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

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
