   Anyone familiar with Julia Nunes and her work will know that one of her most
used instruments is the Ukulele. This particular album features both Ukulele and
Acoustic Guitar pieces. Here I will clear up how to mimic the Ukulele sound on
an acoustic or classical Guitar, for anyone without a Ukulele instrument.

The best way to immitate the sound of a Ukulele on an acoustic or classical Guitar
is to place a Capo on the 5th fret. You now have a Ukulele! This works because,
much like the Guitar standard tuning is EADGBe, the Ukulele standard tuning is
GCEA, as there are only four strings. Now by playing just the highest four strings
(the original xxDGBe strings on the Guitar) this is the easiest and closest way to
mimic the sound of a standard tuned Ukulele.

This not only means that you have an impromptu Ukulele, but you can now finger
the chords identically as you would if you were actually playing a Ukulele. In this
online guide, I will show the Ukulele fingerings for each chord used, taking into
consideration the Capo on the 5th fret. If you have a Ukulele, feel free to follow
along with the same fingerings, only ignore the Guitar Capo. With that said, enjoy
this little online guide.

           C         Cmaj9  Am           G
  You see I've given up on begging and pleading
           C            Cmaj9        Am       G
  Every scratch on this guitar is because of you

 INTRO:
B


 VERSE 1:
   E              F#m     A        B
  Difference of opinions keep us apart
        E        F#m       A         B
  But that won't take you out of my heart
      E                F#m           A                 B
  I think that you're funny, and I think that you're smart
          E              F#m            A            B
  And I think it's even cuter when you say that you aren't


 TRANSITION 1:
E - F#m - A - B (x2)


 VERSE 2:
E   F#m        A        B
  I saw you across the room
      E            F#m        A       B
  We never really spoke but still I knew
      E        F#m      A        B
  That you and me were meant to be
E          F#m    A      B
  Close if not romantically


 TRANSITION 2:
E - F#m - A - B (x2)


 CHORUS 1:
C#m             Aadd9       E5           Emaj9
  And I've tried hard, to prove that I am strong
C#m         Aadd9        E5              Emaj9
  But you know, and I know, that I've been wrong
          C#m
  And we talked for a while with our opposite styles
         Aadd9
  And I thought it might work if only for a while
     E5
  Together we make such uncomfortable sounds
      Emaj9
  You open your mouth and I'm laughing so loud
C#m                      Aadd9
  See I can talk forever
  N/C
  Except when it counts...


 TRANSITION 3:
E - F#m - A - B (x2)


 VERSE 3:
E           F#m        A   B
  We don't write notes anymore
        E       F#m                A            B
  But that's alright, I've gone through this before
        E          F#m        A         B
  It's been three weeks since we have spoken
     E        F#m      A            B
  And look at me - my heart's not broken


 TRANSITION 4:
E - F#m - A - B (x2)

C#m            Aadd9                     E5            Emaj9
  And it's not fair to blame this all on you
                     C#m        Aadd9               E5            Emaj9
  'Cause we all got reasons for doing the things we do
C#m                        Aadd9   N/C
  But I gotta tell you, I'm not... amused

  I left you in the dirt behind me
E        F#m          A       B       (E)
  You'd do the same thing if you were me

 VERSE 1:
          G                          Em
  If you were the ground beneath my feet
                    Cadd9                     A7
  I'd find a way to float, or just walk so gently
          G                        Em
  If you were a star in the night sky
                        Cadd9                           A7
  I'd figure out how to fly, or just walk with my head high


 CHORUS 1:
        G          D              Cadd9
  They pushed me around, but they haven't knocked me down
    G      D           Cadd9
  Flowers die, so I'll plant a pot inside
   G       D       Cadd9
  Babies grow, and buy their own homes
      G         D                Cadd9
  To fill with families of their own


 VERSE 2:
          G                               Em
  If you were the clouds that bring the shadows
                         Cadd9            A7
  The dark won't make me sad, though I'd miss you
           G                         Em
  I'll make shadow puppets and I'll laugh
                              Cadd9                 A7
  Because I know you'd love it, and I'll cry a little too


 VERSE 3:
     G                   Em
  If I were God, I'd destroy all religion
    Cadd9                     A7
  Abolish all divisions, and leave the world with love
            G               Em
  And I'd probably take you up with me
                Cadd9          A7
  Because we're selfish here above


 CHORUS 2:
              G          D              Cadd9
  Yeah, they pushed me around, but they haven't knocked me down
    G      D           Cadd9
  Flowers die, so I'll plant a pot inside
   G       D       Cadd9
  Babies grow, and buy their own homes
      G         D                Cadd9
  To fill with families of their own


