Intro (bell rings 3 times)

Our [A] life
To[A+]gether
Is so [F#m/A] precious
To[A+]gether
We have [A] grown
[E7] We have [A] grown [E7]

[E7] Although our [A] love
Is still [A+] special [F#m/A]
[A7] Let’s take a chance and fly a[D]way
Some[Dm]where
A[A]lone

Tempo change
It’s [A] been too long since we took the time
No [A+] one’s to blame I know time flies
So [Bm] quickly [E]

[Bm] But when I [E] see you darling
[C#m(4)] It’s like we [F#] both are falling in [Bm] love…again
It’ll [E] be
Just like starting [A] over [A+]
Starting [A] over [A+]

Every [A] day we used to make it love
[A+] Why can’t we be making love nice
And [Bm] easy [E]

[Bm] It’s time to [E] spread our wings and [C#m(4)] fly
Don’t let an[F#]other day go [Bm] by…my love
It’ll [E] be
Just like starting [A] over [A+]
Starting [A] over [G]

[NO CHORD] Why don’t we take off a[Am]lone
[D7] Take a trip somewhere far [G] far away
[Em] We’ll be together all a[Am]lone again
[D7] Just like we used to in the [G] early days
[E] Well well [D/F#] dar[E/G#]ling

It’s [A] been too long since we took the time
No [A+] one’s to blame I know time flies
So [Bm] quickly [E]

[Bm] But when I [E] see you darling
[C#m(4)] It’s like we [F#] both are falling in [Bm] love…again
It’ll [E] be
Just like starting [A] over [A+]
Starting [A] over [A+]

Our [A] life
To[A+]gether
Is so [F#m/A] precious
To[A+]gether
We have [A] grown [E]
[E] We have [A] grown [E]

[E] Although our [A] love
Is still [A+] special [F#m/A]
[A7] Let’s take a chance and fly a[D]way
Some[Dm]where
A[A]lone

[A][A+]
repeat vocal ad lib and face

The key was figuring out the opening chords, namely A+ and F#m/A. Once I had that figured out, the rest was easy.

Let me know what you think? I couldn’t find this tabbed out for ukulele anywhere online.
Hope you enjoy!
Sincerely
Nadja Dee
