Intro -x2-: A   Gbm    A

Verse:
A               Gbm         A     Gbm    A
I’ve learned to slam on the brake
A             Gbm      A    Gbm    A
Before I even turn the key
A        Gbm      A       Gbm    A
Before I make the mistake
A        Gbm           A           Gbm    A
Before I lead with the worst of me
A            Gbm       A      Gbm    A
Give them no reason to stare
A                  Gbm       A    Gbm    A
No slipping out if you slip away
A        Gbm        A     Gbm    A
So I got nothing to share
A           Gbm        A    Gbm    A             
No I’ve got nothing to say

Pre-Chorus:
Gbm            D
Step out, step out of the sun
       A           E
If you keep getting burned
Gbm            D
Step out, step out of the sun
  A
Because you’ve learned
  E
Because you’ve learned

Chorus:
Gbm
On the outside
D
Always looking in
       A            E
Will I ever be more than I’ve ever been?
          Gbm                      D
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    A                E
I’m waving through a window
Gbm                D
I try to speak but nobody can hear
A                      E
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       Gbm                           D
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    A                E     Gbm
I’m waving through a window
            E
Can anybody see?
                          A    D 
Is anybody waving back at me?

Interlude: A  E

Verse:
A
We start with stars in our eyes
D                          E
We start believing that we belong
Dbm                   E
But every sun doesn’t rise
A                          D        E
And nobody tells you where you went wrong

Pre-Chorus:
Gbm            D
Step out, step out of the sun
       A           E
If you keep getting burned
Gbm            D
Step out, step out of the sun
  A
Because you’ve learned
  E
Because you’ve learned

Chorus:
Gbm
On the outside
D
Always looking in
       A            E
Will I ever be more than I’ve ever been?
          Gbm                      D
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    A                E
I’m waving through a window
Gbm                D
I try to speak but nobody can hear
A                      E
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       Gbm                           D
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    A                E     Gbm
I’m waving through a window
            E
Can anybody see?

Is anybody waving?

Interlude:
            A           E                   Gbm    D
When you’ve fallen in a forest, and there’s nobody around
       A           E        Gbm         D
do you ever really crash or even make a sound?

Bridge:
      Gbm         D
Did I even make a sound?
      A           E
Did I even make a sound?
            Gbm          D
It’s like I never made a sound
       A           
Will I ever make a sound?

Chorus:
Gm
On the outside
Eb
Always looking in
       Bb           F
Will I ever be more than I’ve ever been?
          Gm                       Eb
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    Bb               F
I’m waving through a window
Gm                 Eb
I try to speak but nobody can hear
Bb                      F
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       Gm                            Eb
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    Bb               F      Gm
I’m waving through a window
            F
Can anybody see?
                          Bb
Is anybody waving back at me?
   Eb      F      Gm     F
Is anybody waving waving waving?
Eb   Bb
Whoa whoa

instead of using a and gbm, Use c, csus4 and csus2. It sounds amazing! So do

c csus4 csus2

the chords are easier than e so google them

i found that if you change the A to E in the intro, it matches the 3 chords played in the intro of the song :)

if anyone wants (in my opinion) a better way to play this i recommend checking out liana flores on youtube because she has done this musical mashup and her way of playing waving through a window really sounds like the original! she has a chord chart for it online as well

It sounds better if you put a capo on 2 while keeping the transpose on 0. :)

On +3, if you take the chords from +5 (Bm, G, D, A) for the key change its way easier.

My hands are too small to play the E chord, any easier replacements?
