This is one of my favorite Beach House songs. It took me quite a while to get 
used to the album version because it sounds more optimistic than the single 
version, and I like sad songs better. But both versions are awesome, and the 
chords don't differ from each other that much. This is a very simple song, 
but it wasn't easy figuring out those hidden chords in the third and fourth 
verses. Enjoy some happy sadness...

USED TO BE (single version)
by Beach House

Intro D

        A
You are coming home
Are you still alone
        G                   D
Are you not the same as you used to be?


       A
As the sun grows high
And you served your time
          G                  D
Does each day just feel like another lie?


Em
Now you know
Is it just for show
       Bm                    F#m
Just a foolish game that you hide behind


         Em
Don't forget the nights
        G
When it all felt right
        Bm                  Em
Are you not the same as you used to be
          D
Used to be?


     A
In a endless night
Did you feel the fright
       G                     D
Of an age that was and could never be


      A
So we hold it close
When we feel the most
       G                      D
Like a love that we could not leave behind


Em
We turn the wheel
To which way we feel
         Bm                 F#m
Till I'm lost and I can not find you there


         Em                 
Don't forget the nights
        G
when it all felt right
        Bm                  Em
Are you not the same as you used to be?
         D
Used to be


          G
Even if I try so hard
                  D
Would we still be coming to an end
           A
Even if we spoke the same words
                  G
Would we still be termed as friends?

            G
Even if its simple from the start
                 D
We will give the pieces of our hearts
                  A
And when there is nothing left to pretend
                 G
We will know its coming to an end

G
We could wait until the summer
D
See what happeneds to each other
A
We could wait inside all summer
G
See what happeneds to each other

D
