Getting to the Point
Electric Light Orchestra
from "Balance of Power"

Transcribed by Chris Gaasch

Verse:
               G               G/B
It's out of control (out of control)
            C             D
And there's nothing I can do now
          G               G/B
Out of control (out of control)
         C                  D
Swimming softly through the blue now
    Bm                Em
And look beyond these walls
       Am      Bm        C
As the meaning starts to dawn
     D                 (Em-D-C)
It's getting to the point
               G
Getting to the point.

Verse:
               G                   G/B
It's out of control (nothing I can do)
       C                  D
Like a fire that keeps on burning
           G                     G/B
And nobody knows (what I'm going through)
        C                    D
And the thoughts just keep returning
    Bm             Em
And all you had to say
         Am     Bm      C
Was that you were gonna stay
     D                 (Em-D-C)
It's getting to the point
     D              G
It's getting to the point.

Chorus:
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
                 G/B(no 3rd)
Where nobody can stop it now
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
        G/B(no 3rd)
Of no return
    G        D     C
And all that I can do
             G        Em
Is stand and watch it now
         Am    Bm    D
Watch it burn, burn, burn

     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
                  G/B(no 3rd)
Where reasons are forgotten
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
             G/B(no 3rd)
Where no one knows
    G        D     C
And all that I can do
           G  Em
Is say I'm sorry
               Am  Bm C
But that's the way it goes...
D              G
Getting to the point.


Verse:
Forever
Is a long, long way
Forever
Takes your breath away
I'd like to talk about it, try to understand
It's getting to the point
Getting to the point.

Chorus:
It's getting to the point
Where nobody can stop it now
It's getting to the point
Of no return
And all that I can do
Is stand and watch it now
Watch it burn, burn, burn

It's getting to the point
Where reasons are forgotten
It's getting to the point
Where no one knows
And all that I can do
Is say I'm sorry
               Am  Bm D
But that's the way it goes...

Sax Solo in Gmaj Pentatonic (over chorus chords):

Ending:
                    G              Am     G/B
It's getting to the point (getting to the point)
C              G              Am     G/B
Getting to the point (getting to the point)
     C              G              Am     G/B
It's getting to the point (getting to the point)
C              G
Getting to the point.

A great song and the chords work fine. As well as guitar, I have tried the chords on Piano and they work well especially the G/B
