushing through
                  C
You're turning around
      D
I can see

-CONNOR-
D
Just wait and see!

-Chorus-

    for the re-in-ven- tion part I personally like it better instead of playing g the whole time you go em-b-c-g. I just think it sounds better

  4. What’s the strumming pattern? I have no clue what I’m doing

  5. thisismeow

    +5 is good for a sensible vocal range unless you want to sing that really high harmony at the end :)
