Intro: Am  F  C

Verse 1:
             Am                       F
Let's wrap a blanket 'round us and go flyin'
           C
Into outer space
            Am                        F
We could be famous, speak a different language
                C
Make our great escape

Pre-Chorus 1:
     Dm
I'll chase the stars inside your eyes
    F                           Am
And follow you into the great unknown
          -nc-
We'll be alone

Chorus 1:
                      F                      C
So let's just play pretend and find a secret place
                F                                    C
When the world around us says that we should act our age
    G            F                                 Am
The day is gonna come when there's no time left to waste
           F             G              C
But we'll never grow up, I say we hide away

Verse 2:
            Am                     F
And build a city, something out of nothing
                  C
Make this place a home -home, home, home-, a home -hey hey hey-yeah-
            Am                     F
Stay make-believing, we'll go disappearing
               C
Who would ever know? -hey hey hey-yeah, hey hey hey-yeah-

Pre-Chorus 2:
       Dm
We'll never be too far apart
       F                           Am
'Cause in the end, you and I both know
                         G
There's somewhere we can go

Chorus 2:
                      F                      C
So let's just play pretend and find a secret place
                F                                    C
When the world around us says that we should act our age
    G            F                                 Am
The day is gonna come when there's no time left to waste
           F             G              C
But we'll never grow up, I say we hide away

Bridge:
 F       C           Am      G
-Ooooooh-ooh,        ooooooh-ooh-
 F       C           Am      G
                           I just want to hide away
-Ooooooh-ooh,        ooooooh-ooh-
 F       C           Am      G
   Hide away, hide awa-a-a-a-ay, hide away
-Ooooooh-ooh,        ooooooh-ooh-
 F       C           Am              G
   Hide away, we'll never grow up, I just want to hide away
-Ooooooh-ooh,        ooooooooooooooh-ooh-
 F       C           Am      G
   Hide away, hide awa-a-a-a-ay, hide away
-Ooooooh-ooh,        ooooooh-ooh-
 F       C           Am     -G-
   Hide away, -ay
-Ooooooh-ooh,        ooooooh-ooh-

Chorus 3:
   G                  F                      C
So let's just play pretend and find a secret place
                F                                    C
When the world around us says that we should act our age
    -nc-         F                                 Am
The day is gonna come when there's no time left to waste
           F             G              C
But we'll never grow up, I say we hide away

Outro:
                      F                      C
So let's just play pretend and find a secret place
                F                                    C
When the world around us says that we should act our age
    G            F                                 Am
The day is gonna come when there's no time left to waste
           F             G              C
But we'll never grow up, I say we hide away
       F               G              C
Don't make me grow up, I say we hide away
