Intro: Fm Db Ab Eb

            Fm                             Db
Your little brother never tells you but he loves you so
              Ab                         Eb
You said your mother only smiled on her TV show
            Fm                            Db
You're only happy when your sorry head is filled with dope
           Ab                                Eb
I hope you make it to the day you're twenty eight years old


       Fm                             Db
You're tripping like you're saturated sunlight
       Ab                            Eb
You're spilling like an overflowing sink
       Fm                                Db
You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
       Ab                                  Eb
And I'm tearing through the pages and the ink


              Fm
Everything is blue
               Db
His pills, his hands, his jeans
            Ab
And now I'm covered in the colors
     Eb
Pull apart at the seams
            Fm       Db 
It makes me blue
            Ab        Eb
It makes me blue
              Fm
Everything is grey
              Db
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
             Ab
And now he's so devoid of color
         Eb
He don't know what it means
            Fm       Db
It makes me blue
            Ab        Eb
It makes me blue


           Fm                             Db
You were a vision in the morning when the light came through
         Ab                         Eb
And I've only felt religion when I lay with you
            Fm                          Db
Said you'll never be forgiven till your boys are too
          Ab                             Eb
I'm still waking every morning but it's not with you


       Fm                             Db
You're tripping like you're saturated sunlight
       Ab                            Eb
You're spilling like an overflowing sink
       Fm                                Db
You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
       Ab                                  Eb
And I'm tearing through the pages and the ink


              Fm
Everything is blue
               Db
His pills, his hands, his jeans
            Ab
And now I'm covered in the colors
     Eb
Pull apart at the seams
            Fm       Db 
It makes me blue
            Ab        Eb
It makes me blue
              Fm
Everything is grey
              Db
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
             Ab
And now he's so devoid of color
         Eb
He don't know what it means
            Fm       Db
It makes me blue
            Ab        Eb
It makes me blue


              Fm       Db
Everything is blue
              Ab        Eb
Everything is blue
              Fm       Db
Everything is blue
              Ab        Eb
Everything is blue


 Fm          
    You were red and you liked me because I was blue
 Db
    You touched me and suddenly I turned into a lilac sky
 Ab
    Then you decided purple 
 Eb
    Just wasn't for you


              Fm
Everything is blue
               Db
His pills, his hands, his jeans
            Ab
And now I'm covered in the colors
     Eb
Pull apart at the seams
            Fm       Db 
It makes me blue
            Ab        Eb
It makes me blue
              Fm
Everything is grey
              Db
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
             Ab
And now he's so devoid of color
         Eb
He don't know what it means
            Fm       Db
It makes me blue
            Ab        Eb
It makes me blue

The lyrics are wrong. It makes me blue should be And it’s blue

singing flower

wrong lyric: “your tripping like a saturated sunlight”
it supposed to be: “your dripping like a saturated sunrise”

MoxedMaverick

I like doing D hit for the strumming pattern

Shelly Dashandra

Ha ha ha, SAME

yinyang

This song made me cry when I played it

xryanrossx

if you want to do the stripped version play the spoken part like this: (chords are in brackets)
(Am) art is not
(F) what i create
(C) i create
(G) chaos
it may not be entirely right but its how i play it

emmacochrane

The “everything is blue” that is repeated should be at the end, not in the middle. Also, it’s “I was a lilac sky” not
“I turned into a lilac sky”

Grace

pretty sure they got the words right for that part, actually :)

ryan

no, these words are incorrect

Shera

i do it like this DDUDU

That_realist

When ever I strum, I do D rest D so it like fills up the spaces between chord for the verses, but when it starts at the chorus I do DDU-UDU slower then normally, because even when you play it slowly, it still sounds like you are rushing the lyrics. The best sound is -2 but the easiest for beginners is just 0. The speaking part is a little awkward if you only play the one chord in the front, so I do suggest finding another chord to play halfway through those, but I haven’t found any good ones yet.

wanderlust406

I just go through the Am, F, C, G progression through each line of the speaking part, to fill the space and keep it moving

elyse03

-5

crushworthyxo

this song is about Halsey sleeping with a Silver Fox lol

carsoncasiano

i just realized that

Brody

It’s actually written about her relationship with Matt Healy. The silver in his hair refers to the silver streak he always insisted on keeping near the from of his hair and the blue pills reference to what is suspected to be valium which Healy was/is addicted to. The song goes through the different stages of their relationship, starting off vibrant and slowly diminishing to grey nothingness with Halsey saying that, for her, the colour blue represents the unknown and unexplored. I’d check out Spotify’s ‘behind the lyrics’ feature – it tells you everything you need to know! :)
