Verse:
Db               Fm               Eb
Waiting for the time to pass you by
Db                 Fm                      Eb
Hope the winds of change will change your mind
Db              Fm               Eb
I could give a thousand reasons why
          Db    Fm             Eb
And I know you, and you've got to

Pre-Chorus:
Db                        Fm
Make it on your own, but we don't have to grow up
Eb                   Ab
We can stay forever young
Db                  Fm
Living on my sofa, drinking rum and cola
Eb                     Ab
Underneath the rising sun
Db              Fm               Eb   Ab
I could give a thousand reasons why
           Db    Fm          Eb
But you're going, and you know that

Chorus:
Ab                     Db      Fm
All you have to do is stay a minute
     Eb          Ab
Just take your time
    Db        Fm           Eb
The clock is ticking, so stay
Ab                  Db      Fm
All you have to is wait a second
     Eb        Ab
Your hands on mine
    Db        Fm          Eb
The clock is ticking, so stay

Post-Chorus:
Db Fm Eb Ab

Db Fm Eb Ab
       All you have to do is
Db Fm Eb Ab

Db Fm Eb Ab

Verse 2:
Db                Fm        Eb
Won't admit what I already know
     Db              Fm              Eb
I've never been the best at letting go
Db             Fm               Eb
I don't wanna spend the night alone
          Db     Fm      Eb
Guess I need you, and I need to

Pre-Chorus:
Db                      Fm
Make it on my own, but I don't wanna grow up
Eb                   Ab
We can stay forever young
Db                  Fm
Living on my sofa, drinking rum and cola
Eb                     Ab
Underneath the rising sun
Db              Fm              Eb     Ab
I could give a million reasons why
           Db    Fm          Eb
But you're going, and you know that

Ab                     Db      Fm
All you have to do is stay a minute

All you have to is wait a second
     Eb        Ab
Your hands on mine

The clock is ticking, so stay

    Hi brand new to ukulele and this site. What are the “+” and “-” numbers for?

    • cluelessbeginner

      same! i just assume things when i play……..or ask for help

    • Cupcake145

      Transposing += up, -= down

    • ooopsnevermind

      @Claudette: They refer to the yellow buttons at the top next to Transpose, which transpose the chords (move them all up, or all down, by a certain number of half steps). The effect of this is to change the key of the song, and picking a certain transposition can sometimes make the chords much easier to play.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
