[Intro]
G5  F#5
Freeze!

[Verse 1]
             Em
It's time to take you home
   B                    C                B                 Em
It feels so early but I promised I would bring you to your door
                 Em                      B
Now our lips are numb as we walk sharing warm alcohol
     C           B       Em
That kiss tastes like summer
                Am                B
Do you like the stars I stole for you?
                    C                 Em
One hundred million twinkle lights in neon blue
Am
I'll be the brightest someday
B
I'll be the brightest someday
C                            G5 F#5
I'll be the brightest you'll see

[Chorus]
      Em            Am
Don't rain on my parade
                       C
It's gonna glow in the dark
                          B
I like it better when you can't keep warm
             Em               Am
It's time to ruin a perfect thing
            C
A perfect thing
               B
The boy on the blue moon dreams of sun
Em B C B G5 F#5 G5 F#5 Em
(wildly screeching solo)

[Verse 2]
           Em              B
Now as the rain falls like shattered pieces of glass from the sky
C                              B
We bleed like water colors and drunken pastels down the stairways
Em                       B
And I ask myself, why do I still pray
             C
When will it end
                B
And who fucking cares
           Em               B
I swear to God I did what I could
              C
I practically begged you
            B              Em
I pretended everything was fine
            B                 C
A soul sacrifice, an American nightmare
              G5 F#5
I'd rather be dead

[Chorus]
      Em            Am
Don't rain on my parade
                       C
It's gonna glow in the dark
                          B
I like it better when you can't keep warm
             Em               Am
It's time to ruin a perfect thing
            C
A perfect thing
               B                 G5        F#5    Em
The boy on the blue moon hears a nightmare in his head
(rapidly decaying nonsense)

[Verse 3]
Em
I'll bet you money as you're running to the bathroom
    B
You barely started drinking but your beauty never stopped you
    C
You died in California by the sulfur and the sea
          B
I guess I never should have loved you
         G5                F#5
But I do forever cause you loved me
Em                          Am
And I break my glasses as I fall in the street
                  B                             C          B
If you were gonna leave this world how could it be without me
         Am                              B
Now it's all over my tongue and still it has no taste
      C       G5  F#5   Em
Cause without you there is no me

[Bridge]
Em Am
C          B     Em
There's no me at all

[Bridge pt.2]
          C
Sometimes love
           B
(Sometimes love)
C    B
Love dies like
C     B
(Love dies like)
C        B
Dies like a
      C     B
(Dies like a)
     C    B      Em
Love dies like a dog
Am C   B
Aaaah, whoooaaah
                                                     G5 F#5
(Why don't we just let this one take care of itself?)

[Chorus]
      Em            Am
Don't rain on my parade
                       C
It's gonna glow in the dark
                          B
I like it better when you can't keep warm
             Em               Am
It's time to ruin a perfect thing
            C
A perfect thing
               B
The boy on the blue moon dreams...

[Outro]
      Em            Am      C          B
Don't rain on my parade, oh whoah, oh no
    Em               Am
I'm losing a perfect thing
          C
A perfect thing
          G5 F#5 E5
A perfect thing
Am Em C B G5 F#5
