Intro: Bm D G G Em Bm A

Verse:
Bm                                 D        G
  I'm half remembered, halfway across the world,
                                G   
  Twice removed from my second home,
     Em                          Bm
  a shadow of a ghost in an old haunt,
           A
  With a lease on life 'cause I can't afford to own,
Bm                                 D
  When being young starts getting old,
          G                        G   
  a new place saves face or so I'm told,
              Em
  I'll be the new kid on an old block, 
Bm         A
  a chalk outline on a playground black top.

Chorus:
             Bm                      D
  I'm just a moment so don't let me pass you by,
                  G                                  A
  We could be a story in the morning but we'll be a legend tonight,
             Bm                      D
  I'm just a moment so don't let me pass you by,
                          G                               A
  And they can speak our names in a dead language 'cause you and I,
                              Bm
  We're alive, but just for a moment.

Verse:
Bm                                        D  
  I'm twice the man that I thought I was yesterday,
G                             G   
  Half the time I'm a world away,
    Em                              Bm
  a flicker of a soul casting silhouettes,
          A
  On the face of a town that could not get me to stay,
Bm
  When the spark's gone, 
          D           G                            G   
  Former lovers just looking for a bus to throw me under,
              Em         
  I'll be the new kid on an old block,
Bm         A
  a chalk outline on a playground black top.

Chorus:
             Bm                     D
  I'm just a moment so don't let me pass you by,
                 G                                   A
  We could be a story in the morning but we'll be a legend tonight,
             Bm                     D
  I'm just a moment so don't let me pass you by,
                          G                               A
  And they can speak our names in a dead language 'cause you and I,
                              G
  We're alive, but just for a moment,
A             G        A
  Just for a moment.

Bridge:
Bm                                 D
  When being young starts getting old,
          G                        G   
  a new place saves face or so I'm told,
              Em          
  I'll be the new kid on an old block, 
Bm         A
  A chalk outline on a playground black top.

Chorus:
             Bm                     D
  I'm just a moment so don't let me pass you by,
                 G                                   A
  We could be a story in the morning but we'll be a legend tonight,
             Bm                     D
  I'm just a moment so don't let me pass you by,
                          G                               A
  And they can speak our names in a dead language 'cause you and I,
                              Bm
  We're alive, but just for a moment,
              D
  Just for a moment,
              G
  Just for a moment.
