Intro: Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 

Da Da Da Da

Verse:
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
The smell of your skin lingers on me now
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
You're probably on your flight back to your home town
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
I need some shelter of my own protection baby
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb - hold -
To be with myself and center, clarity
Peace, Serenity

Chorus:
E         B                    Gb
   I hope you know, I hope you know
     Gb                       
   That this has nothing to do with you
E         B                    Gb
   It's personal, myself and I
     Abm                     
   We've got some straightenin' out to do
E             B                                Gb
   And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
     Abm                     
   But I've got to get a move on with my life
E         B                    Gb
   It's time to be a big girl now
    Gb                        
   And big girls don't cry
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
   Don't cry, Don’t cry, Don’t cry...

Verse:
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
The path that I'm walking, I must go alone
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown, full grown
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb - hold it -
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay

Chorus:
E         B                    Gb
   I hope you know, I hope you know
     Gb                       
   That this has nothing to do with you
E         B                    Gb
   It's personal, myself and I
     Abm                     
   We've got some straightenin' out to do
E             B                                Gb
   And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
     Abm                     
   But I've got to get a move on with my life
E         B                    Gb
   It's time to be a big girl now
    Gb                        
   And big girls don't cry
   
Verse:
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb
Like the little school mate in the school yard
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 
We'll play jacks and uno cards
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 
I'll be your best friend and you'll be my Valentine
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 
Yes you can hold my hand if you want to
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 
'Cause I want to hold yours too
Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 			Abm7 Eadd9 Gb 
We'll be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds

Bridge:
  Eb                          Abm  
But it's time for me to go home
  Eb                      E  
It's getting late, dark outside
  Eb                    
I need to be with myself and center, clarity
Peace, Serenity

Chorus:
E         B                    Gb
   I hope you know, I hope you know
     Gb                       
   That this has nothing to do with you
E         B                    Gb
   It's personal, myself and I
     Abm                     
   We've got some straightenin' out to do
E             B                                Gb
   And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
     Abm                     
   But I've got to get a move on with my life
E         B                    Gb
   It's time to be a big girl now
    Gb                        
   And big girls don't cry

    Can strumming patterns be included with each song? Learning to do so by ear is really hard, because I’ll think I’m doing correct one second and then I get told that I got it all wrong, it’s quite frustrating really.

  3. Grace Ferrara

    for chorus I use DDUD UUDU

  4. Emmalee shnavosky

    Instead of Caad9 I just do C

  5. I end it with a G chord, but I’m not sure it sounds completely right….
