Our Story The Judybats
This is "Our Story" from the JudyBats album
Something my friend the music major helped me work out.

Play each chord for one measure (4 beats).
A dash (-) indicates to keep playing the same chord.
Build up with E for two measures, then.
E C#m E D (2x)
[E] This is our [-]story.
[C#m] It's a [G#m]short one, but it's a
[F#m] Hard harsh [-]read.
Be[B]tween the lines, a little aching need.
[E] We're a [-]strange arrangement;
[C#m] No st[G#m]rings.
But th[F#m]e music we [-]make is
[B] Serpentine and bittersweet.
[E] In my [-]youth, you know,
[C#m] I loved you like [G#m]gangbusters.
[F#m]Now I watch you fall.
[B]Twisting, turning, growing small.
[E] You're a [-]roomful of sor[C#m]row,
A [G#m]spoonful of joy
[F#m] Another infidelity
Another [B]pain, another golden glitter boy.
I want [C#m]you. [-]I know it's crazy,
[B]But I really want to leave you, too.
I want [C#m]you. Boy, oh boy, you bring me [B]joy
And then you make me blue.
With intro chords:
I love to love you; I'm a fool.
You're callous and you're cold,
And oh, so cruel.
I'm starting to forget things.
Games played, plans laid.
Surely, there were promises made.
Good love is easy to find,
But it's hard to keep.
And though I hate it when you wake,
I still love to watch you sleep.
Repeat intro chords 4x during break.
Using chorus chords 1x through:
Remember the early days
When nickels were dimes,
And a dollar took us everywhere.
I don't think I ever combed my hair.
Is this our story?
Is this where the loving starts?
In the stillness, the staring,
The hardening of hearts?
We're a strange arrangement;
This is not my place, these are not my things.
It's not my way, the pain love brings.
Chorus. (repeat with vocal embellishments)
End on E.
