Intro: Bm  A   D  (2x)

Verse 1:

Bm                               A        D               
Cutting through the darkest night are my two headlights
        Bm                                  A    D
Try to keep it clear, but I'm losing it here to the twilight
           Bm          
There's a dead end to my left,
                       A   D
There's a burning bush    to my right
     Bm              A       D
You aren't in sight,   you aren't in sight


Pre-Chorus:
             Gmaj7   Asus4     Gmaj7   Asus4
              Do you want  me, like I  want   you?

Chorus:

   A                    D    Gmaj7               Em7
Or am I standing still,   beneath   the darkened sky?
A                   D           Gmaj7          Em7
Am I standing still    with the scenery flying by?
A              Bm
Am I standing still?
           Gmaj7        Asus4
Out of the corner of my eye, 
F#m       Bm  Gmaj7     Asus4  A
Was that you passing me by?


Verse 2: Guitar same as first verse

Mothers on the stoop, boys in souped up coupes 
On this hot summer night
Between fight and flight is the blind man's sight,
And the choice that's right
I roll down the window, 
Feel like I'm gonna drown in this strange town
I feel broken down, uh, I feel broken down


Repeat Pre-Chorus & Chorus...

Last line of Chorus:
                F#m      Bm   Gmaj7     Asus4  F#m
		Was that you passing me by?

Bridge:
        Bm
	   Sweet sorrow, he said, "Call tomorrow."
        Bm
	   Sweet sorrow, he said, "Call tomorrow."

Pre-Chorus:
            Gmaj7   Asus4   Gmaj7   Asus4
             Do you love me like I  love you?

Repeat Chorus: Same as first time through

Tag: (words in ( ) are the echoes, which overlap 
      the other lines slightly-just listen and you'll get it)

         A  D        Gmaj7  Asus4  A             (D)
Are you pa-a-sing me  by             (passing me by)

D    Gmaj7  Asus4      A              (D)
Do you      want   me     (passing me by)

D      Gmaj7   Asus4   A
Do you need me like I need you to

D      Gmaj7   Asus4   A
Do you want me like I want you

           D  Gmaj7         Asus4  A
Or are you p-a-a-a-ssing me by

                   D   
Or am I standing still
