Waving Through a Window, Ben Platt
From Dear Evan Hansen

So a student of mine wanted to perform this at an upcoming recital and I could find a version that worked well
for a simple performance.  I spent time trying to get some playable chords and line them up with the lyrics.

Make sure to CAPO 2 to match with the recording.  For performance you could just play the final chorus without
the key change to avoid bar chords etc...

[Intro]

G/B   Cadd9   D5     D5
G/B   Cadd9   D5     D5


[Verse 1]

G/B                Cadd9        D5     D5
    I’ve learned to slam on the brake
G/B          Cadd9   D5     D5
    Before I even   turn the key
G/B           Cadd9        D5     D5
    Before I   make the mistake
G/B           Cadd9         Em      D5
    Before I lead with the worst of me


G/B           Cadd9         D5     D5
    Give them no reason to stare
G/B            Cadd9   D5       D5
    No slipping out if you slip away
G/B           Cadd9      D5     D5
    So I got nothing to share
G/B             Cadd9      Em   D5
    No I’ve got nothing to say


[Pre-Chorus]

Am7                 Em        D
    Step out, step out of the sun
       G/B          C
If you keep getting burned
Am7                 Em        D
    Step out, step out of the sun
   G/B          C
Because you’ve learned
  D
Because you’ve learned


[Chorus]

Em
On the outside
C
Always looking in
       G            D
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
          Em                       C
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    G                D
I’m waving through a window
Em                 C
I try to speak but nobody can hear
G                      D
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       Em                            C
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    G                D           B7/D#
I’m waving through a window   Oh Oh Oh Oh
Em       C       G
Oh   Can anybody see?
            D
Is anybody waving…


G/B     Cadd9   D5     D5
back at me?

C       G       D     D



[Verse 2]

G/B              Cadd9        D5     D5
   We start with stars in our eyes
G/B             Cadd9      D5     D5
   We start believing that we belong
G/B           Cadd9        D5     D5
    But every sun doesn’t rise
G/B           Cadd9            Em      D5
   And nobody tells you where you went wrong


[Pre-Chorus]

Am7                 Em        D
    Step out, step out of the sun
       G/B          C
If you keep getting burned
Am7                 Em        D
    Step out, step out of the sun
   G/B          C
Because you’ve learned
  D
Because you’ve learned


[Chorus]

Em
On the outside
C
Always looking in
       G            D
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
          Em                       C
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    G                D
I’m waving through a window
Em                 C
I try to speak but nobody can hear
G                      D
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       Em                            C
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    G                D           B7/D#
I’m waving through a window   Oh Oh Oh Oh

Em       C       G
Oh   Can anybody see?
            D
Is anybody waving…


[Interlude]

            G/B         Cadd9                 D     Em
When you’ve fallen in a forest, and there’s nobody around
        G/B       Cadd9       D         Em
do you ever really crash or even make a sound?
(x4)


[Bridge]

       G/B         Cadd9
Did I even make a sound?
      D     Em
Did I even make a sound?
           G/B         Cadd9
It’s like I never made a sound
       D     Em
Will I ever make a sound?


[Chorus]

Fm
On the outside
Db
Always looking in
       Ab           Eb
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
          Fm                       Db
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    Ab               Eb
I’m waving through a window
Fm                 Db
I try to speak but nobody can hear
Ab                      Eb
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       Fm                            Db
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    Ab                Eb           C7/E
I’m waving through a window   Oh Oh Oh Oh
 Fm       Db       Ab
Oh   Can anybody see?
            Eb
Is anybody waving


Ab/C    Db   Eb     Eb
back at me?
Ab/C    Db   Eb     Eb
Is anybody waving
Fm      Eb
waving waving?
Db   Ab
Whoa whoa
