Artist:     Jewel
Title:      Standing Still
Album:      This Way

Capo 2nd fret
(you can use the standard tuning, but it's a bit harder!)
(This tuning is very simple, just listen to the track   )
(for the exact timing.                                  )
(Am in this tuning will actually sound Bm, get the rest!)

Fill: played several times through the Intro and the Verses
      (listen to the track to know where to play it)

       Am        G       C
     (rack)
F#: ------5------3-------0------
C#: -----5---------------1------
A : ----5----------------0------
E : ---7-----------------2------
B : ----------------------------
F#: ----------------------------

Intro:  Am   G   C (twice)

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

F      Gsus    G
D----o y--o--u want me
F    Gsus   G
Like I ---- want you

Chorus:
G                C
Or am I standing still?
F                    Dm
Beneath the darkened sky
G                C
Or am I standing still?
          F             Dm
With the scenery flying by
G                Am
Or am I standing still?
            F           Gsus 
Out of the corner of my eye
Em       Am
Was that you
F          Gsus    G
Passing me by

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

F      Gsus    G
D----o y--o--u need me
F    Gsus   G
Like I ---- need you

Repeat chorus

N.C
Sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow
N.C
Sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow

F      Gsus    G
D----o y--o--u love me
F    Gsus   G
Like I ---- love you
