G               G/F#

There is no one else around

      Em7                   Cadd9

The road is quiet the only sound

   G/B                   G/F#                 Cadd9 (2)

Is wind that sounds like cars that sound like breathing

 

G               G/F#

The desert air is hot and dry

      Em7                   Cadd9

Two lanes weaving earth and sky

   G/B                   G/F#                 Cadd9 (2)

The stars are all that's keeping time till morning

 

G               G/F#

And I turn and look beside me

      Em7                   Cadd9

And you're sleeping like a baby

   G/B                   G/F#                 Cadd9 (2)

And you haven't heard a word that I've been saying

 

G               G/F#

And the way you look tonight

      Em7                   Cadd9

Fast asleep in the dashboard light

   G/B                   G/F#                 Cadd9 (4)

Well I can't speak and that's how I feel

 

Chorus:

G (2)              Bm (2)     C (2)                     D (2) 

   Open your eyes and look at me  look at me

G (2)              Bm (2)     C (2)                     D (2) 

Open your eyes and look at me

Em             C     G         D      

   ‘Cause I have and hold this love for

Em       C        G              D            Em (2)

you  Before this ten year night is through

                 D (2)

I'm telling you

             G         G/F#   Em7   Cadd9           G/B   G/F#   Cadd9 (4)

Take it from me                        Take it from me

 

 

 

G               G/F#

We're ten years older I know we are

      Em7                   Cadd9

Than the night we met in that downtown bar

   G/B                   G/F#                 Cadd9 (2)

You thought I was some kind of star--That's what you said

 

G               G/F#

I felt your skin I felt the heat

      Em7                   Cadd9

As you pulled me out into the street

   G/B                   G/F#                 Cadd9 (2)

And you kissed me there ‘til I was weak cause I asked you to

 

G               G/F#

And later on on your kitchen floor

      Em7                   Cadd9

Two flights above the grocery store

   G/B                   G/F#       Cadd9 (4)   

I felt things I never felt before and I still do

 

Chorus

 

C (2)           G/B (2)

Going eighty on the highway

Em (2)          D (2)

We're rushing somewhere

C (2)           G/B (2)

But the way I feel tonight

Em (2)          D (2)     Em (½)

It's like I'm already there

 

Final Chorus:

G (2)              Bm (2)     C (2)                     D (2) 

   Open your eyes and look at me  look at me

G (2)              Bm (2)     C (2)                     D (2) 

Open your eyes and look at me

Em             C     G         D      

   ‘Cause I have and hold this love for

Em       C        G              D            Em (2)

you  Before this ten year night is through

                 D (4)

I'm telling you   I'm telling you

             G         G/F#   Em7   Cadd9           G/B   G/F#   Cadd9 (2)

Take it from me                        Take it from me

             G         G/F#   Em7   Cadd9           G/B   G/F#   Cadd9 (hold 2)

Take it from me                        Take it from me

 

End on G
