How To Play

INTRO
F C (4x)
 
 
VERSE 1
F     C
  I'm doing good, I'm on some new shit
F      C
  Been saying "yes" instead of "no"
F   C                                     F            C
  I thought I saw  you at the bus stop, I didn't though
F   C
  I hit the ground running each night
F   C
  I hit the Sunday matinée
Dm     C                                        Dm        C
  You know the greatest films of all time were never made
 
 
PRE CHORUS
F   C
  I guess you never know, never know
F     C                                       F
  And if you wanted me, you really should've showed
    C                                       F
And if you never bleed, you're never gonna grow
          C
And it's alright now
 
 
CHORUS
Am    C
  But we were something, don't you think so?
F   C                                       Dm
   Roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool
    C
And if my wishes came true
Dm  C
       It would've been you
Am  C
       In my defense, I have none
F   C                                 Dm
       For never leaving well enough alone
C
But it would've been fun
Dm  C
    If you would've been the one
Dm  C
      (Ooh)
Dm  C
 
 
VERSE 2
F     C
      I had this dream you're doing cool shit
F     C
   Having adventures on your own
F     C                                     F      C
  You meet some woman on the internet and take her home
Dm   C                             Dm
  We never painted by the numbers, baby
    C
But we were making it count
Dm    C                                        F        C
  You know the greatest loves of all time are over now
 
 
PRE CHORUS
F   C
  I guess you never know, never know
F     C
  And it's another day waking up alone
 
 
CHORUS
Am    C
  But we were something, don't you think so?
F   C                                       Dm
   Roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool
    C
And if my wishes came true
Dm  C
       It would've been you
Am  C
       In my defense, I have none
F   C                                  Dm
       For never leaving well enough alone
C
But it would've been fun
Dm  C
    If you would've been the one
 
 
BRIDGE
Am   C        F              C
   I, I, I persist and resist the temptation to ask you
   Dm                 C
If one thing had been  different
      Dm           C
Would everything be  different today?
 
 
CHORUS
Am         C
   We were something, don't you think so?
F   C                                Dm
   Rosé flowing with your chosen family
C
And it would've been sweet
Dm  C
    If it could've been me
Am  C
       In my defense, I have none
F   C                                   Dm
       For digging up the grave another time
C
But it would've been fun
Dm  C
    If you would've been the one
Dm  C
      (Ooh)
Dm  C
