Welcome to this Rewrite The Stars Guitar Tutorial from the Greatest Showman Movie Soundtrack!
I’m a little late on this one, but better late than never! It was only after I heard the James Arthur and Anne-Marie version that I realized how great this song is. This is a fairly simple song to play and you’ll need a capo on the 3rd fret of your guitar. Whether you want to play the Zac Effron/Zendaya version or the James Arthur/Anne-Marie version, rest assured what I teach you in the lesson will work for both renditions!

Enjoy! Like this #rewritethestars video from #thegreatestshowman and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

[Verse 1]
G
You know I want you
G
It's not a secret I try to hide
G
I know you want me
                          G        
So don't keep saying our hands are tied

[Prechorus]
D                           Em7
 You claim it's not in the cards
                        Cadd9
But fate is pulling you miles away
                      D 
And out of reach from me
                      Em7
But you're here in my heart
                      Cadd9
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny?

[Chorus]
            Em7          Cadd9
What if we rewrite the stars?
             G          D
Say you were made to be mine
              Em7      Cadd9
Nothing could keep us apart
             G                 D/F#
You'd be the one I was meant to find
            Em7                Cadd9
It's up to you, and it's up to me
            G              D
No one can say what we get to be
                 Em7         Cadd9
So why don't we rewrite the stars?
           G             D
Maybe the world could be ours tonight

[Break]
Em7 Cadd9 G D

[Verse 2]
G
You think it's easy
G
You think I don't want to run to you
G
But there are mountains
G
And there are doors that we can't walk through

[Prechorus]
D                       Em7
I know you're wondering why
                      Cadd9
Because we're able to be
Just you and me
             D
Within these walls
              Em7
But when we go outside
                            Cadd9                          D
You're going to wake up and see that it was hopeless after all

[Chorus]
             Em7       Cadd9
No one can rewrite the stars
            G            D
How can you say you'll be mine?
            Em7     Cadd9
Everything keeps us apart
                G                     D
And I'm not the one you were meant to find
                Em7
It's not up to you
              Cadd9
It's not up to me
              G                   D
When everyone tells us what we can be
            Em7         Cadd9
How can we rewrite the stars?
             G          D
Say that the world can be ours tonight

[Bridge]
Em7                  C
   All I want is to fly with you
G                   D
   All I want is to fall with you
Em7                Bm       
  So just give me all of you
C
  It feels impossible
C
  It's not impossible
C
  Is it impossible?
              C
Say that it's possible

[Chorus]
            Em7       Cadd9
How do we rewrite the stars?
             G         D
Say you were made to be mine?
            Em7     Cadd9
Nothing can keep us apart
                  G                 D
Cause you are the one I was meant to find
            Em7
It's up to you
              Cadd9
And it's up to me
           G                D
No one can say what we get to be
                  Em7         Cadd9
And why don't we rewrite the stars?
              G        D
Changing the world to be ours
Em7 Cadd9 G D

[Outro]
G
You know I want you
G
It's not a secret I try to hide
G
But I can't have you
G
We're bound to break and
G            C
My hands are tied
