A Rocket to the Moon - Like We Used To
Album: On Your Side

Note: This is the near-exact fingering of the chords used by A Rocket to the Moon on their acoustic studio
sessions and live recordings(watch them on youtube if you want to see for yourself). There are simpler chords
available, but if you're looking for the near exact chords used by Nick and Justin, well, here you go.

P.S. For brevity's sake, I've simplified the chord names since some of the actual names are very long,
so focus on the fingering of the chords instead of the names because they will mislead you.


Tuning: the album version is standard tuning (EADGBe), but most versions are played a half step down.

[Intro]
D - F#m - G - Bm - Esus4
D - F#m - G - Bm - Esus4

[Verse]
D                 F#m               G
I could feel her breath as she’s sleeping next to me
Bm       Esus4            G
Sharing pillows and cold feet
D               F#m           G
She can feel my heart fell asleep to its beat
Bm      Esus4             G
Under blankets and warm sheets
Em              D               A 
If only I could be in that bed again
Em              D              A (x5 downstroke)
If only it were me instead of him


[Chorus]
          D
Does he watch your favorite movies?
        F#m
Does he hold you when you cry?
                 G
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts?
             Bm               Esus4
When you’ve seen it a million times
         D
Does he sing to all your music?
            Em 
While you dance to purple rain
           Bm  Esus4   G
Does he do all these things?

Like I used to?

[Verse]
D         F#m             G 
Fourteen months and seven days ago,
               Bm         Esus4             G
Oh I know you know how we felt about that night
D         F#m                G
Just your skin against the window
                Bm     Esus4      G
But we took it slow and we both know
Em                D               A
It should've been me inside that car
Em                  D              A (5x downstroke)
It should have been me instead of him in the dark


[Chorus]
          D
Does he watch your favorite movies?
        F#m
Does he hold you when you cry?
                 G
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts?
             Bm               Esus4
When you’ve seen it a million times
         D
Does he sing to all your music?
           Em
While you dance to purple rain
           Bm  Esus4   G
Does he do all these things?
               
Like I used to.

(D chord strum leading to bridge}

[Bridge]
G
I know, love (I’m a sucker for that feeling)
                 D                    A
Happens all the time, love (I always end up feeling cheated)
              G
You’re on my mind, love (Oh darlin', I know I’m not needed)
                         D           A
And that happens all the time, love yeah


[Chorus variation]
          D          
Will he love you like I loved you?
        F#m
Will he tell you everyday?
                  G
Will he make you feel like your invincible
      Bm              Esus4
With every word he’ll say
          D
Can you promise me that this was right?
       Em
Don’t throw it all away
           Bm  Esus4   G
Can you do all these things?
            Bm  Esus4    G
Will you do all these things?
             D
Like we used to
