I Hate It Here chords by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift Chords

[Verse 1]
 Quick, quick
                   G                    D
 Tell me something awful like you are a poet
 Trapped inside the body of a finance guy
Bm                G
 Tell me all your secrets
 All you’ll ever be is
 My eternal consolation prize
                 G                   D
 You see I was a debutant in another life, but
 Now I seem to be scared to go outside
 If comfort is a construct, I don’t believe in good luck
 Now that I know what’s what
 I hate it here so I will go to secret gardens in my mind
 People need a key to get to, the only one is mine
   A                                               G
 I read about it in a book when I was a precocious child
 No mid-sized city hopes and small-town fears
 D                                             Bm
 I’m there most of the year ’cause I hate it here
                A  G
 I hate it here
[Verse 2]
 Bm                        G
 My friends used to play a game where
 We would pick a decade
 We wished we could live in instead of this
               G                       D
 I’d say the 1830s but without all the racists
 And getting married off for the highest bid
                G                          D
 Everyone would look down ’cause it wasn’t fun now
 Seems like it was never even fun back then
 Nostalgia is a mind’s trick
 If I’d been there, I’d hate it
 It was freezing in the palace
 I hate it here so I will go to Lunar valleys in my mind
 When they found a better planet Only the gentle survived
 I dreamed about it in the dark
 The night I felt like I might die
 No mid-sized city hopes and small-town fears
 D                                             Bm
 I’m there most of the year ’cause I hate it here
                A  G
 I hate it here
 I’m lonely, but I’m good
 I’m bitter, but I swear I’m fine
      G                                                      Em      Bm
 I’ll save all my romanticism for my inner life and I’ll get lost on purpose
                 G       D
 This place made me feel worthless
 Em                         Bm                                   G                       D
 Lucid dreams like electricity, the current flies through me and in my fantasies I rise above it
     G      N.C.
 And way up there, I actually love it
 I hate it here so I will go to secret gardens in my mind
 People need a key to get to, the only one is mine
   A                                               G
 I read about it in a book when I was a precocious child
 No mid-sized city hopes and small-town fears
 D                                             Bm
 I’m there most of the year ’cause I hate it here
                A  G
 I hate it here
 Quick, quick, tell me something awful
 Like you are a poet
                                   Bm      G  A  G  D
 Trapped inside the body of a finance guy
