VERSE:
Am
I saw you sitting at the center of a circle
C                           D
Everybody, everybody wanted something from you
Am
I saw you sitting there
Am
I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music
C                                            D
Caught you playing, caught you praying to the voice inside you
Am
I saw you swaying there

BRIDGE:
Em           Am
I don't care what you want to be
Em               Am
I go back so far, I'm in front of me!
Em                Am
It doesn't matter what they say
Em                                 G
They're giving the game away, hey, hey!

CHORUS:
Am
I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

VERSE:
I heard you listening to a secret conversation
You were crying, you were trying not to let them hear you
I heard you listening in

BRIDGE:
Never mind, what they want to do
You've got a right, to your point of view
It doesn't matter what they say
They're giving the game away, hey, hey!

CHORUS:
Am
I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight
