          C  

Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it

   G

I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted

   Am                                                   F

I fell right through the cracks, now I'm tryin’ to get back

                 C

before the cool done run out I'll be givin' it my bestest

      G

and nothin's gonna stop me but divine intervention

    Am                                   F

I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

C               G

I won't hesitate no more,

        Am                 F

no more, it cannot wait I'm yours

C                                                        G

   Well open up your mind and see like me

                                                         Am

open up your plans and damn you're free

                                                    F

look into your heart and you'll find love love love love

C                                                                            G

Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing

                                   Am

We’re just one big family

                                                 F                                D/F# (hold)  

It's our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved Loved

                              C

I've been spendin' way too long checkin' my tongue in the mirror

       G 

and bendin' over backwards just to try to see it clearer

       Am

my breath fogged up the glass

               F

and so I drew a new face and laughed

    C               

I guess what I'm a sayin' is there ain't no better reason

    G         

to rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons

      Am

it's what we aim to do

      F

our name is our virtue

 

Repeat Chorus 1 x2
