Intro -x2-: Bb Gm7

Bb                                Cm
I told you I was looking for some empathy
Well you fooled me
Eb       F                            Bb     Gm7
Just a touch and a thought and I was gone
Bb                                      Cm                                                                                
And now someone’s gonna get to know the better you
When I was supposed to
Eb      F                        Bb  Gm7  Bb  Gm7
Oh, oh, oh why did it have to be you

I guess
Now the next time there’s an opportunity
I’ll tread more carefully
Eb         F                       Bb   Gm7
My heart’s running out of cellotape
You know 
How is it I’ve never felt that way before
Oh, I was so sure
Eb      F                        Bb   Gm7  Bb  Gm7
Oh, oh, oh it wasn’t going to be you

Eb                    D
Why do all the red flags
Gm                     Eb 
Just look like so much fun, oh
I have a habit of
Searching for the damage
To share my love
Eb               D
I promised to be numb
Gm                       Eb 
But somehow you were the one
Now to unwind
F           Bb   Gm7  Bb  Gm7
Months of a good time

Bb                       Cm 
People will tell me that I messed up
And it wasn’t love
Eb      F                        Bb 
And I’m secretly hoping they are right, because
Bb                     -Cm-
Whatever it was it was wonderful
But non functional
-Eb-    -F-
Oh, oh, ohhhh
                           Bb   Gm7  Bb  Gm7
I really hope I don’t love you

Bb Cm F Eb F

  1. michelleyun99

    +2 w/ cmaj7 instead of c

  2. Do +2 and change the c to a cmaj7, it sounds really nice

  3. – Bb works better with the A string played open
    – Play the first F in the verses with the G string open
    – If you play Eb as a barred D, don’t. Play it like the diagram
    – The second F is played with the C string on the third fret, but otherwise the same as a normal F
    – Go back into Gm7 after the Bb in the verses

    idk it just sounds better to me that wat

  4. annetheswabbie

    I tuned my soprano a full step down and put the autoscroll on, it was art. SPICY MEATABOLL YASSSSSSSSS

  5. geese.with.wings

    I think Cmaj7 sounds better than Bb

  6. IJustLikePlayingTheUke

    I love this so much! All the other chords I found sound weird, but this sounded right, even on my soprano uke!

  7. YouGotNoJams

    Does anyone know what the strumming pattern is? Please? I need help ;-;

  8. Kylee723

    It’s so much fun to play! I LOVE IT!!!

  9. AmethystTheCat


  10. FrancesIvy

    +2 and -3 are a lot easier :)

  11. lalizzziela

    I love it! The original seems great but it’s a little hard if you’re a beginner, so I think -3 is awesome!

  12. While Dodie plays this song on mostly barre chords which already makes this tab different, the Bb should be a Bbmaj7.

  13. I love this song so thank you for putting it up!

  14. Finally I have wanted to play this for so long. Thanks ?

  15. YAYYY
