Red lyrics

And I’m alright
Standing in the streetlights here
Is this meant for me
My time on the outside is over

And we don’t know how you’re spending all of your days
Knowing that love isn’t here
You see the pictures but you don’t know their names
Cause love isn’t here

And I can’t do this by myself
All of these problems, they’re all in your head
And I can’t be somebody else
You took something perfect and painted it red

No sympathy
When shouting out is all you know
Behind your lies
I can see the secrets you don’t show

No we don’t know how you’re spending all of your days
Knowing that love isn’t here
You see the pictures but you don’t know their names
Cause love isn’t here

And I can’t do this by myself
All of these problems, they’re all in your head
And I can’t be somebody else
You took something perfect and painted it red
When you took something perfect and painted it red

You take the best things from me
Then everything gets empty
That’s not a world that I need
Ooh, you take the best things from me
Then everything gets empty
That’s not a world that I need

And I can’t do this by myself
All of these problems, they’re all in your head
And I can’t be somebody else
You took something perfect and painted it red

When you took something perfect and painted it red
You took something perfect and painted it red

Red – Guitar Lesson

‘Red’ by Daniel Merriweather is in the key of E major and only use the I, IV, V and VI chord throughout the entire song.

We get different extensions depending on what chord is used in conjunction with the open strings that keep ringing through all chords.

The original recording is a huge production, orchestrated by the genius that is Mark Ronson. Still, take all that away and we still find a great song.

Go to video lessons: Red chords.
