    I think what Shawn was using was:

    D (2220)
    F#m (2120)
    Em (4432) - sometimes he might be using G (4232) instead
    F#m_high (6654)
    Bm_high (7675)
    Bm (4222)
    F#m7 (6657)

    There’s something in your eyes (D, F#m)
    Is everything alright (D, F#m)
    You look up to the sky (Em, F#m_high)
    You long for something more darling (Bm_high)
    **repeat chord progression for rest of verse

    Chorus:
    I know that after tonight (Bm)
    you don’t have to look up at the stars no no no no (F#m, Bm)
    I know by the end tonight (Bm)
    you don’t have to look about the stars (F#m, Bm)
    And I know that if the love is alright (Bm)
    you don’t have to look up at the stars (F#m, Bm)
    no no no no (G, F#m_high --> F#m7)

    -------------------

    But I think what Justin uses in his recording is more like:

    Cm (5333)
    Gm (3231)
    Fm (5543)
    G#_high (5346)
    Bb (3211)
    G# (1343)

    Intro: Bb, G#, Bb, G#
    There’s something in your eyes (Cm, Gm)
    Is everything alright (Cm, Gm)
    You look up to the sky (Fm, Gm)
    You long for something more darling (G#_high)
    Give me your right hand (Bb, G#)
    I think I understand (Bb, G#)
    Follow me and you will never have to wish again (Fm, Gm, G#_high)

    Chorus:

    I know that after tonight (Fm, Cm)
    you don’t have to look up at the stars no no no no (Gm, Cm)
    I know by the end tonight (Fm, Cm)
    you don’t have to look about the stars (Gm, Cm)
    And I know that if the love is alright (Fm, Cm)
    you don’t have to look up at the stars (Gm, Cm)
    no no no no (Bb, G#)


    Either way, it's a pretty sweet song. Very Mraz-ish.

    Wow. How do you come up with those crazy chords, PMS? I have a hard time just fingering them all, since half of those are unorthodox voicings of the chords. But very nice work, thank you very much for posting them.

    So I found the chords, but they are guitar chords....
    The guy who posted it didnt know what 3 C chords were, so he named them C1, C2, C3.... These are the Chords to do that fancy slide....
    But alot of the chords are on here, so hopefully this'll get you started...

    Forgot to mention, the Guitar chords work with the uke fine....
    Just use standard GCEA Tuning and it'll sound dead on...
    Uke On baby....
