Joshua Bassett - Telling Myself Chords

[verse 1]
Bm
Started out, started out so simple
        A
We were runnin' 'round, runnin' 'round like children
        G
How did we allow, we allow this story
   D       F#
To fall so south

Bm
What were we, what were we both thinking
        A
We were so naive, so naive believin'
        G
We were still happy, still happy
              D        F#
How could I ignore my doubts

[pre-chorus]
I keep on telling myself
Bm
We had something good
                     G
Did we stay together longer than we should
                        A
Were we just playing pretend because we could
                   E
Was it really that good

[chorus]
I keep on telling myself
Bm
It's not what it was
                      G
Did we just want to believe that this was love?
                        A
Was it really worth the trouble that it caused?
                    E
Look where we ended up

[post-chorus]
                    Bm
I keep on telling myself
                    G
I keep on telling myself
                    A
I keep on telling myself
                    E
I keep on telling myself, ooh

[verse 2]
Bm
Don't pretend, don't pretend
                       A
You're all of a sudden innocent, innocent
                     G
My darlin' how could you forget
                                 D      F#
You forget the first half of the story now

[pre-chorus]
I keep on telling myself
Bm
We had something good
                     G
Did we stay together longer than we should
                        A
Were we just playing pretend because we could
                   E
Was it really that good

I keep on telling myself

[bridge]
    G                      D               F#
And now that you’re gone I see it all clearly
    G                    D                 F#
And don't get me wrong I wouldn't change a thing

I keep on telling my

[pre-chorus]
I keep on telling myself
Bm
We had something good
                     G
Did we stay together longer than we should
                        A
Were we just playing pretend because we could
                   E
Was it really that good

[chorus]
I keep on telling myself
Bm
It's not what it was
                      G
Did we just want to believe that this was love?
                        A
Was it really worth the trouble that it caused?
                    E
Look where we ended up

[outro]
                    Bm
I keep on telling myself
                    G
I keep on telling myself
                    A
I keep on telling myself
                    E
I keep on telling myself, ooh
