 [VERSE ONE]
  C 
 You left your typewriter at my apartment
  F 
 Straight from the tortured poets department
 C                          F 
 I think some things I never say
  F
 Like, "Who uses typewriters anyway?"

       Am                      G 
 But you're in self sabotage mode
       G                       C
 Throwing spikes down on the road
  C                          F 
 But I've seen this episode and still loved the show
 Am          G 
 Who else decodes you?

 [CHORUS]
       C                     F 
 And who's gonna hold you like me?
      C                        F
 And who's gonna know you, if not me?

 I laughed in your face and said
   Am                       G
 "You're not Dylan Thomas, I'm not Patti Smith
    C                     F 
 This ain't the Chelsea Hotel, we'rе modern idiots"
     Am            G             C 
 And who's gonna hold you like me?
 
 [POST CHORUS]
   F 
 Nobody
            C 
 No fucking body
    F 
 Nobody
 
 [VERSE TWO]
   C 
 You smokеd, then ate seven bars of chocolate
  F 
 We declared Charlie Puth should be a bigger artist
 C                                F 
 I scratch your head, you fall asleep
 F 
 Like a tattooed golden retriever

 Am                      G 
 But you awaken with dread
    G                      C 
 Pounding nails in your head
   C                F 
 But I've read this one where you come undone
    Am           G 
 I chose this cyclone with you

 [CHORUS]
       C                      F 
 And who's gonna hold you like me?
   F 
 (Who's gonna hold you? Who's gonna hold you?)
      C                      F 
 And who's gonna know you like me?
 F
 (Who's gonna know you?)
  F
 I laughed in your face and said

 Am                          G
 "You're not Dylan Thomas, I'm not Patti Smith
   C                             F 
 This ain't the Chelsea Hotel, we're modern idiots"
      Am            G          C  
 And who's gonna hold you like me?
    C 
 (Who's gonna hold you? Who's gonna hold you?)

 No fucking body

 Nobody
 
 [BRIDGE]
     C 
 Sometimes, I wonder if you're gonna screw this up with me
    F 
 But you told Lucy you'd kill yourself if I ever leave
   C 
 And I had said that to Jack about you, so I felt seen
   F 
 Everyone we know understands why it's meant to be

 C             F 
 'Cause we're crazy
   C                            F 
 So tell me, who else is gonna know me?
       Am                             G 
 At dinner, you take my ring off my middle finger
                    C                      F 
 And put it on the one people put wedding rings on
                   Am                 G
 And that's the closest I've come to my heart exploding

 [CHORUS]
   C                     F 
 Who's gonna hold you? (Who?)
  F
 Me
  C                     F 
 Who's gonna know you? (Who?)
 F 
 Me

  Am                            G
 And you're not Dylan Thomas, I'm not Patti Smith
   C                        F
 This ain't the Chelsea Hotel, we're two idiots
  Am            G    C 
 Who's gonna hold you?
 
 [POST CHORUS]
 C 
 Who's gonna hold you?
    C
 Who's gonna hold you?
 F 
 Who's gonna hold you?
  F 
 Who's gonna hold you?
  F 
 Who's gonna hold you?
  C 
 Who's gonna hold you?
  C 
 Who's gonna hold you?
  F 
 Gonna know you? Gonna troll you?
 
 [OUTRO]
   Am             G
 You left your typewriter at my apartment
   C                F 
 Straight from the tortured poets department
    Am       G       C F
 Who else decodes you?
