                                 SHINE - Jason Mraz
                            http://youtu.be/IhlcZlarfPQ
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ The basic chord structure is D  C  Bm  Bb, but there are a lot of flourishes, this is
  really just a simplified version of the song. 

~ The timing on the (Bb to C) is pretty tough to get. The C is the last beat if you are 
  counting out to four: Bb Bb Bb C.  You can leave out the C if you would like.

~ The timing on the (G to A) in the bridge is the same as above. Suggestions on a replacement
  for the A are welcome since it's not quite right.  I've tried x00220 but it's still
  not perfect.


==INTRO==  (Bbm is played barred 677666)

Bbm  A  Bb C  D

D  C  Bm  (Bb  C)


==VERSE==
D
Once upon a time there was a meeting of minds
     C
The sun and the moon made a deal with the sky
Bm
One would take the morning and the other the night
Bb                                             C
Together they would blanket the world with light
        D
But the moon had a shadow, he felt like a liar
     C
The sun was the only one who carried the fire
     Bm
The sun saw this, she kept on glowing
(Bb                                        C)
Bowing to the moon, never saying, "you owe me"


==CHORUS==
               D
She said I'll shine on you (shine on you)
        C
I will shine on you (shine on you)
        Bm
I will shine on you (shine on you)
       (Bb           C)
I will shine on you

D  C  Bm  (Bb  C)


==VERSE==
       D
I keep lantern for you, glowing in my heart
              C
To keep from tripping over troublesome thoughts in the dark
              Bm
We ain't that different, we huddle underneath the same stars
(Bb                            C)
--- I see who you really are
             D
You're every creature, every man, every woman and child
              C
You're the closest thing I'll ever get to knowing God
         Bm
Like the sun to the moon, I'll send my love and light
 (Bb                                     C)
A love like ours, it'll fill the whole sky


==CHORUS==
       D
I will shine on you (shine on you)
       C 
I will shine on you (shine on you)
       Bm
I will shine on you (shine on you)
       (Bb           C)
I will shine on you
       D
I will shine on you (shine on you)
       C
I will shine on you (shine on you)
       Bm
I will shine on you (shine on you)
       Bb                  C   D
I will shine, shine, shine on you

D  D  D


==BRIDGE== 
(G                                         A)
Think of the people that you love the most
(Bb                                   C)
Send them your light and hold them close
           D                    C      
They will shine on you, I will shine on you
(G                                            A)
No matter the distance, the space, or the time
(Bb                                C)
Love travels in the speed of light
        D                     C
I will shine on you, I will shine on you
        Bm                   Bb
I will shine on you, I will shine on you


==VERSE==
     D
And if you forget we are the chosen ones
          C
Turn your eyes to the attention of the morning sun
Bm
Wherever you go, however you move
    (Bb                                C)
The light is gonna shine directly to you


==CHORUS==
        D
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
        C
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
        Bm
Let it shine on you (shine on you)
             (Bb              C)
Yes I'm gonna shine on you
        D
I will shine on you (shine on you)
        C
I will shine on you (shine on you)
        Bm
I will shine on you (shine on you)
        Bb                 C  D
I will shine, shine, shine on you

I actually struggled with this, but went with the Bm. You can actually watch him play the chords here: http://youtu.be/xxphzkQ4DeI?t=8m15s but I'm not sure what he's doing there.

And actually - the guitarist here is playing a Bm: http://youtu.be/IhlcZlarfPQ
