Intro: E  Gbm  D

Verse:
E                     Gbm     D
  There's a place off Ocean Avenue

  Where I used to sit and talk with you
E                     Gbm     D
  We were both 16 And it felt so right

  Sleeping all day, staying up all
E   Gbm  D            E    Gbm D
  Night, Staying up all night

Verse:
E                      Gbm               D
  There's a place on the corner of Cherry Street

  We would walk on the beach in our bare feet
E                      Gbm           D
  We were both 18 And it felt so right

  Sleeping all day, staying up all
E  Gbm  D          E    Gbm   D
  Night, Staying up all night

Chorus:
           E             Gbm                  D
If I could find you now Things would get better
         E          Gbm             D
We would leave this town And run forever
        E           Gbm             D
Let your waves crash down on me and take me away, yeah

Interlude: E  Gbm  D

Verse:
E                   Gbm                  D
  Theres a piece of you that's here with me

  Its everywhere I go It's everything I see
E                Gbm                 D
  When I sleep I dream and it gets me by

  I can make believe that you're here
E     Gbm D                E    Gbm D
  tonight, That you're here tonight

Chorus:
           E        Gbm                  D
If I could find you now Things would get better
         E          Gbm             D
We would leave this town And run forever
           E          Gbm           D
I know somewhere, somehow We'll be together
         E           Gbm           D
Let your waves crash down on me and take me away, yeah

Interlude: A  A  Gbm  E  D

Bridge:
A
  I remember that look in your eyes
Gbm
  When I told you this was good bye
E
  You were begging me not tonight
D
  Not here Not now
A
  When looking up at the same night sky
Gbm
  And keep pretending the sun will not rise
E
  We'll be together for one more night
D
  Somewhere somehow

Chorus:
           E        Gbm                  D
If I could find you now Things would get better
         E          Gbm             D
We would leave this town And run forever
           E          Gbm           D
I know somewhere, somehow We'll be together
         E           Gbm           D
Let your waves crash down on me and take me away, yeah

  1. I found that a variant of E6, 1102, plays extremely well as a substitution for the standard E chord in this song and takes playing it in-key from a 4/5 difficulty to a 1.5/5.

  2. -2 and +3 are easiest

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

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.
