(Intro)

C C
I put on a play in my old house
F F
In my cape jumping on the old couch
Dm Dm
Putting up lights when it’s cold out
G G
Mom and Dad both seats sold out
C C
Show you my play

(2nd part before bridge)

C C
Haven’t seen the old house lately
F F
Wonder if they found my spaceship
Dm Dm
I don’t want my own love wasted
G G
Tell me this is what you’re saying

(Bridge)
C C
If you both outgrew one another,
F F Dm Dm
I could start now looking for a lover,
A A Dm Dm
But if love dies do I even bother?

(Chorus)

G G C C
I just really really really really wanna show you my play
F F A A Dm Dm
And I don’t want to do it for Dad, at Dad’s new place
G G F F
I worked really really really really hard let me show you my play
Dm Dm G G C C
And I don’t want to do it twice, cause it’s not the same.

(2nd part)

C C
I’ve been on dates bringing flowers
F F
Tryna be great for an hour
Dm Dm
You and me might grow sour
G G
But if we don’t hold out then we’re cowards

C C
I put on a play in my basement
F F
Mom and Dad’s smilin’ faces
Dm Dm
But now I don’t know if they faked it
G G
Guess everything is complicated

(Bridge)

C C
If you both outgrew one another,
F F Dm Dm
I could start now looking for a lover,
A A Dm Dm
But if love dies do I even bother?

(Chorus)

G G C C
I just really really really really wanna show you my play
F F A A Dm Dm
And I don’t want to do it for Dad, at Dad’s new place
G G F F
I worked really really really really hard let me show you my play
Dm Dm G G C C
And I don’t want to do it twice, cause it’s not the same.


(Verses towards the ending)

C C
You did everything, everything, everything, that you could
F F A A Dm Dm
We do everything, everything, everything, ‘til it’s through
G G C C
I’ll do everything, everything, everything, when I’m with you


(Ending verses)

C C
But when I show you my play
F F A A
Will you pretend that you didn’t know if I made a mistake
F F A A Dm Dm
It’s gonna get really really really really bad before it’s okay
F F G G C C
But maybe you’ll forget it all while you’re watching my play :)

Strumming patterns:
Intro:
DDDD

Second part of intro: (after the verse: “show you my play”)
DDUDDUUDUD

Bridge:

(constant down strokes) DDDD

the verse that goes into the chorus: “I just really really really really wanna show you my play”
Strum Down more aggressively (but don’t break your strings lol)
Then on the word “play” go back to the strumming pattern DDUDDUUDUD

Chorus:

Play DDUDDUUDUD for the whole chorus until the verse “and I don’t want to do it twice cause it’s not the same” which on that verse use single down strokes on each of the chords

2nd part:

Go back to using DDDD

Towards ending verses: DDUDDUUDUD

Last verses of the song: DDUDDUUDUD

very last verse: use single strokes for the ending

thank you for using my tabs I created and I hope you have a blessed day :)
