Capo 2

Intro: G Dsus4 Em7 Cadd9


G
Give me your heart to hold the God-like truth,
            Dsus4
Give me one good soul I can tell it through
Em7
Give me good reason to believe in you
            Cadd9
And give me strength if you have time

G
Give me two hands that'll hold this up
              Dsus4
And don't you give me no more than just enough
            Em7
You gave a pair of brown eyes that can call a good bluff
     Cadd9
And somebody who thinks they shine

    Dsus4  Em7       Cadd9 Dsus4
But you, I just want you
 Em7        Cadd9     G
I just want you

  G
I spend most of my life on a microphone
       Dsus4
Giving all that I’ve got until I head back home
             Em7
And when the lights go out, and I’m all alone,
    Cadd9
Got no reason to be crying

         G
But on a bad day I feel like a masochist
        Dsus4
Take it away from me, if it's for the best
 Em7
Somehow I ended up the head of this
   Cadd9
Freight train that isn't mine

    Dsus4 Em7        Cadd9
But you, I just want you
Dsus4  Em7       Cadd9
You, I just want you

          G
So take it all away
           Dsus4
If it isn't meant for me
             Em7
I don't want the easy way
  Cadd9
I just want you
             G
They can give me everything
          Dsus4
But at the end of the day
         Em7
The only words I’ll say
      Cadd9
Is 'I just want you'

G Dsus4 Em7

Cadd9
I just want you


   G
It’s all so simple when I break it all down
   Dsus4
Two roads converged on a hallow ground
          Em7
It’s taken all my life to hear the sacred sound
   Cadd9
Of sweet simplicity
       G
Saying 'give it all back, you don't mean a thing'
          Dsus4
You got a short-lived life and a song to sing
      Em7
And the only way up is believing
    Cadd9
In never looking down

          G
So take it all away
           Dsus4
If it isn't meant for me
             Em7
I don't want the easy way
  Cadd9
I just want you
             G
They can give me everything
          Dsus4
But at the end of the day
         Em7
The only words I’ll say
      Cadd9
Is 'I just want you'


G  Dsus4 Em7
Oh,

Cadd9
I just want you

G  Dsus4 Em7 Cadd9
Oh

This is very helpful!! Thank you so much! :) I did notice while listening that instead of the Dsus4, it sounds like she plays a Dsus4 but without holding down the third fret B string? So just like a Dsus4 except with only the A and e being played. Is that a chord? I'm not sure but it sounds right! xD Thanks again!!

Can someone give me a hand with the strumming pattern please. No matter what I think it is, I always get it wrong :(

I do D DU UDU UDU UDU for everything until the pre-chorus. There, I use D Du UDU for Em7 and Cadd9.
