[Intro]
Bb Bb Gm Gm Eb Eb D D F F

[Verse 1]
Bb Bb
Make sure nobody sees you leave
Gm Gm Eb Eb
Hood over your head, keep your eyes down
D D
Tell your friends you're out for a run
F F
You’ll be flushed when you return
Bb Bb
Take the road less traveled by
Gm Gm Eb Eb
Tell yourself you can always stop
D D
What started in beautiful rooms
F F
Ends with meetings in parking lots


[Chorus]
D D Eb Eb
And that's the thing about illicit affairs
F F
And clandestine meetings and longing stares
Bb Bb Eb Eb
It's born from just one single glance
F F
But it dies and it dies and it dies
Bb Bb
A A million little times


[Verse 2]
Bb Bb
Leave the perfume on the shelf
Gm Gm Eb Eb
That you picked out just for him
D D
So you leave no trace behind
F F
Like you don’t even exist
Bb Bb
Take the words for what they are
Gm Gm Eb Eb
A A dwindling, mercurial high
D D
A A drug that only worked
F F
The first few hundred times


[Chorus]
Bb Bb Eb Eb
And that's the thing about illicit affairs
F F
And clandestine meetings and stolen stares
Bb Bb Eb Eb
They show their truth one single time
F F
But they lie and they lie and they lie
Bb Bb
A A million little times


[Verse 3]

And you wanna scream
Bb Bb
Don't call me "kid," don't call me "baby"
Gm Gm
Look at this godforsaken mess that you made me
Eb Eb F F
You showed me colors you know I can't see with anyone else
Bb Bb
Don't call me "kid," don't call me "baby"
Gm Gm
Look at this idiotic fool that you made me
Eb Eb F F
You taught me a secret language I can't speak with anyone else
Gm Gm Eb Eb Bb Bb
And you know damn well
F F Bb Bb
For you, I would ruin myself
Bb Bb
A A million little times

I'd use Dm instead of D
