Intro -x2-: Am  G     C  F

Verse:
           Am           G  
come home early after class
            C                           F
don't be hanging round the back of the schoolyard
             Am              G  
i've been called up by a teacher
          C                                     F
she says she can't even reach you cause you're so far
              Am               G  
you've been talking with your fist
            C                          F
we didn't raise you up like this, now did we
                   Am             G  
there have been changes in this house
             C                             F
things that you don't know about in this family

Pre-Chorus:
               Dm              F
it don't make sense, but nevertheless
             C                         G
you gotta believe us, it's all for the best
               Dm
it don't make sense
               F
the way things go
                G  
son you should know

Chorus:
           Am       G     C
sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
           Am    G        C
sometimes two homes are better than one
                 Am               G                   C
some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
               Dm          F
yeah you'll understand

when you love someone.

Interlude: Am  G  C  F

Verse:
            Am              G
There ain't no one here to blame
           C                         F
nothing's going to change with your old friends
       Am                G
Your room will stay the same
               C                   F
'cause you'll only be away on the weekends

Pre-Chorus:
               Dm               F
it don't make sense but nevertheless
            C                           G            
You gotta believe us, it's all for the best
               Dm
it don't make sense
             F
it don't add up
              G                  
we'll always love you no matter what

Chorus:
           Am       G    C
sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
           Am   G         C
sometimes two homes are better than one
                 Am             G                    C
some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
                 Dm        F
yeah you'll understand
                         Am  G  C  F
when you love someone
                         Am  G  C  F
when you love someone

Bridge:
           Am           G
come home early after class
            C                            F
don't be hanging around the back of the schoolyard
               Am            G
and if we're crying on the couch
       C
don't let it freak you out
               F
this has been so hard

Chorus:
           Am       G                C
sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
               Am     G       C
sometimes the best intention just ain't enough
                  Am              G                   C
some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
                Dm        F
yeah you'll understand
                         Am  G  C  F
when you love someone
                         Am  G  C  F
when you love someone
                         Am  G  C  F
when you love someone
                         Am  G  C  F
when you love someone

  1. for some reason I thought this was gonna be the pants song from bmc lol

  2. I figured out the strumming pattern. Tricky at first but if you play along to the original song you pick it up quick:
    D-D-U-U-D-D-U-U-D-U-D-D-U-U-D-U-U-D-U-U-D-U
    It’s just a weird and fast transition between D and G but just remember to play up for the d chord twice. Hope this helps. It helped me.

  3. where is the strumming pattern?

  4. Forget that I can’t figure it out ughhh

  5. +3 ***

  6. +2 for the real version

  7. coolkid14952
