Spotlight - Patrick Stump

Tabbed by oh-nostalgia (Sarah).

------------------------------------------

This works for both versions of the song, except for the chorus. The one in this tab is for the
Oh Nostalgia version, but for New Regrets version, it's:

                                        F
'Cause you could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
          G           C
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)


And that progression repeats through the chorus.
The intro chords also have different timing in NR than in ON but it's not too hard to figure out,
and NR doesn't have the piano part or the outro.
Besides the above, this works for both songs!

I prefer to use bar chords but open chords work too.
Really simple and easy to play.
Feel free to redistribute, as long as you don't take the credit.
(This is my first tab/chords so I hope it works for you!)

Intro: Am-G-C

Verse:
F                                       Am
Every word's a new regret if you say it right, right
G                                   C                 F
Every wound can be forgotten in the right light
                      Am
Oh nostalgia, I don't need you anymore
           G                           C
'Cause the salad days are over and the meat is at my door

Pre-chorus:
     F                                           Am
They might try to tell you how you can live your life
                                  G
But don't, don't forget it's your right
                   C
To do whatever you like, you like, you like, you like

Chorus:
                                        F
'Cause you could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
                                 Am
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
Am
You could be your own spotlight
G                                                 C
You could be the star, you could shine so bright (a-yo, a-yo)
C
You could be your own spotlight

Verse:
Depression is a little bit like happy hour, right?
So, it's gotta be happening somewhere on any (any) given (given) night
Oh nostalgia, I don't need you anymore
I just hope, my perfect stranger, that my kids look more like yours

Pre-chorus:
'Cause they might try to tell you how you can live your life
But don't, don't forget it's your right
To do whatever you like, you like

Chorus:
'Cause you could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight
You could be the star, you can shine so bright (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You can be your own spotlight
You could be the star, you could shine so bright (a-yo, a-yo, a-yo, a-yo)

Bridge:
         C                   F                 C        
'Cause I had a little bit of bad luck (shine a light on me, shine a light on me)
G   C                    F                     C
Oh, under this crumbling world, stuck (shine a light on me, shine a light on me)
   G     C                    F                     C
A little sweetness keeps just out of reach (shine a light on me, shine a light on me)
G         C                              F                      C
'Cause compassion is something that they just don't, just don't teach, teach

Chorus:
'Cause you could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight
You could be the star, you can shine so bright (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own, be your own (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight (a-yo, a-yo)
You could be your own spotlight
You could be the star, you could shine so
Shine so, shine so, shine so
Spotlight, spotlight, spotlight, spotlight
Spotlight
You could be the star, you could shine so bright (Yeah)
You could be your own spotlight
