Billie Eilish - Getting Older: chords

            A#                        F
I'm gettin' older, I think I'm agin' well
                    Gm             F             D#
I wish someone had told me I'd be doin' this by myself
                          A#                                   F
There's reasons that I'm thankful, there's a lot I'm grateful for
                            Gm               F               D#
But it's different when a stranger's always waitin' at your door
           Cm                                 F
Which is ironic 'cause the strangers seem to want me more
              A#       G#     Gm
Than anyone before (Anyone before)
Cm                         D#
Too bad they're usually deranged

Last week, I realized I crave pity
When I retell a story, I make everything sound worse
Can't shake the feeling that I'm just bad at healing
And maybe that's the reason every sentence sounds rehearsed
Which is ironic because when I wasn't honest
I was still bein' ignored
(Lyin' for attention just to get neglection)
Now we're estranged

A#               F   Gm
Things I once enjoyed
 F              D#       A#
Just keep me employed now
                    F  Gm
Things I'm longing for
 F                D#
Someday, I'll be bored of
         Cm  F A# F Gm
It's so weird
             Cm                D#m
That we care so much, until we don't

I'm gettin' older, I've got more on my shoulders
But I'm gettin' better at admitting when I'm wrong
I'm happier than ever, at least, that's my endeavor
To keep myself together and prioritize my pleasure
'Cause, to be honest, I just wish that what I promise
Would depend on what I'm given, mmm
(Not on his permission)
(Wasn't my decision) To be abused, mmm

Things I once enjoyed
Just keep me employed now, mmm
Things I'm longing for, mmm
Someday, I'll be bored of
It's so weird
That we care so much until we don't

But next week, I hope I'm somewhere laughin'
For anybody asking, I promise I'll be fine
I've had some trauma, did things I didn't wanna
Was too afraid to tell ya, but now, I think it's time
