This song sounds magical when you play Dmaj7. I’ve conveniently marked when it is appropriate to use the Dmaj7 chord throughout the song 🙂

You can also use Gmaj7 which is 300032

[Verse 1]
Dmaj7
..Salt air,
G                      Em
..and the rust on your door
               A
I never needed anything more
Dmaj7
..Whispers
G              Em
..of "Are you sure?"
              A
"Never have I ever before"
 
[Chorus]
    Dmaj7
But I can see us lost in the memory
G                                     Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
                     A
'Cause it was never mine
    Dmaj7
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
G                                    Em
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                       A
'Cause you were never mine
 
[Verse 2]
Dmaj7
..Your back
G               Em
..beneath the sun
                A
Wishin' I could write my name on it
Dmaj7
..Will you call
G                        Em
..when you're back at school?
           A
I remember thinkin' I had you
 
[Chorus]
    Dmaj7
But I can see us lost in the memory
G                                     Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
                     A
'Cause it was never mine
    Dmaj7
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
G                                    Em
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                       A
'Cause you were never mine

[Bridge]
Dmaj7                                      G     
..Back when we were still changin' for the better
                Em
Wanting was enough
                  A
For me, it was enough
                Dmaj7
To live for the hope of it all
                       G     
Canceled plans just in case you'd call...
                              Em
And say, "Meet me behind the mall"
                     A
So much for summer love and saying "us"
                    D               G 
'Cause you weren't mi....ne to lo...se
                    Em
You weren't mine to lose
A
oh
 
 [Chorus]
    D
But I can see us lost in the memory
G                                     Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
                     A
'Cause it was never mine
    D
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
G                                    Em
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                       A
'Cause you were never mine
 
[Outro]
Dmaj7                   G     
...Cause you were never mine
       Em
Never mine
A
..But do you remember?
         D
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         G 
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Em                                                     A
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
                       D
"Meet me behind the ma..ll"
D
(Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         G 
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Em                                                     A
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
 
"Meet me behind the mall")
         D
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         G 
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Em                                                     A
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all (For the hope of it all)
                   D
For the hope of it all,
        G 
for the hope of it all
         Em
(For the hope of it all,
        A
for the hope of it all)
