 Intro: Bsus - F#sus - Abm7 - E - E - F#sus - E - F#sus 

Verse 1:
C#sus Ebsus Esus F#sus*
We keep our love in a plain brown box, We keep it tied with a simple lock
C#sus Ebsus Esus F#sus*
We hold it close because it's all we got, We think it's ordinary but it's not
C#sus Ebsus Esus F#sus*
In a world that starting to fade, A little love could pave the way
[C#sus] Don't keep it tied with a [Ebsus]simple lock,[Esus] You think it's ordinary [F#sus]but it's not
[Bsus] And maybe this [F#sus] life is
[Abm7] Just about [E]love and tenderness if
[E] All we [F#sus]are, are [E]shooting s[F#sus]tars
[Bsus] And maybe we [F#sus] we can't fight
[Abm7] All of this [E]pain and loneliness if
[E] All we [F#sus]are, are [E] shooting [F#sus]stars
Verse 2:
C#sus Ebsus Esus F#sus*
Tired of hearin' 'bout the bling bling, We're so concerned with material things
C#sus Ebsus Esus F#sus*
It's all cars and diamond rings, And do you think it's gonna ease your sting
C#sus Ebsus Esus F#sus*
'Cause that's a hole that you can't fill, Velvet rope overkill
[C#sus] Free your mind let your [Ebsus]heart sing,[Esus] And just remember that they're [F#sus]only things
Repeat Chorus
[Abm7] I used to l[F#sus]ive by the minute
[E] I was too blind to s[F#sus]ee
[Abm7] Now I found the st[F#sus]rength to admit it
Now it's [E]all I believe, [F#sus]please please
Solo: (play chorus chords 1x)
Repeat Chorus
[Bsus] [F#sus] [Abm7] [E] Shooting s[Bsus]tars[F#sus] [Abm7]
[E]Yeah we're shooting s[Bsus]tars[F#sus] [Abm7]
[E] We're shooting s[Bsus]tars[F#sus] [Abm7]
(fade out)
