Intro: E E F#m F#m D D D D

E E F#m F#m D D
There's a place off Ocean Avenue
E E
Where I used to sit and talk with you
F#m F#m D D
We were both 16 and it felt so right
E E F#m F#m D D
Sleeping all day, staying up all ni-iiiight
E E F#m F#m D D
Staying up all ni-iiight

E E F#m F#m D D
There's a place on the corner of Cherry Street
E E
We would walk on the beach in our bare feet
F#m F#m D D
We were both 18 and it felt so right
E E F#m F#m D D
Sleeping all day, staying up all ni-iiight
E E F#m F#m D D
Staying up all ni-iight
E E F#m F#m
If I could find you now
D D
Things would get better
E E F#m F#m
We could leave this town
D D
And run forever
E E F#m F#m
I know some where, some how
D D
We'll be together
E E F#m F#m
Let your waves crash down on me

D D
And take me away, yeah-i-yeah-ehyeah


(verse)
Theres a piece of you that's here with me
Its everywhere I go
It's everything I see
When I sleep
I dream and it gets me by
I can make believe that you're here tonight
That you're here tonight


(chorus)
If I could find you now
Things would get better
We could leave this town
And run forever
I know some where, some how
We'll be together
Let your waves crash down on me
And take me away, yeah-i-yeah-ehyeah

Bridge: A A

Then:

A A
I remember that look in your eyes
F#m F#m
When I told you this was good bye
E E
You were begging me not tonight
D D
Not here
A A
Not now
A A
We look up at the same night sky
F#m F#m
We keep pretending the sun will not rise
E E
We'll be together for one more night
D D
Some where
A A
Some how

(Chorus Chords)
If I could find you now
Things would get better
We would leave this town
And run forever
I know some where, some how
We'll be together
Let your waves crash down on me
And take me away, yea
