Jason plays this song two different ways:

     ● No capo = http://youtu.be/7CO3llnp9kI
     ● Capo 5  = http://youtu.be/rnEMgBca954

I've tried to simplify it some for the average player (like myself.) You can simplify it even
more and just use Bm, A, G, Em and F#m.

==INTRO==
Bm   A6   Gmaj7  Em7  F#m  (x2)


==VERSE==
Bm                                A6
We are magic, he said, but don't let it all go to your head
         GMaj7                                        Em7              F#m
'cause I bet if you had it all figured out then you'd never get out of bed
         Bm                                              A6
Well, no doubt of all the things that I've read what he wrote me
                                   GMaj7
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping to be
                       Em7                        F#m            Em7
I keep on keeping it real 'cause it keeps getting easier, you'll see


==REFRAIN==
Em7                        A                      Bm  A   G
He's the reason that I'm laughing even if there's no one else
Em                     A       Bm   A6   GMaj7   Em7  F#m
He said you've got to love yourself


==VERSE==
                      Bm                                      A6
He said you shouldn't mumble when you speak, but keep your tongue up in your cheek
            GMaj7                                             Em7             F#m
And if you stumble on to something better remember that it's humble that you seek
        Bm                             A6
You got all the skill you need, individuality
           GMaj7                              Em7        F#m
You got something call it gumption, call it anything you want


==REFRAIN==
              Em7          A                      Bm       A      G
Because when you play the fool now, you're only fooling everyone else
Em7                 A      Bm    A6    GMaj7   Em7  F#m
You're learning to love yourself  (yes you are)


==CHORUS==
    Bm    A6    GMaj7   Em7  F#m
Yes you, you, you


==BRIDGE==
Em                  A
There's no price to pay
Em                         A
When you give it what you take
Em                        A
That's why it's easy to thank... 


==CHORUS==
Bm    A6    GMaj7    Em7  F#m
you, you, you
Bm    A6    GMaj7    Em7  F#m
you, you, you


==VERSE==
Bm                                            A6
Let's say take a break from a day of gettin' back to the old garage
         GMaj87                                      Em7         F#m
Because life's too short anyway, but at least it's better than average
            Bm                                          A6
As long as you got me and I got you, you know we got a lot to go around
               GMaj7                              Em7               F#m               
I'll be your friend, your other brother, another love to come and comfort you


==REFRAIN==
Em7                A                    Bm       A     G
And I'll keep reminding, if it's the only thing I ever do
Em              A   Bm    A6   GMaj7   Em7  F#m
I will always love you


==CHORUS==
Bm    A6   GMaj7  Em7  F#m
you, you, you
Bm    A6   GMaj7  Em7  F#m
ooooohhhhh you
Bm    A6   GMaj7  Em7  F#m
It's true, our love is true
Bm    A6   GMaj7  Em7  F#m
It's you I love, it's you I love, it's you, it's you I love
Bm    A6   GMaj7  Em7  F#m
It's true, our love is true, our love is true, it's you I love
Bm    A6   GMaj7  Em7  F#m
It's you I love, it's you I love, it's you, it's you I love


==OUTRO (x3)==
Bm                       A6
Climb up over the top, survey the state of the soul
               GMaj7                  Em7                  F#m
You've got to find out for yourself whether or not you're truly trying
Bm                       A6
Why not give it a shot? Shake it, take control
            GMaj7                                Em7                      F#m
Inevitably wind up finding for yourself all the strengths that you have inside still rising


==One Strum each==
Bm                       A6
Climb up over the top, survey the state of the soul
               GMaj7                  Em7                  F#m
You've got to find out for yourself whether or not you're truly trying
Bm                       A6
Why not give it a shot? Shake it, take control
            GMaj7                                 Em7              F#m            Bm
Inevitably wind up finding for yourself all the strengths that you have inside of you
