Intro: Em  C  G  D

Verse:
G
Sunlight comes creeping in
G
Illuminates our skin
Bm
We watch the day go by
Bm
Stories of all we did
C
It made me think of you
C
It made me think of you

Verse:
G
Under a trillion stars
G
We danced on top of cars
Bm
Took pictures of the state
Bm
So far from where we are
C
They made me think of you
C                        G
They made me think of you

Chorus:
   Em
Oh lights go down
                    C
In the moment we’re lost and found
                G
I just wanna be by your side
                     D
If these wings could fly
   Em
Oh damn these walls
                    C
In the moment we’re ten feet tall
                      G
And how you told me after it all
                      D
We’d remember tonight
                           G
For the rest of our lives

Verse:
G
I’m in the foreign state
G
My thoughts, they slip away
Bm
My words are leaving me
Bm
They caught an airṗlane
C
Because I thought of you
C                             G
Just from the thought of you

Chorus:
   Em
Oh lights go down
                    C
In the moment we’re lost and found
                G
I just wanna be by your side
                     D
If these wings could fly
   Em
Oh damn these walls
                    C
In the moment we’re ten feet tall
                      G
And how you told me after it all
                      D
We’d remember tonight
                           Em
For the rest of our lives

Oh lights go down

I just wanna be by your side
                     D
If these wings could fly
