on the ukulele. You're welcome! :)
Capo: None

[Verse 1]
Fmaj7
..Salt air,
Bbmaj7                 Gm
..and the rust on your door
               C
I never needed anything more
Fmaj7
..Whispers
Bbmaj7         Gm
..of "Are you sure?"
              C
"Never have I ever before"
 
[Chorus]
    Fmaj7
But I can see us lost in the memory
Bb                                    Gm
August slipped away into a moment in time
                     C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Bb                                   Gm
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                       C
'Cause you were never mine
 
[Verse 2]
Fmaj7
..Your back
Bbmaj7          Gm
..beneath the sun
                C
Wishin' I could write my name on it
Fmaj7
..Will you call
Bbaj7                    Gm
..when you're back at school?
           C
I remember thinkin' I had you
 
[Chorus]
    Fmaj7
But I can see us lost in the memory
Bb                                    Gm
August slipped away into a moment in time
                     C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Bb                                   Gm
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                       C
'Cause you were never mine

[Bridge]
Fmaj7                                      Bbmaj7
..Back when we were still changin' for the better
                Gm
Wanting was enough
                  C
For me, it was enough
                Fmaj7
To live for the hope of it all
                       Bbmaj7
Canceled plans just in case you'd call
                              Gm
And say, "Meet me behind the mall"
                     C
So much for summer love and saying "us"
                    F               Bb
'Cause you weren't mi....ne to lo...se
                    Gm
You weren't mine to lose
C
oh
 
 [Chorus]
    F
But I can see us lost in the memory
Bb                                    Gm
August slipped away into a moment in time
                     C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Bb                                   Gm
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                       C
'Cause you were never mine
 
[Outro]
Fmaj7                   Bbmaj7
...Cause you were never mine
       Gm
Never mine
C
..But do you remember?
         F
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         Bb
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Gm                                                     C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
                       F
"Meet me behind the ma..ll"
F
(Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         Bb
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Gm                                                     C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
 
"Meet me behind the mall")
         F
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         Bb
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Gm                                                     C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all (For the hope of it all)
                   F
For the hope of it all,
        Bb
for the hope of it all
         Gm
(For the hope of it all,
        C
for the hope of it all)
