Intro -x2-: E B A

Verse 1:
E   B
he said
A
there's nothing like your smile, sort of
  E           B          A
subtle, and perfect and real
 E   B
he said,
      A
you never knew how wonderful that 
  E           B           A
smile could make someone feel
    E   B
and he knew
    A
whenever you get bored you'd scribble 
     E            B             A
stars on the cuffs of your jeans
    E     B
and he noticed
           A
that you still fill out the quizzes that they
 E            B      A
put in those teen magazines

Pre-Chorus:
        Dbm     Gb
but he kept it all
   B        E
inside his head
         Dbm     Gb    B
what he saw, he left unsaid
                A
and though he wanted to,
             E
he couldn't talk to you,
                     B
he couldn't find the way,
                     B7
but he would always say,

Chorus:
            A    E
if I could tell her
          Dbm          B
tell her everything I see
             A   E
if I could tell her
           Dbm          B
how she's everything to me,

      A       E       Ab7   Dbm
but we're a million worlds apart
    A                              B
and I don't know how I would even start,
             E     B    A
If I could tell her
             E     B    A
if I could tell her

Interlude -x2-: E B A

Verse 2:
 E   B
He  thought
A
you looked really pretty- eh erm,
A
it looked pretty COOL, when you put
  E          B             A
indigo streaks in your hair
    E      B
and he wondered
   A
how you learned to dance like all the 
 E           B         A
rest of the world isn't there

Pre-Chorus:
        Dbm     Gb
but he kept it all
   B        E
inside his head
         Dbm     Gb    B
what he saw, he left unsaid

Chorus:
            A    E
if I could tell her
          Dbm          B
tell her everything I see
             A   E
if I could tell her
           Dbm          B
how she's everything to me,
      A       E       Ab7   Dbm
but we're a million worlds apart
    A                              B
and I don't know how I would even start,
             E     B    A
if I could tell her

Bridge:
            C
if I could tell her
                G                         C
but what do you do, when there's this great divide?
                G           C
-zoey: he just seems so far away...-
                G                            D
and what do you do, when the distance is too wide?

-zoey: it's like I don't know anything-
     G
and how do you say,
   C
I love you
   C
I love you
   C
I love you
   C
I love you

Outro:
      C       G     D     Em
but we're a million worlds apart
     C              G            D
and I don't know how I would even start
            G    D  Em  C
if I could tell her
       G   D   C
if I could

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.
