-Connor-
Eb         G
Dear Evan Hansen
           Cm             Ab
We've been way too out of touch
Eb                G
Things have been crazy
       Cm                  Ab
And it sucks that we don't talk that much
Cm           Bb               Ab                 Eb      Eb   
But I should tell you that I think of you each night
Cm       Bb                 Ab               F
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-
Cm         Bb              Ab                    Eb
I've gotta tell you, life without you has been hard

-JARED, spoken-

Hard?

-CONNOR-
Eb
Has been bad

-JARED, spoken-

Bad?

-CONNOR- 
Eb             
Has been rough

-JARED, spoken-
Eb   
Kinky!

-CONNOR-
Cm         Bb             Ab              F
And I miss talking about life and other stuff

-JARED, spoken-
nc.
Very specific.​

-EVAN, spoken-
nc.
Shut up!

-CONNOR-
Eb
I like my parents

-JARED, spoken-
nc.
Who says that?

-CONNOR-
Eb         G
I love my parents
    Cm                 Ab
But each day's another fight
Eb         G
If I stop smoking drugs
     Cm               Ab
Then everything might be alright

-JARED, spoken-
nc.
Smoking drugs?

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

-CONNOR-
Eb         G
If I stop smoking crack

-EVAN, spoken-
nc.
Crack?!

-CONNOR-
Eb         G
If I stop smoking pot
Cm                    Ab
Then everything might be alright
Cm        Gm
I'll take your advice
                       F
I'll try to be more nice
                Ab
I'll turn it around
         Bb
Wait and see

-Chorus-
Db                  Ab                   Eb  Eb   Eb    Eb
'Cause all that it takes is a little re-in-ven-tion
Db            Ab                         Eb Eb    Eb    Eb
It’s easy to change if you give it your a-tten-tion
G             Cm         Bb                  Eb               Ab
All you gotta do is just believe you can be who you want to be
Ab   Bb      Eb
Sincerely, Me

-Verse 2-

-JARED, spoken-
Eb
Are we done yet?

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

-JARED, spoken-
Eb
Oh my god.​

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

-JARED, spoken-

No.​

-EVAN-
Cm          Bb               Ab            Eb     Eb   
I'm sending pictures of the most amazing trees

-JARED, spoken-

No!

-EVAN-
Cm          Bb                  Ab      F
You'll be obsessed with all my forest expertise

-JARED, spoken-

Absolutely not.​

-EVAN-
Cm                 Gm
Dude, I'm proud of you
                       F
Just keep pushing through
                  Ab
You're turning around
      Bb
I can see

-CONNOR-
Bb
Just wait and see!

-Chorus-

-EVAN & CONNOR-

I was singing this by myself, like a lonely person, talking through the lines you know what I mean; and I go “My sisters hot” … all I hear is my brother across the house yell “what the hell”. I think I’ve raised him well
