SPEAK NOW – TAYLOR SWIFT – DELUXE EDITION CHORDS
MINE 
Cadd9 G Dsus4 Em7 x3 Cadd9 G Dsus4

Cadd9        G		     Dsus4     Em7
 You were in college working part time waiting tables
Cadd9   G	    Dsus4
 Left a small town, never looked back
Cadd9    G          Dsus4   Em7
 I was a flight risk with a fear of falling
Cadd9            G	     Dsus4
Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts

C G D                    C G
  I say can you believe it?
D                       C  G
 As we're lying on the couch
    D
The moment I could see it
C    G	 D
Yes, yes, I can see it now

C	 		 G
 Do you remember we were sitting there by the water
D	  		  Em	    D
 You put your arm around me for the first time
C		       G
 You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
D		       Em	    D        C
 You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Cadd9  G		 Dsus4         Em7
 Flash forward and we're taking on the world together
Cadd9          G         Dsus4
 And there's a drawer of my things at your place
Cadd9      G		      Dsus4      Em7
 You learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded
Cadd9    G                   Dsus4
 You say we'll never make my parents' mistakes

C G D
     But we got bills to pay
C G D
     We got nothing figured out
C G D
     When it was hard to take
C    G    D
Yes, yes, this is what I thought about

C	 		 G
 Do you remember we were sitting there by the water
D	  		  Em	    D
 You put your arm around me for the first time
C		       G
 You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
D		       Em	    D
 You are the best thing that's ever been mine
C			 G
 Do you remember all the city lights on the water
D                      Em	     D
 You saw me start to believe for the first time
C		       G
 You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
D		       Em	    D
 You are the best thing that's ever been mine

C G D Em C G D

        Em                     C
And I remember that fight, two thirty AM
    D
You said everything was slipping out of our hands
Em                      C                         D
I ran out crying and you followed me out into the street
C G         D
   Braced myself for the goodbye
C G              D
   'Cause that's all I've ever known
C G    D
   And you took me by suprise
C G         D                     C
   You said I'll never leave you alone

You said
C	           G
 I remember how we felt sitting by the water
D                          Em               D
 And every time I look at you it's like the first time
C		       G
 I fell in love with a careless man’s careful daughter
D
 She is the best thing that’s ever been mine

C		G
Hold on, we can make it last
D        Em         D
Hold on, never turn back
C		       G
 You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
D
 You are the best thing that's ever been mine
C     G	 D
(Hold on) Do you believe it?
C     G	 D
(Hold on) We’re gonna make it now
C     G	D               
(Hold on) And I can see it
C     G	  D
Yeah, yeah (I can see it now, see it now, see it now)


SPARKS FLY 
Capo 5 
Am F C G x2

Am                          F
 The way you move is like a full on rainstorm
C                    G
 And I'm a house of cards
           Am                            F
 You're the kind of reckless that should send me running
      C                  G
 But I kinda know that I won't get far

F                        G
 And you stood there in front of me just
C       G        Am
 Close enough to touch
F                                  G
 Close enough to hope you couldn't see what I was thinking of


                Am
Drop everything now
               F
Meet me in the pouring rain
C
Kiss me on the sidewalk
G
Take away the pain
       Am     F              C          G
'Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
                  Am
Get me with those green eyes, baby
       F
As the lights go down
        C                          G
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
       Am     F              C       G  Am F C G
'Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile


Am           F
 My mind forgets to remind me
C              G
 You're a bad idea
Am                         F
 You touch me once and it's really something
     C                            G     
 You find I'm even better than you imagined I would be


F                        G
 I'm on my guard for the rest of the world
           C    G            Am
 But with you I know it's no good
F
 And I could wait patiently but
G
 I really wish you would


                Am
Drop everything now
               F
Meet me in the pouring rain
C
Kiss me on the sidewalk
G
Take away the pain
       Am     F              C          G
'Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
                  Am
Get me with those green eyes, baby
       F
As the lights go down
        C                          G
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
       Am     F              C       G  Am F C G
'Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile


  Am             F
I run my fingers through your hair
    C                   G
And watch the lights go wild
     Am                    F
Just keep on keeping your eyes on me
          C                             G
It's just wrong enough to make it feel right
    Am               F
And lead me up the staircase
          C                 G
Won't you whisper soft and slow
    Am         F                  C             G
I'm captivated by you baby like a fireworks show

