Piggyback by Melanie Martinez Guitar Chords

[Intro]
Dbm Abm x2

[Verse 1]
Dbm
I was three years old

All I wanted was the music and
Abm
My parents were doing everything they could
Dbm
To move away from our place working over time always
Abm
While I sat up in my grandma’s
Abm
Project building coloring, oh

[Bridge 1]
Dbm
Moved to a small town and
Abm
Started to, started to grow
Abm Dbm
Poetry written, I’m singing and dancing, oh
Dbm
Photographs, painting, cartoons
Abm
That’s all I know
Abm
That’s all I know, oh

[Verse 2]
Dbm
I have one best friend to this very fucking day
Abm
Since we were five years old and I fucking moved away
Dbm
I wish I never did cause
Dbm
She’s the only one who sees me
Abm
For who I really am instead of how many I reach, oh

[Bridge 2]
Dbm Abm
Trusted too many fake people while I was still young
Dbm
Gave them the benefit of the doubt, I was so wrong
Dbm Abm
I cut them off and they came for blood cause they know
Abm
They ain’t getting no more

[Chorus]
Dbm
I’m so done with playing piggy back, oh
Abm
Swear to god I wished y’all all the best, oh
Dbm
You’re lying your way to try to gain a piece of me
Abm
When you could never come close cause
Abm
I know my destiny
Dbm
I worked hard for my shit
Dbm
Put my love in this shit
Abm
Now you’re trying to kill my name for some fame
Abm
What is this?
Dbm
Tried to help you do your shit
Dbm
Encouraged you to work on it
Abm
Was a good friend and you used that to your advantage

[Verse 3]
Dbm
Now I’m 22 and I’ve had a crazy year of
Abm
Isolation from all the plastic people here
Dbm
I cannot wait for the day
Dbm
I can finally move away
Abm
Back to New York City where
Abm
The realest people really stay, oh

[Bridge 3]
Dbm
Oh, spent this whole time writing
Abm
Away my heart and my soul

The people I surround myself
Dbm
With have hearts filled with gold
Abm
Love and empathy are things that we hold so close
Abm
Trying to learn and evolve

[Chorus]
Dbm
I’m so done with playing piggy back, oh
Abm
Swear to god I wished y’all all the best, oh
Dbm
You’re lying your way to try to gain a piece of me
Abm
When you could never come close cause
Abm
I know my destiny
Dbm
I worked hard for my shit
Dbm
Put my love in this shit
Abm
Now you’re trying to kill my name for some fame
Abm
What is this?
Dbm
Tried to help you do your shit
Dbm
Encouraged you to work on it
Abm
Was a good friend and you used that to your advantage
