[Verse 1]
D        G        D         G       Bm    A
Spent the morning cleaning my room
D            G        D    A     Bm      A  
In the hope, you'd ask to see it soon

D                     G     
Let's pretend it's our birthdays
D              G         Bm       A
Separated by a couple of years, and I'll
D            G                D
Meet you on the corner of the water
G        D        G                 Bm    A
And the Elizabeth Street pier

Wanna be aloned
Wanna be surrounded
Wanna be transient
G             Bm        A
Wanna be grounded
D                   G               D  
But all the dissonance disappears from me
G                 D           
When you drape an arm across my knee
G             Bm             A
Intentionally, lazily and...

D                G             D      G
You'll be the one looking confused
D       Em      D   G                Bm     A
And I'll be the one looking for you

D     G        D          G           D
      We are more than future housewives
G            Bm          A         D
More than the sum of our past lives
G             D          G              D
Two lovers in basically matching shirts
G        Bm       A
Jaywalk together across petrified earth
And if there's more to life
G            D       G         Bm    A
Let me forget all about it tonight
D          G
All I want occupying my mind
D                        G
Is, "What is the highest thing we can climb
Bm      A
Before sunrise?"

D                     G                Em       G
And you'll be the one in the comfortable shoes
D                   G
And I'll be the one who's probably too drunk But still wants to carry you
D         Bm      D
And you'll be the one

[G     D     G    A] 

D                      Em          D
You'll be the one

[Verse 2]
      And we'll laugh at everything so obvious
G          D
But in our hearts, we'll take it so serious
To the outside world
D               G             D
Stay oblivious, to all of our friends
D                  G
Our actions will be hideous
And I'll be intense
And I'll be too much
G            D
And I'll get too high
And I'll get too drunk
G              D
But in between episodes
             G         D                G         Bm    A
I'll love you more than anyone you have ever known

G                         D                 G
       And I don't mean to put the pressure on
D           G          
You're gonna like my dad
Bm               A        D
I know you'll love my mum and
G       D               G        D
I don't mean to put the pressure on
Got a few names for a daughter
Bm                 A
Can't think of one for a son
D        G                   D               G      D
         And I don't mean to put the pressure on
G                       Bm           A
I don't mean to put the pressure on
D             G
I'd do anything
D                   G
I'm here to see this through
D                     G
Anyway, hey, my name's Will
Ah, it's nice to meet you

Some of the chords i think were just typed wrong but theres basically just one progression so spot on! The original is tuned a half step down and played in Eb, I've tabbed the main riff which is super fun to play <3 <3 <3
Need to listen to the timing a but but its accurate!
