    Download the Lyrics and Chords

    YOU CAN PLAY ALONG WITH THE VIDEO IN GCEA TUNING! Note - in the recording the piano is playing the chords with the Am on the 1 beat, the F on the 3 beat, and the C on the & beat at the end of the bar - so slightly syncopated:

    / [Am]    [F]     [C] / [Am]    [F]     [C]/

    / 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & /  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &/

    But for purposes of simplicity and group play at BUG, we'll play it as I've shown in the INTRO in the song sheet, and let the bass do the pick-up on the "&".

    According to Smith, "the song is about the moment in the morning after a one night stand, where the person you are with leaves your house, and you are left by yourself, and it's just a second, where you are just like: 'I wish, I wish'. You don't even love them, you don't really fancy them that much, it's just nice to have someone in the bed next to you." The song won the Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and in his acceptance speech for winning the Record of the Year, Smith said that "I want to thank the man who this record is about who I fell in love with last year. Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys." In January 2015, it was revealed that a settlement had been reached with Tom Petty's publishing company to add Petty and Jeff Lynne as co-writers, and that they would receive a 12.5% songwriting credit because of the likeness to the melody of Petty's 1989 song "I Won't Back Down".
