Lyrics and Music by Adele Adkins and Tobias Jesso Jr.


Intro: Em G/B | C G/B | Am7 | G

Em        Bm                   C   G/B
Everybody loves the things you do,
                 Am7                 G
From the way you talk to the way you move.
Em        G/B      C            G/B
Everybody here is watching you,
                    Am7                         G         G/F# Em
’Cause you feel like home, you’re like a dream come true.

          Bm                  C     G/B
But if by chance you’re here alone,
             Am7             G   G/F# Em
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    G/B         C          G/B
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
              Am7               Dsus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

 D                 C
   You look like a movie,
 D                  Bm7
   You sound like a song.
 C
   My God, this reminds me
 D                 Bm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   D7       G              Bm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        C              D                 G
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Bm             C                 D
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Em             Bm              C
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Cm6                  Am7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Dsus4  D
     It was just like a song.

Em       Bm               C       G/B
I was so scared to face my fears,
       Am7                   G     G/F# Em
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            G/B          C      G/B
And I swear you moved overseas,
            Am                 Dsus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 D                       C
   You still look like a movie,
 D                        Bm7
   You still sound like a song.
 C
   My God, this reminds me
 D                 Bm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   D7       G              Bm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        C              D                 G
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Bm             C                 D
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Em             Bm              C
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Cm6                  Am7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Dsus4
     It was just like a song.

   B7/Eb   Em
     When we were young.
   G/D     Cadd9
     When we were young.
   G/B     Am7
     When we were young.
           Dsus4
     When we were young.

Bridge:
 B7/Eb  Em      G/D        Cadd9           G/B
   It’s hard to admit that everything just takes me back
           Am7                     Dsus4
   To when you were there, to when you were there.
 B7/Eb   Em               G/D        Cadd9           G/B
   And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn’t gone,
           Am7              Dsus4
   I guess I still care. Do you still care?

 D                    C
   It was just like a movie,
 D                    Bm7
   It was just like a song.
 C
   My God, this reminds me
 D                 Bm7
   Of when we were young,
 D7      G
   When we were young,
 Bm7     C
   When we were young,
 D       G
   When we were young,
 Bm7     C
   When we were young.

Chorus:
   D7       G              Bm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        C              D                 G
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Bm             C              D
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             Em             Bm              C
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   D7           Em             Bm               C
     Oh, I’m so mad at getting old, it makes me reckless.
   Cm6                  Am7
     It was just like a movie,
                        Dsus4
     It was just like a song.
   D              G
     When we were young.
