Billie Eilish - WHEN I WAS OLDER: chords

Bm         F#7
When I was older,
         Gmaj7             F#7
I was a sailor, on an open sea
Bm               F#7                    Gmaj7
But now I'm underwater, and my skin is paler,
                    F#7
than it should ever be
     Bm
Mmm-hmmm

Bm               F#7
I'm on my back again
Dreaming of a time and place
            Gmaj7
where you and I remain the best of friends
                       F#7
Even after all this ends, can we pretend?

I'm on my, I'm on my back again
It's seeming more and more
Like all we ever do is see how far it bends
Before it breaks in half and then
We bend it back again

Guess I got caught in the middle of it
Yes I've been taught, got a little of it
In my blood, in my blood
Memories burn like a forest fire
Heavy rain turns any funeral pyre to mud
In the flood

Chorus:
When I was older
I was a sailor on an open sea
But now I'm underwater
And my skin is paler than it should ever be

Bm
I'm watching movies back to back
in black and white, I never
Seen anybody do it like I do it any better
F#7
Then going over you, I'm overdue
for no endeavors
Nobody lonely like I'm lonely and
I don't know whether
Gmaj7
You'd really like it in the limelight
You'd sympathize with all the bad guys
F#7
I'm still a victim in my own right
But I'm the villain in my own eyes, yeah

Bm         F#7             Gmaj7             F#7
When I was older, I was a sailor, on an open sea
