B                        F#                        
Playing on your radio, coming through your stereo
        Gm
And everybody's getting down

You can't seem to let it go, running like a video
         Gm
You're haunted by the weight of sound

B                   F#          Gm
In your eyes, you focus on the light

And for tonight, just relax and let's get high

The sun it is a sinking low, I'm thinking that it's time to go
       Gm
And everybody's headed home
B                                 F#           
Watch them as they come and go, listen to your soul it knows
Gm
Can you feel the weight of sound?

It's just love there's nothing that's more real
B                   F#               Gm
This love, and the way it makes you feel
