Learn the Chord Progression

Someone You Loved uses the simple 1-5-6-4 (I-V-vi-IV), four-chord progression. The song is played in the key of D, so the first chord is a D. The scale of the notes goes from F# at the top to A at the bottom.

If you look at the Someone You Loved sheet music, the riff used in the opening introduction for the song is used for most of the song. However, it is played in different chords.

Practice playing the opening riff from the intro before completing the rest of the four-chord progression.

The second chord is the A chord. The notes start with C# and end with -E. The third chord is B minor, which has a scale of notes from D to F#. The fourth chord is G. The notes start with B and end with D.

Repeat the four-chord progression until you feel comfortable playing it. You could also start with a slower tempo to focus on your fingering before moving on.

Lyrics

I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to save me
This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy
I need somebody to heal
Somebody to know
Somebody to have
Somebody to hold
It’s easy to say
But it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain
Now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to turn to
This all or nothing way of loving got me sleeping without you
Now, I need somebody to know
Somebody to heal
Somebody to have
Just to know how it feels
It’s easy to say but it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you helped me escape
Now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
And I tend to close my eyes when it hurts sometimes
I fall into your arms
I’ll be safe in your sound ’til I come back around
For now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
But now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
