Verse 1:
    G
We keep behind closed doors
                    Em
Every time I see you I die a little more
                         C
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
                  G   D
It'll never be enough
        G
As you drive me to my house
                           Bm
I can't stop these silent tears from rolling down
                        C
You and I both have to hide on the outside
                            G            D
Where I can't be yours and you can't be mine

Pre-Chorus:
       Am        G                      Am      D
But I know this, we got a love that is homeless

Chorus:
                 G
Why can't I hold you in the street?
                             Em
Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?
                      C
I wish that it could be like that
              C 
Why can't it be like that?
            G   D
Cause I'm yours


               G
Why I can't I say that I'm in love?
                           Em
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
                      C
I wish that it could be like that
              C
Why can't it be like that?
            G   D
Cause I'm yours

Verse 2:
         G
It's obvious you're meant for me
                       Bm
Every piece of you it just fits perfectly
                     C
Every second every thought I'm in so deep
                       G      D
But I'll never show it on my face

Pre-Chorus:
        Am         G                     Am      D
But we know this, we got a love that is homeless

Chorus:
               G
Why can't you hold me in the street?
                             Em
Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?
                      C
I wish that it could be like that
              C
Why can't we be like that?
            G   D
Cause I'm yours
               G
Why I can't I say that I'm in love?
                           Em
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
                      C
I wish that it could be like that
              C
Why can't we be like that?
            G   D
Cause I'm yours

Bridge:
Em              D              G
 I don't wanna live love this way
               Am
I don't wanna hide us away
Em              D            G
 I wonder if it ever will change
       Am            C        D  
I'm living for that day, someday

Chorus:
          G 
When you hold me in the street
                        Em 
And you kiss me on the dance floor
                     C 
I wish that we could be like that
               
Why can't we be like that?
           D
Cause I'm yours, I'm yours


Ohhhh
               G
Why can't you hold me in the street?
                             Em
Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?
                      C
I wish that it could be like that
              C
Why can't it be like that?
            G   D
Cause I'm yours
               G
Why I can't I say that I'm in love?
                           Em
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
                      C
I wish that it could be like that
              C
Why can't we be like that?
             G  D
Cause I'm yours

Outro:
             C 
Why can't we be like that?
                          G 
Wish we could be like that

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
