[Intro]
C  Fsus2  C
 
 
[Verse 1]
C                Fsus2             C    G/B
 Look at us, we made it out alive
Am                         Fsus2           C
 Those were the years that I learnt to survive
                       Fsus2       C      G/B
Maybe youth ain't the time of our lives
Am     Fsus2       C       Fsus2
 They just romanticise it
              Fsus2             C    G/B
Met you at a party on Halloween
Am                    Fsus2       C    Fsus2
 You were studying at university
               C            Fsus2                C
And all your friends would laugh and joke about me
    G/B       Am           Fsus2               C
But I didn't mind being a punchline at sixteen
 
 
[Chorus]
                      F
I liked that you were older
G                   Am           C
 But at the time I didn't understand
                          F
It's 'cause you held the power
G                        Am                  C
 And I thought love was meant to feel like that
                  F
All the things I gave you
G                    Am                  C
 Now I wish I could take them all right back
                   F
'Cause I wasn't a woman yet
G                Am    C
 But you were a man
              F     G             C
I was just a girl in love with a man
 
 
[Verse 2]
C                     Fsus2              C    G/B
 And it felt like a twisted game you'd play
Am                    Fsus2           C
 Of who could take my innocence away
    Fsus2    C
But it wasn't yours
     Fsus2           C    G/B
No, never yours to claim
                 Am            Fsus2              C
I thought that to love was to give yourself away
 
 
[Chorus]
                F
It sent me into orbit
G                  Am              C
 Knowing that you wanted me like that
           F
Didn't see a problem
G                  Am              C
 It's only now I'm older, looking back
              F
Made me feel so special
G               Am             C
 Now the only thing I feel is mad
                F
'Cause I wasn't a woman yet
G                Am    C
 But you were a man
         F           G
I wasn't a woman yet, but now I am
 
 
[Bridge]
Dm
 You'd pick me up in your car
          F
We'd go speeding down the lanes
                 Dm
I'd meet you in town
                          F
With my fake ID, claiming I was 23
             Dm
To get into bars
           Dm
I'd never felt so cool and
 F                                Dm
Now I know you probably knew that I
                         F
Would do anything to impress you
           Dm                     F
And now I wonder, is that how they get you?
 
 
[Chorus]
                    F
They say that your youth is
G                 Am           C
 Meant to be the time of your life
               F
But I feel fucking stupid
G                  Am          C
 That I was crying over older guys
                       F
Bet they don't think about it
G                     Am            C
 Wish I knew what I know now back then
                F
'Cause I wasn't a woman yet
G                Am    C
 But you were a man
           F        G             C
I was just a girl in love with a man

                  Look at us, we made it out alive

Met you at a party on Halloween

And all your friends would laugh and joke about me
But I didn't mind being a punchline at sixteen

I liked that you were older
But at the time I didn't understand
It's 'cause you held the power
And I thought love was meant to feel like that
All the things I gave you
Now I wish I could take them all right back
'Cause I wasn't a woman yet
