EASY VERSION CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Lego House Guitar Tutorial by Ed Sheeran! This song has been requested immensely and is one that has always just slipped my mind. It was one of Ed’s breakout hits and is a great song ballad. The song is comprised of fingerpicking throughout however in this video I teach 2 different versions.

Version 1 – Studio fingerpicked version (harder)
Version 2 – Easy strumed chords (requires capo)

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

[Verse]

G                     Em7
I'm gonna pick up the pieces,
                  G
and build a lego house
                             Em7      
when things go wrong we can knock it down
G                         Em7
  My three words have two meanings,
                        G
there's one thing on my mind
             Em7
It's all for you


[Prechorus]
G                                                            Em7 
And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got ya to keep me warm
G                                                                    Em7
and if you're broken I will mend ya I'll keep you sheltered from the storm
that's raging on


[Chorus]
G                            Em7
I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
                                     D
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
                                 Cadd9                 
and out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
G                              Em7
  I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
                          D
I'll do it all for you in time
                                 Cadd9                  
and out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now


[Verse 2]
G                      Em7
I'm gonna paint you by numbers
               G
and colour you in
                          Em7            
if things go right we can frame it, and put you on a wall

G                     Em7                            G  
  And it's so hard to say it but I've been here before
                         Em7
and I'll surrender up my heart
      
and swap it for yours


[Chorus]
G                            Em7
I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
                                     D
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
                                 Cadd9                 
and out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
G                              Em7
  I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
                          D
I'll do it all for you in time
                                 Cadd9                  
and out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now


[Bridge]
Em7     D         Cadd9
  Don't hold me down  
           D                            Cadd9               D
I think my braces are breaking and it's more than I can take


[Prechorus]
G                                                            Em7
And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got ya to keep me warm
G                                                                   Em7
and if you're broken I will mend ya and keep you sheltered from the storm
that's raging on


[Chorus]
G                            Em7
I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
                                     D
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
                                 Cadd9                 
and out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
G                              Em7
  I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
                          D
I'll do it all for you in time
                                 Cadd9                  
and out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
G                            Em7
I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
                                     D
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
                                 Cadd9                             G
and out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
