[Verse 1]
G           Am               C          D             G    Am    C    D
I've always felt like life was slipping through my fingers.............
   G           Am             C         D         G    Am    C    D
So I've always loved like I was running out of time.................
      G       Am            C           D           G    Am    C    D
Since I was a kid I've been all weird and worried a?lot...............
      G        Am        C  D            G    Am    C    D
Guess I did my best to escape until I forgot...............

[Chorus]
     G            Am
It's nothing like the movies
     C            D
It's nothing like you think
       G          Am
You'll find me at the party
C         D
Crying at the sink
Em           D
I know about that broken...
C            Am
Feeling when you say
          C
“What a time
        G    Am    C    D
To be alive”.............
        G           C    D
To be alive, hummingbird...

[Verse 2]
G           Am       C       D            G       Am    C    D
I've always dreamt of picket fence and perfect teeth...........
G        Am          C         D      G    Am    C    D
I had no reason to believe in make-believe..............

[Chorus]
      G          Am
But I know about those mornings
     C         D
That crying in the car
    G             Am
You swore you wouldn't do it
        C          D
But you dived it after dark
     Em          G
It's really just a rebound
     C            A
It's clearly just the space
          C
Where you hide
         G    Am    C    D
To feel alive..............
      G  Am        C    D    Bm
Feel alive, hummingbird.........

[Bridge]
            C
Picture's imperfect
             Bm
But it never shows
                Am                C
I'm playing the part I've always known

[Outro]
         G    Am    C    D
To look alive..............
         G  Am        C    D
To look alive, hummingbird...
         G    Am    C    D
To look alive..............
         G  Am        C
To look alive, hummingbird
