Intro: Bm Bm G

Verse:
	D	Em	   G
And I'd give up forever to touch you
	 Bm	       A           G
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
	   D	      Em	  G
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
      Bm	    A		  G
And I don't want to go home right now

Verse:
    D	      Em	    G
And all I can taste is this moment
    Bm	      A		      G
And all I can breathe is your life
    D	      Em	 G
And sooner or later it's over
       Bm	     A	      G
I just don't want to miss you tonight

Chorus:
      Bm	     A	      G
And I don't want the world to see me
	 Bm		  A	 G
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
     Bm		  A	     G
When everything's made to be broken
       Bm	   A	      G
I just want you to know who I am

Verse:
	D		Em		 G
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
       Bm	 A	       G
Or the moment of truth in your lies
     D	        Em	       G
When everything feels like the movies
	  Bm		A	    G
Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

Chorus:
      Bm	     A	      G
And I don't want the world to see me
	 Bm		  A	 G
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
     Bm		  A	     G
When everything's made to be broken
       Bm	   A	      G
I just want you to know who I am

    i feel like -5 sounds actually more accurate compared to the sound of the real song

    i feel like -5 sounds actually more accurate to the original sound of the song

  3. DarkSummerDay

    -2 is easy for me, but it’s still a little tricky for some.

  4. uke piano bro

  6. What would be the strumming for this song i cant quite figure it outD:

  7. Anjaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    If you replace Bm with D it’s a lot easier :)

  9. Maddylentil

    It sound best on +2

  10. Killjoy playing ukulele

    Anyone know the strumming pattern?!!!

    • maria.music

      Strumming patterns can´t always be “taught”, and right now I’m at school so i can’t play this to make it sure but my best guess is a really really basic D UDUD or an even easier UDUD ;)

    • MyPrettyWeeper

      D-DUDU works for me

  11. (-___-)

    Much luv very good kinda hard to master tho. <3

  12. Last year the Turkish visa was £10.. I was pleaslently surprised at the frieedlinnss when I was there, wasn’t sure what to expect with the country being Islamic, and alas about the only reference I had previously had was the movie Midnight express!So I did some research and discovered so many British women have Turkish boyfriends who quite often have more than one British girlfriend, felt like I was going to be stepping in to a soap opera..But at the end of the day the good old standard of treating them with respect and expecting the same in return made it a very enjoyable holiday.

  13. -2 is a good alternative

  14. First song I’ve ever done completely on ukulele, thank you so much!

  15. coughSLEEPINGWITHSIRENScough

  16. this is great !

  17. Seems to work much better turned down a step (-2)… Very Nice, thanks!

  18. JJBCREATE

    Love this song so much!!!
    Thanks for the lyrics and chords!
