And I think oh how I miss that bright sun
C           G                    F
Ill be a dreamer till the day I die

I spend a lot of nights on the run

and I think oh I'm lost and cant be found
C          G                    F
I'm just waiting for my day to come
            C          G               F
and I think oh I don't want to let you down
                             Am
cause something inside has changed

and maybe we don't want to stay the same

Spirits in my head and they won't go

Verse:
    F              C      
And I don't want a never ending life
        G                          Am
I just want to be alive while I'm here
    F              C      
And I don't want a never ending life
        G                          Am
I just want to be alive while I'm here
    F               C    
And I don't want to see another night
       G                            Am
lost inside a lonely life while I'm here

Sleep is for the sane

I use single down strums on the intro and the bridge, but for everything else, I use a DDU-UDU pattern. I also skip the G when it says “Am G”

Noemie

Because of the meaning of the original song, it’s kind of dark. It’s a good idea to make it kind of happy

Sunny D

uhhhhh what

Cassie_amelia

This song is so awesome

Cricket Noises

I found it best for the tune to play it:
D-U-DU

Ally

I disagree, I play it as DD-UU-DD but switch cords after the DD

Girl-of-music!?

I changed guns in my head to tuns in my head. And I changed the gun still rattles to the sun still rattles.

Confused gal

Why?

Lucille

I changed guns in my head to tuns in my head. And I changed the gun still rattles to the sun still rattles.

trASHTON

why?

ukulelelover

Question. Do I strum the cord when it shows the cord and only strum once or do keep strumming it until the next cord?

Crystal Condor

I strum until the next chord, but im not 100% sure. What I do is watch other people covers and see kind of how they are strumming.

(Not plagiarism, right?)

taliehere

you can totally do either, just find a way that you’re comfortable with. sometimes a song will have specific instructions, but even those can be broken if something else works better for you.

JubeJube

It depends really on the song. Normally you strum until the next chord but in lost boy at the start it is just 1 strum. so I recommend looking it up!

ghost boy

i used d-d-u as my strumming pattern! :)
