Intro: Cmaj7 Cm G

Verse:

Cmaj7    Cm       G                                   Cmaj7
 Often I am upset that I cannot fall in love but I guess 
                  Cm                       G
This avoids the stress of falling out of it 
Cmaj7        Cm         G                                      Cmaj7
 Are you tired of me yet? I'm a little sick right now but I swear 
               Cm                          G
When I'm ready I will fly us out of here 

Chorus:
 Em  C G
 Ooo oo oo, I'll cut my hair 
 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo, To make you stare 
 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo I'll hide my chest 
           Em                        Cm           G
 And I'll figure out a way to get us out of here 

 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo   x4

Verse:
Cmaj7              Cm        G                                           Cmaj7
 Turn off your porcelain face, I can't really think right now and this place 
               Cm                       G
 Has too many colours enough to drive all of us insane 
           Cmaj7      Cm                 G
 Are you dead? Sometimes I think I'm dead 
                                                 Cmaj7
 Cause I can feel ghosts and ghouls wrapping my head 
                   Cm                G
 But I don't wanna fall asleep just yet 

Chorus:
 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo My eyes went dark 
 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo I don't know where 
 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo, My pupils are 
            Em                      Cm           G
 But I'll figure out a way to get us out of here 

Bridge:
Em                       
 Get a load of this monster 
A
 He doesn't know how to communicate 
C                              
His mind is in a different place 
 G                                Bm7
Will everybody please give him a little bit of space
Em 
 Get a load of this train wreck                               
A                                              C          
 His hair's a mess and he doesn't know who he is yet 
                Cmaj7
 But little do we know, the stars 
                   G
 Welcome him with open arms 

Chorus:
 Em  C  G 
 Ooo oo oo, Time is 
 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo, Slowly 
 Em  C  G
 Ooo oo oo, Tracing his face 
       Em         Cm                      G
 But strangely he feels at home in this place

and (em) ddu (c) ddu (g) ddu u dudu <— for chorus
and (all chords) ddu u dudu <—- in bridge
——————————————————————
( yw, also u should argue abt tvd ships in the reply so i can read them :)

clarioswife

ew bye i like caroline and klaus, and damon and elena , and matt n rebekah

Rosa

Rude, this song is a beautiful song that tries to describe what it is like for non-binary people, and yet you’re hating on it. This just kinda sounds like your homophobic and don’t take how these things are real, and people get abused by it by people like you. Try to live in one of these people’s shoes for one day and see how you feel never know your identity. If you don’t like it, then leave.

Expendonia

I love this song for enby rep of course but I also appreciate the aromantic rep about the pain and confusion of watching other people fall in love so easily or just falling in love at all and knowing that you’ll always be on the outside looking in, but at least it’s peaceful there

Acid

This song is kind of my life all I’ve done so far is cut my hair, I don’t know who I am yet, and I hope I get welcomed with open arms

Layloo

That’s sweet.

AdaJay

You will

Flower of a million cats

Smiles for Miles

A good strumming pattern for this song is

Cmaj7: ⬇️⬇️then quick ⬆️
Cm: ⬇️⬇️then quick ⬆️
G: ⬇️⬇️⬆️⬇️⬇️

Sawyer

Your name is everything

Rune

Another good strumming pattern for G is
⬆⬆⬆⬆⬇⬆⬇⬆

crossbyte

Another good strumming pattern for G is
⬇️⬇️⬆️⬇️⬆️⬇️

Luigi

I would suggest a DD then DDUD faster for g

Chairtle88

On the first two chords it’s closer to the original when you must right after you stum up

ALLY

I think that is a good strum pattern for this song thanks

red

i dont really use a strumming pattern for this song. i just strum slowly and all ‘cool’ but i really have no clue wut im doing

Tanner

yo, me too. I don’t even know how to strum, and ive been trying to learn for 3 months.

marceline and bubblegum's shared sweater

when I was first learning to play, about 5 years ago, I was obsessed with one chord progression and only used that one for 2 years or so. Now, it’s my default, and it”s vv hard to do anything else.

