Intro: Gmaj7 Dmaj7 Em Dmaj7

Verse 1:
Gmaj7
Don't be that way
      Dmaj7
Fall apart twice a day
       Em                          Dmaj7
I just wish you could feel what you say
Gmaj7
Show, never tell
      Dmaj7
But I know you too well
        Em                       A    Asus4   A 
Kind of mood that you wish you could sell

Chorus:
   Gmaj7
If teardrops could be bottled
           Dmaj7
There'd be swimming pools filled by models
            Em                              Gb
Told "that tight dress is what makes you a whore"
      Gmaj7
If "I love you" was a promise
          Dmaj7
Would you break it, if you're honest
         Em                                 A   Asus4   A 
Tell the mirror what you know she's heard before
Gmaj7     Gb       Bm
Idontwannabeyouanymore

Verse 2:
Gmaj7
Hands getting cold
       Dmaj7
Losing feeling's getting old
      Em              Dmaj7
Was I made from a broken mold?
Gmaj7
Hurt, I can't shake
           Dmaj7
We've made every mistake
     Em                    A   Asus4   A 
Only you know the way that I break

Chorus:
   Gmaj7
If teardrops could be bottled
           Dmaj7
There'd be swimming pools filled by models
            Em                              Gb
Told "that tight dress is what makes you a whore"
      Gmaj7
If "I love you" was a promise
          Dmaj7
Would you break it, if you're honest
         Em                                 A
Tell the mirror what you know she's heard before
Gmaj7     Gb
Idontwannabeyou
Gmaj7     Gb
Idontwannabeyou
Gmaj7     Gb           Bm
Idontwannabeyou... anymore

  2. yeehawgirl

    omg how did it go i hope you did well i wouldnt be surprised if you did well your amazing:)))))))

  3. omg howd it go

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

  5. oh ma gawd u will do great!!!

  6. i hope that’s a joke lol

  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. ❤❤❤

  14. Strumming:
    DDU DDU
    Works perfectly!

  15. DDU DDU

  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”
