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.

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.

Same with my kitten lol. Sad that she’s not around to do it anymore tho ;-;

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.

Savannah

thanks so much that was so much easier to sing too

Megan Biles

shadow_blackwood

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.

All Coldplay songs that I have played sound SO on the ukulele.

Liviyy_LunaUku

*so good

Extremely Confused

If this is too low for you, I use +5 transposer because I have higher voice and it works well for me.
