[Verse 1]
Em
If you be my star
C
I'll be your sky
Em                              C
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
Em                              C
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
Em        D    C
I live to let you shine
Em        D    C
I live to let you shine
 
[Chorus 1]
F#           G           Cadd9
but you can skyrocket away from me
F#           G           Cadd9
and never come back if you find another galaxy
F#           G           Cadd9
far from here with more room to fly
F#           G           Cadd9
just leave me your stardust to remember you by

[Verse 2]
Em
if you be my boat
C
I'll be your sea
Em                    C
a depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
Em                    C
ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
Em      D         C
I live to make you free
Em      D        C
I live to make you free

[Chorus 2]
F#               G             Cadd9
but you can set sail to the west if you want to
F#               G             Cadd9
and past the horizon till I can't even see you
F#               G             Cadd9
far from here where the beaches are wide
F#               G             Cadd9
just leave me your wake to remember you by

[Instrumental]
D   C   G   C (x3)


[Verse 3]
Em
If you be my star
C
I'll be your sky
Em                              C
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
Em                              C
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
Em        D    C
I live to let you shine
Em        D    C
I live to let you shine

[Chorus 3]
F#           G           Cadd9
but you can skyrocket away from me
F#           G           Cadd9
and never come back if you find another galaxy
F#           G           Cadd9
far from here with more room to fly
F#           G           Cadd9
just leave me your stardust to remember you by

End on Em.

I've changed it up a bit since I posted this vid. It's the Eb chord for the first verse,
A------1---------1---------1---------1---------
E---------3---------3---------3----------3------
C------------------------3---------3--------------
G---0--------0-----------------------------------

which can also be played
A-------1-----------1----------1-----------1---------
E----3-----3---3------3-----------3------------3------
C----------------------------3-----------3--------------
G-----------------------------------------------

which might be easier because then on the lyrics "I live to let you shine" it changes to
A-------1-----------1----------1-----------1---------
E----3-----3---1------1-----------3------------3------
C----------------------------3-----------3--------------
G-----------------------------------------------

For the chorus, slide down the neck to
A-------8-----------8----------8-----------8---------
E-----------6-----------6------------6----------6------
C-----------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------

the outro [on the last lyrics, 'star dust to remember you by'] is
A--------------8------------8-------------------------------------8
E--------------------6-----------6-----------6------------------6
C---------------------------------------------------------------0
G--------------------------------------------------0----------0

'to remember you by'... I hope when I press 'reply' this spacing doesn't go wonky... hope that helps!! :)
