Verse 1:
Bm                     A               G
 I'm not crying on the phone when you call
            Em
 What's the use in begging you to stay?
Bm                A             G
I'm not trying to say words anymore
         Em
Cut me loose, 'cause you're too far away

Chorus:
                Bm               A
To make me feel better, make it alright
                  G                    Em
To give me your sweater, hold my hand tight
               E
Seven days in limbo, push me out the window
           Bm                  A
Nothing in common, nothing to lose
                 G                 Em
Nothing but problems between me and you
                E                    E
With your arms akimbo, seven days in limbo

Seven days

Verse 2:
Bm                 A        G
I'll give all my weapons to you
              Em
We've said it all, no more bones to break
Bm                         A                  G
I'm done thinking that we might just spark enough
               Em
We're broken glass waiting to be washed away

Chorus:
                   Bm              A
Can't make me feel better, make it alright
               G                   Em
Give me your sweater, hold my hand tight
               E                         E
Seven days in limbo, push me out the window
             Bm               A
Nothing in common, nothing to lose
               G                    Em
Nothing but problems between me and you
                 E                    E
With your arms akimbo, seven days in limbo

Seven days

Bridge:
 Bm    A    G   Bm  A  Em
If you love me, let me go
Bm     A    G   Bm   A   Em
If you love me, leave limbo

Chorus:
                   Bm              A
Can't make me feel better, make it alright
                    G                     Em
Can't give me your sweater, hold my hand tight
               E                           E
Seven days in limbo, just push me out the window
            Bm                 A
Nothing in common, nothing to lose
               G                    Em
Nothing but problems between me and you
                 E                     E
With your arms akimbo, seven days in limbo

    has anyone else never heard of this song before?? did she just release it or something ??

    • She did not release it officially. It’s actually one of the older songs (created before her EP, I believe). You won’t find on Spotify, Soundcloud, or Pandora, but there is the original acoustic version (as well as the original version of “wish you were gay”) on YouTube. (it’s not posted on her YouTube channel, but you can tell it is her) Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know about it, because not many people do, since she hasn’t released a studio version yet. Also I would recommend not asking about it on social media because you will probably get attacked by hardcore long-time Billie Eilish fans. Hope this helps :)

    • wha da hel

      It’s very old song man. It was created before dont smile at me came out. The original acoustic version is on Youtube as it “wish you were gay”. It’s not on Spotify, Pandora, or Soundcloud. she did not release a studio version yet, tho so don’t feel bad. At least you found out before the media did.

  3. Does anyone recommend anything other than E or any other chords, I struggle to hit E and I’ve tried different holding styles.
