[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
G G
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
G G F F
But never discovered ‘cause they were too afraid
C C
Of what they’d say
F F
Moved to different states

[Chorus]
Em7 Em7 F F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
C C G6 G6
It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
Em7 Em7 F F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
C C G6 G6
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 till we saved
G G
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]
Em7 Em7 F F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
C C G6 G6
It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet

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


[Bridge]
F F C C
And the movie’s 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’ll all get their happy end
F F
In the end

[Chorus]
Em7 Em7 F F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
C C G6 G6
It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
Em7 Em7 F F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
C C G6 G6
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

Em7 and G6 are the exact same thing but you put them next to each other like they're different.
