Intro: Am C/E | F C/E | Dm7 | C

Am        Em                   F   C/E
Everybody loves the things you do,
                 Dm7                 C
From the way you talk to the way you move.
Am        C/E      F            C/E
Everybody here is watching you,
                    Dm7                         C         C/B  Am
’Cause you feel like home, you’re like a dream come true.

          Em                  F     C/E
But if by chance you’re here alone,
             Dm7             C   C/B  Am
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    C/E         F          C/E
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
              Dm7               Gsus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

 G                 F
   You look like a movie,
 G                  Em7
   You sound like a song.
 F
   My God, this reminds me
 G                 Em7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   G7       C              Em
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        F              G                 C
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Em             F                 G
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Am             Em              F
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Fm6                  Dm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Gsus4  G
     It was just like a song.

Am       Em               F       C/E
I was so scared to face my fears,
       Dm7                   C     C/B  Am
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            C/E          F      C/E
And I swear you moved overseas,
            Dm                 Gsus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 G                       F
   You still look like a movie,
 G                        Em7
   You still sound like a song.
 F
   My God, this reminds me
 G                 Em7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   G7       C              Em
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        F              G                 C
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Em             F                 G
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Am             Em              F
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Fm6                  Dm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Gsus4
     It was just like a song.

   E7/G#   Am
     When we were young.
   C/G     Fadd9
     When we were young.
   C/E     Dm7
     When we were young.
           Gsus4
     When we were young.

Bridge:
 E7/G#  Am      C/G        Fadd9           C/E
   It’s hard to admit that everything just takes me back
           Dm7                     Gsus4
   To when you were there, to when you were there.
 E7/G#   Am               C/G        Fadd9           C/E
   And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn’t gone,
           Dm7              Gsus4
   I guess I still care. Do you still care?

 G                    F
   It was just like a movie,
 G                    Em7
   It was just like a song.
 F
   My God, this reminds me
 G                 Em7
   Of when we were young,
 G7      C
   When we were young,
 Em7     F
   When we were young,
 G       C
   When we were young,
 Em7     F
   When we were young.

Chorus:
   G7       C              Em
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        F              G                 C
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Em             F              G
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Am             Em              F
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   G7           Am             Em               F
     Oh, I’m so mad at getting old, it makes me reckless.
   Fm6                  Dm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Gsus4
     It was just like a song.
   G              C
     When we were young.