 BRIDGE:
   G                           Em
  We've lost a lot, but we've got much more
         Cadd9                         A7
  And if you need comfort, that's what we're here for
               G                            Em
  And if the ground shall crumble, and the stars shall fall
         Cadd9                      A7
  I will hold your hand, and we'll both stand tall


 CHORUS 3:
        G          D              Cadd9
  They pushed me around, but they haven't knocked me down
    G      D           Cadd9
  Flowers die, so I'll plant a pot inside
   G       D       Cadd9

 VERSE 1:
             C                                    Cmaj7
  Well, I'm lying here on the floor just like the man on the yellow cone
     C7                             F
  I guess the floor was wet so I'm cold and I'm all alone
              C                                 Cmaj7
  'Cause I was running down the stairs I didn't think that I could fall
        C7                          F
  But gravity took over me, and I crumpled like a ball


 CHORUS 1:
          C                C/A#         F       F7
  But if you would pick me up I'd be obliged

  Dust me off and push my hair aside

  Well, it's later than I thought - and I thought it was pretty late
          C7                         F
  I guess everyone's asleep; wonder why I'm still awake?
           C                             Cmaj7
  I could fall asleep right here with my hands under my head
             C7                              F
  There's a body in the stairwell, call the cops; I think she's dead

  Well, I can't lie - perhaps I didn't trip
             C7                         F
  I've been having troubles lately, and I got something to admit
            C                         Cmaj7
  See, I was standing at the top thinking about the Earth
                C7                              F     N/C
  It's been so hard to just keep living, so I thought it might be worth it if...

 VERSE 1:

  It'd be easy to sit here and wallow in hell
              B7                Em
  Or I could suck it up and get over myself
           C                          Em9
  You see all hearts are broken; it's no big deal
             B7                         Em
  I've been hurt, but I'm sure you all know how that feels

  This year will swallow me whole - it's taking its toll
                2                  3                  4      5

1     2    3    4
  So tenderly
   5            1       2       3
  You bleed me dry, and I
4       5            (Em)
  I collapse to the floor


 CHORUS 1:
Em               Em9 C  Em   Em9
  It doesn't get easier
    C            Em
  That should be me
Em               Em9 C  Em
  It doesn't get easier
                C      Em9
  I'm dying to leave


 VERSE 3:
             C                    Em9
  I've been feeling surprisingly lonely these days
           B7                 Em
  I guess substitutes have an aftertaste
         C            Em9                   B7            Em
  And I hate you for making me feel I could easily be replaced


 VERSE 4:
        C                         Em9
  They say that the coffin can't confine the soul
       B7              Em
  I'm burying secrets you should have told
           C                              Em9
  So I'll say, "Fuck your heaven, this is only a goal"
       B7                  Em
  You want to achieve, so you can be whole


 BRIDGE:
         C             Em9        B7        Em
  We've yelled, we've lied, and blatantly tried
              C                   Em9            B7                 Em
  To hurt the other one, that's not fair - but truthfully, I don't care
        C         Em9                B7             Em
  You cried and apologized, I won't sympathize with you
                  C         Em9             B7         Em
  'Cause you're wrong, so wrong - and you know it, you do


 INTERLUDE:
C - Em9 - B7 - Em (x2)


 CHORUS 2:
Em               Em9 C  Em   Em9
  It doesn't get easier
   C            Em
  Try not to scream
Em               Em9 C  Em   Em9
  It doesn't get easier
              C      Em9
  I'm fighting day dreams


 VERSE 5:
        C                      Em9
  So I guess it's over, is it time to move on?
    B7                  Em
  Winter was always my least favorite season
    C                          Em9
  Should I give up? Is it too late to be saved?
          B7              Em
  Am I forever frozen in this lonely grave?


 OUTRO:
     C                    Em9
  So if I agree, I'm not trying to be mean
             B7         Em
  It's just cold, hard facts
                 C           Em9
  Spare me your sugar coats
                         B7          Em
  I could have kept you warmer than that...

