Lana Del Rey – Hope Is A Dangerous Thing
Verse 1:
      Am
I was reading Slim Aarons
     G                      D
And I got to thinking that I thought
   Am
Maybe I'd get less stressed
G                    D
If I was tested less like all of these debutantes
Am                        G
Smiling for miles in pink dresses
                   D
And high heels on white yachts
    Am      G     D
But I'm not, baby I'm not
    Am     G      D
No, I'm not that, I'm not

Chorus 1:
          C                    D
I've been tearing around in my fucking nightgown,
         Em                 C
Twenty-four seven, Sylvia Plath
C                       D
Writing in blood on the walls 'cause the ink
        Em                       C
In my pen don't work in my notepad
      C                     D
Don't ask if I'm happy, you know
                      G          D/F#        C
That I'm not, but at best I can say I'm not sad
       C                   G
'Cause hope is a dangerous thing
                  D/F#
For a woman like me to have
C                   G
Hope is a dangerous thing
                   D/F#
For a woman like me to have

Am G D
Am G D

Verse 2:
      Am
I had fifteen-year dances,
        G                       D
Church basement romances, yeah I've cried
Am                        G
Spilling my guts with the Bowery Bums
        D
Is the only love I've ever known
  Am
Except for the stage
         G                   D
Which I also call home when I'm not
Am                  G                        D
Servin' up God in a burnt coffee pot for the triad
  Am                        G
Hello, it's the most famous woman
                 D
You know on the iPad
Am                      G
Calling from beyond the grave,
                  D
I just wanna say, "Hi, Dad"

Chorus 2:
          C                     D
I've been tearing up town in my fucking
                   Em                C
White gown like a goddamn near sociopath
C                     D
Shaking my ass is the only thing
                 Em                      C
That's got this black narcissist off my back
    C                        D
She couldn't care less and I never cared
                 G          D/F#      C
More so there's no more to say about that
       C                   G
Except hope is a dangerous thing
                 D/F#
For a woman like me to have
C                   G
Hope is a dangerous thing
                  D/F#
For a woman with my past

Verse 3:
          Am
There's a new revolution,
    G                   D
A loud evolution that I saw
Am                    G
Born of confusion and quiet
              D
Collusion of which mostly I've known
  Am                      G
A modern day woman with a weak
                     D
Constitution 'cause I've got
Am                      G
Monsters still under my bed
                    D
That I could never fight off
  Am                    G
А gatekeeper carelessly dropping
                D
The keys on my nights off

Chorus 3:
          C                    D
I've been tearing around in my fucking nightgown,
         Em                 C
Twenty-four seven, Sylvia Plath
C                        D
Writing in blood on your walls
                      Em                        C
'cause the ink in my pen don't look good in my pad
     C                          D
They write that I'm happy, they know
                    G             D/F#        C
That I'm not but at best, you can see I'm not sad
    C                   G
But hope is a dangerous thing
                  D/F#
For a woman like me to have
C                   G
Hope is a dangerous thing
                   D/F#
For a woman like me to have

Outro:
C                   G
Hope is a dangerous thing
                  D/F#
For a woman like me to have
    C     G         D/F#
But I have it, yeah I have it
      C     G    D/F#   C
Yeah, I have it, I have
