verse 1 

D 
D 
Let's build a boat 
                                  G 
So we can sleep right where we sail 
                            Em 
You see a fish, I see a whale 
                             A 
Underneath this painted indigo 

Oh, where should we go next? 
D 
Let's build a boat 
                             G 
So we can say we saw the ocean 
                                 Em 
From our bedroom's cotton curtains 
                                 A 
While I was looking out the window 

Oh, I know that you wanna build it too 

Em 
 
Em G Don't pretend that you're not looking D For something more than growing up A Right now I should be writing flashcards But I'm stuck on pastel skies and apple eyes that say too much Em G So won't you come and ride the waves, boy D We can go anywhere we please A And then instead of revising We could sail to the horizon - And float out inside the sea
D verse 2 D Let's build a castle G So we can rule it as we choose Em And I'll spend days just simply talking to you A And I won't worry if I don't know how to factorise I'll blow the time off dandelions D Let's build a tree house G So we can hide up there forever Em We'll make a nest right out of feathers A And I will never have to choose Oh, you know that you wanna build it too D
Em G Don't pretend that you're not clueless At what the hell you're gonna do D Right now I should be drawing mind maps But I'm stuck on fairy letters A That make me think of you Em So won't you come and climb to me, boy G Coz we don't have to live like them D Instead of memorizing verbs We could sail right round the world A D And make it back again
D G Em A (x2) Bridge D Let's build a boat that's made for two G Oh, I know you want it just as much as me Em You're just afraid to give it all, in case you lose D But I'm not scared of falling G Oh no, I'm scared of being boring Em What if we never even try? What if we never find out why? A What if we grow up without really growing down? verse 3 D So please, please my darling G Just don't settle for what they want you to be Coz you are extra ordinary already Em And I know there's so much more inside your reach D And I can't prove it's worth it G Coz it's not safe and I don't know where we'll end up But hell, it's better than just waiting and taking Em The path they build for us Outro D Coz I don't think I could bear it G If when we're old and faded peach Em We can't tell each other stories of when we tried and flied A And made the jumps nobody thought we'd reach Coz life is made for living D So baby, oh, who knows what we'll be Oh, but youth is meant for taking and for breaking G And for building up the beautiful we'll be