A - Bm11 - E7sus4 - E5 (x2)


 VERSE 1:
      A               Bm11           E7sus4              E5
  My ear can't hold a pencil, and my mind can't keep a thought
          A                Bm11            E7sus4           E5
  And my arms aren't near strong enough to hold the shit I got
        A           Bm11                E7sus4                E5
  But stop feeling sorry for me, that's great - you got your sanity
         A          Bm11     E7sus4    E5
  But apologies are not what I need


 CHORUS 1:
             A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  I'm going out
             A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  I'm going out
             A    Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  To get my mind off you
                    A     Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  And I'll have a drink or two


 VERSE 2:
      A                 Bm11                E7sus4           E5
  I know this might be rough on you - don't worry, I've been in your shoes
        A            Bm11                E7sus4              E5
  We've only got a friend to lose - this sucks, I think you know it too
         A                      Bm11              E7sus4       E5
  The thrill of the chase caught up with me, they paid me back karmically
            A                       Bm11           E7sus4                E5
  Either I can't stand them or they don't want me; what do you think it means?


 CHORUS 2:
             A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  I'm going out
             A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  I'm going out
             A    Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  To get my mind off you
                    A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  And I'll have a drink or two


 BRIDGE:
    A*            Asus4          E7sus4             E5
  Cross my heart, cross my eyes, cross my fingers; hope to die
   A*               Asus4
  Bury me with the friends I've lost
E7sus4           E5                 A    E    D    D9    Em7
  They say that pain is the cost of... love
    A              E                  D      D9    Em7
  Of love (No-one said this would be easy)


 VERSE 3:
      A             Bm11             E7sus4          E5
  I knew it had to happen soon, just sucks it had to be with you
       A                Bm11            E7sus4                      E5
  The songs that I once sang for you, I still sing them though the meaning's new
A                     Bm11                   E7sus4                E5
  Roles reversed and then press play, can't think of any thing to say
     A          Bm11     E7sus4      E5
  But how many times can one heart break?


 CHORUS 3:
             A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  I'm going out
             A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  I'm going out
             A    Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  To get my mind off you
                    A      Bm11     E7sus4     E5
  And I'll have a drink or two


 OUTRO:
    A*                Asus4             E7sus4            E5 
  I used these chords once before, an unfinished love song
             A*         Asus4         E7sus4         E5 
  'Cause I adored a boy
               A*
  But not any more...

 VERSE 1:
           A                                     D
  Well, I bet you thought that I forgot about our deal
              A
  But I am a man of my words, though they be strange and absurd
            D
  I'm just trying to keep it real
          A
  And I know I lost the bet, but I haven't lost you yet
           D
  And if drinking lemonade for the rest of our days


 CHORUS 1:
         G                    E          N/C
  Would save you, you know I would do... it


 TRANSITION 1:
A - D (x2)


 VERSE 2:
             A
  Remember Regina and Sarah and cereal bowls?
       D
  And wearing our hats, even when it's not cold?
            D
  I'm just trying to keep it real
        A
  I'll never relate to your city peeps
            D
  'Cause I do most of my thuggin' on suburban streets


 CHORUS 1:
         G                  E      N/C            A
  I get terrified, but I'm fine... when I'm with you


 TRANSITION 2:
A - D (x2)


 BRIDGE:
               G                           D
  You should know that I love it when you sing
           G                               D
  But I'd love it even more if you'd stop hitting things
     G                D                A
  Regardless, I'd be heartless... without you


 TRANSITION 3:
A - D (x2)


 VERSE 3:
           A
  Well, I haven't yelled at someone in a pretty long time
           D
  And the last time that I did, I regretted it
 A                                    D
  I can't wait 'til senior year, when I will live in constant fear
          A
  'Cause you'll act like a zombie, and slobber all on me
        D
  You know that I hate it, but I wouldn't trade it


 CHORUS 3:
      G            E            A
  For any asshole you don't... like


 OUTRO:
                 D
  Yeah, you're stuck with me
           G          E     A
  For the rest of our afterlives

If you have any questions regarding anything in this guide, feel free to message
me over here on Ultimate Guitar. I'll try and respond as quickly as possible, and
I'm more than happy to help out if I can. Any corrections may also be messaged to
me, but I have done my best to double-check (and triple-check) everything in here.
But, there's often that pesky little mistake that seems to stick out like a sore
thumb to everyone else, although I never noticed inputting the data wrongly.

Lastly, the content here is as correct as I can get it. I've tabbed this out in
the manner which Julia performs it; if you prefer to perform it different then
that is absolutely fine. However, 100% accuracy cannot ever be ensured, but a good
90% of the content in here certainly is.

Thanks for reading guys, I hope this proves useful guys!

Thanks for the feedback Jordan, but I watched her play live on the video and one could see that her fingers were near the 5th fret area and not the 2nd. Check out the vid on YouTube and give me a reply.

HI DJman09, I sent you a reply regaridng your comment on your profile page -- I'm unsure what you refer to for the comment, "one could see that her fingers were near the 5th fret area and not the 2nd"? Please elaborate, many thanks. :)
