Intro: C, Am7, F    


C        Am7               F    
Elevator buttons and morning air
C                  Am7                     F            
Strangers' silence makes me wanna take the stairs
C                    Am7                F           
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares
          C    G         F    
But right now, my time is theirs


   C               Am7                    F    
Seems like there's always someone who disapproves
        C                  Am7               F     
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
        C                  Am7                F    
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
           C    G               F    
The jury's out, but my choice is you


F                       G
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
C                     Am7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    F          G         Am7
And life makes love work hard
               F    
The stakes are high
            G
The waters rough
                 C, Am7, F, C, Am7, F          
But this love is ours


    C               Am7                  F    
You never know what people have up their sleeves
C                     Am7               F    
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
C              Am7                F    
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
             C    G                     F    
But I don't care, cause right now you're mine


               F                    G
And you'll say don't you worry your pretty little mind
C                     Am7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    F          G         Am7
And life makes love work hard
               F    
The stakes are high
            G
The waters rough
                 C, Am7, F, C, Am7, F          
But this love is ours


Am7          G             F    
And it's not theirs to speculate
        Am7  G   Am7            G                 F            Am7  G  
If it's wrong and your hands are tough but they are where mine belong and
Am7              G                 F               Am7  G   F    
I'll fight their doubt and give you faith with this song for you


C                Am7              F    
Cause I love the gap between your teeth
C              Am7              F    
And I love the riddles that you speak
        C                     Am7          F                       C
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
G                F    
Cause my heart is yours


F                       G
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
C                     Am7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    F          G         Am7
And life makes love work hard


F                       G
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
C                     Am7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    F           G          C   Am7
But they can't take what's ours
F          G           Am7
They can't take what's ours
               F    
The stakes are high
           G
The waters rough
                 C
But this love is ours

  1. I personally think Am sounds better than Am7, but you could use both interchangeably if you wanted.

  2. imimmusic

    I don’t think it matters if you use Am or Am7.

    • VanillaGalaxies

      I use both and go back and forth and I think it sounds fine. if you play around with it and fine out what you like it doesn’t really matter.

  3. Indigo Swift
