Intro - x4 -: A  D

Verse:
                  A                                 D
Stopped me on the corner, I swear you hit me like a vision
               A
I-I-I wasn't expecting
            E                                       A
But who am I to tell fate where it’s supposed to go with it?
                          D
Don't you blink you might miss it
                           A
See we got a right to just love it or leave it, you find it and keep it
       E
'Cause it ain't every day you get the chance to say

Chorus:
A                     D                           A
Oh, this is how it starts, lighting strikes the heart
                     E
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
A                     D                       Gbm
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
                 E
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Interlude - x2 -: A  D

Verse:
           A                                       D
I've never seen it, but I found this love, I wanna feed it
                              A                                   E
You better believe, I'm gonna treat it better than anything I've ever had

'Cause you're so damn beautiful
A                                         D
Read it, it's signed and delivered, let's seal it
                         A
Boy, we go together like peanuts and paydays, Marley and reggae
    E
And everybody needs to get a chance to say

Chorus:
A                     D                           A
Oh, this is how it starts, lighting strikes the heart
                     E
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
A                     D                       Gbm
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
                 E
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Interlude - x2 -: A  D

Bridge:
Gbm                               D                                  A
     Everything is like a whiteout, 'cause we shicka-shicka-shine down
                                  E
Even when-the-when-the light's out, but I can see you glow
Gbm                             D                        Bm
     Got my head up in the rafters, got me happy ever after
                                   D               - stop -
Never felt this way before, ain't felt this way before


 A                      D
I swear you hit me like a vision
               A
I-I-I wasn’t expecting
                                 E
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?

Chorus:
A                     D                           A
Oh, this is how it starts, lighting strikes the heart
                     E
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
A                     D                       Gbm
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
                 E
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun
A                     D                           A
Oh, this is how it starts, lighting strikes the heart
                     E
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
A                     D                       Gbm
Oh, it could be the stars, falling from the sky
                 E
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Oh, this is how it starts, lighting strikes the heart
                  E
Goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
A                     D                           A

                  E
Goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun

Oh, this is how it starts, lighting strikes the heart

  1. Playing an E7 instead of the E chord sounds similar and is much easier!

  2. ArsenicCatnip

    If anyone’s having trouble with the E chord, you can play
    G4
    C4
    E4
    A7

    If you bar the 4th fret with your index finger and put your pinky on A7, it works quite well.

    Hope this helps! :33

  3. mxxxxexxxx000

    -2 is much easier :)