Freddie the cockroach

Lol ur name is greatttt 🙃

killua is cool

im watching adventure time rn omg

Nishinoya-senpai

your name is such a mood and a blessing

AAAAAAAAH

Literterally mood im tryng to pluck more often though to make me sound dope (:>)

iCantWriteSongsHelp

Yeah with the plucking at the end I’m all like wow…I’m cool.

Something creative

I do that on every song ever because i have very little cordination to keep a strum pattern going and sing amd switch chords but i also only really play sad slow love songs so i mean it works.

UM OOK

HAHA same

The Big Mood

Me life in a statement

“Slowly and all cool I really have no idea wut I’m doing”

uwuqueen

or it could be D D U at around 80 bpm for at least the opening but my brain automatic speeds up the bpm when I start singing

jdidgi

what

Sophia

What about the other chords?

Your friend that’s BI

This song is everything to me I don’t know what I would do without is it has got me through a lot 🏳️‍🌈

thatenbykid

thanks my guy also i like your user name

I’m sorry...

I think that the quick up is too much cuz it takes away from the singing

yung gerd

i personally use u du and just play it twice for the g

mebwoe

this song means whatever you need it to mean. it’s an anthem for whomever you need it to be for. that is the beauty of music.

tyler

this is the best comment😌

Lu

Guys. I want to say firstly that I myself am non binary and just love this song. I do want to say though that Im pretty sure (I could be wrong) That Cavetown has gender dysphoria and I’ve heard (again I could be wrong) that he doesn’t really want us talking about it because it makes him uncomfortable. (Please dont hate me I found this information online please correct me if Im wrong though because I love cavetown and want to make sure that this wasnt offending or something <3)

Mara Anderson

Hey! I’m non binary too! :) Much love, and I hope you’re doing well <3

Chairtle88

He comfermed that he is pansexual

Squidwards Left Tentacle

They didn’t ask abt their sexuality they asked abt their gender dysphoria

A gay emo

Cavetown is aro ace

tyler

he doesn’t identify as aro anymore but idk about him. ring asexual i’ve never heard him talk about it since 2018

Siren Edits

what

tyler

when ive never heard him say that

Moo

i’m pretty sure he’s on the aromantic spectrum, not fully aro

closetted_bisexual_weaboo

I’m non binary as well! I haven’t come out to anybody yet though, does anyone have any tips?

nonbinaryyy_charlie

non binary also. im out and i understand being stressed because any non binary gender is a hard concept for some people to grasp. before i officially came out, i had a pin that said they/them on it and when people asked me about it i would explain. i didn’t advertise it but when people misgendered me or called me by my dead name i would correct them. best of luck <3

Lilac Feelings

Come out first to people you trust and you know are okay with the LGBT community. If you’re unsure, subtlety ask them what they think about it and non-binary people. I’m non-binary myself and out to everyone except my family, because they don’t accept things like that. Don’t be afraid if they aren’t supportive, humans are afraid of change sometimes, so you have to give them time before you truly can tell if they should stay in your life or not. And if you ever change labels, that okay too! Getting to know yourself and put labels on who you are is difficult, so changing the labels to how well they fit current you is okay! Even if loved ones don’t fully accept you, there are online communities and people like me who will. I wish you good health and good luck, dear!

closetted_bisexual_weaboo

thank you so much for the support. I came out to my two best friends and they were very supportive! you guys are great.

RandomMusicalFanThatPlaysUkulele

Omg ur name is literally me.

sea foam

are you a closetted homo AND weaboo or does ur family already know you like anime

closetted_bisexual_weaboo

i’m a closetted homo my parents already know i like anime haha

Tanner

Although im not non binary, I am trans, which can be difficult in a transphobic household, but I get by. I guess I suggest waiting till your ready. that could be days or months or years from now, just know its always easier if you yourself are ready to come out. no body can tell you when your ready. I know I wasn’t, and that’s lead me into a pretty bad rabbit hole.

