Verse:
Gm            C                        Dm
City of stars, are you shining just for me?
Gm            C                            F
City of stars, there's so much that I can't see
Gm        C                           F       F           Dm7
Who knows, I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
     Gm      A                            Dm    Dm7
That now our dreams, they've finally come true

Verse:
Gm            C                        Dm
City of stars, just one thing everybody wants
Gm               C                                   F
There in the bars and through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants
Gm        C                             F         F       Dm7
It's love, yes all we're looking for is love from someone else
  Gm                A
a rush, a glance, a touch, a dance

Chorus:
  Bb                 C                    A
a look in somebody's eyes to light up the skies
            Dm                Dm7
To open the world and send it reeling
  Bb                      C                    Dm
a voice that says I'll be here and you'll be alright
Bb                C                      A
I don't care if I know just where I will go
                  Dm                Dm7
'Cause all that I need’s this crazy feeling
  Bb                A
a rat-tat-tat on my heart
                   Dm    Dm7
Think I want it to stay

Outro:
Gm            C                        F
City of stars, are you shining just for me?
Gm            A                          Dm
City of stars, you never shined so brightly

  1. I think dm7 is better player as dm
    +2 works well too
    Love this song!

  2. I would use c7 instead of c

  3. bm sounds wayyyyy better instead of b in +2

  4. Rileyinthecrowd

    Sounds really good as a duet if first duke is tuned a tad lower

  5. Amanda Newton

    Love this. So helpful!! For a strumming pattern, pluck A,C,E,G in that order for every chord.

  6. Love this tab!!!!!!!!!!
    In this sentence:
    It’s love, yes all we’re looking for is love from someone else
    I play Gm C F Am instead of F twice. I think it sounds better.

  7. i feel dm7 is not needed and i just play dm instead and it sounds fine if not better??

  8. MeganRobinson

    A7 sounds really good in place of a lot of the As, really good tab x

  9. Love it! I think it’s fine the way it is with no transposing for my voice.

  10. bearstronaut

    i’m crying and my school is crying the teachers are crying

    < 3

  11. +2

  12. okay so for “embrace i shared with you” and “love from someone else” instead of F F Dm7 you can try playing F (DDU) A (DDU) Dm7 (D) and in the chorus you can use downstrokes for all of the chords if you want i usually continue to play Dm instead of playing Dm7 i don’t play anything on “think i want it to stay” but on stay i play the cute piano thing

    this one might be easier than the one provided

  13. My fingers are to short…lolz

  14. can someone explain how to do the intro?

    • I do this for the finger picking on each chord. It may take a minute to understand, but this is easier than what is provided, and sounds better. I usually just play the Gm and whistle (like in the song). Anyway, hope this helps!
