               G    D
When I look into your eyes
                        G     D
It's like watching the night sky
          G        D 
Or a beautiful sunrise
                       A
There's so much they hold
                   G     D
And just like them old stars
                    G      D
I see that you've come so far
                   G   D
To be right where you are
                  A
How old is your soul?
  
Chorus:
           G        D  
I won't give up on us
           Bm           A 
Even if the skies get rough
                G       D      
I'm giving you all my love
                  A
I'm still looking up
     

                         G    D
And when you're needing your space
           G        D
To do some navigating
                 G        D
I'll be here patiently waiting
                  A
To see what you find
   
 
              G         D     
'Cause even the stars they burn
           Bm            A 
Some even fall to the earth
             G        D
We've got a lot to learn
                       A
God knows we're worth it
                 G
No, I won't give up


           G                    G           G
I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
              G                               A
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
          G                 G                      G
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
                         G                       A
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
            C                     C                       
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
            C              
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
A              A           A 
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
C             C              C
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
          A
And who I am

Chorus - x3 -:
           G        D  
I won't give up on us
           Bm           A 
Even if the skies get rough
                G       D      
I'm giving you all my love
                  A
I'm still looking up

i tested out all the half steps and found that none of them were in the songs original key which is fine (and normal cause the song is played on guitar and not uke) the plucking is all correct though :). If youre looking for the OG sound here it is:

strumming: DDUDU or 1,2&3&
chords:
Esus4 (G – 4th fret, C – 4th fret, open E, open A)
E (G – 1st fret, C – 4th fret, open E, A – 2nd fret) OR alt E chord (G – 4th fret, C – 4th fret, E – 4th fret, A – 2nd fret)
B (G – 4th fret, C – 3rd fret, E – 2nd fret, A – 2nd fret)
A (G – 2nd fret, C – 1st fret, open E, open A)
C#m (G – 1st fret, C – 1st fret, open E, A – 4th fret)

[Verse 1]

To be right where you are
B
How old is your soul?

I’m still looking up

[Pre-chorus 2]

Esus4 E
And when you’re needing your space
Esus4 E
To do some navigating
Esus4 E
I’ll be here patiently waiting
B
To see what you find

[Chorus]

A E
Cause even the stars, they burn
C#m B
Some even fall to the earth
A E
We’ve got a lot to learn

God knows we’re worth it
A
No, I won’t give up

[Bridge]

A
I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
A B
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
A
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts
B
We got yeah, we got a lot at stake
D
And in the end, you’re still my friend, at least we did intend
D
For us to work, we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
B
We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in
D B
I had to learn what I got and what im not
E
And who I am

[Chorus 2]

A E
I won’t give up on us
C#m B
Even if the skies get rough
A E
I’m giving you all my love

I’m still looking up

I’m still looking up

[Chorus 3]

A E
Well, I won’t give up on us
C#m B
God knows I’m tough enough
A E
We got a lot to learn
B
God knows we’re worth it

[Outro]

A E
I won’t give up on us
C#m B
Even if the skies get rough
A E
I’m giving you all my love
B
I’m still looking up
