Intro:
    Db  Fm   Bbm  Ab
    Gb  Bbm  Ebm  Ab

Verse:
            Db                      Fm                   Bbm
Baby really hurt me, crying in the taxi, he don't wanna know me
                     Ab                        Gb     
Says he made the big mistake of dancing in my storm 
Bbm               Ebm Ab
     Says it was poison


                Db             Fm                      Bbm
So I guess I go home into the arms of the girl that I love
                Ab                  Gb
The only love I haven't screwed up
                 Bbm                 Ebm          Ab  
She's so hard to please but she's a forest fire


        Db                         Fm                       Bbm
I do my best to meet her demands, play at romance, we slow dance in the living room
    Ab                         Gb
But all that a stranger would see
       Bbm            Ebm                Ab     
Is one girl swaying alone stroking her cheek

Chorus:
     Db             Fm              Bbm 
They say, you're a little much for me
         Ab      Gb 
You're a liability
         Bbm              Ebm  Ab
You're a little much for me

             Db                Fm            Bbm
So they pull back, make other plans, I understand
      Ab      Gb 
I'm a liability
        Bbm             Ebm    
Get you wild, make you leave
      Ab               Bbm             Ab    Gb       
I'm a little much for eh, a-na-na-na everyone

Verse:
          Db       Fm                Bbm
The truth is I am toy that people enjoy
                Ab                    Gb
'Til all of the tricks don't work anymore 
Bbm                     Ebm       Ab
     And then they are bored of me
       
      
                   Db                          Fm               
I know that it's exciting running through the night but
              Bbm                  Ab                 Gb   
Every perfect summer's eating me alive until you're gone
Bbm          Ebm    Ab
     Better on my own

Chorus:
     Db             Fm              Bbm 
They say, you're a little much for me
         Ab      Gb 
You're a liability
         Bbm              Ebm  Ab
You're a little much for me


             Db                Fm            Bbm
So they pull back, make other plans, I understand
      Ab      Gb 
I'm a liability
        Bbm             Ebm    
Get you wild, make you leave
      Ab               Bbm             Ab    Gb       
I'm a little much for eh, a-na-na-na everyone

Outro:
Fm            Bbm            Ab             Gb
They're gonna watch me disappear into the sun
       Fm        Bbm            Ab             Gb
You're all gonna watch me disappear into the sun

    I think +1 is perfect for lower voices that can’t quite hit the low notes Lorde does and it’s also much easier

  2. +4 is cool

  3. If you have a baritone -1 is easiest and sounds the best with capo on first fret. I usually strum each chord in the intro twice then use DDDU for the rest of the song.

  4. dmaj7 is a nice alternative to gbm too if you want to change it up :-)
