Intro: Dm  G  C

  Dm      G       C
I'm lying on the moon
   Dm          G    C
My dear, I'll be there soon
       Dm     G      C
It's a quiet starry place
             Dm        G
Time's we're swallowed up
    F                   Fm            C
In space we're here a million miles away

-same chord pattern throughout the song-

There's things I wish I knew
There's no thing I keep from you
It's a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I'm safe and we're a million miles away

We're lying on the moon
It's a perfect afternoon
Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure I'm okay and
We're a million miles away

    I like +2 and +3 best if you have a more quiet but high voice like me. It compliments the voice well

    This is one of my favorite songs to play on the ukulele. An easy way to play it is for each cord use the strumming pattern down down up up down up throughout the whole song except with F and FM you just strum down once for each :)

    • There’s no wrong way to play a song, and, matter of fact, you need to give an explanation to prove your point otherwise I’ll just reject your statement. I think they’re doing it right and honestly, most people do it that way anyways.

    • This song sounds great with this strum pattern.

    • I agree! Very lovely way of playing. Love this song, thinking about performing with it. Sorry some people can be real pricks.

  3. Dm/G picking: 3-2-3-1-2-3 (1 being A string)
    C picking: 2-4-2-1-4-2 (1 being A string)
    Strum once for F and Fm, and then strum the C at the end
    This is for the movie version, idk if it made sense but it’s easier than actually writing out all the notes

  4. The fingerstylings according the the movie (Her) is 2-3-2-4-3-2 on each chords :)

  5. Not only is this easy, but it sounds melodic and amazing TOO!
    What an amazing song for a Ukulele!
