This is my first tab and I've only been playing a year, so it's really simple.
If you're more advanced, you can probably figure out some things to give it a
little more flavor, but for just playing and singing along these chords work
pretty well. Also, check out the song for the strumming pattern.

Intro:
Am         G      C          F
Da da da n da da, Da da da n da da
Am         G        C                x2
Da da da n da da da da

Verse:
Am           G
Grew up in a small town
C                       F
And when the rain would fall down
Am       G            F 
I'd just stare out my window
Am               G 
Dreaming of what could be
C                 F 
And if I'd end up happy
Am G     C
I would pray 

Am             G
Trying hard to reach out
C                   F 
But when I tried to speak out
Am        G            F 
Felt like no one could hear me
Am           G 
Wanted to belong here
C                     F 
But something felt so wrong here
Am G   C 
So I'd pray 
Am      G       D   F
I could break away 

Chorus:
C                             G  
I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly.
     Am                    F        
I'll do what it takes till I touch the sky. 
C
Make a wish, take a chance, 
G                  Am    G F
Make a change, and break away. 
C                       G
Out of the darkness and into the sun. 
    Am                     F
But I won't forget all the ones that I love.
     C 
I'll take a risk, take a chance, 
G                  Am    G C
Make a change, and break away 

Intro x1

Verse:
Am             G
Wanna feel the warm breeze 
C             F
Sleep under a palm tree
Am       G           F
Feel the rush of the ocean 
Am            G
Get onboard a fast train 
C           F
Travel on a jetplane
Am  G C 
Far away 
    Am    G D   F
And break away 

Chorus:
C                             G
I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly.
     Am                    F 
I'll do what it takes till I touch the sky.

Make a wish, take a chance, 
G                  Am    G F
Make a change, and break away.
C                       G 
Out of the darkness and into the sun. 
Am                         F
But I won't forget all the ones that I love.
     C 
I'll take a risk, take a chance, 
G                  Am    G C
Make a change, and break away 

Bridge:
G
Buildings with a hundred floors 
Am
Swinging with revolving doors 
G                                Am
Maybe I don't know where they'll take me 
G                   Am
Gotta keep movin on movin on
     D 
Fly away 
       F    G
Break away 

Chorus:
C                             G
I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly.
Am                      F 
Though it's not easy to tell you goodbye
C 
Make a wish, take a chance, 
G                  Am    G F
Make a change, and break away.
C                       G 
Out of the darkness and into the sun.
Am                     F 
But I won't forget the place I come from
        C 
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, 
G                  Am    G F
Make a change, and break away
Am    G F
Break away
Am    G C 
Break away


It's also a nice ending to repeat the intro one time and finish with a single strum on the C chord.

Don't need a capo, C key is right, but the bridge can do with corrections.

I want to post or [tab]
