Verse:
Am                        Dm
First I was afraid, I was petrified
              G             G7               Cmaj7
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
      Fmaj7                         Bm7   
But I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
       E      E  E                    E
I grew strong, I learned how to carry on
              Am              Dm
and so you're back from outer space
              G              G7                 Cmaj7
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
              Fmaj7                                Bm7   
I should have changed my stupid lock I should have made you leave your key
         E                  E               E              E
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

Chorus:
          Am              Dm
Go on now go walk out the door
          G         G7                 Cmaj7
just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore
                Fmaj7                    Bm7   
weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
              E      E              E            E
you think I'd crumble you think I'd lay down and die


           Am           Dm
Oh no, not I, I will survive
   G              G7                 Cmaj7
as long as i know how to love I know I will stay alive
         Fmaj7                         Bm7   
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give
            E    E          E    E
and I'll survive, I will survive

Bridge:
 Am  Dm  G  G7  Cmaj7  Fmaj7  Bm7     E  E  E  E
 Am  Dm  G  G7  Cmaj7  Fmaj7  Bm7     E  E  E  E

Verse:
        Am                            Dm
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
            G                G7           Cmaj7
kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
            Fmaj7                          Bm7   
and I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
          E    E       E               E
I used to cry,   Now I hold my head up high
            Am          Dm
and you see me somebody new
             G                 G7              Cmaj7
I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you
           Fmaj7                            Bm7   
and so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
        E             E          E                    E
now I'm saving all my loving for someone who's loving me

Chorus:
          Am              Dm
Go on now go walk out the door
          G         G7                 Cmaj7
just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore
                Fmaj7                    Bm7   
weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
              E      E              E            E
you think I'd crumble you think I'd lay down and die

  1. One chord I would change is Bm7. play the 5th (F#) flat. In other words 2nd string first fret. Bm7b5

  2. New to ukulele? Try subbing the ‘Fmaj7 and E’ for ‘F and E7’ until you build up your hand strength.

  3. love this song sooo easy t play
