Intro -x2-: Em G C Am

Verse:
     Em               G      
They send me away to find them a fortune
   C                              Am
a chest filled with diamonds and gold
    Em
The house was awake
       G
With shadows and monsters
      C                        Am
The hallways they echoed and groaned


Em               G
I sat alone, in bed 'til the morning
      C                         Am
I'm crying, "They're coming for me"
    Em                     G
And I tried to hold these secrets inside me
    C                      Am
My mind's like a deadly disease

Chorus:
                   Em    G 
I'm bigger than my body     
                    C     Am  
I'm colder than this home   
                    Em    G  
I'm meaner than my demons       
                     C     Am  
I'm bigger than these bones    

             Em
And all the kids cried out,
         G
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
C                 Am
I can't help this awful energy
Em                   G
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
C             Am
Who is in control?

Verse:
Em                  G
I paced around for hours, I'm empty
   C                          Am
I jumped at the slightest of sounds
    Em                    G
And I couldn't stand the person inside me
   C                       Am
I turned all the mirrors around

Chorus:
                   Em    G 
I'm bigger than my body     
                    C     Am  
I'm colder than this home   
                    Em    G  
I'm meaner than my demons       
                     C     Am  
I'm bigger than these bones    


             Em
And all the kids cried out,
         G
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
C                 Am
I can't help this awful energy
Em                   G
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
C             Am
Who is in control?

Verse:
Em
I'm well acquainted
      G                        C    Am
With villains that live in my bed
     Em
They beg me to write them
    G                          C    Am
So they'll never die when I'm dead


    Em
And I've grown familiar
      G                        C    Am
With villains that live in my head
     G
They beg me to write them
    G                        C    Am
So I'll never die when I'm dead

Chorus:
                   Em    G 
I'm bigger than my body     
                    C     Am  
I'm colder than this home   
                    Em    G  
I'm meaner than my demons       
                     C     Am  
I'm bigger than these bones    


             Em
And all the kids cried out,
         G
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
C                 Am
I can't help this awful energy
Em                   G
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
C              Am
Who is in control?

the final verse is supposed to be played twice and then the outro.

Star_Boy4

I recommend using a capo, and putting it on the 2nd fret. It makes it a little higher but to me it sounds right.

Abbydabbydoo2903

Love this song thank you!

Dynamiqueen

MY FAVORITE SONG!!!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Ruby

Hey this is really easy

starrylatte

ddu

Nezzy

Wow,that was much easier than expected. Great for a beginner like myself. But I’m really confused on the strumming pattern…

Scarcie

Try using DD,UU,DU or on the chorus I tried the same strum pattern but muting the stings after The first down strum

Jacey

The chords seem a little too high…it just doesn’t sound right as it is. I’m also a bit confused on the strumming pattern as well…..

Emo Emu

Halsey repeats the last verse one more time

dd

In the real song she repeated the last verse
