GmGm chord            CC chord                        DmDm chord
City of stars, are you shining just for me?
GmGm chord            CC chord                            FF chord
City of stars, there's so much that I can't see
GmGm chord        CC chord                           FF chord       FF chord           Dm7Dm7 chord
Who knows, I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
     GmGm chord      AA chord                            DmDm chord    Dm7Dm7 chord
That now our dreams, they've finally come true

City of stars, just one thing everybody wants
GmGm chord               CC chord                                   FF chord
There in the bars and through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants
GmGm chord        CC chord                             FF chord         FF chord       Dm7Dm7 chord
It's love, yes all we're looking for is love from someone else
  GmGm chord                AA chord
a rush, a glance, a touch, a dance

  BbBb chord                 CC chord                    AA chord
a look in somebody's eyes to light up the skies
            DmDm chord                Dm7Dm7 chord
To open the world and send it reeling
  BbBb chord                      CC chord                    DmDm chord
a voice that says I'll be here and you'll be alright
BbBb chord                CC chord                      AA chord
I don't care if I know just where I will go
                  DmDm chord                Dm7Dm7 chord
'Cause all that I need’s this crazy feeling
  BbBb chord                AA chord
a rat-tat-tat on my heart
                   DmDm chord    Dm7Dm7 chord
Think I want it to stay

GmGm chord            CC chord                        FF chord
City of stars, are you shining just for me?
GmGm chord            AA chord                          DmDm chord
City of stars, you never shined so brightly

    Ryan Gosling is a genra? lol I love this tab. its perfect.

  3. Chloe cavallaro

    This song me and my best friends song. We play it as a duet on the piano. It’s the song that brought us together. So I love this arrangement!!

  4. can someone explain how to do the intro?

  5. My fingers are to short…lolz

  6. okay so for “embrace i shared with you” and “love from someone else” instead of F F Dm7 you can try playing F (DDU) A (DDU) Dm7 (D) and in the chorus you can use downstrokes for all of the chords if you want i usually continue to play Dm instead of playing Dm7 i don’t play anything on “think i want it to stay” but on stay i play the cute piano thing
    this one might be easier than the one provided

  7. +2

  8. bearstronaut

    this is absolutely s t u n n i n g
    i’m crying and my school is crying the teachers are crying

    i won the talent show with this
    < 3

  9. Love it! I think it’s fine the way it is with no transposing for my voice.

  10. MeganRobinson

    A7 sounds really good in place of a lot of the As, really good tab x

  11. i feel dm7 is not needed and i just play dm instead and it sounds fine if not better??

  12. Love this tab!!!!!!!!!!
    In this sentence:
    It’s love, yes all we’re looking for is love from someone else
    I play Gm C F Am instead of F twice. I think it sounds better.

  13. Amanda Newton

    Love this. So helpful!! For a strumming pattern, pluck A,C,E,G in that order for every chord.

  14. Rileyinthecrowd

    Sounds really good as a duet if first duke is tuned a tad lower
