Intro: E  Abm

Verse:
E                                                    Abm
I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart
    E                                                          Abm
But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start

Pre-Chorus:
A            B           A
You put your arms around me
        B               E                  B     A    B
and I believe that it's easier for you to let me go
A                  B                 E      Abm
You put your arms around me and I'm home

Verse:
E                                                       Abm
How many times will let you me change my mind and turn around?
E                                                      Abm       Dbm
I can't decide if I'll let you save my life or if I'll drown

Chorus:
                B         E           A        Dbm
I hope that you see right through my walls
                B                   E        A        Dbm
I hope that you catch me 'cause I'm already falling
           B        E            A
I'll never let our love get so close
    A              B
You put your arms around me and I'm home

Interlude: E     Abm     E     Abm

Verse:
    E                                                           Abm
The world is coming down on me and I can't find a reason to be loved
  E                                                         Abm
I never wanna leave you but I can't make you bleed if I'm alone

Pre-Chorus:
A            B           A
You put your arms around me
        B               E                  B     A    Dbm
and I believe that it's easier for you to let me go

Chorus:
                B         E           A        Dbm
I hope that you see right through my walls
                B                   E        A        Dbm
I hope that you catch me 'cause I'm already falling
           B        E            A
I'll never let our love get so close

Bridge:
    A              B                Dbm       B    Abm    A
You put your arms around me and I'm home...
  Dbm              B             Abm           A
I tried my best to never let you in to see the truth
      Dbm          B
And I never opened up
        Abm
I never truly loved till

Pre-Chorus:
A            B           A
You put your arms around me
        B               E                  B     A
and I believe that it's easier for you to let me go

Outro:
                B         E           A        Dbm
I hope that you see right through my walls
                B                   E        A        Dbm
I hope that you catch me 'cause I'm already falling
           B        E            A
I'll never let our love get so close
    A              B                 E
You put your arms around me and I'm home
    A              B                 E
You put your arms around me and I'm home

    -4 is gorgeous for sopranos.

  4. -2 is also easier. Especially if you’re plucking the 2nd and 3rd strings for the verses.

  5. Raphael Morgan

    -4 is super easy to play and a good key for altos or high tenors (I’m a tenor, it was in my higher range but not too high)

  6. +3 sounds suuuuuper pretty if you have a high or low enough voice :) that, +1, and -4 are all easier alternatives to 0. It also sounds really nice for this particular song if you pluck instead of strum, alternating between the C string, and then the E and A strings at the same time, about four times each for the verse chords. Once you get into the pattern, it flows really nicely

  7. virgiariza1

    -4

  8. shipssinkmysoul

    +1 is also good

  9. KIllerMartian

    I like -4

    • theukulelememe

      Only for lower (alto or mezzo) voices. But -4 is an easier alternative with the chords, so if you want to keep the same pitch with simpler chords just put a capo on the 4th fret.

  10. +3 is also good!
