Almost Lover // A Fine Frenzy

Almost Lover – A Fine Frenzy

Intro: Am, F x2

Am
Your fingertips across my skin
F
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Am F
Images
Am
You sang me Spanish lullabies
F
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Am
Clever trick

G C
Well, I never want to see you unhappy
Dm G
I thought you’d want the same for me

[Chorus]
C
Goodbye, my almost lover
G
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
Am
I’m trying not to think about you
F
Can’t you just let me be?
C
So long, my luckless romance
G
My back is turned on you
Dm
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
F C
Almost lovers always do

Am
We walked along a crowded street
F
You took my hand and danced with me
Am F
Images
Am
And when you left, you kissed my lips
F
You told me you would never, never forget
Am F
These images, no

G C
Well, I’d never want to see you unhappy
Dm G
I thought you’d want the same for me

Chorus (same chords)

Am G
I cannot go to the ocean
F
I cannot drive the streets at night
Em
I cannot wake up in the morning
Am
Without you on my mind
G
Well so you’re gone and I’m haunted
F
And I bet you are just fine

(Hold F)

Did I make it that
Dm
Easy to walk right in and out
G
Of my life?

Chorus (same chords)

    What’s the strumming pattern for this song? I’m pretty new to the ukulele and I’m having a hard time getting the strumming down :[

    an easy strumming pattern is down up mute . but dont slap to mute it lightly stop it .

    I play the chords and just strum a simple down strum to the rhythm of the song.

Got something to say?
