Hey guys, this is Empire by Shakira.
I am obSESSED with this song. It's literally perfect. I love Shakira. Anyway, here are 
the chords. The other chords on the site have got the general idea but there are wrong 
chords in the bridge and at various other places. Pretty sure this is correct. Enjoy!

Standard Tuning.
Capo: 1 (If you don't have a capo, transpose this tab UP by 1)

You can try using an Em chord in place of the G. It's not the chord in the song, but it sounds good - gives it a different sound ;)


Verse:
B          G 
Take off all of your skin
    A
I'm brave when you are free
B          G
Shake off all of your sins
    A
And give them to me
B       G
Closer, let me back in
  A                               B     G    A
I wanna be yours, wanna be your hero
                  E
And my heart beats


Chorus:
         B              G              A
Like the empires of the world unite
         B        G
We are alive
        A
And the stars make love to the universe
          B               G            A
You're my wild fire every single night
         B       G
We are alive
        A
And the stars make love to the universe
        E
And you touch me
    E 
//(keep building up the strumming)
And I'm like, and I'm like, AND I'M LIKE!

B      G                   A
I will follow you down wherever you go
B    G                 A
I am baby I'm bound to you and do you know?
B       G
Closer, pull me in tight
  A                               B    G   A
I wanna be yours, wanna be your hero
                    E
And my heart beats

You're my wild fire every single night
         B       G
We are alive
        A
And the stars make love to the universe
        E
And you touch me
    E

         B        G
We are alive
        A
And the stars make love to the universe
          B               G            A
You're my wild fire every single night
         B       G
We are alive

Oh, god! Of course it is. I don't know why I typed out D. I've always been playing a G. Sorry, my bad!
