[Verse 1]
G                            Gsus4       G   Gsus4
I never came to the beach, or stood by the ocean
Bm                 C               Bm                      C
I never sat by the shore, under the sun with my feet in the sand
                G              Gsus4     G
But you brought me here and I'm happy that you did
      Gsus4   G               Gsus4   G      Gsus4
'Cause now I'm as free as birds catching the wind
G                               Gsus4    G      Gsus4
I always thought I would sink, so  I  ne - ver swam
  Bm                        C
I never went boatin', don't get how they are floatin'
    Bm                 C                       Em      Am
And sometimes I get so scared of what I can't understand

           G Bm        Em  Am
But here I am,  next to you
           G       Bm    Em   Am
The sky is more blue  in Malibu
        G Bm    Em   Am
Next to you  in Malibu
        G Bm
Next to you

[Verse 2]
G                        Gsus4      G     Gsus4
We watched the sun go down as we were walking
G                            Gsus4   G          Gsus4
I'd spent the rest of my life standing here talking
G                               Gsus4      G   Gsus4
You would explain the current, as  I  just smiled
Bm                     C                     Bm
Hoping I just stay the same, and nothing will change
             C             G          Gsus4 G
And it'll be us, just for a while. Do we even  exist?
           Gsus4    G               Gsus4     G      Gsus4
That's when  I  make the wish, to swim away with the fish
   G                        Gsus4   G      Gsus4
Is it supposed to be this hot all summer long?
Bm                 C                        Bm
I never would've believed you if three years ago you told me
    C              Em       Am
I'd be here writing this song

           G Bm        Em  Am
But here I am,  next to you
           G     Bm    Em   Am
The sky is so blue  in Malibu
        G Bm    Em   Am
Next to you  in Malibu
        G Bm
Next to you

G Gsus4 G Gsus4
Bm C Bm C
Em Am G Bm
Em Am G Bm

        Em Am
Next to you
          G     Bm    Em   Am
The sky's so blue  in Malibu
        G Bm
Next to you

G                              Gsus4    G       Gsus4
We are just like the waves that flow back and forth
Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning
    Gsus4          G
And you're there to save me
                          Gsus4  G
And I wanna thank you with all of my heart
       Gsus4 G
It's a brand  new start
  Gsus4 G           Gsus4 G  Gsus4 G
A dream  come true in Ma  -  libu

I think the Em in the verse is a C, sounds best as a bar chord.
