Gb                  Db                           Abm                      B
Hey stephen, I know looks can be deceiving but I know I saw a light in you
Gb                    Db                       Abm                       B
as we walked we were talking and I didn't say half the things I wanted to
Gb                        Db

Gb                              Db

    I really don’t listen to Taylor anymore and I listen to more alternative stuff now but I thought I’d play my favorite song by her on my uke as a way to revisit old times:)

  2. In the part where it’s say “ come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I left you” replace the G with an Em
    It sounds a lot better in my opinion

  3. +1 is so much easier

  4. I love it! Don’t forget to hum on the interlude parts :)
