Intro: G  Bm  A  Gbm7

Verse:
                   G
We were staying in Paris
                      Bm
To get away from your parents and I thought, wow
           A
If I could take this in a shot right now
           Gbm7
I don't think that we could work this out


           G
Out on the terrace
                        Bm                              
I don't know if it's fair but I thought, how
        A
Could I let you fall by yourself
             Gbm7
While I'm wasted with someone else

Chorus:
   G               Bm
If we go down then we go down together
        A                  
They'll say you could do anything
        Gbm7
They'll say that I was clever


   G               Bm
If we go down then we go down together
      A
We'll get away with everything
      Gbm
Let's show them we are better


G         Bm
    Let's show them we are better 
A         Gbm7
    Let's show them we are better

Verse:
                   G    
We were staying in Paris
                      Bm
To get away from your parents, you look so proud
         A    
Standing there with a frown and a cigarette
        Gbm7
Posting pictures of yourself on the internet


           G
Out on the terrace
                  Bm
We breathe in the air of this small town
          A
On our own, cuttin’ class for the thrill of it
           Gbm7
Getting drunk on the past we were livin’ in

Chorus:
   G               Bm
If we go down then we go down together
        A                  
They'll say you could do anything
        Gbm7
They'll say that I was clever


   G               Bm
If we go down then we go down together
      A
We'll get away with everything
      Gbm7
Let's show them we are better


Post-Chorus:
      G                                 Bm
Let's show them we are, let's show them we are
                       A
Let's show them we are, let's show them we are
      Gbm7
Let's show them we are better


                   G     Bm  A 
We were staying in Paris
      Gbm7                            
Let's show them we are better


      G                                 Bm
Let's show them we are, let's show them we are
                       A
Let's show them we are, let's show them we are
      Gbm7
Let's show them we are better

Chorus:
   G               Bm
If we go down then we go down together
        A                  
They'll say you could do anything
        Gbm7
They'll say that I was clever


   G               Bm
If we go down then we go down together
      A
We'll get away with everything
      Gbm7
Let's show them we are better

  1. i think instead of “standing there with a frown and a cigarette” its “standing there with your phone and a cigarette”

  2. i think -2 makes the song way easier and also the em7 sounds funkey anybody know a better chord to used insted?

    • Mairynmusic1008

      instead of em7 you can just do em it sounds a little different but is basically the same

  3. If you want it to be easier to play and sound the same as the original chords (0) you can go -2 and put a capo on the 2nd fret

  4. BuUubbles

    What does -2 mean? (I’m a noob I’m sorry)

    • its the transposer it changes the chords and by clicking on each number and trying it out it helps you get a feel for which one suits you the best

  5. This sounds great! For the strumming pattern, I personally like to strum down three times for each chord. -2 is relatively the easiest one to play. Hope that helps!

  6. DooDeDum

    what is negative 2 mean

  7. ooopsnevermind

    If Gbm7 is too difficult I just substitute Gbm

  8. I definitely think -4 sounds and feels best.

  9. Em7 on -2 sounds weird.

  10. When transposed -2 em sounds way better than em7

  11. -2

  12. I don’t Really like the em7 (if you transport it to -2)

  13. Lol I requested this yay!!

  14. If you transpose to -2 its much easier
