Intro -x2-: Db  Ab  Bbm  Gb

          Db                   Ab
There are days when I wake up
                      Bbm         Gb
I don't know what I'm doing here
         Db             Ab                    Bbm                Gb
I barely recognize the pair of eyes staring back at me in the mirror


                Db 
But there was a day when I was free
      Ab
Not a care that I could see
                Bbm                    Gb
So good I could barely believe it was happening
           Gb         
Oh take me back again


              Db                 Ab
When I was sixteen with an open heart
        Bbm                Gb
Windows down in a beat up car
           Db                      Ab
When I was dumb and the world was young
            Bbm         Gb
And she was beautiful
        Db          Ab
She was beautiful
        Bbm         Gb
She was beautiful


          Db                Ab
How do we end up like this
                           Bbm          Gb
Living lives that we don't care about
         Db                   Ab                       Bbm                
Too busy fixing things on computer screens while the grass grows green me
    Gb
I'm screaming out


            Db   
There was a day that I was free
      Ab
Not a care that I could see
                Bbm                    Gb
So good I could barely believe it was happening
           Gb
Oh take me back again


            Db                 Ab
Oh I was sixteen with an open heart
        Bbm                Gb
Windows down in a beat up car
           Db                      Ab
When I was dumb and the world was young
            Bbm         Gb
And she was beautiful
        Db          Ab
She was beautiful
        Bbm         Gb
She was beautiful
        Db          Ab
She was beautiful
        Bbm        Gb
She was beautiful  yeah yeah yeah

So good I could barely believe it was happening

Oh take me back again

Windows down in a beat up car
           Db                      Ab
When I was dumb and the world was young
            Bbm          Gb       
And she was beautiful

  1. I prefer to play it at +1. I prefer to sing with it at that pitch, and the chords are easier
