Jessie Reyez - No One's In The Room Chords

[Intro]
Am

[Verse 1]
  Am                       G
 I'd go to church every Sunday
     C                             E
 But teenage love still took my virgin skin
  Am                         G                     C
 And the night after my first time I cried, 'cause I
                          E
 Thought Heaven wouldn't let me in

 Am                                 G
 Meanwhile the priest has got a boyfriend
      C                      E
 And lots of teachers smoke weed after school
   Am                              G
 When you're young, they try to keep you in the cages but
  C                           E
 Most of them don't follow their own rules
 
[Pre-Chorus]
              Dm
 Spend your whole life being graded
        Em
 Being told you're not enough
         F                                E
 Being told go find the one and sit and wait for death to come
          Am
 But I don't wanna
                    G                                      D
 I need to talk to God, there's things I just don't understand

[Chorus]
        F     G                      C
 Like who am I when no one's in the room?
   F     G                       C
 Who am I when no one's in the room?
            F
 Does the voice in my head, 
       G                                 Am
 that talks me off the ledge, belong to me?
                           F
 Or does it come from the clouds?
 F      G                       C
 Who am I when no one's in the room? (Hmm)
 
[Verse 2]
  Am                      G
 Go to school and get a good job
   C                             E
 Just to work your life away and pay your debts
 Am                               G 
 And even those who live their dreams out
  C                                       F
 Cry 'cause all that glitters ain't what you expect

    Am                       G 
 Sometimes I don't want to sing no more
            C                                E 
 Slit my throat and take my music back from evil men
   Am                          G
 They can put my body in the ocean
            C                                 E
 So I can die wearin' a smile and maybe find peace again

[Pre-Chorus]
             Dm
 Spend my whole life being graded
         Em
 Being told I'm not enough
         F                                E
 Being told go find the one and sit and wait for death to come
              Am
 But I don't wanna
                   G                                  D
 I need to talk to God, there's things I just don't understand

[Chorus]
       F      G                         C
 Like who am I when no one's in the room?
  F    G                         C
 Who am I when no one's in the room?
            F
 Does the voice in my head, 
       G                                 Am
 that talks me off the ledge, belong to me?
                              F
 Or does it come from the clouds?
   F     G                      C
 Who am I when no one's in the room? (Hmm)
 
[Bridge]
   Dm         E                 Am
 Vices only pacify for the moment
  Dm               E              Am
 Vices that they made to hold our pain
    Dm        E                Am
 Vices only pacify for the moment
   Dm               E          Am
 Vices that they made to hold our pain
 
[Pre-Chorus]
             Dm
 Spend your whole life being graded
        Em
 Being told you're not enough
          F                               E
 Being told go find the one and sit and wait for death to come
             Am
 But I don't wanna
                    G                                   D
 I need to talk to God, there's things I just don't understand

[Chorus]
       F      G                         C
 Like who am I when no one's in the room?
  F    G                         C
 Who am I when no one's in the room?
            F
 Does the voice in my head, 
       G                                 Am
 that talks me off the ledge, belong to me?
                              F
 Or does it come from the clouds?
   F     G                      C
 Who am I when no one's in the room? (Hmm)
 
[Outro]

 Who am I when no one's in the room?
