OBJECTS IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR
MeatLoaf
(Steinman)
Album: Back Into Hell
Submitted by: Christopher R.
Sept. 5, 2003

Capo 3rd Fret

Intro:  (D)     (Esus)  (F#m)  (G)  (Bm7)  (F#m)   (D)   (A)

The (D) skies were pure and the (Esus) fields were green
And the (F#m) sun was brighter than it's (G) ever been
When I grew (Bm7) up with my best friend (F#m) Kenny
We were close as any (Gmaj7) brothers than you ever (A) knew
 
It was (D) always summer and the (Esus) future called
We were (F#m) ready for adventures and we (G) wanted them all
And there was (Bm7) so much left to dr(F#m)eam and so much (Gmaj7) time to make it (A) real 

But I can (Bm) still recall the (F#m) sting of all the (G) tears when he was go(A)ne
They said he (Bm) crashed and burned
I know I'll (F#m) never learn why any (G) boy should die so yo(A)ung 

We were (Em7) racing, we were soldiers of for(A)tune
We got in (Bm) trouble but we sure got ar(G)ound
There are (Em7) times I think I see him peeling (A) out of the dark
I think he's (Bm) right behind me (Bm/A) now and he's gaining gr(G)ound 

Chorus:
But it was (F#m7) long ago and it was (Bm) far away, oh God it (G) seems so very (A) far
And if (F#m7) life is just a high(Bm)way, then the (G) soul is just a (A) car (A7) 
And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And  objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are

(Solo) 

And when the (D) sun descended and the (Esus) night arose
I (F#m) heard my father cursing every(G)one he knows
He was (Bm7) dangerous and drunk and de(F#m)feated
And corroded by (Gmaj7) failure and envy and (A) hate 

There were (D) endless winters and the (Esus) dreams would freeze
No(F#m)where to hide and no (G) leaves on the trees
And my (Bm7) father's eyes were (F#m) blank as he hit me a(Gmaj7)gain and again and a(A)gain 

I know I (Bm) still believe he'd never (F#m) let me leave, I had to (G) run away al(A)one
So many (Bm) threats and fears, so many (F#m) wasted years before my (G) life became my (A) own 

And though the (Em7) nightmares should be (A) over
Some of the (Bm) terrors are still in(G)tact
I'll hear that (Em7) ugly coarse and vi(A)olent voice
And then he (Bm) grabs me from be(Bm/A)hind and then he pulls me (G) back 

Chorus:
But it was (F#m7) long ago and it was (Bm) far away, oh God it (G) seems so very (A) far
And if (F#m7) life is just a high(Bm)way, then the (G) soul is just a (A) car (A7) 
And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And  objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are

(Solo) 

There was a (D) beauty living on the (Esus) edge of town
And she al(F#m)ways put the top up and the (G) hammer down
And she (Bm7) taught me everything I'll (F#m) ever know
About the (Gmaj7) mystery and the muscle of (A) love 

The (D) stars would glimmer and the (Esus) moon would glow
I'm in the (F#m) back seat with my Julie like a (G) Romeo
And the (Bm7) signs along the (F#m) highway all said, (G) 'Caution! Kids At (A) Play!' 

Those were the (Bm) rights of spring and we did (F#m7) everything
There was sal(G)vation every (A) night
We got our (Bm) dreams reborn and our up(F#m7)holstery torn
But every(G)thing we tried was (A) right 

She used her (Em7) body just like a (A) bandage, she used my (Bm) body just like a (A) wound
I'll probably (Em7) never know where she (A) disappeared
But I can (Bm) see her rising up out of the (Bm/A) back seat now
Just like an (Gmaj7) angel rising up from a (G) tomb 

Chorus:
But it was (F#m7) long ago and it was (Bm) far away, oh God it (G) seems so very (A) far
And if (F#m7) life is just a high(Bm)way, then the (G) soul is just a (A) car (A7sus)  (A)  (A7)
And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are 
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And  objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are

And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are

And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are

And (D) objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are
And objects in the rear view (Esus) mirror may appear clo(D/F#)ser (G) than they (D) are

She used her (Em7) body just like a (A) bandage, she used my (Bm) body just like a (G) wound
I'll probably (Em7) never know where she (A) disappeared
But I can (Bm) see her rising up out of the (Fm/G) back seat now
