C C F F  X2


[Verse 1]
C C
Let me tell you a story
F F
About a boy and a girl
C C
It's kinda short kinda boring
F F
But the end is a whirl
Am Am
They were just 16
O.C
When the people were mean
F F
So they didn't love themselves
C C
Now they're gone
F F
Headstones on a lawn


[Verse 2]
C C
When I was younger
F F
I knew a boy and a boy
C C
Best friends with each other
F F
But always wished they were more
Am Am
Cause they loved one another
O.C F F
But never discovered cause they were too afraid
C C
Of what they'd say
F F
Moved to different states


[Chorus]
Em Em F F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
C C G G
It ain't funny, it ain't pretty, it ain't sweet
Em Em F F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
C C G G
But I think that it could work for you and me
N.C C C F F
Just wait and see
C C F F
It's not the end of the story


[Verse 3]
C C
Now it's on to the sequel
F F
About me and my friend
C C
See, both our parents were evil
F F
So we both made a bet
Am Am
If we worked and we saved
O.C
We could both run away
F F
And we'd have a better life
C C
And I was right
F F
I wonder if she's alright


[Chorus]
Em Em F F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
C C G G
It ain't funny, it ain't pretty, it ain't sweet
Em Em F F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
C C G G
But I think that it could work for you and me
N.C C C F F
Just wait and see
C C F F
It's not the end of the story


[Bridge]
C C
And the movies always running in my head
F F C C
All the people, all the lovers, all my friends
F F C C
And I hope that they all get their happy end
F F
In the end


[Chorus]
Em Em F F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
C C G G
It ain't funny, it ain't pretty, it ain't sweet
Em Em F F
Oh, and I'm afraid that's just the way the world works
C C G G
But I think that it could work for you and me
N.C C C F F
Just wait and see
C C F F C C
It's not the end of the story
