Intro: G#m B/Eb | E B/Eb | C#m7 | B

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

          Ebm                 E     B/Eb
But if by chance you’re here alone,
             C#m7            B   B/Bb G#m
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    B/Eb        E          B/Eb
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
              C#m7              F#sus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

 F#                E
   You look like a movie,
 F#                 Ebm7
   You sound like a song.
 E
   My God, this reminds me
 F#                Ebm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   F#7      B              Ebm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        E              F#                B
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Ebm            E                 F#
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             G#m            Ebm             E
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Em6                  C#m7
     It was just like a movie,
                        F#sus4 F#
     It was just like a song.

G#m      Ebm              E       B/Eb
I was so scared to face my fears,
       C#m7                  B     B/Bb G#m
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            B/Eb         E      B/Eb
And I swear you moved overseas,
            C#m                F#sus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 F#                      E
   You still look like a movie,
 F#                       Ebm7
   You still sound like a song.
 E
   My God, this reminds me
 F#                Ebm7
   Of when we were young.

Chorus:
   F#7      B              Ebm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        E              F#                B
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Ebm            E                 F#
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             G#m            Ebm             E
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   Em6                  C#m7
     It was just like a movie,
                        F#sus4
     It was just like a song.

   Eb7/G   G#m
     When we were young.
   B/F#    Eadd9
     When we were young.
   B/Eb    C#m7
     When we were young.
           F#sus4
     When we were young.

Bridge:
 Eb7/G  G#m     B/F#       Eadd9           B/Eb
   It’s hard to admit that everything just takes me back
           C#m7                    F#sus4
   To when you were there, to when you were there.
 Eb7/G   G#m              B/F#       Eadd9           B/Eb
   And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn’t gone,
           C#m7             F#sus4
   I guess I still care. Do you still care?

 F#                   E
   It was just like a movie,
 F#                   Ebm7
   It was just like a song.
 E
   My God, this reminds me
 F#                Ebm7
   Of when we were young,
 F#7     B
   When we were young,
 Ebm7    E
   When we were young,
 F#      B
   When we were young,
 Ebm7    E
   When we were young.

Chorus:
   F#7      B              Ebm
     Let me photograph you in this light,
        E              F#                B
     In case it is the last time that we might
         Ebm            E              F#
     Be exactly like we were before we realised.
             G#m            Ebm             E
     We were sad of getting old, it made us restless.
   F#7          G#m            Ebm              E
     Oh, I’m so mad at getting old, it makes me reckless.
   Em6                  C#m7
     It was just like a movie,
                        F#sus4
     It was just like a song.
   F#             B
     When we were young.
