Verse 1

AmClose the door and take the stairs. CUp or down? Upside Emdown, Well don't preEmtend you've never been there. AmYou kiss me like an overdramatic Cactor who's starving for Emwork, with one last Emshot to make it happen. AmYou've won the role, you've played your part, you've been Ccordially invited. But I'm Emnot impressed, and I'm Emdefinitely not excited, because the Amfilm runs a shallow budget, and the Cwriter's subject script isn't any Emdeeper. So Emdive right in...

Pre-chorus

AmHollywood hills and suburban thrills, Chey you, who are you kidding? GI'm not like them. D/FI won't buy in. AmHollywood hills and suburban thrills, hey Cyou, who are you kidding? Don't Gquit 'til 47, D/Fthen we'll turn it up, and we'll play a little faster.

Chorus

AmTake back everything you ever Csaid, you never meant a Gword of it. You D/Fnever did. AmTake back everything you ever Csaid, you never meant a Gword of it. DYou never did. She said

Verse 2

Am'Alright, Alright, slow down!" C"Oh no, oh no, we won't" Em'cause I regret every word that I said Cto ever make her feel like Amshe was something special, Emor that she ever really mattered. Did she Emever really matter?

Pre-chorus

AmHollywood hills and suburban thrills, Chey you, who are you kidding? GI'm not like them. D/FI won't buy in. AmHollywood hills and suburban thrills, just Cdon't count on this summer. Don't Gquit 'til 47. DThen we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster.

Chorus

AmTake back everything you ever Csaid, you never meant a Gword of it. D/FYou never did. AmTake back everything you ever Csaid, you never meant a Gword of it. DYou never did.

Bridge

CI'm not saying that EmI'm not breaking some Ghearts tonight, girl. CI'm not saying that EmI'm not breaking some Ghearts tonight, girl. FAlright, alright, slow Cdown...
