Intro: E  Dbm  B  A

           E
Loving can hurt
           Dbm
Loving can hurt sometimes
             B                     A 
But it's the only thing that I know


             E
When it gets hard
                    Dbm
you know it can get hard sometimes
          B                                 A
it is the only thing that makes us feel alive


Dbm                           A
We keep this love in a photograph
E                       B
We made these memories for ourselves
          Dbm           
where our eyes are never closing
     A
our hearts were never broken
     E                        B
and times are forever frozen still


           E
So you can keep me inside the pocket of your
B
ripped jeans holdin' me closer til our
Dbm                          A
eyes meet, you won't ever be alone
                         E
Wait for me to come home


           E
Loving can heal
           Dbm
Loving can mend your soul
             B                      A
And it's the only thing that I know -know-


                    E
I swear it will get easier
                             Dbm
remember that with every piece of ya
             B                                    A
And it's the only thing we take with us when we die


Dbm                           A
We keep this love in a photograph
E                       B
We made these memories for ourselves
          Dbm           
where our eyes are never closing
     A
our hearts were never broken
     E                      B
and times forever frozen still


           E
So you can keep me inside the pocket of your
B
ripped jeans holdin' me closer til our
Dbm                          A
eyes meet, you won't ever be alone
           E
And if you hurt me well that's ok baby only
B 
words bleed inside these pages you just
Dbm                              A
hold me and I won't ever let you go


                     Dbm
Wait for me to come home
                     A       
Wait for me to come home
                     E
Wait for me to come home
                     B
Wait for me to come home


            E                               
Oh you can fit me inside the necklace you got when you were
B           
sixteen next to your heartbeat where I 
Dbm                                 A
should be, keep it deep within your soul
           E
And if you hurt me well that's ok baby only
B 
words bleed inside these pages you just
Dbm                              A
hold me and I won't ever let you go


          E                 
When I'm away I will remember how you
B                                     Dbm
kissed me under the lamppost back on 6th Street
                                 A
hearing you whisper through the phone

Wait for me to come home

  1. the strumming pattern DDUUDU was working pretty well for me. I did single strokes when it seemed iffy and the combination was actually pretty beautiful. i’m also a beginner so i transposed it -4. really loved it

  2. beltdemhighnotes

    +3 is great to sing along to for females with lowerish voices and is super easy to play along to

  3. Reminder112

    Transpose to -4 it is easiest

  4. Flyingcheetah

    This is like my most fave song ever.

  5. I don’t know if Dbm is the correct chord, but I think fingers for where Dbm is placed in the song should instead be on string 1 fret 1, string 2 fret 1, string 4 fret 4 (I think that’s how you say it, forgive if I’m wrong). I’m a bit knew regarding uke terms, but I believe that this correction sounds way better.

  6. cupcake172

    Can’t figure out what more -2 starts on for singing

  7. A|—–3-2-3————–
    C|—————1-0——-
    E|—0———————
    G|————0———–

  8. addyatthedisco

    I think -4 is the best for beginners but +2 is good for more advanced

  9. If you just do down strums all the way through it sounds good for a beginner.

  10. -4 is beautiful and easy
