Intro: Gm Bb/D | Eb Bb/D | Cm7 | Bb

Gm        Dm                   Eb  Bb/D
Everybody loves the things you do,
                 Cm7                 Bb
From the way you talk to the way you move.
Gm        Bb/D     Eb           Bb/D
Everybody here is watching you,
                    Cm7                         Bb        Bb/A Gm
’Cause you feel like home, you’re like a dream come true.

          Dm                  Eb    Bb/D
But if by chance you’re here alone,
             Cm7             Bb  Bb/A Gm
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    Bb/D        Eb         Bb/D
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
              Cm7               Fsus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

 F                 Eb
   You look like a movie,
 F                  Dm7
   You sound like a song.
 Eb
   My God, this reminds me
 F                 Dm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   F7       Bb             Dm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Eb             F                 Bb
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Dm             Eb                F
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Gm             Dm              Eb
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Ebm6                 Cm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Fsus4  F
     It was just like a song.

Gm       Dm               Eb      Bb/D
I was so scared to face my fears,
       Cm7                   Bb    Bb/A Gm
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            Bb/D         Eb     Bb/D
And I swear you moved overseas,
            Cm                 Fsus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 F                       Eb
   You still look like a movie,
 F                        Dm7
   You still sound like a song.
 Eb
   My God, this reminds me
 F                 Dm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   F7       Bb             Dm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Eb             F                 Bb
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Dm             Eb                F
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Gm             Dm              Eb
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Ebm6                 Cm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Fsus4
     It was just like a song.

   D7/F#   Gm
     When we were young.
   Bb/F    Ebadd9
     When we were young.
   Bb/D    Cm7
     When we were young.
           Fsus4
     When we were young.

Bridge:
 D7/F#  Gm      Bb/F       Ebadd9          Bb/D
   It’s hard to admit that everything just takes me back
           Cm7                     Fsus4
   To when you were there, to when you were there.
 D7/F#   Gm               Bb/F       Ebadd9          Bb/D
   And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn’t gone,
           Cm7              Fsus4
   I guess I still care. Do you still care?

 F                    Eb
   It was just like a movie,
 F                    Dm7
   It was just like a song.
 Eb
   My God, this reminds me
 F                 Dm7
   Of when we were young,
 F7      Bb
   When we were young,
 Dm7     Eb
   When we were young,
 F       Bb
   When we were young,
 Dm7     Eb
   When we were young.

Chorus:
   F7       Bb             Dm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Eb             F                 Bb
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Dm             Eb             F
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Gm             Dm              Eb
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   F7           Gm             Dm               Eb
     Oh, I’m so mad at getting old, it makes me reckless.
   Ebm6                 Cm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Fsus4
     It was just like a song.
   F              Bb
     When we were young.
