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