[F]Beneath the darkened [Dm]sky
[G]Or am I standing [C]still?
With the s[F]cenery flying [Dm]by
[G]Or am I standing [Am]still?
Out of the c[F]orner of my [Gsus]eye
[Em]Was that [Am]you
[F]Passing me [Gsus]by[G]
[Am]Mothers on a stoop, boys in souped-up co[G]upes [C]on this hot summer night
[Am]Between fight and flight is the blind man's s[G]ight & [C]the choice that's right
[Am]I roll the window down feels like I'm gonna d[G]rown [C]in this strange town
[Am]I feel broken down,[G] I f[C]eel broken down