Something creative

Yeah i can vouch that because i was forced into coming out and it has caused lots of family struggles where on my end it ruined my relationship with my mom to the point of not feeling comfortable around her at all

Lesbihonest

one of my best friends is non-bianary, I say come out to people you trust and you know will except you, just keep in mind it might be hard for people to get used to the pronouns, but if they are your close friends, they are probably trying their best <3

Something creative

Idk how much this would help but make safe and smart decisions about who amd how you come out but it doesnt have to be a big deal and it should feel casual and not totally terrifying.

Bob Tea

this was a while ago, so, any updates on coming out to anyone?

ALLY

Your right it is a really cute song

S H I T E A T E R

Hell ya man me being the pansexual maniac that I am it’s just like damn this song hits kinda hard and it’s just really weird cause I’ve already came out to some of my family and went through a whole thing with my ex girlfriend so now my family thinks I’m straight now cause I have a boyfriend and it’s just funny ya

claire <3

Same here!! A pansexual with a messed up past with an ex girlfriend and in a heterosexual relationship. Life’s crazy XD (also this song is absolutely amazing)

Flower of a million cats

Three of my best friends are LGBTQ+ and they are all super-comfortable. I know one who is non-binary and had a really hard time coming out to their parents because they flipped out the first time, but after they understood. They are also bisexual and so is one other. My last is pansexual. Just know that no matter what, we are here for you.

Gay Potato

I’m nonbinary and tried to come out to my family as trans when I was 8. I knew I wasn’t male or female but I didn’t know much about the lgbt community so I thought there was just boy at girl. My mom flipped out on me and spent years making fun of me and telling me I was wrong about my gender. I finally accepted myself and I tried to bring up the topic again and she got really mad. I don’t know what to do.

Gay Potato

Btw I’m 14 now and am out and using they/them pronouns and a new name with one of my friends. I’ve also been trying to change my name cuz I didn’t like it since I was 3.

a trans dude

having not accepting family sucks, so i’m sorry that you have to deal with that. i know how crappy it is firsthand as well. but you’re brave for being yourself despite what others think. you are strong.

adrian (they/them)

as another closeted nonbinary (i’m genderqueer [demigender]) person, everything abouve me about coming out and all that- i LOVE YOU GUYS OKAY.

iCantWriteSongsHelp

UwU

tyler

actually robbie(cavetown) has said he’s not trans and he’s also doesn’t identify as aromantic anymore and as for him saying he’s pansexual i’ve never heard this he’s never put a direct label on his sexuality

mhm blake

he gay and he identifies as male

Pansexual Pancakes

There seem to be quite a bit of non-binary peeps on this website. I just have one thing to say, GET SUPPORTED BY YOUR PANSEXUAL MOTHER. I DONT KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND I DONT CARE BUT I AM YOUR NEW MOTHER TAKE MY LOVE AND SUPPORT

Alaster

You are amazing my friend

BakuHoe Catsuki

ya’ll this is to everyone saying RoBbIe Is ___. WE DONT NEED TO KNOW. IF HE’S NOT COMFORTABLE TALKING ABT IT THEN YOU SHOULDNT TALK ABT IT TO OTHER PPL. PLEASE. thank you

Wyatt

i’m so bored with this covid-19 stuff so i decided learning songs would be nice. this song is close to my heart so i felt it was the perfect one to learn.

Kirishima_RedRiot

imagine people from the future look at this and has no idea what covid-19 is.

lesbihonest

don’t worry everyone from now to the 2080s will know about covid-19 it’s gonna be like a movie or something and kids will definitely learn about it in school

Claire <3

And think about it, someone’s eventually gonna fail a test about us…

Boneless

I accidentally played the Cmaj and Cm about an hour ago and was like “Oh, wait a minute…” and now here I am waiting for Covid-19 break to be over while I’m strumming away at the ukulele

Something creative
