[Intro]

Am Em F C/E
Dm    C


[Verse 1]

Am          Em                   F  C/E
 Everybody loves the things you do
                   Dm                  C
 From the way you talk to the way you move
Am          Em         F        C/E
 Everybody here is watching you
                      Dm                        C         C C/B 
 Cause you feel like home, you're like a dream come true

Am           Em                 F   C/E             
 But if by chance you're here alone
               Dm              C   C C/B
 Can I have a moment before I go
Am                   Em               F   C/E
 Cause I've been by myself all night long
                Dm                 G
 Hoping you're someone I used to know


[Pre-Chorus]

                  F     G             
 You look like a movie 
                   Em   F
 You sound like a song
                F        G
 My god this reminds me   
                   Em   G
 Of when we were young


[Chorus]

          C            Em                 F              G             
 Let me photograph you in this light, in case it is the last time
          C         Em             F              G       
 That we might be exactly like we were before we realized
          Am            C/E              F        Fm      
 We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
                     Dm  F                     G     
 It was just like a movie, it was just like a song


[Verse 2]

Am          Em               F    C/E
 I was so scared to face my fears
               Dm                    C
 Cause nobody told me that you'd be here
Am            Em            F   C/E
 And I swore you moved overseas
              Dm                     G
 That's what you said when you left me


[Pre-Chorus]

                        F     G             
 You still look like a movie 
                         Em   F
 You still sound like a song
                F        G
 My god this reminds me   
                   Em   G
 Of when we were young


[Chorus]

          C            Em                 F              G             
 Let me photograph you in this light, in case it is the last time
          C         Em             F              G       
 That we might be exactly like we were before we realized
          Am            C/E              F        Fm      
 We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
                     Dm  F                     G   G/Ab
 It was just like a movie, it was just like a song


[Bridge]

       Am            C/G
 When we were young
       F             C/E
 When we were young
       Am            C
 When we were young
       F             G/Ab
 When we were young


[Verse 3]

       Am     C/G         F                C/E     
 It's hard to admit that, everything just takes me back
          Dm           C
 To when you were there
          G            G/Ab
 To when you were there
        Am               C/G        F               C/E
 And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn't gone
         Dm
 I guess I still care
     G             
 Do you still care?


[Pre-Chorus]

                     F     G             
 It was just like a movie 
                     Em   F
 It was just like a song
                F        G
 My god this reminds me   
                   Em   G
 Of when we were young


[Bridge]

       C             Em
 When we were young
       F             G
 When we were young
       C             Em
 When we were young
       F             G
 When we were young


[Chorus]

          C            Em                 F              G             
 Let me photograph you in this light, in case it is the last time
          C         Em             F              G       
 That we might be exactly like we were before we realized
          Am            C/E              F       G      
 We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
             Am             C/E               F       Fm      
 Oh, I'm so mad I'm getting old, it makes me reckless
                     Dm  F                     G     Em
 It was just like a movie, it was just like a song
               C
 When we were young

Some of the lyrics are wrong. Would be great if you could correct that. The chords are as accurate as they can be. :) Thank you for this contribution.

wrong lyrics, 'it's hard to win me back' should be 'it's hard to admit that', other than that, everything is fine
