Bridge

And we walked down the block to my car

And I almost brought him up
G    G   B D      D        C   B 

But you start to talk about the movies
G      B     D   B   D     B B   D   D C 

That your family watches every single Christmas
B        D   D C       B G      E G   G E       E D 

And I will talk about that
D    D  D   G    G F#  D  

And for the first time, what's past is past
    B       B   B     A        B       C   B  G 


Chorus

'Cause you throw your head back laughin' like a little kid

I've been spending the last eight months

  1. I definitely agree with everything you said. The music video is also stunning as well. I wonder what filter they used to kind of get that cold, blue/gray look. I think it’s interesting how dreary and dark the video looks compared to the title and subject of the song.
