[Intro]
C  Em


[Verse]
C
This town is colder now, I think it's sick of us
Em
It's time to make our move, I'm shakin' off the rust
C
I've got my heart set on anywhere but here
Em                                       Am
I'm staring down myself, counting up the years
                            F
Steady hands, just take the wheel
                            Am
And every glance is killing me
                       F
Time to make one last appeal for the life I lead


[Chorus]
C
Stop and stare
                         G
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
                       Am
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
                        F
But I've become what I can't be, oh
C
Stop and stare
                                G
You start to wonder why you're 'here' not 'there'
                           Am
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
                               F
But fair ain't what you really need
                       C
Oh, can you see what I see?


[Verse]
C                                          Em
They're tryin' to come back, all my senses push
                                         Am
Untie the weight bags, I never thought I could
                           F
Steady feet, don't fail me now
                        Am
Imma run till you can't walk
                         F
Something pulls my focus out

And I'm standing down


[Chorus]
C
Stop and stare
                         G
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
                       Am
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
                       F
But I've become what I can't be, oh
C
Stop and stare
                                G
You start to wonder why you're 'here' not 'there'
                           Am
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
                              F
But fair ain't what you really need
              C      Em   Am   F
Oh, you don't need, ooh, ooh, ooh

(What you need, what you need, what you need)


[Chorus]
C
Stop and stare
                         G
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
                       Am
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
                       F
But I've become what I can't be, oh
                      C~
Oh, do you see what I see?
