First Place Chords and Lyrics by Maisie Peters
Artist : Maisie Peters
Song : First Place
Verse : G I can see you standing all alone Cadd9 At a party you don’t know no one
And it smells of beer and everybody here Em Is from the city
You never liked them said ‘their boots were far to big’ Cadd9 When you were with me, said my darling D ‘Promise here outside the bathroom’ Verse : G ‘You will never become one of them’ Cadd9 Obnoxious smoking high end cigarettes
Name dropping shakespeare off the heads. Em Your words washed over me mouthwash mixed with arrogance Cadd9 D A little boy who held a drink, and thought that made him
qualified to tell me, I embarrass him Chorus : Em Now the room is blasting house music, C I feel like I might lose it G D Everybody here is killing time Em Pour more in my cup prove it C I’m just as much grown up as you, G D I’ll dance til I forget the reasons why Cadd9 We even turned up in the first place Cm Why I am with you in the first place Verse : G I bet somebody turns the speakers up Cadd9 Blasting some old green day song
And you will say, that ‘they were way better a couple Em Years ago’ and heads will nod as if your word is law the teenage Cadd9 D Music connoisseur self assured I bet
from all your years of private school D Fresh faced, political Chorus : Em Now the room is blasting house music C I feel like I might lose it G D Everybody here is killing time Em Pretending to be rich and famous C Really we’re all lost and aimless G D Searching for the best that we can find Cadd9 And then you’ll try and pull me down a peg Cm And I will wonder why I’m here again Bridge : G Cadd9 Promising we wont be like our parents Em D Honestly I’m past the point of caring G Cadd9 Why all my views are fully formed or rounded Em When it comes down to it you’re just as small town D Little fish as me don’t you see your crown Is made of books Cadd9 That you brag about when really D Cadd9 Have you even looked past the Wikipedia page D Is this your grown up phase? Chorus : Em Now the room is blasting house music, C I feel like I might lose it G D Everybody here is killing time Em Pour more in my cup prove it C I’m just as much grown up as you, G D I’ll dance til I forget the reasons why Cadd9 We even turned up in the first place Cm Why I am with you in the first place
