Verse 1:
                   C
Let me tell you a story
                  F
About a boy and a girl
                       C
It's kinda short kinda boring
                 F
But the end is a whirl
          Am
They were just 16
         G
When the people were mean
         F
So they didn't love themselves
            C
Now they're gone
                F
Headstones on a lawn
 
Verse 2:
            C
When I was younger
                   F
I knew a boy and a boy
                       C
Best friends with each other
                            F
But always wished they were more
          Am
Coz they loved one another
    G                                    F
But never discovered cause they were too afraid
               C
Of what they'd say
                   F
Moved to different states
 
Chorus:
         G                                 F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
            C                             G
It ain't funny, it ain't pretty, it ain't sweet
        Em                                   F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
       C                                   G
But I think that it could work for you and me
              C                    F
Just wait and see
                         C         F
It's not the end of the story
 
Verse 3:
                   C
Now it's on to the sequel
                F
About me and my friend
                           C
See, both our parents were evil
                  F
So we both made a bet
      Am
If we worked till we saved
         G
We could both run away
         F
And we'd have a better life
          C
And I was right
                  F
I wonder if she's alright
 
Chorus:
         G                                 F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
            C                             G
It ain't funny, it ain't pretty, it ain't sweet
        Em                                   F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
       C                                   G
But I think that it could work for you and me
              C                    F
Just wait and see
                         C         F         C
It's not the end of the story
 
Bridge:
        F                           C
And the movies always running in my head
        F                               C
All the people, all the lovers, all my friends
       F                                    C
And I hope that they'll all get their happy end
       F
In the end
 
Chorus:
         G                                 F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
            C                             G
It ain't funny, it ain't pretty, it ain't sweet
        Em                                   F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
       C                                   G
But I think that it could work for you and me
              C                    F
Just wait and see
                         C         F         C
It's not the end of the story