 
               Am
Drop everything now
               F
Meet me in the pouring rain
C
Kiss me on the sidewalk
G
Take away the pain
       Am     F              C             G
'Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
                  Am
Get me with those green eyes, baby
       F
As the lights go down
        C                          G
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
       Am     F              C       G  Am F
'Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
          C      G       Am    F          C       G Am
And the sparks fly, baby smile, and the sparks fly


BACK TO DECEMBER 
D   Bm G (2x)

D
I'm so glad you made the time to see me
Bm
How's life, tell me how's your family
G                        D   A
I haven't seen them in a while
D
You've been good, busier than ever
Bm
We small talk, work and the weather
G                              D  A
You're guard is up, and I know why

Bm                    A
Because the last time you saw me
           D                          G
It's still burned in the back of your mind 
            Bm          A                  G    
You gave me roses and I left them there to die

   D
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            F#m
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D                A              
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't
(D)
Nothing but missing you
F#m      
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G
When you were mine 
       D
I'd go back to December, 
A                           G 
Turn around and make it all right
     Bm *once         A*           
I go back to December all the time


D   Bm G (2x)

D                         
These days I haven't been sleeping
Bm
Stayin' up playing back myself leaving
G                                      D  A 
When your birthday passed and I didn't call
       D            
Then I think about summer all the beautiful times 
Bm
I watch you laughing from the passenger side
G                               D  A
And realized I loved you in the fall

Bm                     A
And then the cold came the dark days
     D                  G
When fear crept into my mind
            Bm                   
You gave me all your love and
      A           G
All I gave you was goodbye


   D
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            F#m
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D                A             
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't
(D)
Nothing but missing you
F#m      
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G
When you were mine 
       D
I'd go back to December, 
A                         G 
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm               A            
I go back to December all the time


D  Bm G (2x)
 
            Bm            G 
I miss your tan skin your sweet smile
   D              A
So good to me, so right
            Bm              G
And how you held me in your arms
               D
That September night
                   A           Bm -stop  
The first time you ever saw me cry
                              G -stop
Maybe this is wishful thinking
                          D
Probably mindless dreaming
(D)                                     A *once
If you loved again I swear I'd love you right

       Bm *once         A*              G*
I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
          Bm*              A*          G*
So if the chain is on your door I understand

    D
But this is me swallowing my pride 
            F#m                             
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D              A
Back to December...
   D  
It turns out freedom ain't
(D)            
Nothing but missing you
F#m                              
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G  
When you were mine 
       D  
I'd go back to December 
A                           G                           
Turn around and make it all right
       D         
I'd go back to December
A                         G
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm *once         A*        
I go back to December all the time

D  Bm G         D  Bm G *once
        All the time


SPEAK NOW 
G G 

G                    D
I am not the kind of girl 
              Am
Who should be rudely barging in
     C
On a white veil occasion 
    G                       D
But you are not the kind of boy 
              Am                    C -stop
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

G                       D
I sneak in and see your friends 
        Am            
And her snotty little family 
    C
All dressed in pastel 
    G                   D
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid
          Am
Somewhere back inside a room 
          C
Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

Am      C      G
Thi--is i---is surely not 
                          D
What you thought it would be
Am   C                  G
I---I  lose myself in a daydream
n.C.
Where I stand and say


G               D                  
Don't say "Yes" run away now
Am                        
I'll meet you when your out 
       C                      G
Of the church at the back door
              D                       
Don't wait or say a single vow 
Am
You need to hear me out
         C -stop              
And they said "Speak Now"


G D Am C 
     

G                   D
Fond gestures are exchanged 
        Am                         
And the organ starts to play a song 
     C
That sounds like a death march
    G                     D
And I am hiding in the curtains
              Am
It seems that I was uninvited 
        C
By your lovely bride-to-be

Am      C      
She---e floats down the aisle 
       G            D   
Like a pageant queen 
    Am   C
But I--I kno--ow 
    G
You wish it was me
    D -stop
You wish it was me- Don't you?



