I wipe the [D]dreams from my [A11]eyes, face the [G]morning [Asus2]outside

[Em]And I wake up, [Asus]watching the [A11]world go [D]by.

I see the [D]sun and the [A11]rain from my [G]seat on the [Asus2]train

[Em]Through the window, [Asus2]watching the [A11]world go [D]by.

[D/C#]And I look on [G]at the day unfolding

[D/C#]And the traffic [G]going [Asus2]nowhere [A11] (strum A11)

Gazing [D]out on the [A11]street and the [G]faces I [Asus2]meet 

[Em]Everyday [Asus2]watching the [A11]world go [D]by.

There are [D]those who dont [A11]stop for the [G]hands on the [Asus2]clock

[Em]They dont see the [Asus2]way the [A11]time can [D]fly

Always [D]running [A11]behind with so [G]much on their [Asus2]minds

As for [E]me, I'm [G]watching the [Asus2]world go [D]by.

[D/C#]And through it all [G]with the hours passing

[D/C#]Everybody [G]rushing [Asus2]somewhere. [A11] (strum A11)

[D]They're all moving so [A11]fast trying [G]hard to get [Asus2]past

As I [Em]stand [Asus2]watching the [A11]world go [D]by. 

[D] [A11] [G] [Asus2] [E] [G] [Asus2] [D]   x2

[D/C#]And in the end [G]when the day is over

[D/C#]When I ask myself just [G]where the [Asus2]world is [A11]going. (strum A11)

What's been [D]lost? What's been [A11]gained? Have our [G]lives really [Asus2]changed?

Then I [Em]laugh, and [Asus2]sometimes [A11]I wanna [D/C#]cry

[Asus2]Watching the [A11]world go [D]by.

[D] [A11] [G] [Asus2] [E]

[Asus2]Watching the [A11]world go [D]by.
