Intro: Amaj7 Emaj7 Gbm Emaj7

Verse 1:
Amaj7
Don't be that way
      Emaj7
Fall apart twice a day
       Gbm                          Emaj7
I just wish you could feel what you say
Amaj7
Show, never tell
      Emaj7
But I know you too well
        Gbm                       B    Bsus4   B 
Kind of mood that you wish you could sell

Chorus:
   Amaj7
If teardrops could be bottled
           Emaj7
There'd be swimming pools filled by models
            Gbm                              Ab
Told "that tight dress is what makes you a whore"
      Amaj7
If "I love you" was a promise
          Emaj7
Would you break it, if you're honest
         Gbm                                 B   Bsus4   B 
Tell the mirror what you know she's heard before
Amaj7     Ab       Dbm
Idontwannabeyouanymore

Verse 2:
Amaj7
Hands getting cold
       Emaj7
Losing feeling's getting old
      Gbm              Emaj7
Was I made from a broken mold?
Amaj7
Hurt, I can't shake
           Emaj7
We've made every mistake
     Gbm                    B   Bsus4   B 
Only you know the way that I break

Chorus:
   Amaj7
If teardrops could be bottled
           Emaj7
There'd be swimming pools filled by models
            Gbm                              Ab
Told "that tight dress is what makes you a whore"
      Amaj7
If "I love you" was a promise
          Emaj7
Would you break it, if you're honest
         Gbm                                 B
Tell the mirror what you know she's heard before
Amaj7     Ab
Idontwannabeyou
Amaj7     Ab
Idontwannabeyou
Amaj7     Ab           Dbm
Idontwannabeyou... anymore

  1. How was it? Did u get in? I’m so happy for u!!! ❤️

  2. hellojello

    if you want a kid friendly version, replace wh*re with “who you are”. It works just as well :)

  3. i would remove the dsus4 its unneeded and sounds rlly bad lol

  4. i hope that’s a joke lol

  5. Harrison Isaac smith

    Does anyone else find the chords sound wrong?
    Please help

    • Me tooo lol. But dont know how to fix it

    • Well, I think that if you play C instead of Cmaj7, G with Gmaj7
      and Dsus4, you don’t have to but it in your chords
      Play with ballade or slow will make it easier

  6. Yo I’m using this for my AGT audi tmrw :))) Wish me luck

  7. Lol, I actually thought that was a real “read more” button Lol

    • I AM YOUR GSUS

      The strumming pattern i used was DDUDUD and it works well, at the star just down all the time until it’s says “If teardrops could be bottled”

  8. Billie Eilish Fan Girl

    DDU mute works well. It starts when it goes “if I love you was a promise…” but before I just do one or two strokes

  9. @heey.mariii (on instagram)

    I use this strumming pattern D – UX.

    Am(D – UX) Am(D – UX) D* Dsus4 D*
    When there’s “Tell the mirror what you know she’s heard before”
    At “D* Dsus4 and D*” you have to do D UD UD.

    D UD UD —-> D*(D U) Dsus4(D U) D*(D)

  10. Just Another Ukulele Player

    D UU D works really well as a pattern and in some places like half through the second time to play the chorus do D UU D X. So it’d be “If I love you was a promise..” Is where you’d start the strum pattern with the mute. And for the second part of the second verse do the same thing. So on ” Hurt I can’t shake..” Is where you’d start to add the mute in with the pattern. Also the first half of the first verse sounds good with single down strums, and then on “Show, never tell..” Begin to strum D UU D to get into a groove. Wish y’all luck. The comments have really helped me so I’m paying it forward. ❤❤❤

  11. I agree DDU works great with this song!!!

  13. crystal kai

    thats a mood

  14. Strumming:
    DDU DDU
    Works perfectly!

  15. DDU DDU
    Works perfectly!

  16. If you search up the song directly it’s different than going through the Billie Eilish songs. Someone changed it for I don’t know why.

  17. Why am I here I don’t even play the uke!

  18. i just do DDDxDDD for the strum ocationally just doing down strokes repeated so yeah :)

  19. motomotolikesyou

    +6 to me is easier

    • some how can manage to almost be billie eilish

      but it’s already easy? if you need to be slower just do single down strokes. :)

  20. Sarah BAiley

    this would be the best comment section ever if this was out of context

    “DU DU DUU U D works well for me”