G               D                  
Don't say "Yes" run away now
Am                        
I'll meet you when your out

Don't wait or say a single vow

Don't say "Yes" run away now

Don't wait or say a single vow

Your time is running out
         C               G
And they said "Speak Now"

  D    Am    C    G
Ohooho laaaahhoh
D                    Am       C   
Oooh(Say you see me now)ooohooh


Em* -Once               C*
I hear the preacher say speak now 
           G*        D*   D
Or forever hold your pe---ace
Am                 
There's a silence, there's my last chance 
C               
I stand up with shaky hands 
    G       D -once
All eyes on me
Am                        C
Horrified looks from everyone in the room
    G                   D -once
But I'm only lookin' at you



G                    D
I am not the kind of girl 
              Am
Who should be rudely barging in
     C
On a white veil occasion 
    G                       D
But you are not the kind of boy 
              Am                     C
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

 
      G               D                  
Oops! Don't say "Yes" run away now

Don't wait or say a single vow

You need to hear me out
     C               G
They said "Speak Now"
                  D
And you say "Lets run away now"
     Am                
I'll meet you when I'm out
      C                    G
Of my tux at the back door
       D
Baby I didn't say my vows
   Am
So glad you were around
          C                  G -once
When they said "Speak no--ow"


DEAR JOHN 
E Asus2 (2x)


E                                                      Asus2
Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you
E                                                   Asus2
Counting my footsteps, prayin' the floor won't fall through, again
B                       C#m       B
My mother accused me of losing my mind
      Asus2
But I swore I was fine


E                                                  Asus2
You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain
      E                                                        Asus2
And I lived in your chess game but you changed the rules every day
B                          C#m         B          Asus2
Wonderin' which version of you I might get on the phone, tonight.
       B                           C#m        B            Asus2
Well I stopped pickin' up and this song is to let you know why


     E                                  A
Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone.
                          C#m
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
    B                           A
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home.
          E      Asus2
I shoulda known.


     E                                      Asus2
Well maybe it's me and my blind optimism to blame.
           E                                                Asus2
Maybe it's you and your sick need to give love then take it away.
    B                          C#m          B
And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors
    Asus2
Who don't understand.
              B                    C#m               B
And I'll look back in regret how I ignored when they said
        Asus2
"Run as fast as you can."


     E                                  A
Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone.

Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong.
                               C#m                        B
Don't you think nineteen's too young to be played by your dark twisted games 
       A
When I loved you so?
          E     Asus2
I shoulda known.


           C#m
You are an expert at sorry
    B
And keeping lines blurry
    A
And never impressed by me acing your tests
        C#m
All the girls that you run dry
     B
Have tired lifeless eyes
           A
'Cause you burned them out
    B
But I took your matches
  C#m             B
Before fire could catch me
   Asus2
So don't look now
    B
I'm shining like fireworks
A                   E     Asus2    C#m    B    A
Over your sad empty town


     E                                  A
Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone.
                          C#m
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
    B                           A

Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
    B                       Asus2   
The girl in the dress wrote you a song.

            E    
You shoulda known.
            Asus2
You shoulda known.
E                              Asus2
     Don't you think I was too young?
                   E
You shoulda known.

THE STORY OF US
Capo 2
-Intro-
A Bm Dsus2 G
A Bm Dsus2 G


D                   A                          G
I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us
                                        D
How we met and the sparks flew instantly
             A                           G        
People would say, "They're the lucky ones"
D                 A                        G
I used to know my place was a spot next to you
                                            D
Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
                           A                       G
'Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on


A                  Bm
Oh, a simple complication
          D               Asus4
Miscommunications lead to fall out
G
So many things that I wish you knew
A
So many walls up I can't break through


D                Asus4              Em7
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
              G       D
And we're not speaking
                 Asus4              Em7                               
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
                  G                 
Like it's killing me?
Bm                   A                    D                  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  G                                       
When it all broke down
        Bm                  A                  G                                                 
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now-  Next chapter

                           
A  Bm  Dsus2  G


D                    A                       
How'd we end up this way?
                 G              
See me nervously pulling at my clothes
                       D
And trying to look busy
                      A               G
And you're doing your best to avoid me

D                         A                          G
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us
                                            D
How I was losing my mind when I saw you here
                  A                               G
But you held your pride like you should have held me


A                           Bm
Oh, we're scared to see the ending
           D                  Asus4
Why are we pretending this is nothing?
G
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
A                     -stop
I've never heard silence quite this loud


D                Asus4              Em7
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
              G       D
And we're not speaking
                 Asus4              Em7                               
And I'm dying to know is it killing you
                  G                 
Like it's killing me?
Bm                   A                    D                  
I don't know what to say since a twist of fate
                  G                                       
When it all broke down

