Intro: Dm Bb F Fsus2

Verse:
Dm          Bb                      F
Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
F                    Fsus2
You don't know how lovely you are.
Dm          Bb                  F
I had to find you, tell you I need you,
F                   Fsus2
Tell you I set you apart.

Verse:
Dm             Bb                       F
Tell me your secrets and nurse me your questions,
F            Fsus2
Oh lets go back to the start.
Dm             Bb               F
Running in circles, Comin' in tails
F             Fsus2
Heads on a science apart.

Chorus:
Bb     Bb                F
Nobody said it was easy,
F              Fsus2
Oh it's such a shame for us to part.
Bb     Bb                F
Nobody said it was easy,
            Fsus2                       C  
No one ever said it would be so hard.
C                    F
Oh take me back to the start.

Interlude: Bb F F Fsus2

Verse:
Dm            Bb                     F
I was just guessin' at numbers and figures,
F             Fsus2
Pulling the puzzles apart.
Dm              Bb                   F
Questions of science, science and progress
F                 Fsus2
Don't speak as loud as my heart.

Verse:
Dm                Bb                     F
And tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
          Fsus2
Oh and I rush to the start.
Dm           Bb               F
Runnin' in circles, Chasin' tails
F              Fsus2
Comin' back as we are

Chorus:
Bb     Bb                F
Nobody said it was easy,
F                              Fsus2
Oh it's such a shame for us to part.
Bb     Bb                F
Nobody said it was easy,
            Fsus2                       C  
No one ever said it would be so hard.
C                    F
Oh take me back to the start.

Interlude: Bb F F Fsus2  Dm Bb F Fsus2

I love this song!

I transpose it to +2 because the cords are easier and it fits my voice better. I also like to fade it out by playing the cords with one less string each time for the last four lines.

ddddd and DUDUDU are my strumming patterns, transpose in -5

Oh, the boredom!

I’m fairly new to ukulele but I am now almost perfect at many songs like this because of the boredom of staying at home all day. By the way, my cat loves to bite, scratch, and unroll toilet paper. OF ALL THINGS, TOILET PAPER.

It’s too low for me to sing in the original key but I found that it sounds really pretty with +5 if you have a higher voice.

This is a beautiful, poetical, and moving piece that so tenderly talks about real, saddening issues that countless people face everyday. I, as well as thousands of other, hold this song close to my heart. To criticize a song because of it’s tempo is immature and comparing it to an elementary rendition of an overused Christmas song is ridiculous. If you wish to play this song, put your heart into it, show some true emmotion. Or if you are lacking in feeling, leave people who actually appreciate and have a passion for music to play it. I hope, with practice,… Read more »

thank you, sage!!!
Karl, if you dont like a song please keep that to yourself. This song is very important and special to me and hearing this amazing song being torn down is hurtful. If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say it at all. Keep your negativity to yourself while looking at a song as beautiful as this.

Don't say that
Guest

Exactly what Cal said.

Honey, you don’t have to be here. I’m pretty sure there are plenty of tutorials for that “Jingle Bells” song you’re looking for ;)
Go criticize the music that has no true feeling like that one called Lean and Dab.
Don’t tear down the songs that are close to people’s hearts.

this song is very important to me as i cry everytime i hear it. as someone with anxiety, social anxiety, slight agoraphobia, medical episodes (caused by POT syndrome, (sleep) vaso vagel syncope, convulsive syncope, and low blood pressure) that left me with ptsd (for example: phobia of throwing up/passing out, terrified every time i get dizzy or have a stomach ache or if someone has thrown up in the past month.) ADHD, ADD, perfectionist episodes that leave me stressed out to tears, extreme levels of stress for only being 13, and a lot of phobias (snakes, spiders, heights, elevators, etc)… Read more »

Ok that's a lot
