Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are  Meat Loaf

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------


[F]       [Gsus2]           [Am]        [Bb]    [Dm7]       [Am/E]           [F/Bb]        [C]  The s[F]kies were pure and the [Gsus2]fields were green
The [Am]sun was brighter than it's e[Bb]ver been
When I grew [Dm7]up with my best friend K[Am/E]enny
We were close as any b[Bbmaj7]rothers than you ever k[C]new
It was always summer and the future called
We were ready for adventures and we wanted them all
There was so much left to dream
And so much time to make it real
But I can s[Dm]till recall the sti[Am7/E]ng of all
The tear[Bb]s when he was gone[C]
They said he c[Dm]rashed and burned
I know I'll [Am7/E]never learn why any [Bb]boy should die so y[C]oung
We were r[Gm7]acing, we were soldiers of for[C]tune
We got in tr[Dm]ouble but we sure got aro[Bb]und
There are t[Gm7]imes I think I see him peeling o[C]ut of the dark
I think he's r[Dm]ight behind me n[Dm/C]ow and he's gaining g[Bb]round
But it was l[Am7]ong ago and it was [Dm]far away
Oh God it s[Bb]eems so very far[C]
And if l[Am7]ife is just a hig[Dm]hway
Then the s[Bb]oul is just a car[C] [C7]
And o[F]bjects in the rear view [Gsus2]mirror may appear c[F/A]loser t[Bb]han they a[F]re
And objects in the rear view [Gsus2]mirror may appear c[F/A]loser than they a[F]re
[Gm]        [F/A]         [Bb]        [Csus]They  a[F]re
[Dm]And when[Bb] the sun [C7sus]descended and the night arose
I heard my father cursing everyone he knows
He was dangerous and drunk and defeated
And corroded by failure and envy and hate
There were endless winters and the dreams would freeze
Nowhere to hide and no leaves on the trees
And my father's eyes were blank as he hit me again and again and again
I know I still believe he'd never let me leave, I had to run away alone
So many threats and fears, so many wasted years before my life became my own
And though the nightmares should be over
Some of the terrors are still intact
I'll hear that ugly coarse and violent voice
And then he grabs me from behind and then he pulls me back
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are...

[Gm7]         [C]       [Dm]        [Bb]   [Gm7]         [C]       [Dm]        [Dm/C]           [Bbmaj7]         [Dm/C]     [Gm7]         [C]       [Dm]        [Bb]   [Gm7]         [C]       [Dm]        [Dm/C]           [Bbmaj7]         [Bb/C]     [F]         [Gsus2]       [Am]        [Bb]   [Dm7]There was[Am/E] a beau[Bbmaj7]ty livin[C]g on the edge of town
And she always put the top up and the hammer down
And she taught me everything I'll ever know
About the mystery and the muscle of love
The stars would glimmer and the moon would glow
I'm in the back seat with my Julie like a Romeo
And the signs along the highway all said, "Caution! Kids At Play!"
Those were the rights of spring and we did everything
There was salvation every night
We got our dreams reborn and our upholstery torn
But everything we tried was right
She used her body just like a bandage, she used my body just like a wound
I'll probably never know where she disappeared
But I can see her rising up out of the back seat now
Just like an angel rising up from a tomb
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are...
She used her body just like a bandage, she used my body just like a wound
I'll probably never know where she disappeared
But I can see her rising up out of the back seat now
