Intro:
Abm
Ohh...

Verse:
      E                     Abm
Got a boy back home in Michigan
       Gb 
And it tastes like Jack when I'm kissing him
     E                                      Abm
So I told him that I never really liked his friends
         Gb                          B
Now he's gone and he's calling me a bitch again
       E                           Abm
It's a guy that lives in a garden state
       Gb 
And he told me that we'd make it 'til we graduate
     E                                      Abm
So I told him the music would be worth the wait
       Gb                              B
But he wants me in the kitchen with a dinner plate

Pre-Chorus:
    E                                 Abm
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
           Gb
That we're meant to be
          E                             Abm
But jealousy, jealousy, jealousy, jealousy
         Gb          B
Gets the best of me
      E                          Abm
Look, I don't mean to frustrate, but I
Gb
Always make the same mistakes, yeah
E                              Abm   Gb  B
Always make the same mistakes 'cause

Chorus:
           E     Abm  Gb
I'm bad at love -ooh-ooh-
                           E 
But you can't blame me for tryin'
         Abm     Gb
You know I'd be lyin' sayin'
B            E    Abm  Gb
You were the one -ooh-ooh-
                   E 
That could finally fix me
        Abm    Gb
Lookin' at my history
    B      E 
I'm bad at love

Verse:
      E
Got a girl with California eyes
Abm     Gb
 And I thought that she could really be the one this time
      E                                  Abm
But I never got the chance to make her mine
            Gb                        B
Because she fell in love with little thin white lines
E                         Abm
London girl with an attitude
         Gb
We never told no one but we look so cute
E                              Abm
Both got way better things to do
      Gb                              B
But I always think about it when I'm riding through

Pre-chrous:
    E                                 Abm
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
           Gb
That we're meant to be
          E                             Abm
But jealousy, jealousy, jealousy, jealousy
         Gb          B
Gets the best of me
      E                          Abm
Look, I don't mean to frustrate, but I

Bridge:
E                     Abm    Gb 
  I know that you're afraid
                    E
I'm gonna walk away
                      Abm    Gb
Each time the feeling fades
              B             E
Each time the feeling fades
                    Abm    Gb
I know that you're afraid
                    E
I'm gonna walk away

  1. TheyCallMeJewels

    for the last three chords i do F A C

  2. it actually is “i always think about her when im riding through”

  3. ukulady2018

    I sing and play this song at the same time and was wondering if there is a good sub for the swear word in the first verse where she says “Now he’s gone and calling me a _____ again”

  4. The first time I heard this song on the radio I loved it, but I though it was ‘Ready to Love’, not ‘Bad at Love’ and I couldn’t find the song anywhere. So glad I found it!!

  5. JustSomeoneWithADream

    No, it’s “riding through”

  6. The lyrics in the second verse are “I always think about her when i’m bad and blue” not “riding through”

  7. How do you find the strumming pattern?

  8. I can’t find the strumming patterns are they written anywhere?

  9. It’s okay, but a lot of these chords don’t fit in with the song.

  10. phanic! at the hometown

    just saying…i’d strum it either dduudu or ddu (i think it sounds better the second way but it’s all preference)

  11. I really liked how it sounded with a capo either on the 1st or 2nd fret

  12. what would be a good strumming pattern for this song

  13. i love halsey so much

  14. Great job!
