Intro:  / C - - - / G - - - / Am - - - / F - - - /



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


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


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


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


Repeat Intro


C                                                        G

   Well open up your mind and see like me


open up your plans and damn you're free


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


We’re just one big family

                                                 F                                D/F# (hold)  

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


Chorus 2:

C               G

I won't hesitate no more,

        Am                 F

no more, it cannot wait I'm sure

                  C                  G                    

there's no need to complicate our time is

  Am                   F

short this is our fate, I'm yours


Instrumental w/scat:

/ C - C/B - / Am - Am7/G - / F - - - / D/F# - - - / x2



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


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


my breath fogged up the glass


and so I drew a new face and laughed


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


to rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons


it's what we aim to do


our name is our virtue


Repeat Chorus 1 x2


Repeat Intro x2


End on C
