Lyrics and Music by Adele Adkins and Tobias Jesso Jr.


Intro: Cm Eb/G | Ab Eb/G | Fm7 | Eb

Cm        Gm                   Ab  Eb/G
Everybody loves the things you do,
                 Fm7                 Eb
From the way you talk to the way you move.
Cm        Eb/G     Ab           Eb/G
Everybody here is watching you,
                    Fm7
’Cause you feel like home,
                     Eb        Eb/D Cm
You’re like a dream come true.

          Gm                  Ab    Eb/G
But if by chance you’re here alone,
             Fm7             Eb  Eb/D Cm
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    Eb/G        Ab         Eb/G
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
              Fm7               Bbsus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

 Bb                Ab
   You look like a movie,
 Bb                 Gm7
   You sound like a song.
 Ab
   My God, this reminds me
 Bb                Gm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   Bb7      Eb             Gm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Ab             Bb                Eb
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Gm             Ab                Bb
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Cm             Gm
     We were sad of getting old,
                Ab
     It made us restless.
   Abm6                 Fm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Bbsus4 Bb
     It was just like a song.

Cm       Gm               Ab      Eb/G
I was so scared to face my fears,
       Fm7                   Eb    Eb/D Cm
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            Eb/G         Ab     Eb/G
And I swear you moved overseas,
            Fm                 Bbsus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 Bb                      Ab
   You still look like a movie,
 Bb                       Gm7
   You still sound like a song.
 Ab
   My God, this reminds me
 Bb                Gm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   Bb7      Eb             Gm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Ab             Bb                Eb
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Gm             Ab                Bb
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Cm             Gm
     We were sad of getting old,
                Ab
     It made us restless.
   Abm6                 Fm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Bbsus4
     It was just like a song.

   G7/B    Cm
     When we were young.
   Eb/Bb   Abadd9
     When we were young.
   Eb/G    Fm7
     When we were young.
           Bbsus4
     When we were young.

Bridge:
 G7/B   Cm      Eb/Bb
   It’s hard to admit
        Abadd9          Eb/G
   That everything just takes me back
           Fm7
   To when you were there,
           Bbsus4
   To when you were there.
 G7/B    Cm               Eb/Bb
   And a part of me keeps holding on
   Abadd9          Eb/G
   Just in case it hasn’t gone,
           Fm7
   I guess I still care.
      Bbsus4
   Do you still care?

 Bb                   Ab
   It was just like a movie,
 Bb                   Gm7
   It was just like a song.
 Ab
   My God, this reminds me
 Bb                Gm7
   Of when we were young,
 Bb7     Eb
   When we were young,
 Gm7     Ab
   When we were young,
 Bb      Eb
   When we were young,
 Gm7     Ab
   When we were young.

Chorus:
   Bb7      Eb             Gm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Ab             Bb                Eb
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Gm             Ab             Bb
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Cm             Gm
     We were sad of getting old,
                Ab
     It made us restless.
   Bb7          Cm             Gm
     Oh, I’m so mad at getting old,
                 Ab
     It makes me reckless.
   Abm6                 Fm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Bbsus4
     It was just like a song.
   Bb             Eb
     When we were young.
