Intro:
Fm Db Bbm
Fm Db Bbm

Verse 1: 
Fm
He was certain
So was I
Db
There was comfort
In her sighs
Bbm
Dreams and ideas should not be the same thing
Fm                     C
You waited smiling for this

Verse 2:
Fm
Oh she’d want it
If she knew
Db
She could take it
I thought too
Bbm
Be careful be cautious but you just wished harder
Fm                     C
You waited smiling for this

Chorus: 
          F                              Bb
“But they love you!” over and over “they love you!”
Thousands and thousands of
Dm
Eyes just like mine
C
Aching to find
         Bb
Who they are
         F                             Bb
And they love you! oh you can feel how they love you!
Coated and warm but that’s
Dm
All they can do
C
Words only get through
           Bb
If they’re sharp

Interlude:
Fm Db Bbm
Fm Db Bbm

Verse 3:
Fm
Oh how fitting
For one so fake
Db
Make me a fairy
Whatever it takes
Bbm
And just like her tale my dream was a scam
   Fm                     C
Oh you waited smiling for this

Verse 4:
Fm
I am burnt out
I smell of smoke
Db
It seeps through her cracks and so I start to choke
Bbm
Sentences sit in her mouth that are templated
Fm                     C
You waited smiling for this

Chorus:
          F                              Bb
“But they love you!” over and over “they love you!”
Thousands and thousands of
Dm
Eyes just like mine
C
Aching to find
         Bb
Who they are
         F                             Bb
And they love you! oh you can feel how they love you!
Coated and warm but that’s
Dm
All they can do
C
Words only get through
           Bb
If they’re sharp

Bridge:
Bbsus4                     Bb
I can just talk about it
Bbsus4                     Bb
Maybe I'll talk about it
Bbsus4                     Bb
I'll never talk about it
Bbsus4                     Bb
I cannot talk about it

Verse 5:
Fm
Don't build hope on something broken
Db              Bbm
I am not cartoon
Fm
Cry for help
I am not joking
Db                  Bbm
I might just leave soon

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONGGGG

caligumu

howdy crew, for the plucking (on the og chords) i’ve been doing
C string (1x)
E string (2x)
G string (1x)
repeated like twice for each chord (kinda just playing it repeatedly and just switching chords along w/ it) :^)

caligumu

ok so when I first posted this I made a mistake,,C (1x) E (2x) G (1x) E (2x) and repeat lol

Your.Fellow.Weeb

You are a god.

Mrs. Tyler Joseph (or Mrs. Josh Dun Idc)

I pluck G-A, C, E throughout the whole song, and I pay really close attention to dynamics. They really do make a world of difference!

dddaisy

im in love w your name UwU

UkiKate

-5 works best for me :)

Sofia Portela

I love this song and I’m so happy it came out but what is the strumming pattern for this?

prince.of.the.moon

i play stand up bass for an orchestra, and if you just play the basic root of. the chord on a stringed orchestral instrument it sounds really cool

susie

any alternatives to the E chord, I find it so difficult :)

Katatles

E7 works for me

littlealliekitty

there is a fingering that I use that different but still comes out with the E chord

G 4
C 4
E 4
A 2

Ukeulele35

I usually bar the 4th fret and play the a string on the 7th fret if that makes sense.
Like this…
A – 7
E – 4
C – 4
G – 4

twenty-one-phans

pffft on +4 i was skipping the e entirely, i’ve only been playing for a few months, it’s not like i can strech my fingers that far XD

Kimberly Kelsey

There’s another way to play it that I use instead, it’s much easier, the pattern (in the order of gcea) is: 4442 but it’s only “better” if you’re comfortable using your thumb

Ukeulele35

I usually bar the forth fret and and put my pinky on the A string 7th fret. So…
A-7
E-4
C-4
G-4

Alena

This is perfect! Pluck the G string once and then A and E together twice to get the waltz feeling down that she has in her original version! Trust me on the plucking, it doesn’t sound as good with plucking C (I tried both)

Oofmeister3000

Hi, I really like the plucking pattern but did you use this for the original chords or transposed ones?

bannana

+2 is pretty easy. It’s better for higher voices but you can try singing in a lower octave.
