It's written in the wrong key, the song goes in Ab.

oskaremil97:
You have a point. While some sheet music has it in A major, most of it has it in A flat minor. I am looking into this. Thank you for your comment.

oskaremil97:Here's what I found. It is said the song starts in a minor key, goes to a major key, then back to a minor key. The Verse is consistent with the key of F sharp minor which is the equivalent of A flat major. The Chorus is consistent with the key of A major. "A feature which is a fairly frequent characteristic of her formal songwriting structure is to begin a song in a minor key and then find her way into a sunnier, major region before returning again to minor. This method can be heard in such songs as 'It's Too Late', 'I Feel the Earth Move', 'You've Got a Friend', and 'Beautiful'." The chorus I have is heavy on the note of A suggesting the key is A and it's the major scale. The verse has a number of F sharps in it perhaps suggesting a minor key.
