Backwards Chords

   
Here's 'Backwards' by Christina Perri. Such a beautiful song.
The other tab for this song was slightly off, so here's the way I play it, I think 
it's more accurate.
Any questions/comments, you can email me at julia-music@live.ca.
Enjoy! :)

Capo: 4th

NOTE: For the intro and verses, play the chords as plucked arpeggios (start with 
the bass note, then play up three notes and then play back down). The only 
strummed parts are the chorus.


Dm - Am - E - Am
 
 [VERSE 1:]
Dm
Take me backwards
Am             E
Turn me around
                 Am
I cannot find my balance on the ground
    F
This world is too heavy
       G                    Am
For a feather falling quickly


Dm                    Am
And I wrote you a story
         E                Am
But I'm afraid of how it ends
           F                  G
And all my friends are doing well
                      Am
And I'm still on the mend


 [CHORUS:]
C                        G
I'm going to lay back down 
                            F
Hope the wind takes me around
                    E
I gotta find some courage in this town
C                        G
Cause nobody's going to save
                        F
Somebody who won't change
              E
I tried to be brave

 [VERSE 2:] 
Dm                   Am
And nothing's coming easy
            E                   Am
And all at once I feel a little queasy
                F
Oh but if your love's my remedy
           G                      Am
Won't you please come and be with me


Dm                         Am
It's not like there's much better
          E                    Am
Nobody's grass is as green as mine
                     F
I can't say that I'm satisfied
                G                    Am
Three thousand miles from your kiss goodbye
 

 [CHORUS:] 
C                      G
I'm going to lay back down
                        F
Hope the wind takes me around
                   E
I gotta find some courage in this town

 [BRIDGE:]
Dm              C
And everybody's afraid
        Am               F
Cause chances come from change
(no chords)         C
And everybody's afraid
         Am              F
Cause chances come from breaking
     Am                 F       E
And chances are you're breaking open
 
 [CHORUS:]
C                     G
I'm going to lay back down
                       F
Hope the wind takes me around
                  E
I gotta find some courage in this town
C                       G
Cause nobody's going to save
                   F
Somebody who won't change
                E
It's time to be brave

Dm - Am - E - Am
