Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week’s song is fairly recent but was by request – Adam Levine – Lost Stars guitar tutorial from the Begin Again movie soundtrack. A really beautiful song to play on acoustic guitar with no barre chords! For #loststars you won’t need a capo and you’ll need to know 6 guitar chord shapes.

Stick around till the end where I’ll do a full song playthrough of #loststars by #adamlevine of #maroon5

Enjoy! Like this #loststars video by #adamlevine and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Verse]

Fmaj7
Please don't see just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Fmaj7
Please see me reaching out for someone I can see
         Em                              Fmaj7
Take my hand let's see where we wake up tomorrow
           Em                                   Fmaj7
Best laid plans sometimes it's just a one night stand
         Em                              Fmaj7
I'd be damned Cupid's demanding back his arrow
               G            G
So let's get drunk on our tears and


[Chorus]

Fmaj7              C                           Fmaj7
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
               C                             Fmaj7
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
                Em
Searching for meaning
            D                         Dm            G
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?


[Verse]

Fmaj7
Who are we? Just a spec of dust within the galaxy
Fmaj7
Woe is me if we're not careful turns into reality
           Em                                   Fmaj7
Don't you dare let all these memories bring you sorrow
   Em                         Fmaj7
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
          Em                               Fmaj7
Turn the page maybe we'll find a brand new ending
               G             G
Where we're dancing in our tears and


[Chorus]

Fmaj7              C                           Fmaj7
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
               C                             Fmaj7
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
                Em
Searching for meaning
            D                         Dm            G
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?


[Bridge 1]

Fmaj7                           C
I thought I saw you out there crying
Fmaj7                          C
I thought I heard you call my name
Fmaj7                          Em
I thought I saw you out there crying
          G
Just the same


[Chorus]

Fmaj7              C                           Fmaj7
God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
               C                             Fmaj7
It's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
                Em
Searching for meaning
            D                         Dm            G
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?


[Bridge 2]

Fmaj7                           C
I thought I saw you out there crying
Fmaj7                          C
I thought I heard you call my name
Fmaj7                          Em
I thought I saw you out there crying


[Outro]
            D                         Dm            G
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?
            D                         Dm           G    C
But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?
