Up by Jason Mraz

tabbed by ieremv

My first tab! I believe it should be pretty accurate, I studied the videos below 
and experimented a lot to make sure I got the exact sound. It's not a very 
difficult song, tbh, but Jason Mraz's chord progressions are genius. Tell me what 
you think in the comments!

BM7 D#m7 G#m7 GM7-F#7

                   BM7
A little like Gene Wilder now
                 D#m7
Coming out of the tower now 
     G#m7
In a glass elevator 

that could take you all the way 
       GM7  F#7
to the sky 

                BM7
Ain't trying to fool ya now 
                D#m7
I got nothing to lose and no how 
      G#m7                                           GM7                           F#7
So be in it with the limitless image of the intimate figure that you're getting is love 

C#m7                F#
    All you need is love 


                     BM7
Ain't it nice to get out of here 
                   D#m7
Already out of the atmosphere 
            G#m7
Well if the glass ever shattered 

well it wouldn't really matter 
       GM7                     F#7
it's a love that is lifting us up 

C#m7                F#
    All you need is love 


            BM7
We're going up, up, up
        D#m7
Flying away
                 G#7 
We're taking the higher route
                 GM7         AM7
We're taking the ceiling out

            G#m7 
We're going up, 
              D#m7
we're flying away
      C#m7
Never coming down 
              GM7           F#7
because we're living it up, living it up, yeah 


BM7 D#m7 G#m7 GM7-F#7

                       BM7
What happens when your light goes out
                           D#m7
No one’s there to give you mouth to mouth
              G#m7
Don't let the break down trouble you 
                                  GM7      F#7
and claim that a brother need's a hero now

        BM7                                        D#m7
Cause I know, you know, baby once you know, you'll always know
          G#m7                                       GM7            
It's your own, your own, your own love that gets you where you wanna go 


            BM7
We're going up, up, up
        D#m7
Flying away
                 G#7 
We're taking the higher route
                 GM7         AM7
We're taking the ceiling out

            G#m7 
We're going up, 
              D#m7
we're flying away
      C#m7
Never coming down 
              GM7           F#7
because we're living it up, living it up
            GM7           F#7
yeah you’re living it up 


             B
Knowing it's good
                 Em
And I don't mean good enough
                  D#m7
When it's really love
                  Em7          G#m7 
Well you can just rise above anything 
          GM7
it's our destiny

    GM7
Yeah
        C#m7
Oh-oh-oh
        Em7
Oh-oh-oh
      A7      BM7
Oh-oh-ah, ah, ah
Em7      A7     BM7
La-ah-ah-ah, ah, ah


                   BM7
A little like Gene Wilder now
                 D#m7
Coming out of the tower now 
     G#m7
In a glass elevator 

that could take you all the way

to the sky

hey guys, for some reason my big 'M's for the major chords e.g. BM7, GM7, and AM7 became small 'm's. please note, they are MAJOR 7 chords, don't follow the mouseover chord shapes!

it's taking awhile to update.
