How To Play

INTRO
C
 
VERSE 1
F         C           Am                       G
Fatefully, I tried to pick my battles 'til the battle picked me
F       C         Am             G
 Misery, like the war of words I shouted in my sleep
F        C
 And you passed right by
Am                     G
I was in the alley, surrounded on all sides
F          C
 The knife cuts both ways
       Am                     G
If the shoe fits, walk in it 'til your high heels break
 
CHORUS
F                    C
 And I fell from the pedestal
               Am
Right down the rabbit hole
           G
Long story short, it was a bad time
F                C
 Pushed from the precipices
             Am
Clung to the nearest lips
           G
Long story short, it was the wrong guy
F        C
 Now I'm all about you
Am   G
 I'm all about you, ah
C      F           G
 Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    C
I'm all about you, ah
      F           Em  C
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
 
VERSE 2
F        C         Am               G
Actually, I always felt I must look better in the rear view
F           C       Am                G
 Missing me, at the golden gates they once held the keys to
F       C
 When I dropped my sword
  Am                         G
I threw it in the bushes and knocked on your door
F       C
 And we live in peace
       Am                   G/B
But if someone comes at us, this time, I'm ready
 
CHORUS
F                       C
 'Cause I fell from the pedestal
               Am
Right down the rabbit hole
           G
Long story short, it was a bad time
F                C
 Pushed from the precipices
             Am
Clung to the nearest lips
           G
Long story short, it was the wrong guy
F        C
 Now I'm all about you
Am   G
 I'm all about you, ah
C      F           G
 Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    C
I'm all about you
 
BRIDGE
Am  Em           Dm
 No more keepin' score
           Am
Now I just keep you warm (Keep you warm)
   Em          Dm
No more tug of war
           G                  Am
Now I just know there's more (Know there's more)
   Em           Dm
No more keepin' score
           Am
Now I just keep you warm (Keep you warm)
Am      Em              F
 And my waves meet your shore
         G
Ever and evermore
 
VERSE 3
F        C        Am                  G
 Past me, I wanna tell you not to get lost in these petty things
F            C        Am                G
 Your nemeses, will defeat themselves before you get the chance to swing
F         C
 And he's passing by
Am                       G
Rare as the glimmer of a comet in the sky
F       C
 And he feels like home
       Am                    G
If the shoe fits, walk in it everywhere you go
 
CHORUS
C                    F
 And I fell from the pedestal
               G
Right down the rabbit hole
           C
Long story short, it was a bad time
                F
Pushed from the precipices
                   Em
Climbed right back up the cliff
           C
Long story short, I survived
        F              G
Now I'm all about you, ah
    C
I'm all about you, ah
    F             Em
I'm all about you, ah
    C
I'm all about you, ah
      F           Em
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    C
I'm all about you
      F           G
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    C
I'm all about you
 
OUTRO
F C
Am          G                  F    C
 Long story short, it was a bad time
Am          G           N.C.
 Long story short, I survived
