Verse:
BmBm chord      
I'm surrounded by stars
                 GG chord
They don't hear me wishin'
                 DD chord
It's funny how a crowded room
                 AA chord
Can feel so damn alone
             BmBm chord
They can't hear my mind
                    GG chord
Maybe they're just not listening
        DD chord
So I remind myself
                     AA chord
I'm better off on my own

Pre-Chorus:
      GG chord                DD chord               AA chord
Been standing on the edge for way too long
      GG chord                DD chord              AA chord
Just waiting for the place that I belong

Chorus:
      DD chord   AA chord  BmBm chord
I'm a satellite
      GG chord   DD chord  AA chord
I'm a satellite
            GG chord                DD chord
I'm on the outside, lookin' in
             AA chord                   BmBm chord
They don't know just where I've been
       GG chord  DD chord  -AA chord-
I'm a satellite

Unless you let me in

Verse:

                            GG chord
It's the life that I've been living
              DD chord
But when the sun comes up
                         AA chord
That's when the shadows grow
                 BmBm chord
They think they got it all
                               GG chord
They don't know what they're missing
        DD chord                                 AA chord
I got so much to give, but I'm keeping it close

Pre-Chorus:
        GG chord                     DD chord                   AA chord
These days are slow, but the night moves way too fast

Need to know you want me here before I ask

  playing in the darkness
DD chord                    AA chord
  AA chord lovely place to hide
BmBm chord     
  Oh, but hide and seek is only fun if, 
GG chord

  1. What’s the strumming pattern?

  2. PLEASE DO OUT LOUD

  3. you're welcome

    The reason that the Ab chord doesn’t sound right is cause it’s supposed to be played on the 3rd fret (because of the little three next to the chord chart)

  4. for the ourto i just repeat the chords of the chorus before the key change, sounds a bit better

  5. Move the Ab onto the 3 fret and it sound better and then it’s really easy

  6. Dodieismywife

    THIS IS BEAUTIFUL

  7. the key change may need revising, other than that, it’s pretty good

  8. Does the Ab chord sound wrong to you?

  9. I love this song, but the ab chord is kind of weird. It’s a little off, does anyone know what other chords you could play instead of ab?

  10. +3 and -5 are easiest. love this song!

  11. The Ab chord doen’t sound right to me

    • Dodieismywife

      Are you playing it in the right place, the G shape should go on the third and fourth thing (lol idk the names) and your pinkie should go on the fifth thing…

  12. kurriwonton

    I recomend +4. it sounds the most accurate in my opinion

  13. aesthetic-idccc

    PLEASE ADD OUT LOUD

  14. IVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG
