F  Am  G


[Verse]
     
                    F                 Am
Lovin' him is like, drivin' a new Maserati
                G
Down a dead end street
F                           Am
Faster than the wind, passionate as sin
         G
Ended so suddenly
                    F
Loving him is like, tryin' to change your mind 
            Am                         G
Once you're already flying through the free fall
         F                  Am
Like the colors in autumn so bright
                 G          N.C.
Just before they lose it all


[Chorus]

               F                    C
Losing him was blue, like I'd never known
                G
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                   F                       Am
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody
          G
You never met
                   F
But loving him was red
          Am        G
Re ee ed, re ee ed, re ee ed
               F
Lovin' him was red
          Am        G
Re ee ed, re ee ed, re ee ed


[Verse]

                       F                      Am
Touching him was like, realizing all you ever wanted 
                   G
Was right there in front of you
                       F                       Am
Memorizing him was as, easy as knowin' all the words
                    G
To your old favorite song
                           F 
Fighting with him was like tryin' to solve a 
              Am                           G
Crossword and realizing there's no right answer
                        F                        Am
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out 
                       G
That love could be that strong 


[Chorus]

               F                    C
Losing him was blue, like I'd never known
                G
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                   F                       Am
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody
          G
You never met
                   F
But loving him was red
          Am           G
Re ee ed, re ee ed, oh red, re ee ed
        F              Am
Burnin' red, re ee ed, re ee ed
G
Re ee ed, 


[Bridge]

                         F               C
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echos
                    Am             G
Tellin' myself it's time now gotta let go 
                   F
But moving on from him is impossible 
     C                       G     
When I still see it all in my, head 
            F   Am  G
And burning red
       F      Am  G
Burning was reeeeed
  

[Chorus]

                  F F F N.C.             C C C N.C.
Oh losing him was blue, like I'd never known
                G G G N.C.           G G G 
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                   F                       Am
Forgetting him was like tryin' to know somebody
          G
You never met
                     F
Cause loving him was red
Am          G
Yeah, yeah, red
           F   Am  G
Oh Burning reeeeeeeed


[Outro]

           F                  Am              G
And that's Why he's spinnin' 'round in my head
                              F   
Comes back to me, burnin' red 
  Am      G
Yeah, yeah

                   F                 Am 
His love was like, drivin' a new Maserati
               G 
Down a dead end street.

It sounds spot on to me!! As soon as I heard her single I thought "omg maybe cristy♥twilight has put a tab up on Ultimate guitars!" :D (Btw this is costadancer - I made a new account, dunno if you remember me LOL)

Although the lyrics in the first verse aren't quite right I don't think! This "Like the colors and arms so bright, Just before they lose it all" should be... "Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all"

@melissarose- Yes I remember costadancer! Ha ha, it wouldn't be right if I didn't screw up the lyrics!! I hurry so fast to get it on here and getting the chords right that lyrics come last:( I am updating! I can pick out chords and keys but not words obviously!!
