[Intro]
C C G G
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
Em Em D D
All of my change I spent on you
C C G G
Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong
Em Em D D
Where are the plans we made for two?

[Main]
C C
Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember,
G G
The people we used to be...
Em Em
It's even harder to picture,
D D
That you're not here next to me.

C C
You say it's too late to make it,
G G
But is it too late to try?
Em Em
And in our time that you wasted
D D
All of our bridges burned down

[Bridge]
C C G G
I've wasted my nights,
Em Em
You turned out the lights
D D
Now I'm pa-ra-lyzed,
C C
Still stuck in that time,
G G
When we called it love,
Em Em D D-
But even the sun sets in pa-ra-dise

[Main]
C C G G
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
Em Em D D
All of my change I spent on you
C C G G
Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong
Em Em D D
Where are the plans we made for two?


CG
If "Happy Ever After" did exist,
Em Em D D
I would still be holding you like this
C C G G
All those fairy tales are full of shit
Em D--
One more fucking love song, I'll be sick.


C C
Oh, you turned your back on tomorrow
G G
'Cause you forgot yesterday.
Em Em
I gave you my love to borrow,
D D
But you just gave it away.

C C
You can't expect me to be fine,
G G
I don't expect you to care
Em Em
I know I've said it before,
D D
But all of our bridges burned down

[Bridge]
C C G G
I've wasted my nights,
Em Em
You turned out the lights
D D
Now I'm pa-ra-lyzed,
C C
Still stuck in that time,
G G
When we called it love,
Em Em D D-
But even the sun sets in pa-ra-dise

[Main]
C C G G
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
Em Em D D
All of my change I spent on you
C C G G
Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong
Em Em D D
Where are the plans we made for two?


CG
If "Happy Ever After" did exist,
Em Em D D
I would still be holding you like this
C C G G
All those fairy tales are full of shit
Em D--
One more fucking love song, I'll be sick.

It is a perfect entry for those who are just starting! Not too elaborate chords but they are on key! also strum pattern is pretty much on the dot! kudos to the creator!
