[Intro]
           G C
I tell you I
          G 
can visualise it all
    C                  
Too real it all seems
    Am         C                  G
But once again, runnin' away with me
Am         C                  G
Once again‚ runnin' away with me
     Am
This couldn't be a dream
C                  Gmaj7 Em Cmaj7 D
 Runnin' away with me
                  Gmaj7 Em Cmaj7 D
Runnin' away with me

[Verse 1]
       Am               Bm
And I stop myself for a minute
          Cmaj7
See if my heart's still in it
                         Am    Bm
Say a few things just to win it
                        Cmaj7
Funny how it works out‚ innit?

[Pre-Chorus 1]
                 Am               Bm         
And I told her‚ "Some things have their time
             Cmaj7
How can I be yours if you're not mine?"
           Am               G
She said, "They should take this pain
    Cmaj7     D
And give it a name"

[Chorus]
  Gmaj7    Em              Cmaj7 D
Tonight, I wish I was your boy‚ I

(Run away from me, run away from me)

(Run away from me, run away from me)
  Gmaj7    Em                Cmaj7  D
Tonight‚ I think I fu**** it royally

(Run away from me, run away from me)
(Run away from me, run away from me)

[Verse 2]
Am              Bm
Give yourself a new name
            Cmaj7
Change your voice on the train
                             Am   Bm
Have her complain about your fame
                        Cmaj7
Tell me that it's all a rigged game

[Pre-Chorus 2]
              Am               Bm
She told me, "Some things just take time
Cmaj7
How can you be sure if you won't try?"
             Am              G
She said, "I guess I'll take this pain
   Cmaj7        D
Instead of your name"

[Chorus]
  Gmaj7    Em              Cmaj7 D
Tonight, I wish I was your boy‚ I

(Run away from me, run away from me)

(Run away from me, run away from me)
  Gmaj7    Em                Cmaj7  D
Tonight‚ I think I fu**** it royally

(Run away from me, run away from me)

(Run away from me, run away from me)

[Bridge]
              Cmaj7
And it's been playing on my mind
  B                         Em
Unfortunately, I've been to this place in my life
A7
far too many times
Am                      D
Sunday's nearly over so I'll just lie awake
  Gmaj7    Em              Cmaj7 D
Tonight, I wish I was your boy‚ I
  Gmaj7    Em                Cmaj7  D
Tonight‚ I think I fu**** it royally
[Chorus]
  Gmaj7    Em              Cmaj7 D
Tonight, I wish I was your boy‚ I

(Run away from me, run away from me)

(Run away from me, run away from me)
  Gmaj7    Em                Cmaj7  D
Tonight‚ I think I fu**** it royally

(Run away from me, run away from me)

(Run away from me, run away from me)

Let this be known that during the time of lockdown that THE 1975 released "Tonight" so that we can vibe and chill while the world is going to hell. It's like sipping a cup of coffee while you amidst the battle field and not giving a f***! For some crazy reason, only The 1975 can pull off this kind of song. Why tho? How tho? We are all instrumentalist here, if you're checking out The 1975's song then I'm sure that they always have weird chord progressions and timing. It's crazy but like a moth to a bright light, we just keep on coming back. Amazing band! Cool song! And you first saw it here, at Ukulele.ph :)
