[Verse 1]

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

Salt air, and the rust on your door

Em Em

I never needed anything more

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

Whispers of "Are you sure?"

Em Em

"Never have I ever  before"



[Chorus]

D D

But I can see us lost in the memory

Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

August slipped away into a moment in time

A A

'Cause it was never mine

D D

And I can see us twisted in bedsheets

Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

August sipped away like a bottle of wine

A A

'Cause you were never mine



[Verse 2]

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

Your back beneath the sun

Em Em

Wishin' I could write my name on it

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

Will you call when you're back at school?

Em Em

I remember thinkin' I had you



[Chorus]

D D

But I can see us lost in the memory

Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

August slipped away into a moment in time

A A

'Cause it was never mine

D D

And I can see us twisted in bedsheets

Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

August sipped away like a bottle of wine

A A

'Cause you were never mine



D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em Em A A



[Bridge]

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7

Back when we were still changin' for the better

Em Em

Wanting was enough

A A

For me, it was enough

D D

To live for the hope of it all

Gmaj7 Gmaj7

Canceled plans just in case you'd call

Em Em

And say, "Meet me behind the mall"

A A

So much for summer love and saying "us"

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7

'Cause you weren't mine to lose

Em Em A A

You weren't mine to lose, oh



[Chorus]

D D

But I can see us lost in the memory

Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

August slipped away into a moment in time

A A

'Cause it was never mine

D D

And I can see us twisted in bedsheets

Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em7 Em7

August sipped away like a bottle of wine

A A

'Cause you were never mine



[Outro]

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7

'Cause you were never mine

Em Em

Never mine

A A

But do you remember?

D D

Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"

Gmaj7 Gmaj7

And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?

Em Em A A

Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all

D D

"Meet me behind the mall"

D D

(Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"

Gmaj7 Gmaj7

And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?

Em Em A A

Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all

D D

"Meet me behind the mall")

D D

Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"

Gmaj7 Gmaj7

And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?

Em Em A A

Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all (For the hope of it all)

D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7

For the hope of it all, for the hope of it all

Em Em A A D D Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Em Em A A (6x)

(For the hope of it all, for the hope of it all)

i think +3 sounds closer to the original key and the chords aren't too difficult