A  Bm  Dsus2  G
A  Bm  Dsus2  G


D -once                           G 
    This is looking like a contest
(G)                              
Of who can act like they care less
D                          A              G
But I liked it better when you were on my side
D                             G
The battle's in your hands now
(G)
But I would lay my armor down
   Bm              A                G
If you'd say you'd rather love than fight


G
So many things that you wish I knew
        A                   -stop     
But the story of us might be ending soon


D (2x *fast/stop)                                         
  Now I'm standing alone 
 Asus4 (2x*)       G -once             G

Your little hands wrapped around my finger
         G               A
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
D           A                         
Your little eyelids 
Bm                   A  
Flutter cause you're dreaming
     G                        
So I tuck you in 
             A
Turn on your favorite night light

G                         Bm   
To you, everything's funny

It could stay this simple

You're in the car on the way to the movies

And you're mortified your mom's dropping you off

And you can't wait to move out
            A
Someday and call your own shots

G                                               Bm
But don't make her drop you off around the block
                                  G
Remember that she's getting older too
(G)                                                           
And don't lose the way that you dance 
 A                                 
Around in your PJs getting ready for school



D  A                 Bm        A             
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
     A               D
Just stay this little
   A                 Bm        A            
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
          A              G
It could stay this simple
                         Bm
And no one's ever burned you
                       G
Nothin's ever left you scarred
                           A
And even though you want to
                       D A Bm A G A
Just try to never grow up
                            


G                     D                      A       G
Take pictures in your mind of your childhood rooOOoom
                 D                      A
Memorize what is sounded like what your dad gets home
                 G                   D
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
             Asus4                     A
And all your little brother's favorite songs
G               D            Asus4                   A        
I just realized everything I had is someday gonna be gone

D         A        Bm       A
So here I am in my new apartment
     G                    A
In a big city, they just dropped me off
D            A            Bm          A
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
     G                          A            G  D  Asus4 
So I tuck myself in and turn my nightlight on


                     G  D  Asus4
Wish I'd never grown up
           A                         
I wish I'd never grown up

D     A       Bm           A                
Ohhh, I don't want to grow up
         G                   
Wish I'd never grown up
      A
Could still be little
D   A         Bm           A
Ooohh I don't want to grow up 
         G
Wish I'd never grown up 
         A              D
It could still be simple

There I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles
C                           G
Same old tired, lonely place
G                     Bm
Walls of insincerity Shifiting eyes and vancancy 
C                           G
vanished when I saw your face
                     C                 Em     D

Bm                                C                         G
Across the room your silhouette starts to make it's way to me
    G                            Bm
The playful conversation starts Counter all your quick remarks 
      C                     G
like passing notes in secrecy
        C                 Em     D
And it was enchanting to meet you
                    C                Em     D
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

The lingering question kept me up 2am, who do you love?
  C                        G
I wonder till I'm wide awake
G                              Bm
Now I'm pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door
      C                       G
I'd open up and you would say,
        C                 Em     D
It was enchanting to meet you

I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
              G      D                C
I'll spend forever wondering if you know

This is me praying that this was the very first page
               D           C
Not where the story line ends
                            Em           D       C
My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again

I was enchanted to meet you

BETTER THAN REVENGE
Capo 2
Intro: Am  F  C  G x2

Am                                              F
The story starts when it was hot and it was Summer
        C                                     G
And, I had it all; I had him right there where I wanted him
Am                                        F
She came along, got him alone, and let's hear the applause
C*                                         G*
She took him faster than you can say sabotage
Am                                    F
I never saw it coming, wouldn't have suspected it
C                             G
I underestimated just who I was dealing with
Am                                                 F
She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum 
C*                                G*
She underestimated just who she was stealing from 

G (building intensity)

Am                                           F
She's not a saint and she's not what you think 
                C             G
She's an actress, Whoa
Am                                           F 
She's better known for the things that she does 
                C              G
on the mattress, Whoa
Am 
Soon she's gonna find 
                F                                                 G
Stealing other people's toys on the playground 
                                           F
Won't make you many friends 
Am
She should keep in mind,

