Intro: G Am Em C

Verse:
G                Am  
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, 
Em                         C
drifting through the wind 
                       G
wanting to start again? 
                  Am                Em  
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin 
                     C
like a house of cards,
                        G 
one blow from caving in? 
                 Am                   Em
Do you ever feel already buried deep? 
                          C                            G
6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing 
                          Am                   Em
Do you know that there's still a chance for you 
                              C
'Cause there's a spark in you 

Pre-Chorus:
                G          Am          Em     C 
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine 
     G       Am             Em        C
Just own the night like the 4th of July 

Chorus:
                      G    Am
'Cause baby you're a firework
                   Em           C
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             G          Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em    C
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               G    Am
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Em     C
Come on, let your colors burst 
             G        Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em              C
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 


Verse -same chords as first Verse-:

You don't have to feel like a waste of space 
You're original, cannot be replaced 
If you only knew what the future holds 
After a hurricane comes a rainbow 

Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed 
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road 
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow 
And when it's time, you'll know 

Pre-Chorus:
                G          Am          Em     C 
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine 
     G       Am             Em        C
Just own the night like the 4th of July 

Chorus:
                      G    Am
'Cause baby you're a firework
                   Em           C
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             G          Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em    C
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               G    Am
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Em     C
Come on, let your colors burst 
             G        Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em              C
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 

Bridge:
G               Am
Boom, boom, boom       
                       Em           C
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
                           G           Am 
It's always been inside of you, you, you 
                            Em             C
And now it's time to let it through-ough-ough 

Chorus:
                      G    Am
'Cause baby you're a firework
                   Em           C
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             G          Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em    C
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               G    Am
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Em     C
Come on, let your colors burst 
             G        Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em              C
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 

Outro: 
G               Am
Boom, boom, boom 
                       Em              C
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
G               Am
Boom, boom, boom 
                        Em             C
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

Hey, just a tip for if you don’t want to keep scrolling and trying to play and sing all at once (okay maybe I’m the only one with this problem and I’m just posting this for myself), you can just play G, Am, Em, C over and over again and it works for the whole song, including the bridge!
Anyway, never forget that you’re beautiful, and there’s always someone who needs you and is inspired by you, wether you know it or not! Have a sparkling day, you incredible human being.

THANK YOU FOR THE TIP AND THE NICE WORDS!!!!!!

Arwen Bättig

If you play the -1 Version change all C’s to F’s, it makes it sound so much nicer!

Elizabeth

Thanks for the nice words you just made my day

Byrd

I think that +2 is easiest. I love this song! I’ve been playing it on the piano, and now I can also play it on the ukulele! Thank you!

Jayni Street

I recommend -1 and make the song your own change
The cords a little and the pitches

Hedderstheowl
