Am   Am - G    C    C
[intro]

Am                  Am   -   G          C              C
Cuttin' through the darkest night in my two headlights
          Am                     Am    -    G      C            C
Trying to keep it clear, but I'm losing it here to the twilight
          Am                             Am   -   G   C           C
There's a dead end to my left, there's a burning bush to my right
    Am             Am - G    C         C
You aren't in sight,     you aren't in sight

C  F   Gsus4   G   C    F  Gsus4     G
Do you want me     like I  want you?
                 C        F                    Dm7   G
Or am I standing still, beneath the darkened sky?
                 C               F               Dm7   G
Or am I standing still, with the scenery flying by?
                 Am                F            G     Em
Or am I standing still, out of the corner of my eye?  Was that
Am  F           Gsus4  G
you passing me by?

Mothers on the stoop, boys in souped-up coupes on this hot summer night
Between fight and flight is the blind man's sight and the choice that's right
I roll the window down, feel like I'm gonna drown in this strange town
Feel broken down, I feel broken down

Do you need me, like I need you?
Or am I standing still, beneath the darkened sky?
Or am I standing still, with the scenery flying by?
Or am I standing still, out of the corner of my eye?
         Am  F           Gsus4  Em
Was that you passing me by?

Am9                     Am9
  Sweet sorrow, he said call tomorrow
Am9                     Am9
  Sweet sorrow, he said call tomorrow

Do you love me, like I love you?
Or am I standing still, beneath the darkened sky?
Or am I standing still, with the scenery flying by?
Or am I standing still, out of the corner of my eye?
Was that you passing me by?

[The end of the song repeats these chords: C F Gsus4 G]
Are you passing me by? (Passing me by)
Do you want me? (Passing me by)
Do you need me, like I need you too?
And do you want me, like I want you?
Are you passing me by?
