Intro: Dm F/A | Bb F/A | Gm7 | F

Dm        Am                   Bb  F/A
Everybody loves the things you do,
                 Gm7                 F
From the way you talk to the way you move.
Dm        F/A      Bb           F/A
Everybody here is watching you,
                    Gm7                         F         F/E  Dm
’Cause you feel like home, you’re like a dream come true.

          Am                  Bb    F/A
But if by chance you’re here alone,
             Gm7             F   F/E  Dm
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    F/A         Bb         F/A
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
              Gm7               Csus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

 C                 Bb
   You look like a movie,
 C                  Am7
   You sound like a song.
 Bb
   My God, this reminds me
 C                 Am7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   C7       F              Am
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Bb             C                 F
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Am             Bb                C
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Dm             Am              Bb
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Bbm6                 Gm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Csus4  C
     It was just like a song.

Dm       Am               Bb      F/A
I was so scared to face my fears,
       Gm7                   F     F/E  Dm
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            F/A          Bb     F/A
And I swear you moved overseas,
            Gm                 Csus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 C                       Bb
   You still look like a movie,
 C                        Am7
   You still sound like a song.
 Bb
   My God, this reminds me
 C                 Am7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   C7       F              Am
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Bb             C                 F
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Am             Bb                C
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Dm             Am              Bb
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Bbm6                 Gm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Csus4
     It was just like a song.

   A7/C#   Dm
     When we were young.
   F/C     Bbadd9
     When we were young.
   F/A     Gm7
     When we were young.
           Csus4
     When we were young.

Bridge:
 A7/C#  Dm      F/C        Bbadd9          F/A
   It’s hard to admit that everything just takes me back
           Gm7                     Csus4
   To when you were there, to when you were there.
 A7/C#   Dm               F/C        Bbadd9          F/A
   And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn’t gone,
           Gm7              Csus4
   I guess I still care. Do you still care?

 C                    Bb
   It was just like a movie,
 C                    Am7
   It was just like a song.
 Bb
   My God, this reminds me
 C                 Am7
   Of when we were young,
 C7      F
   When we were young,
 Am7     Bb
   When we were young,
 C       F
   When we were young,
 Am7     Bb
   When we were young.

Chorus:
   C7       F              Am
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        Bb             C                 F
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Am             Bb             C
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Dm             Am              Bb
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   C7           Dm             Am               Bb
     Oh, I’m so mad at getting old, it makes me reckless.
   Bbm6                 Gm7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Csus4
     It was just like a song.
   C              F
     When we were young.