Am  F  C  G

Am                                          F
She lives her life like it's a party and she's on the list 
C                                            G
She looks at me like I'm a trend and she's so over it 
Am                                        F
I think her ever present frown is a little troubling 
           C*                                                 G*
And, she thinks I'm psycho cause I like to rhyme her name with things, but 
Am                              F
Sophistication isn't what you wear, or who you know 
C                                                G
or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go 
Am                                                      F
Oh they didn't teach you that in prep school, so it's up to me 
C*                                            G*
But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity 


Am                                           F
She's not a saint and she's not what you think

She's an actress, Whoa

Stealing other people's toys on the playground 
                                           F
Won't make you many friends 
Am
She should keep in mind,

She should keep in mind 
                              G~

F (strumming building intensity)

Am~                                                   F~
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at honey 
        G~                                 F~
You might have him, but haven't you heard

Do you still feel like you know what you're doing

INNOCENT 
Capo 4
Intro: Am C F   Am C F


Am             C                  F     Am
   I guess you really did it this time
         C                F     Am
Left yourself in your war path
          C                 F     Am
Lost your balance on a tightrope
          C                     F    G
Lost your mind trying to get it back

          Am    F                          G
Wasn't it easi--er in your lunchbox days?
         Am     F                  G
Always a bigger bed, to crawl into
          Am    F                                    
Wasn't it beautiful when you believed in everything
G* -once        Am*         F*    
  And everybody believed in you


C                                   
 It's alright, just wait and see your,

Who you are is not what you've been, 
                         Am  C  F
You're still an innocent
                         Am  C  F
You're still an innocent


Am         C                      F    Am
  Did some things you can't speak of
      C                         F     Am
But tonight you'll live it all again
                C                      F     Am
You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now
                C                  F         G

LAST KISS
Capo 3
G(x2) Em7(x2) Cadd9 D

G
I still remember the look on your face,
Em7
Lit through the darkness at 1:58,
Cadd9
The words that you whispered for just us to know.
D
You told me you loved me so why did you go 
G
Away?

 Em7
Away.

Cadd9 D

G
I do recall now the smell of the rain,
Em7
Fresh on the pavement. I ran off the plane.
Cadd9
That July 9th, the beat of your heart.
   D
It jumps through your shirt. I can still feel your arms.

        Cadd9
But now I'll go sit on the floor,
        G
Wearing your clothes.
                     Cadd9
All that I know is I don't know.
                        D
How to be something you miss.

                            G         Em7
I never thought we'd have a last kiss.
                    Cadd9    Em7 D
Never imagined we'd end like this.
Cadd9                            D
Your name forever the name on my lips.

G
I do remember the swing in your step.
    Em7
The life of the party, you're showing off again.
    Cadd9
And I roll my eyes and then you pull me in.
    D
I'm not much for dancin', but for you I did.
        G
Because I love your handshake, meetin' my father.
  Em7
I love how you walk with your hands in your pockets.
        Cadd9
How you kissed me when I was in the middle of sayin' something.
        D
There's not a day I don't miss those rude interruptions.

    Cadd9
And I'll go sit on the floor,
        G
Wearing your clothes.
                     Cadd9
All that I know is I don't know
                        D
How to be something you miss.

                            G         Em7
I never thought we'd have a last kiss.
                    Cadd9    Em7 D
Never imagined we'd end like this.
Cadd9                            D
Your name forever the name on my lips.

      Cadd9 D
Oo-oo-ooh.

   G                       Em7
So I'll watch your life in pictures
                         Cadd9
Like I used to watch you sleep
                     D
And I'll feel you forget me
                        G
Like I used to feel you breathe
                          Em7
And I'll keep up with our old friends
                         Cadd9
Just to ask them how you are.
                         D
Hope it's nice where you are.

      Cadd9
And I hope the sun shines and it's a beautiful day
    G
And something reminds you, you wish you had stayed.
        Cadd9
You can plan for a change in the weather in town,
    D
but I never planned on you changing your mind.

   Cadd9
So I'll go sit on the floor,
        G
Wearing your clothes.
                     Cadd9
All that I know is I don't know
                        D
How to be something you miss.

                            G         Em7
I never thought we'd have a last kiss.
                    Cadd9    Em7 D
Never imagined we'd end like this.
C                                D
Your name forever the name on my lips.
              G
Just like our last kiss.
                       Em7
Forever the name on my lips.
                       Cadd9 D
Forever the name on my lips.
              G
Just like our last.


