Stay Awake Julia Nunes

A7 D It’s like I don’t have the patience, G 
Or the will power to separate myself D 
From this inundating era I’ve been dealt
 A 
And all across the nation D G
 Pixelated screens light up the night A7 D 
Of insomniacs and night owls alike

 A7 Em But we can turn off the lights A The sun’s coming up 
G A No dreams tonight to interrupt E G A 
Turn off the alarm before it sounds Em G And get out of bed without putting your head Em A D down, down

 A7 D I’ve been closing my eyes real tight G But the space between my lids betrays the light A7 D So I’m up again, I lost the will to fight 

D The scrolling information 
 G Pulls me in and holds me in a trance 
A7 D Link to link, no I don’t stand a chance


A7 Em But we can turn off the lights... G D 
Stay awake with me G D In the darkness you will see G D Em A D 
What I’ve known all along, all along along

 A D Baby when you’re sleeping Em I wonder if you see me in your dreams A7 D
 Do you know exactly what it means 

D Maybe we are falling G And when I hit the ground I disappear A7 D
 But you open up your eyes and I’m still here

 A7 Em But we can turn off the lights... Em A Em A Em A D Down, down, down

The Debt Julia Nunes

A D A D A Well, I bet you thought that D I forgot about our deal A But I am a man of my words, though they be strange and absurd D I’m just trying to keep it real A And I know I lost the bet, but I haven’t lost you yet D And if drinking lemonade for the rest of my days G E Would save you, you know I would do... it A D A D A Remember Regina and Sarah and cereal bowls? D And wearing our hats, even when it’s not cold? A I’ll never relate to your city peeps D ‘Cause I do most of my thuggin’ on suburban streets G E A I get terrified, but I’m fine... when I’m with you

16

A D A D G D You should know that I love it when you sing G But I’d love it even more D if you’d stop hitting things G D A Regardless, I’d be heartless... without you A D A D A Well, I haven’t yelled at someone in a pretty long time D And the last time that I did, I regretted it A I can’t wait ‘till senior year, D when I will live in constant fear A ‘Cause you’ll act like a zombie, and slobber all on me D You know that I hate it, but I wouldn’t trade it G E A For any asshole you don’t... like D Yeah, you’re stuck with me G E A D A D For the rest of our afterlives

Bm F# Last thing I remember, I was running for the door A I had find the passage back to the E place I was before G “Relax” said the night man; D we are programmed to receive Em You can check out anytime you like F# But you can never leave...

Ukulele Scales

(for improvisation and accompanying songs) The scales pattern for the ukulele is as follows:

The following tab: A -------------------------------------1----3----3---------E -----------------1----2------4---------------------------C -----1----3----------------------------------------------G -----------------------------------------------------------

or in tab mode:

illustrates the C# major scale. If we look at the note chart at the bottom of the page, we can see A -------------------------------------0----2----3---------- that the root note, which is on the first fret of E -----------------0----1------3---------------------------- the 3rd string, is a C#. C -----0----2----------------------------------------------G ----------------------------------------------------------- Thus, to play a D major scale, all we’d have to do is move the progression one fret to the right, or the scale pictured above is the C major scale. We increase every number in the tab by one. know this because the ‘root note’, the first note Songs in the key E should be accompanied by played is a C. And so, if we see the following: notes in the scale of E, which, using the chart at the bottom of the page, we know has a root note on the 4th fret of the C string. Use the chart to quickly figure out the scale in case you need to harmonise to a song. we should know it is the E major scale, as its root note, on the 4th fret of the 3rd string is an E.
