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

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

Chorus:
           B7                C
And let me crawl inside your veins
             B7                        C
I'll build a wall, give you a ball and chain

              Am
It's not like me to be so mean
             C
You're all I wanted
            Am   C
Just let me hold you
       Em G C Em G C
like a hostage

Verse:
Em           G     C
Gold on your fingertips
Em         G          C
Fingertips against my cheek
Em         G          C
Gold leaf across your lips
Em            G       C
Kiss me until I can't speak

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

Chorus:
           B7                C
And let me crawl inside your veins
             B7                        C
I'll build a wall, give you a ball and chain
              Am
It's not like me to be so mean
             C
You're all I wanted
            Am   C
Just let me hold you
Am   C
Hold you
       Em G C
Like a hostage
       Em G C 
Like a hostage

Panic at the Avacodo Ferret Disco Muahahahahahaha

Yowza these are the exact chords. Just what I needed to serenade my depression.

Ahaha…People think I’m kidding

thatasiannerd

mind if I join you…

glowstick19

You don’t understand how hard I relate…

BRO THIS IS THE MOST RELATEABLE THING I HAVE EVER SEEN WHAT-

Virgil

Thanks! Sounds EXACTLY right at 0 and is really easy. Personally, instead of F on the very last “hold you”, I play E7. The actual song is just down on each chord once, no strumming pattern required. The “like a hostage” part is played just like the verses ((Am for 2 beats, C for 1 beat, F for 1 beat, rest for 3 beats)).

Avie

These were really good chords for me.. it sounds better with my voice too, which really helps! Thank you so much! ☺️♥️

egianicos123

the E7 in this is so nice omg

BillieEilishFan200

When I do “like a hostage” I kind of pick the strings and I do G, C, A. It sounds a little bit like the guitar in the actual song

Lily

Me too

Ali

Very good ! I use d,ddud for the strumming!

Brook Reinhardt

This sounded so close to the original it completely calmed my anxiety. I also found that if you use a plucking pattern of 1 3 2 4 it sound soo cool.

BillieEilishisyummyasf1234

i do single downstrums until the chorus then i do dduudu

Meg Fidgetz

I think that this even sounds good with single strums. I live the E7, and it fits perfectly with my voice

Darlene

What I do is go down 2 times on the Am then go with the C once and the same with the F.
