GG chord                                                            BmBm chord
Oh, our futures were written with crayons in coloring books             
CC chord                                                                GG chord
It was misspelled and outside the lines and we loved how it looked
GG chord                                                    BmBm chord
Like the crooked hem of your favorite childhood dress
        CC chord                                       GG chord
And the holes in my jeans from years of carelessness
     CC chord                                               EmEm chord
I know since we've grown, we ache for those memories  
    CC chord                                           GG chord       BmBm chord            GG chord
Honestly, nothing's even compared to you next to me, next to me


GG chord                                                                      BmBm chord
When the words came to you for the first time, you knew you were hooked
        CC chord                                                   GG chord   
And the pride that you felt at the last page of your first book
GG chord                                                        BmBm chord
And the bravery I forced when I sang to an audience of three
         CC chord                                                        GG chord
Well, it took a million wrong notes just to find a single melody and key
       CC chord                               EmEm chord
I know since we've grown we plea for clarity
        CC chord                                          GG chord              BmBm chord
Honestly, nothing's ever made sense til you were next to me, next to me


CC chord     AmAm chord        GG chord                 BmBm chord
If time is money, then I'll spend it all for you
CC chord       AmAm chord              GG chord           BmBm chord
I will buy you flowers with the minutes we outgrew
CC chord         AmAm chord              GG chord                 BmBm chord
I'll turn hours into gardens, planted just for us to take
CC chord         AmAm chord                 GG chord
I'll be reckless with my days, building castles in your name


CC chord                              EmEm chord
Since we've grown, we long for concrete things
CC chord                                                        GG chord               BmBm chord
Honestly, nothing's felt so sure than when you were next to me, next to me

So lets cut down the red tape and gather up the pieces of our youth
                CC chord
Cause there's nothing in this world we can't fix with some scissors and glue
