Ab                Db
I don t know you but I want you
Ab                Db
All the more for that
Ab                     Db
Words fall through me and always fool me
Ab             Db
And I can t react


Fm         Eb      Db        Eb               Fm
Games that never amount to more than their meant
     Eb               Db 
Will play themselves out


Ab         Eb       Fm       Eb        Db
Take this sinking boat and point it home
      Ab         Eb  Db
We ve still got time
Ab          Eb       Fm        Eb      Db
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
       Ab       Eb   Db
You ve make it known


Ab               Db 
Falling slowly, eyes that know me
Ab              Db
And I can t go back
Ab                  Db
Moods that take me and erase me
Ab               Db
And I m painted black


Fm       Eb         Db         Eb               Fm
You have suffered enough and warred with yourself
     Eb             Db
It s time that you won


Ab         Eb       Fm       Eb        Db
Take this sinking boat and point it home
      Ab         Eb  Db
We ve still got time
Ab          Eb       Fm        Eb      Db
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
       Ab       Eb   Db
You ve make it known
Ab       Eb       Fm        Eb
Falling slowly, sing your melody
Db    Ab       Eb  Db
I ll sing it loud

  1. i cant believe ive been playing this intro diffrently/wrong for so many years now wow

  2. My_Pretty_Weeper

    The alternate intro is great, but does any know where I can find tabs for the whole thing?

  3. I am using d-du strumming pattern, what did you use?

  4. hollyhopkins

    Ladies if you’re having trouble singing this, I use capo 2. It’s makes the range easier to sing. Love this song so much I’m glad the chords are simple

  5. Chlorella101

    This helped me a lot with learning songs I will be using ukutabs a lot more now;)

  6. Harleymaybedead

    Love this- only thing is I’m fairly sure it’s “made it now” rather than “made it known” during the chorus. Thank you for this piece!

  7. primordialmonkeysoup

    I really love this arrangement and it was super helpful, but I feel like the C in the last line of the chorus should be a G instead, just so it isn’t quite so dissonant.

  8. love this song so so muchhhh !! <3 amazingggg yaarr

  9. happyface613

    The chords are great! My only comment would be that the last line of the chorus is, “You’ll make it now.” Other than that, great stuff
