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