Intro: B Abm E Gb
 
Verse 1:
B                           Abm
Make sure nobody sees you leave
                                    E
Hood over your head, keep your eyes down
                                 Ebm
Tell your friends you're out for a run
          Gb
You’ll be flushed when you return
B                         Abm
Take the road less traveled by
                              E
Tell yourself you can always stop
                          Ebm
What started in beautiful rooms
          Gb
Ends with meetings in parking lots
 
Chorus:
Ebm                        E
And that's the thing about illicit affairs
    Gb                        B
And clandestine meetings and longing stares
     Ebm                E
It's born from just one single glance
       Gb
But it dies and it dies and it dies
  B
a million little times
 
Verse 2:
B                       Abm
Leave the perfume on the shelf
                             E
That you picked out just for him
                       Ebm
So you leave no trace behind
         Gb
Like you don’t even exist
B                           Abm
Take the words for what they are
                       E
a dwindling, mercurial high
                 Ebm
a drug that only worked
    Gb
The first few hundred times
 
Chorus:
Ebm                        E
And that's the thing about illicit affairs
    Gb                        B
And clandestine meetings and  stolen stares
     Ebm                E
They show their truth one single time
       Gb
But they lie and they lie and they lie
  B
a million little times
 
Verse 3:
                    B
And you wanna scream
B
Don't call me "kid," don't call me "baby"
Abm
Look at this godforsaken mess that you made me
E                       Ebm                   Gb
You showed me colors you know I can't see with anyone else
B
Don't call me "kid," don't call me "baby"
Abm
Look at this idiotic fool that you made me
E                     Ebm                         Gb
You taught me a secret language I can't speak with anyone else
        Abm  B   E
And you know damn well
                 Gb
For you, I would ruin myself
B
a million little times
95

Strumming pattern: D Du Udu
I actually recommend changing the f to fsus2 (taking your finger from the second feet away) it sounds a bit more like the original

Emily

Hello people! Does anybody know the strumming pattern
