Intro: Dbm7 Aadd9 B 

Da Da Da Da

Verse:
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
The smell of your skin lingers on me now
Dbm7 Aadd9 B			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
You're probably on your flight back to your home town
Dbm7 Aadd9 B			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
I need some shelter of my own protection baby
Dbm7 Aadd9 B			Dbm7 Aadd9 B - hold -
To be with myself and center, clarity
Peace, Serenity

Chorus:
A         E                    B
   I hope you know, I hope you know
     B                       
   That this has nothing to do with you
A         E                    B
   It's personal, myself and I
     Dbm                     
   We've got some straightenin' out to do
A             E                                B
   And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
     Dbm                     
   But I've got to get a move on with my life
A         E                    B
   It's time to be a big girl now
    B                        
   And big girls don't cry
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
   Don't cry, Don’t cry, Don’t cry...

Verse:
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
The path that I'm walking, I must go alone
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown, full grown
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B - hold it -
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay

Chorus:
A         E                    B
   I hope you know, I hope you know
     B                       
   That this has nothing to do with you
A         E                    B
   It's personal, myself and I
     Dbm                     
   We've got some straightenin' out to do
A             E                                B
   And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
     Dbm                     
   But I've got to get a move on with my life
A         E                    B
   It's time to be a big girl now
    B                        
   And big girls don't cry
   
Verse:
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B
Like the little school mate in the school yard
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B 
We'll play jacks and uno cards
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B 
I'll be your best friend and you'll be my Valentine
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B 
Yes you can hold my hand if you want to
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B 
'Cause I want to hold yours too
Dbm7 Aadd9 B 			Dbm7 Aadd9 B 
We'll be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds

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

Chorus:
A         E                    B
   I hope you know, I hope you know
     B                       
   That this has nothing to do with you
A         E                    B
   It's personal, myself and I
     Dbm                     
   We've got some straightenin' out to do
A             E                                B
   And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
     Dbm                     
   But I've got to get a move on with my life
A         E                    B
   It's time to be a big girl now
    B                        
   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….
