                     D#        D#/D Cm
You’re like a dream come true.

But if by chance you’re here alone,
              Fm7             D# D#/D Cm
Can I have a moment before I go?
                    D#/G        G#       D#/G
’Cause I’ve been by myself all night long,
               Fm7               A#sus4
Hoping you’re someone I used to know.

     Let me photograph you in this light,

     In case it is the last time that we might

     Be exactly like we were before we realised.

                G#

Cm        Gm               G#    D#/G
I was so scared to face my fears,
       Fm7                   D#    D#/D Cm
Nobody told me that you’d be here.
            D#/G          G#   D#/G
And I swear you moved overseas,
            Fm                 A#sus4
That’s what you said when you left me.

 A#                      G#
   You still look like a movie,
 A#                       Gm7
   You still sound like a song.

     Be exactly like we were before we realised.

 G7/B   Cm      D#/A#
   It’s hard to admit
        G#              D#/G
   That everything just takes me back
           Fm7
   To when you were there,
           A#sus4
   To when you were there.
 G7/B    Cm               D#/A#
   And a part of me keeps holding on
   G#               D#/G
   Just in case it hasn’t gone,
           Fm7
   I guess I still care.

   Do you still care?

 A#                   G#
   It was just like a movie,
 A#                   Gm7
   It was just like a song.

   My God, this reminds me
 A#                Gm7
   Of when we were young,

     It makes me reckless.
