Intro: F Cadd9

Verse 1:
F
It's not true
                   Cadd9
Tell me I’ve been lied to
               F        Cadd9
Crying isn't like you, ooh
 C       F
What the hell did I do?
                 Cadd9
Never been the type to
                   F            Cadd9
Let someone see right through, ooh

Chorus:
F
Baby, won't you take it back?
Dm
Say you were tryna make me laugh
G
And nothing has to change today
                            Am
You didn’t mean to say "I love you"
     C                    F      Cadd9
I love you and I don't want to, ooh

Verse 2:
F
Up all night
            Cadd9
On another red-eye
                     F           Cadd9
We wish we never learned to fly high
F
Maybe we should just try
                      Cadd9
To tell ourselves a good lie
                     F         Cadd9
I didn't mean to make you cry, I

Chorus:
F
Baby, won't you take it back?
Dm
Say you were tryna make me laugh
G
And nothing has to change today
                            Am
You didn’t mean to say "I love you"
     C                    F      Cadd9
I love you and I don't want to, ooh

Bridge:
     Dm
The smile that you gave me
        G                   F
Even when you felt like dying

Outro:
F
We fall apart as it gets dark
Dm
I'm in your arms in Central Park
G
There's nothing you could do or say
                            Am
I can’t escape the way, I love you
         C                 F      Cadd9
I don’t want to, but I love you, ooh
F      C
Ooh, ooh
F     C
Ooh, ooh

A——2—–7|
E—-5—–5–|
C–5—–5—-|
G————–|

followed by this 1 time

A——2—-7|
E—-5—-0–|
C–5—-0—-|
G————-|

Honestly when I first played the song Cmaj7 sounded sooo off I am so glad I tried Cadd9 instead! Thx

Bea

I sorta found out the closest chords to the chorus :)

F G7
Maybe won’t you take it back?
Am G
Say you were tryna make me laugh
Dm Em
And nothing has to change today
F G7 Am
You didn’t mean to say “I love you”

AAAAAAAAH

F
Maybe won’t you take it back?
F(add#4)
Say you were tryna make me laugh
G
And nothing has to change today
G7 Am Am(add9)
You didn’t mean to say “I love you”

maisey

Mary C.

i freaking love Billie Eilish!

Yeah hi. Just thought this might help. Instead of F, trying doing 2-0-1-2 (cant find the chord name lol) for the verses, not for the chorus/outro though. And instead of using cadd9, try using cmaj7 (i saw a lot commented to use cm but i think cmaj7 is the most accurate). and alsooo, this isnt really super duper accurate but try playing it with tabs like this, its kinda close to how its spose to sound. dont hate pls i just made it up haha
vvv

E – x – 2 – x – x – x – 2 – x – x – x – 2 – x – x – x – 2 – x – x – x – 0 – x – x – x – 0 – x – x – x – 0 – x – x – x – 0 – x – x – x l

(then repeat through out verse)
(the plucking pattern is kinda repetitive so try doing the pattern with the chor/outro chords, if you feel like it. whatever feels right for you)

have a nice day y’all

Deanj.

Please could you tell me the plucking pattern you use

Abi

I used D D U U D U, I use that for everything and I just speed it up or slow it down as needed

Romane

Thanks very helpful 👌🏻

Daphne

I like to pluck the verse, into and outro in a 3 1 2 1 pattern and single down strums on on the chorus. Hope this helps
