VERSE:
[Am]I saw you sitting at the center of a circle
[C]Everybody, everybody wanted [D]something from you
[Am]I saw you sitting there
[Am]I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music
[C]Caught you playing, caught you praying to the[D] voice inside you
[Am]I saw you swaying there

BRIDGE:
[Em]I don't care [Am]what you want to be
[Em]I go back so far,[Am] I'm in front of me!
[Em]It doesn't matter [Am]what they say
[Em]They're giving the game away, hey, [G]hey!

CHORUS:
[Am]I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

VERSE:
I heard you listening to a secret conversation
You were crying, you were trying not to let them hear you
I heard you listening in

BRIDGE:
Never mind, what they want to do
You've got a right, to your point of view
It doesn't matter what they say
They're giving the game away, hey, hey!

CHORUS:
[Am]I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

VERSE:
I saw you hiding from a flock of paparazzi
You were hoping, you were hoping that the ground would swallow you
I saw you hiding there
