Lyrics and Music by Adele Adkins and Tobias Jesso Jr.


Intro: C#m E/G# | A E/G# | F#m7 | E

C#m       G#m                  A   E/G#
Everybody loves the things you do,
                 F#m7                E
From the way you talk to the way you move.
C#m       E/G#     A            E/G#
Everybody here is watching you,
                    F#m7                        E         E/Eb C#m
’Cause you feel like home, you’re like a dream come true.

          G#m                 A     E/G#
But if by chance you’re here alone,
             F#m7            E   E/Eb C#m
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    E/G#        A          E/G#
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
              F#m7              Bsus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

 B                 A
   You look like a movie,
 B                  G#m7
   You sound like a song.
 A
   My God, this reminds me
 B                 G#m7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   B7       E              G#m
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        A              B                 E
     In case it is the last time that we might
         G#m            A                 B
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             C#m            G#m             A
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Am6                  F#m7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Bsus4  B
     It was just like a song.

C#m      G#m              A       E/G#
I was so scared to face my fears,
       F#m7                  E     E/Eb C#m
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            E/G#         A      E/G#
And I swear you moved overseas,
            F#m                Bsus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 B                       A
   You still look like a movie,
 B                        G#m7
   You still sound like a song.
 A
   My God, this reminds me
 B                 G#m7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   B7       E              G#m
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        A              B                 E
     In case it is the last time that we might
         G#m            A                 B
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             C#m            G#m             A
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Am6                  F#m7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Bsus4
     It was just like a song.

   G#7/C   C#m
     When we were young.
   E/B     Aadd9
     When we were young.
   E/G#    F#m7
     When we were young.
           Bsus4
     When we were young.

Bridge:
 G#7/C  C#m     E/B        Aadd9           E/G#
   It’s hard to admit that everything just takes me back
           F#m7                    Bsus4
   To when you were there, to when you were there.
 G#7/C   C#m              E/B        Aadd9           E/G#
   And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn’t gone,
           F#m7             Bsus4
   I guess I still care. Do you still care?

 B                    A
   It was just like a movie,
 B                    G#m7
   It was just like a song.
 A
   My God, this reminds me
 B                 G#m7
   Of when we were young,
 B7      E
   When we were young,
 G#m7    A
   When we were young,
 B       E
   When we were young,
 G#m7    A
   When we were young.

Chorus:
   B7       E              G#m
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        A              B                 E
     In case it is the last time that we might
         G#m            A              B
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             C#m            G#m             A
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   B7           C#m            G#m              A
     Oh, I’m so mad at getting old, it makes me reckless.
   Am6                  F#m7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Bsus4
     It was just like a song.
   B              E
     When we were young.
