Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first time submitting, and actually i look at other chords and just 
modify bait by changing the chord. i just more comfortable with this one. i love 
acoustic better, but since i just learn about guitar so i won't make it hard on you and me,
and i don't do strumming. i pick it, the way you play on IU - Dreaming. 
and it would be much easier to sing if you're a girl with soprano kinda voice. 

if you want to say something you could email me claudia.audie30@gmail.com
please be easy on me if i'm wrong. 


Capo: 3rd
Tuning: standard
Chord: C.. G.. Em.. D
              for C, you could play it Cadd9 (for me it's the same)


[Chorus]

             C                               
I'm at a payphone 
              G
trying to call home
            Em                           
All of my change
             D
I spent on you
                       C                                 
Where have the times gone,
              G
Baby it's all wrong, 
               Em                D
where are the plans we made for two?


[Verse]

           C                                 
Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember
   G
The people we used to be
  Em
It's even harder to picture
  D
That you're not here next to me
  C
You say it's too late to make it
  G
But is it too late to try?
 Em
And in our time that you wasted
  D
All of our bridges burned down

  C
I've wasted my nights
  G
You turned out the lights
  Em
Now I'm paralyzed
  D
Still stuck in that time 
  C
when we called it love
  G          Em                D
But even the sun sets in paradise


[Chorus]

             C                               
I'm at a payphone 
              G
trying to call home
            Em                           
All of my change
             D
I spent on you
                       C                                 
Where have the times gone,
              G
Baby it's all wrong, 
               Em                D
where are the plans we made for two?


[Verse]

         C                  G
If happy ever after did exist
               Em                 D
I would still be holding you like this
           C                        G
All those fairytales are full of sh*t
           Em                       D
One more stupid love song I'll be sick

   C
You turned your back on tomorrow
   G
Cause you forgot yesterday
   Em
I gave you my love to borrow
  D
But just gave it away
  C
You can't expect me to be fine
  G
I don't expect you to care
  Em
I know I've said it before
  G
But all of our bridges burned down

  C
I've wasted my nights
  G
You turned out the lights
  Em
Now I'm paralyzed
  D
Still stuck in that time 
  C
when we called it love
  G          Em                D
But even the sun sets in paradise


[Chorus]

              C                               
I'm at a payphone 
              G
trying to call home
            Em                           
All of my change
             D
I spent on you
                       C                                 
Where have the times gone,
              G
Baby it's all wrong, 
               Em                D
where are the plans we made for two?


[Outro]

         C                  G
If happy ever after did exist
               Em                 D
I would still be holding you like this
           C                        G
All those fairytales are full of sh*t
           Em                       D
One more stupid love song I'll be sick

                 G
Now I'm at a payphone...

I'd say it should be half a note higher, so capo on 4th
