Intro:
AmAm chord
Ohh...

Verse:
      FF chord                     AmAm chord
Got a boy back home in Michigan
       GG chord 
And it tastes like Jack when I'm kissing him
     FF chord                                      AmAm chord
So I told him that I never really liked his friends
         GG chord                          CC chord
Now he's gone and he's calling me a bitch again
       FF chord                           AmAm chord
It's a guy that lives in a garden state
       GG chord 
And he told me that we'd make it 'til we graduate
     FF chord                                      AmAm chord
So I told him the music would be worth the wait
       GG chord                              CC chord
But he wants me in the kitchen with a dinner plate

Pre-Chorus:
    FF chord                                 AmAm chord
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe

That we're meant to be
          FF chord                             AmAm chord
But jealousy, jealousy, jealousy, jealousy
         GG chord          CC chord
Gets the best of me
      FF chord                          AmAm chord
Look, I don't mean to frustrate, but I
GG chord
Always make the same mistakes, yeah
FF chord                              AmAm chord   GG chord  CC chord
Always make the same mistakes 'cause

Chorus:
           FF chord     AmAm chord  GG chord
I'm bad at love -ooh-ooh-
                           FF chord 
But you can't blame me for tryin'
         AmAm chord     GG chord
You know I'd be lyin' sayin'
CC chord            FF chord    AmAm chord  GG chord
You were the one -ooh-ooh-
                   FF chord 
That could finally fix me
        AmAm chord    GG chord
Lookin' at my history
    CC chord      FF chord 
I'm bad at love

Verse:
      FF chord
Got a girl with California eyes
AmAm chord     GG chord
 And I thought that she could really be the one this time
      FF chord                                  AmAm chord
But I never got the chance to make her mine
            GG chord                        CC chord
Because she fell in love with little thin white lines
FF chord                         AmAm chord
London girl with an attitude
         GG chord
We never told no one but we look so cute
FF chord                              AmAm chord
Both got way better things to do
      GG chord                              CC chord
But I always think about it when I'm riding through

  1. Great job!

  2. i love halsey so much

  3. what would be a good strumming pattern for this song

  4. I really liked how it sounded with a capo either on the 1st or 2nd fret

  5. phanic! at the hometown

    just saying…i’d strum it either dduudu or ddu (i think it sounds better the second way but it’s all preference)

  6. It’s okay, but a lot of these chords don’t fit in with the song.

  7. I can’t find the strumming patterns are they written anywhere?

  8. How do you find the strumming pattern?

  9. The lyrics in the second verse are “I always think about her when i’m bad and blue” not “riding through”

  10. JustSomeoneWithADream

    No, it’s “riding through”

  11. The first time I heard this song on the radio I loved it, but I though it was ‘Ready to Love’, not ‘Bad at Love’ and I couldn’t find the song anywhere. So glad I found it!!

    I sing and play this song at the same time and was wondering if there is a good sub for the swear word in the first verse where she says “Now he’s gone and calling me a _____ again”

  13. it actually is “i always think about her when im riding through”
