Didn’t you hear Amanda’s moving back to Colorado? 
    G
It’s 2013 & the end of my life
  Em                                                  
Freshman year’s about to plummet just a little harder 
       Em

[Verse 2]
  G                                                   
I bleached half my hair when I saw Zoe on your Vespa, 
      G
it was orange from 3% peroxide, thanks to you
  Em                                             
I needed a good cry, I headed right to Kendra’s, 
  Em
I hated you and I hoped to God that you knew
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
            G
Now there’s drama (drama), found a club for that
            G
Where I met ya (met ya), had a heart attack
         Em
Yadda yadda, at the end, yeah we burned
         Em
Made a couple U-turns, you were it til you weren’t
 
 
[Chorus]
C                       C
  High school in Jakarta, sorta modern Sparta
G                          G
  Had no chance against the teenage suburban armadas
Am                 Am
  We were a sonata, thanks to tight-lipped fathers
Em                             D
Yeah living under that was hard, but I loved you harder

  High school in Jakarta, an elaborate saga
G                       G

Am                     Am
  You love/hate your mother, so do I
         Em

Got a group assignment, I’ll be at Vall’s place, 
G
You don’t text at all and only call when you’re off your face
    Em                                                 
I’m petty and say, “Call me when you’re not unstable”, 
  Em
I lie and tell you I’ll be getting drunk at Rachel’s
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
    G
I wasn’t, She doesn’t even drink
          G
But I couldn’t have you sit there and think
            Em
That you’re better, cause you’re older
         C
Are you better, now that we’re older?
 
 
[Chorus]
