Intro: A  Asus4  A

Verse:
           A   Amaj7 A7  Dsus2
When the world gets too heavy
       A Amaj7 A7
Put it on my back,
    Dsus2
I'll be your levy.
Gbm B7       A6        A   
You   are   taking me apart
          Dsus2     Dm       A
Like bad glue on a get well card.

Verse:
       A  Amaj7 A7
It was al-ways you
 Dsus2
Falling for me.
    A        Amaj7  A7
Now there's always time.
Dsus2
Calling for me.
Gbm B7    
I'm the light
   A6           A          Dsus2
Blinking at the end of the road.
       Dm              Asus4  A
Blink back to let me know.

Verse:
       A  Amaj7   A7
I'm a fly that's trapped
Dsus2
In a web
          A Amaj7  A7
But I'm thinking  that
   Dsus2
My spider's dead.
Gbm B7     A6            A   
Lone-ly,  lonely little life.
        Dsus2
I could kid myself
     Dm               Asus4  A
By thinking that I'm fine.

Verse:
       A  Amaj7 A7
It was always you
 Dsus2
Falling for me.
    A        Amaj7  A7
Now there's always time.
Dsus2
Calling for me.
Gbm B7    
I'm the light
   A6           A          Dsus2
Blinking at the end of the road.
       Dm              Asus4  A
Blink back to let me know.

Bridge:
     A             D
That I'm skin and bone.
        Gbm     B7      D   Dm
Just a cane and rusty throne.
         A              D
All the castle's under siege.
         Gbm            B7           D   Dm
But the sign outside says leave me alone.

Verse:
       A  Amaj7 A7
It was always you
 Dsus2
Falling for me.
    A        Amaj7  A7
Now there's always time.
Dsus2
Calling for me.
Gbm B7    
I'm the light
   A6           A          Dsus2
Blinking at the end of the road.
                       Dm
Blink back to let me know.
                A
-It was always you-
 Dsus2                 Dm
Blink back to let me know.
                A
-It was always you-

    This was the song I used to teach myself ukulele, guitar and piano. I love it so much, it’s slow enough that I can pick it up but the hatred chords helped me learn them quickly, too!

  2. i strummed too hard and im bleeding internally

    oh my gosh!!! it’s such a pretty song!!

  3. Just in case someone didn’t know, the B7 chord is has the second fret barred and a finger on the third fret on the C string :)

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
