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