STANDARD TUNING; CAPO 1.
Capo 1 matches song, I personally like Capo on 2 though.

Also, at the bottom, I'll put an easier version built off this one for any beginners.

You should also check out some fingerstyle versions of this song, which are pretty sweet.


VERSE 1
  C                                 Fm6
I u-sed to thi-nk that I- could no--t, go o---n,
    C                                Fm6
and li-fe was no-thing bu-t an aw--ful so----ng.
    C                                Fm6
But no-w I kno-w the mea-ning o-f, true lo---ve.
    C                             Fm6
I'm lea-ning o-n the e-verla--sting a-------rms.


PRECHORUS
E7       Am7
If I can s-ee i--t,
           Fm6/Ab
then I can d-o i--t.  (second time around, he says 'be' instead of 'do')
          C/G
If I just believe i--t,
                F/G       G
there's nothing t-o i--t.


CHORUS
                C
I believe I can fl-y.
                Am
I believe I can touch the sk-y.
                       Dm7
I think about it every n--ight and day.
                    G
Spread my wings and fl-y awa--y.
  E/G#          Am
I believe I can s--oar.
                         Fm6/Ab
I see me running through that o-pen do--or.
                C/G
I believe I can fl---y.
                Fm6
I believe I can fl---y.
                Am7
I believe I can fl---y.
(can use Fm6 after Am7 to transition from chorus to verse)


VERSE 2
    C                                  Fm6
See I- was o-n the ver-ge of brea-kin' dow--n.
     C                            Fm6
So-meti-mes si-lence can see-m so lou--d.
           C                          Fm6
Th-ere are mir-acles in li-fe I mu-st achi--eve,
    C                                    Fm6
But fir-st I kno-w it star-ts insi-de of m--e o---h.


right into PRECHORUS then CHORUS


CHORUS 2 EXTENSION
     C/G          Fm6          Am7
I....fl---y. I....fl---y. I....fl---y. (last lines of chorus)
                Dm7                             Am7         F/G
(small instrumental) He--y, cause I- belie--ve in yo----u. O----h.


right into PRECHORUS then CHORUS


CHORUS 3 EXTENSION
     C/G          Fm6          Am7
I....fl---y. I....fl---y. I....fl---y. (last lines of chorus)
          Fm6/Ab                           C/G
If I just spre--ad my wing------s, I-- can fly. (I can fly!)
        Fm6/Ab                    C/G
I-- can fly. (I can fly!) I-- can fly.
          Fm6/Ab
If I just spre--ad my wing------s,  
        C/G                   Fm6/Ab               C/G
I-- can fl-------(I can fly!)-------(I can fly!)-------y!
                  Fm6/Ab          C/G
Woo! (I can fly!) (instrumental) Hu---m. Fly-y--------y.

**above (instrumental) is actually a nine note scale, but I couldn't 
really figure out how to play it. I think it might be a dorian scale. 
I play a D dorian scale cus it goes nicely with capo on 2, and play a 
C/G chord as the 9th note, which is the same C/G chord above "Hu--m."

Where's the key change? This would be the best if it had that.
