Verse:
Gbm      A  D
I wanna be alone
Gbm                   A         D
Alone with you, does that make sense?
Gbm      A          D
I wanna steal your soul
    Gbm             A        D
And hide you in my treasure chest

Verse:
Gbm           A       D
I don't know what to do
   Gbm                A     D
To do with your kiss on my neck
Gbm           A          D
I don't know what feels true
    Gbm                  A      D
But this feels right so stay a sec
      Gbm                A      D
Yeah, you feel right so stay a sec

Chorus:
           Db7                D
And let me crawl inside your veins
             Db7                        D
I'll build a wall, give you a ball and chain

              Bm
It's not like me to be so mean
             D
You're all I wanted
            Bm   D
Just let me hold you
       Gbm A D Gbm A D
like a hostage

Verse:
Gbm           A     D
Gold on your fingertips
Gbm         A          D
Fingertips against my cheek
Gbm         A          D
Gold leaf across your lips
Gbm            A       D
Kiss me until I can't speak

Verse:
Gbm           A          D
Gold chain beneath your shirt
    Gbm                 A       D
The shirt that you let me wear home
Gbm              A         D
Gold's fake and real love hurts
    Gbm                 A   D
And nothing hurts when I'm alone
     Gbm                 A     D
When you're with me and we're alone

Chorus:
           Db7                D
And let me crawl inside your veins
             Db7                        D
I'll build a wall, give you a ball and chain
              Bm
It's not like me to be so mean
             D
You're all I wanted
            Bm   D
Just let me hold you
Bm   D
Hold you
       Gbm A D
Like a hostage
       Gbm A D 
Like a hostage

  1. Not exactly sure how to do the “like a hostage” part. I know the chords but not when to strum or not.

  2. Zoe Newland

    how do i do the “like a hostage” part???

  3. if u pluck back and forth the bottom two strings. (switch to bottom and second to top for chorus) it sounds really good thats what i do,, no worry ab strumming pattern

  4. Anonymous Ukulele

    Down… down up (and keep on doing it)

  5. Fairlylocalemo

    You should totally put “My Boy” On here. It’s also by Billie. :)

  6. blueberry

    much much better in -2

  7. Just single down strums

  8. I find that if you do lose strums down, it sound really good

  9. Life would be so much easier if you could include the strumming pattern

  10. It’s just one strum for each I’m pretty sure

  11. Definitely not a hornet

    I just strum downwards and use DDU, UDU for the outro and stuff. I don’t know if that’s actually right though

  12. what is the strumming pattern?

  13. coolbeans15

    loveeeee :,)

  14. I love this song so much. 0 definitely worked the best for me and I could sing along to it very easily. And it sounds more like the song.
