Ben Platt - Waving Through a Window Chords

[intro]
A/C#  Dadd9  E5
A/C#  Dadd9  E5

[verse 1]
A/C#               Dadd9        E5     E5
    I’ve learned to slam on the brake
A/C#         Dadd9   E5     E5
    Before I even   turn the key
A/C#          Dadd9        E5     E5
    Before I   make the mistake
A/C#          Dadd9         F#m     E5
    Before I lead with the worst of me

A/C#          Dadd9         E5     E5
    Give them no reason to stare
A/C#           Dadd9   E5       E5
    No slipping out if you slip away
A/C#          Dadd9      E5     E5
    So I got nothing to share
A/C#            Dadd9      F#m  E5
    No I’ve got nothing to say

[pre-chorus]
Bm7                 F#m       E
    Step out, step out of the sun
       A/C#         D
If you keep getting burned
Bm7                 F#m       E
    Step out, step out of the sun
   A/C#         D
Because you’ve learned
  E
Because you’ve learned

[chorus]
F#m
On the outside
D
Always looking in
       A            E
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
          F#m                      D
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    A                E
I’m waving through a window
F#m                D
I try to speak but nobody can hear
A                      E
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       F#m                           D
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    A                E           C#7/F
I’m waving through a window   Oh Oh Oh Oh
F#m      D       A
Oh   Can anybody see?
            E
Is anybody waving…

A/C#    Dadd9   E5     E5
back at me?

D  A  E  E

[verse 2]
A/C#             Dadd9        E5     E5
   We start with stars in our eyes
A/C#            Dadd9      E5     E5
   We start believing that we belong
A/C#          Dadd9        E5     E5
    But every sun doesn’t rise
A/C#          Dadd9            F#m     E5
   And nobody tells you where you went wrong

[pre-chorus]
Bm7                 F#m       E
    Step out, step out of the sun
       A/C#         D
If you keep getting burned
Bm7                 F#m       E
    Step out, step out of the sun
   A/C#         D
Because you’ve learned
  E
Because you’ve learned

[chorus]
F#m
On the outside
D
Always looking in
       A            E
Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?
          F#m                      D
Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    A                E
I’m waving through a window
F#m                D
I try to speak but nobody can hear
A                      E
So I wait around for an answer to appear
       F#m                           D
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    A                E           C#7/F
I’m waving through a window   Oh Oh Oh Oh

F#m      D       A
Oh   Can anybody see?
            E
Is anybody waving…

[interlude] x4
            A/C#        Dadd9                 E     F#m
When you’ve fallen in a forest, and there’s nobody around
        A/C#      Dadd9       E         F#m
do you ever really crash or even make a sound?

[bridge]
       A/C#        Dadd9
Did I even make a sound?
      E     F#m
Did I even make a sound?
           A/C#        Dadd9
It’s like I never made a sound
       E     F#m
Will I ever make a sound?

[chorus]

Cause I’m tap, tap, tapping on the glass
    Bb               F
I’m waving through a window
Gm                 Eb
I try to speak but nobody can hear

So I wait around for an answer to appear
       Gm                            Eb
Oh I’m watch, watch, watching people pass
    Bb                F           D7
I’m waving through a window   Oh Oh Oh Oh
 Gm       Eb       Bb
Oh   Can anybody see?
