Malibu    (video)

 

    G - C      - G - C

 

   G                                                 C                G         - C

1. I never came to the beach, or stood by the ocean,

   Bm                            C                      Bm                                C

    I never sat by the shore, under the sun with my feet in the sand.

                                      G                   C                      G

    But you brought me here, and I'm happy that you did,

                 C               G                   C                 G      - C

    'cause now I'm as free as birds catching the wind.

   G                                                  C               G     - C

    I always thought I would sink, so I never swam,

       Bm                                         C

    I never went boatin', don't get how they are floatin',

            Bm                            C                                        Em   - Am

    and sometimes I get so scared of what I can't understand.

 

                  G   - Bm             Em    - Am

But here I am,          next to you,

                   G           - Bm            Em   - Am

the sky is more blue          in Malibu.

              G   -  Bm            Em  - Am               G    - Bm

Next to you            in Malibu,           next to you.

 

     G                                             C                  G           - C

2. We watched the sun go down as we were walking,

     G                                          C                  G          - C

    I'd spent the rest of my life standing here talking.

      G                                                 C             G    - C

    You would explain the current, as I try to smile,

     Bm                             C                                   Bm

    hoping I just stay the same, and nothing will change.

                      C                      G               C         G

    And it'll be us, just for a while. Do we even  exist ?

                       C                G                       C                 G    - C

    that's when I make the wish, to swim away with the fish.

        G                                       C                G        - C

    Is it supposed to be this hot all summer long ?

   Bm                            C                                    Bm

    I never would've believed you if three years ago you told me

                C                      Em     - Am

    I'd be here writing this song.

 

                  G   - Bm             Em    - Am

But here I am,          next to you,

                   G           - Bm            Em   - Am

the sky is more blue          in Malibu.

              G   -  Bm            Em  - Am               G    - Bm

Next to you            in Malibu,           next to you.

 

+  G - C - G - C        - Bm - C - Bm - C

 

+  Em - Am - G - C        - Em - Am - G - Bm

 

                 Em   - Am                        G   - Bm             Em - Am

+  Next to you            the sky's so blue           in Malibu,

                  G      - Bm

    next to you.

 

     G                                                C                    G       - C

3. We are just like the waves that flow back and forth,

      G                                      C                                           G

    sometimes I feel like I'm drowning, and you're there to save me,

                            C                                    G

    And I wanna thank you with all of my heart.

                C               G

    It's a brand  new start,

           C                 G         C   G      - C -  G

    a dream  come true in Malibu.