LONG LIVE 
Intro:G,C,Em,D,C
                    G                        C
I say remember this moment In the back of my mind
                            Em
The time we stood with our shaking hands
     D                      C
The crowds in stands went wild 
                          G
We were the kings and the queens
                      C
And they read off our names 
                              Em
The night you danced like you knew our lives
       D              C
Would never be the same
                           Em                      C
You held your head like a hero On a history book page
                     Em   D                      C
It was the end of a decade But the start of an age

Chorus
       G                          C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C               G
One day we will be remembered

Verse 2
                      G                             C
I said remember this feeling I passed the pictures around
                          Em                 D
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines
           C
Wishing for right now
                          G                                          C
We are the kings and the queens You traded your baseball cap for a crown
                       Em              D                    C
When they gave us our trophies And we held them up for our town
                    Em                              C
And the cynics were outraged Screaming, "this is absurd"
                       Em
'Cause for a moment a band of thieves in 
D                        C
ripped up jeans got to rule the world

Chorus
       G                          C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em                 D
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid
      G                           C
Long live all the mountains we moved
                      Em
I had the time of my life
                       D
Fighting dragons with you
                        G                     C
I was screaming, "long live the look on your face"
                       Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C                G
One day we will be remembered

Bridge
C            Em
Hold on to spinning around
    C     Em
Confetti falls to the ground
          C
May these memories break our fall

Verse 3

                 G
And you take a moment
            C
Promise me this:
                          Em
That you'll stand by me forever
        D                          C
But if God forbid fate should step in
                     G
And force us into a goodbye
                          C
If you have children someday
                        Em     D
When they point to the pictures
                     C
Please tell them my name
                    C
Tell them how the crowds went wild
                 D
Tell them how I hope they shine

Chorus
      G                            C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                      Em         D
I had the time of my life with you
           G                          C
Long,long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em                 D
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid
      G                           C
Long live all the mountains we moved
                      Em
I had the time of my life
                       D
Fighting dragons with you
      G                     C
long live the look on your face
                       Em

OURS
Capo 5 
Intro
G, Em7, Cadd9

G        Em7               Cadd9
Elevator buttons and morning air
G                  Em7                     Cadd9        
Strangers' silence makes me wanna take the stairs
G                    Em7                Cadd9       
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares
          G    D/F#       Cadd9
But right now, my time is theirs

   G               Em7                    Cadd9
Seems like there's always someone who disapproves
        G                  Em7               Cadd9 
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
        G                  Em7                Cadd9
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
           G    D/F#             Cadd9
The jury's out, but my choice is you

Cadd9                   D
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
G                     Em7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    Cadd9      D         Em7
And life makes love look hard
               Cadd9
The stakes are high
            D
The waters rough
                 G, Em7, Cadd9, G, Em7, Cadd9      
But this love is ours

    G               Em7                  Cadd9
You never know what people have up their sleeves
G                     Em7               Cadd9
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
G              Em7                Cadd9
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
             G    D/F#                   Cadd9
But I don't care, cause right now you're mine

               Cadd9                D
And you'll say don't you worry your pretty little mind
G                     Em7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    Cadd9      D         Em7
And life makes love look hard
               Cadd9
The stakes are high
            D
The waters rough
                 G, Em7, Cadd9, G, Em7, Cadd9      
But this love is ours

Em7          D/F#           Cadd9
And it's not theirs to speculate
        Em7  D/F# Em7            D/F#               Cadd9        Em7  D/F#
If it's wrong and your hands are tough but they are where mine belong and
Em7              D/F#               Cadd9           Em7  D/F# Cadd9
I'll fight their doubt and give you faith with this song for you

G                Em7              Cadd9
Cause I love the gap between your teeth
G              Em7              Cadd9
And I love the riddles that you speak
        G                     Em7          Cadd9                   G
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
D/F#              Cadd9
Cause my heart is yours

Cadd9                   D
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
G                     Em7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    Cadd9      D         Em7
And life makes love look hard

Cadd9                   D
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
G                     Em7  
People throw rocks at things that shine
    Cadd9       D          G   Em7
But they can't take what's ours
Cadd9      D           Em7
They can't take what's ours
               Cadd9
The stakes are high
           D
The waters rough
                 G
But this love is ours
