Verse:
           AmAm chord           GG chord  
come home early after class
            CC chord                           FF chord
don't be hanging round the back of the schoolyard
             AmAm chord              GG chord  
i've been called up by a teacher
          CC chord                                     FF chord
she says she can't even reach you cause you're so far
              AmAm chord               GG chord  
you've been talking with your fist
            CC chord                          FF chord
we didn't raise you up like this, now did we
                   AmAm chord             GG chord  
there have been changes in this house
             CC chord                             FF chord
things that you don't know about in this family

Pre-Chorus:
               DmDm chord              FF chord
it don't make sense, but nevertheless
             CC chord                         GG chord
you gotta believe us, it's all for the best
               DmDm chord
it don't make sense
               FF chord
the way things go
                GG chord  
son you should know

Chorus:
           AmAm chord       GG chord     CC chord
sometimes moms and dads fall out of love
           AmAm chord    GG chord        CC chord
sometimes two homes are better than one
                 AmAm chord               GG chord                   CC chord
some things you can't tell your sister 'cause she's still too young
               DmDm chord          FF chord
yeah you'll understand

when you love someone.

Your room will stay the same
               CC chord                   FF chord

  1. to have it in the original key, transpose -5

  2. Itsyaboi

    It would be great if this website provided strumming patterns for the songs. :/

  3. PussyCat

    OMG I LOVE THIS SONG

  4. coolkid14952

    these chords are wrong WRONG UR DONZO

  5. +2 for the real version

  6. +3 ***

  7. Forget that I can’t figure it out ughhh

  8. where is the strumming pattern?

  9. I figured out the strumming pattern. Tricky at first but if you play along to the original song you pick it up quick:
    D-D-U-U-D-D-U-U-D-U-D-D-U-U-D-U-U-D-U-U-D-U
    It’s just a weird and fast transition between D and G but just remember to play up for the d chord twice. Hope this helps. It helped me.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
