Verse:
D                G    
Here I am again, the same old situation
Bm7                    G    
Why does the guy thing have to be so complicated?
D                           G    
I should’ve played it cool, instead I made a fool
Bm7              G    
Oh, the things I do

Chorus:
D                        E7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Bm7                        A
I do stupid things when it comes to love
G                           E7    
And even if I always end up crying
          E                                                       
Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying  


D       G          Bm7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        G                          D G     Bm7 G    
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

Verse:
D                          G    
I should’ve shut my mouth, I could’ve kept it quiet
Bm7                          G    
I might have freaked him out ’cause I was so excited
D                         G    
But I just couldn’t wait, I took a leap of faith
Bm7              G    
Oh, the things I say

Chorus:
D                        E7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Bm7                        A  
I do stupid things when it comes to love
G                           E7    
And even if I always end up crying
          A                                                     
Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying  


D       G          Bm7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        G                          D G     Bm7 G    
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

Bridge:
Bm7          A        G    
And I think sometimes I tend to be my own worst enemy
Bm7          A        G                                             E7    
And maybe someday I’m gonna catch a shooting star falling out of the blue
          A        A 
Do what I do

Verse:
D                          G    
And just as I’m giving up, my heart is palpitating
Bm7                     G    
Here comes another one and it's so intoxicating
D                     G    
Being where I’ve been I know that in the end
Bm7              G    
I’ll do it all again

Chorus: 
D                        E7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Bm7                        A   
I do stupid things when it comes to love
G                           E7    
And even if I always end up crying
G                           E7    
Well, love will find me, there ain’t no denying    
       A                                                      
That you can’t blame a girl for trying  

Outro: 
D       G          Bm7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        G                          D G     Bm7 G     D
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying
