[Verse 1]

(repeat chord progression throughout verses, listen to the song for the 
correct strumming, it helps a lot)

A              A
Please take me by the hand
F#m          E
It's so cold out tonight
I'll put blankets on the bed
I won't turn out the light
Just don't forget to think about me
And I won't forget you
I'll write you once a week she said


A    A    F#m    E


A           A
Why does it feel the same
   F#m             E
To fall in love or break it off
And if young love is just a game
Then I must have missed the kick off
Don't depend on me to ever follow through on anything
But I'd go through hell for you and


(repeat these chords for each chorus)

F#m       D               A     E
I haven't been this scared in a long time
And I'm so unprepared so here's your valentine
Bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody
This world's an ugly place, but you're so beautiful to me


A    A    F#m    E (x2)

[Verse 2]

A           A
I'll think about the times
F#m           E
She kissed me after class
And she put up with my friends
I acted like an ass
I'd ditch my lecture to watch the girls play soccer
Is my picture still hanging in her locker?

[Chorus x2]

F#m     D       A      E
