Intro:
    Ebm  Abm 
    Db   Gb
    B    Abm  Bb


Ebm         Abm 
My heart is paralyzed
Db          Gb
My head was oversized
B              Abm            Bb
I'll take the high road like I should
Ebm         Abm 
You said it's meant to be
Db            Gb
That it's not you, it's me
B              Abm           Bb
You're leaving now for my own good

That's cool but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say


B
She went down in an airplane
Gb
Fried getting suntan
Db               Ebm           Db
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
B               Gb            F        Bb   
Help me, help me I'm no good at goodbyes
B
She met a shark underwater
Gb
Fell and no one caught her
Db                    Ebm           Db
I returned everything I ever bought her
B               Gb            Bb
Help me, help me I'm all out of lies
                     Ebm
And ways to say you died

Interlude:
    Ebm  Abm 
    Db   Gb
    B    Abm  Bb


Ebm            Abm   
My pride still feels the sting
Db          Gb
You were my everything
B           Abm              Bb
Someday I'll find a love like yours
Ebm            Abm
She'll think I'm Superman
Db          Gb
Not super minivan
B           Abm           Bb
How could you leave on Yom Kippur

That's cool but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say


B
She was caught in a mudslide
Gb
Eaten by a lion
Db                Ebm           Db
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
B               Gb            F        Bb
Help me, help me I'm no good at goodbyes
B
She dried up in the desert
Gb
drowned in a hot tub
Db                    Ebm       Db
Danced to death at an east side nightclub
B               Gb            Bb
Help me, help me I'm all out of lies
                    Ebm
And ways to say you died

Interlude:
    Ebm  Abm 
    Db   Gb
    B    Abm  Bb B

Db
I wanna live a thousand lives with you
B
I wanna be the one your dying to
Db                   B         
Love...but you don't want to


Bb
That's cool but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say

  1. its ya boy uh depression

    Can we talk about how Emma got roasted? Cause damn she was w r o n g. Also on a helpful note, leaving out the second Db in Db Ebm Db, makes it easier to play. (and my fingers are really sore after trying to do all three…) So just a little tip for people with weak fingers and slow movements.

  2. I found it helps on the outer for g to be the last chord.;-)

  3. I think -1 sounds best. I spent quite some time going from the song to my voice to the ukulele. Hope this works for others too.

  4. These lyrics are correct. Sometimes it says says goodbye, but sometimes it says you died. :)

  5. “And ways to say goodbye”. Not “you died”

  6. Jeez, it’s not “and ways to say you died”. It’s “to say goodbye”. You know, like the songs title

    • Actually it is “and ways to say you died” i’ve listened to this song since i was 6 so ye. u might want to look at the lyrics, listen to the song again or both.
      Your welcome,
      Nyaa

  7. It sounds better when it is transposed up half a step (+1) at least to me :)

  8. it sounds strange, not terribly bad but strange…
