Verse 1:
Gm            C
City of stars
                         Dm
Are you shining just for me?
Gm            C
City of stars
                             F       Am
There's so much that I can't see
    Gm      C
Who knows?
                         F         F7          F7
I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
     Gm      A7
That now our dreams
                     Dm
They've finally come true
 
Verse 2:
Gm             C
City of stars
                         Dm
Just one thing everybody wants
Gm                 C
There in the bars
                                   F             Am
And through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants
     Gm    C
It's love
                              F         F7        F7
Yes, all we're looking for is love from someone else
  Gm
a rush
  Gm
a glance
  A7
a touch
  A7
a dance
 
Chorus:
Bbmaj7                 C7
To look in somebody's eyes
                Dbdim
To light up the skies
            Dm
To open the world and send them reeling
Bbmaj7                      C7
a voice that says, I'll be here
               Dm
And you'll be alright
Bbmaj7                C7
I don't care if I know
                  Dbdim
Just where I will go
                  Dm
'Cause all that I need's this crazy feeling
Bbmaj7              A7
a rat-tat-tat on my heart...
 

                   Dm
Think I want it to stay
 
Verse 3:
Gm            C
City of stars
                         F
Are you shining just for me?
Gm
City of stars
A                         Dm
You never shined so brightly

Please I am new to ukulele, what does this mean? Thanks!

Joyce

This is for when you’re fingerpicking and not strumming. The numbers represent what fret your finger should be on, for each string respectively. The first top string is G, then C, E, and last is A.
For this, you’d pluck the C string on the 7th fret, then the E string with your finger on the 5th fret, etc.

cather

Thank you so much! This helped me out too!!

sophie

Ananu

I really like this! I do it twice, and for the second one, I took out a note. :)

The version before edit was a lot better. Is there a way to get the previous version?

Bele

Yes, I’m sad :(

Train

Try tuning your uke a half step down, its really beautiful

mcr is baCK

oh my god thak you so much!

jesus

for the strummingni use DUDUUDU on each chord as it sounds like the picking pattern at the start

LysieP3

If you’re have high alto voice like me, I recommend +2. It’s really pretty sounding!

Emily

Love this! Thank you!

Liliane rose

For the chorus, play Bb, C, Dm, and the Dm7 (if yo want to add some flare)

Liliane rose

Actually it’s Bb, C, A, Dm and then, if you want to, Dm7

Heyyo

I use C7 instead of C and I add an A7 on the 2nd line of every verse.

valllll

UhhhI’m not sure if I’m doing the intro right. The 7,6,5 sounds right but the 10,10,8,5 doesn’t. I’ve been trying to figure out an alternative but I’m stuck. Does that pattern sound like the original and am I doing it wrong or is it actually off?

Molly

It sounds fine to me. It sounds like the pattern that continues through most of the song in the original.

brendonsbagels

Oh btw playing a Dm7 at the end of the song right after the Dm is great

Yna

What’s the strumming pattern for this?
