Verse 

Am                G/A           Am
I knew you were, you were gonna come to me
Am                G/A                   Am
And here you are, but you better choose carefully
Am            G/A        Am
ĎCause I, Iím capable of anything, 
Am            G/A Am
of anything and everything

Pre-Chorus 
Am               G/A Am
Make me your Aphrodite
Am                  G/A Am
Make me your one and only
Am        G/A          Am
But donít make me your enemy, 
Am          G/A Am
your enemy, your enemy

Chorus:
F            C                Am
So you wanna play with magic
                G                        F
Boy, you should know what you're falling for
            C                Am
Baby do you dare to do this?
                 G                  F
Cause Iím coming at you like a dark horse

        C                   Am
Are you ready for, ready for
  G                           F   
A perfect storm, perfect storm
      C                                  Am
Cause once youíre mine, once youíre mine
No chord
Thereís no going back
                 
Interlude: [Am] [G/A Am] x2

Mark my words
This love will make you levitate
Like a bird
Like a bird without a cage
But down to earth
If you choose to walk away, donít walk away

Itís in the palm of your hand now baby
Itís a yes or no, no maybe
So just be sure before you give it all to me
All to me, give it all to me

So you wanna play with magic
Boy, you should know what you're falling for
Baby do you dare to do this?
Cause Iím coming at you like a dark horse
Are you ready for, ready for
A perfect storm, perfect storm
Cause once youíre mine, once youíre mine (love trippin')
Thereís no going back

Rap part
(Same chords as the verse) 
Uh
Sheís a beast
I call her Karma (come back)
She eats your heart out
Like Jeffrey Dahmer (woo)
Be careful
Try not to lead her on
Shortyís heart is on steroids
Cause her love is so strong
You may fall in love
When you meet her
If you get the chance you better keep her
She's sweet as pie but if you break her heart
She'll turn cold as a freezer
That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor
She can be my Sleeping Beauty
Iím goní put her in a coma
Woo!

Fmaj
Damn I think I love her
               Cmaj 
Shorty so bad, Iím sprung and I donít care
            Am7 
She ride me like a roller coaster
           G
Turned the bedroom into a fair (a fair!)
Fmaj
Her love is like a drug
            Cmaj
I was tryna hit it and quit it
         G
But lil' mama so dope
     Am
I messed around and got addicted

Chorus
So you wanna play with magic
Boy, you should know what you're falling for (you should know)
Baby do you dare to do this?
Cause Iím coming at you like a dark horse (like a dark horse)
Are you ready for, ready for (ready for)
A perfect storm, perfect storm (a perfect storm)
Cause once youíre mine, once youíre mine (mine)
Thereís no going back

Lyrics come from AZlyrics so cheers to them

Tips and tricks
- Am/F has a different connotation than Fmaj7 but is essentially the same chord
- Am can and should be altered with Aadd9 if you play this acoustic solo
- Bass notes should be played as semibreves and not quavers if you play acoustic solo
- The intro can be used in the chorus
