John Legend - Ordinary People Chords

[Intro] x4 
Bbmaj7 Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 
 
[Verse 1] 
  
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9 
Girl I'm in love with you, but this ain't the honey moon. 
                            F 
We're past the infatuation phase. 
Bbmaj7                           Ebmaj9 
We're right in the thick of love.  At times we get sick of love. 
                           Fmaj13 
It seems like we argue every day. 
 
[Chorus] 
       Bbmaj7                    Ebmaj9 
I know I've misbehaved and you've made your mistakes 
                                      Fmaj9 
and we've both still got room left to grow. 
           Bbmaj7                  Ebmaj9 
And though love sometimes hurts, I still put you first. 
                                     Fmaj9 
And we'll make this thing work but I think we should take it slow. 
 
[Chorus] 
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9                          Fmaj7 
We're just ordinary people.  We don't know which way to go. 
Bbmaj7             Ebmaj7   Ebmaj9                   Fmaj9 
'cause we're ordinary people, maybe we should take it slow. 
        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9 
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow. 
        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj13 
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow. 
  
[Verse 2] 
Bbmaj9                   Ebmaj9 
This ain't a movie, naw.  No fairy tale conclusion, y'all. 
                            Fmaj7 
It gets more confusing every day. 
     Bbmaj9                           Ebmaj9 
Oh, sometimes it's heaven sent, then we head back to hell again. 
                               Fmaj7 
We kiss then we make up on the way. 
  
[Chorus] 
       Bbmaj7                    Ebmaj9 
I hang up, you call.  We rise and we fall, 
                              Fmaj9 
and we feel like just walking away. 
       Bbmaj7                   Ebmaj9 
But as our love advances, we take second chances. 
                            Fmaj9 
Though it's not a fantasy, I still want you to stay. 
 
[Chorus] 
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9                          Fmaj7 
We're just ordinary people.  We don't know which way to go. 
Bbmaj7             Ebmaj7   Ebmaj9                   Fmaj9 
'cause we're ordinary people, maybe we should take it slow. 
        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9 
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow. 
        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9 
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow. 
  
[Bridge] 
         Bbm7 
Take it slow. 
                           Db/Eb 
Maybe we'll live and learn.  Maybe we'll crash and burn. 
Fmaj9 
Maybe you'll stay; maybe you'll leave; maybe you'll return. 
Bbm7                 Db/Eb 
Maybe another fight; maybe we won't survive; 
Fmaj9 
But maybe we'll grow.  We never know, baby, you and I. 
 
[Chorus] 
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9                          Fmaj7 
We're just ordinary people.  We don't know which way to go. 
Bbmaj7             Ebmaj7   Ebmaj9                   Fmaj9 
'cause we're ordinary people, maybe we should take it slow 
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9                          Fmaj7 
We're just ordinary people.  We don't know which way to go. 
Bbmaj7             Ebmaj7   Ebmaj9                   Fmaj9 
'cause we're ordinary people, maybe we should take it slow 
  
[Outro] 
       Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9 
Take it slow, oh oh. 
                        Fmaj9 
This time we'll take it slow. 
       Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9 
Take it slow, oh oh. 
                        Fmaj7 
This time we'll take it slow. 
      Bbmaj7  Ebmaj7  Ebmaj9                 Fmaj7 
Take it slow, slow.  This time we'll take it slow. 
       Bbmaj7    Ebmaj7                       Fmaj13 
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.
