Holding Out by Andy Grammer

This song is in 4/4 time.

To make it easier to play, I wrote the chords as though they had four beats each:
A / / / D / / / F#m / / / E / / /

However, the A and F#m really have three beats each while the D and E have five.  
It's really supposed to be:
A / / D / / / / F#m / / E / / / /



[Verse 1:]

A                  D     F#m                     E
   When I met you, love, I hadn't done the dirty yet,
A              D          F#m                 (E)
Call me the unicorn, they said that I didn't exist,
A                     D         F#m               E
Truth is my heart was torn, the v had a couple of rips
    A                   D         F#m                 E
But I was still holding on to the edge with my finger tips

[Pre-chorus:]

                     A                     D
With a little bit of prayer, little bit of porn, sorry,
            F#m                      E
Couple long nights of sleeping on my own
                A                   D
Waiting for the right one to come along
                F#m                 E
Waiting for the right one and now I know

[Chorus:]

           A          D         F#m      E
That I was holding out for you
                A          D         F#m      E
Yeah, I've been holding out for you
        A                            D                  F#m                E
And the neighbors, yeah, they're all haters 'cause they say that we go too loud
          A          D         F#m      E
I've been holding out for you

[Verse 2:]

A               D      F#m                    E
   And a couple times     thought I might not make it (make it)
A                D     F#m                (E)
   Laying on the bed,     both of us half naked (naked)
A                 D    F#m                        E
   Looking in her eyes something in my heart said save it (save it!)
A              D             F#m            E
   Here we go again, another awkward conversation

[Pre-chorus:]

                     A                     D
With a little bit of prayer, little bit of porn, sorry,
            F#m                      E
Couple long nights of sleeping on my own
                A                   D
Waiting for the right one to come along
                F#m                 E
Waiting for the right one and now I know

[Chorus:]

           A          D         F#m      E
That I was holding out for you
                A          D         F#m      E
Yeah, I've been holding out for you
        A                            D                  F#m                E
And the neighbors, yeah, they're all haters 'cause they say that we go too loud
          A          D         F#m      E
I've been holding out for you

[Bridge:]

A       D         F#m           E
Cupid's secret is love starts before you meet it [4x]

[Pre-chorus:]

                     A                     D
With a little bit of prayer, little bit of porn, sorry,
            F#m                      E
Couple long nights of sleeping on my own
                A                   D
Waiting for the right one to come along
                F#m                 E
Waiting for the right one and now I know

[Chorus:]

           A          D         F#m      E
That I was holding out for you
                A          D         F#m      E
Yeah, I've been holding out for you
        A                            D                  F#m                E
And the neighbors, yeah, they're all haters 'cause they say that we go too loud
          A          D         F#m      E
I've been holding out for you


A          D        F#m      E
Holding out for you
            A          D        F#m      E
Yeah, I was holding out for you
        A                            D                  F#m                E
And the neighbors, yeah, they're all haters 'cause they say that we go too loud
                A          D        F#m      E
Yeah, I've been holding out for you
