    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
