Intro: B  Bbm

Verse 1:
  Ultimately I don't understand a thing
I try to do the best I can

I know you try to do the same
We're just so bound to make mistakes

You could call it a disposition
I apologize for all your tears

I wish I could be different
But I'm still growing up
Into the one you can call your love
I don't know if I'll ever be enough
I'm throwing in my chips

I guess I tend to push my luck

Verse 2:
  And ultimately I believe we'll be okay
It's so cliche to say these things, but repetition is a key
I think I'm better when I'm with you

But I worry when you're gone
I think I need to learn to love myself

I must learn to be strong
So for now we'll say goodbye

Although it pains me in my heart
Your words they come to me in memories

They sing to me like songs
It won't be long until I'm here

Soon I'll make my arrival
Under shady trees

A quiet street

The roads that I have traveled

Verse 3:
  Ultimately it's a beautiful thing
Like flowers blooming in a lonely field

The petals drift through crossing winds
They find their way to river streams
That scent the water beautifully, it takes me back to you

It takes me back to you

B  Bbm

  1. for the plucking part, after the Bb chord, i did (on the forth string) 8th fret, 5th fret then 3rd.
    after the Am chord, i did (on the first string) 2nd fret, 3rd fret, no fret (just the reg g chord)

  2. Does anyone have the finger picking figured out?

    • StanTheMan

      Yes, for the first part you go on the A string and go 8-5-3 and then the second part is on the E string and it goes 5-6-5-3-5

      • when you pick on the E string it’s actually 5 6 3 5 (that’s exactly how it is in the song) but you do you :) they both sound good

    • after Bb it goes
      4th string 8,5,3
      then after Am it goes
      3rd string 5,6,5,3,5

  3. TheTermsandConditionator

    I love how it counted the A in “A quiet street” as a chord.

  4. donnieboy

    hope this helps
    Right after the Bb After Am
    G——– G————
    C——– C————
    E——– E-5-6-5-3-5
    A-8-5-3- A————

  5. weird nonsense

    ahh this is also how i figured out to play the song by ear from a friend who is very talented in this area

  6. weird nonsense

    why arent the tabs here? i figured out the tabs of which is on the 4th string 8 5s3
    as for the next tabs after Am its on the 3rd string finger picking 5 6 3 5

  7. Ukulavery

    -5 easiest

  8. If you wanna know the riff after the Bb in the song is all on the A chord at the 8th fret,5th,3rd. The next riff is after you strum on the Am and you pluck on the E chord at the 5th fret,6th,5th,3rd,5th (relatively fast).

  9. ProbablyPanickingAtADiscoSomewhere

    After each Bb chord, I usually pluck a short little piece that’s goes along with the song, and I think it sounds really nice :) I’ll leave the notes below:
    After this, just play a soft Am and it sounds really peaceful and beautiful!
