Capo 2nd Fret!!!

Intro
G C Em D C x2

C                    G          
It ain't hard to get lost, 
         D                 Am
When you forget, where you come from.
          C                               G     
Turn that dial to the right and push that pedal down.
              D
Don't say goodbye,
             C
Just for the drive, 
      G       D
Along for the ride.


G                                 D
It would be real nice just to fly away,
           Em
And escape everything.
           C
But little bird,
                              G
Looks like you've got a broken wing.
                D                          Em
Now anything so easy, it might not make you weak.
       C
But it sure won't make me believe.

G C Em D C


     C                                  G
It's hell you say and it gets worse you know.
              D                                       Am
How many more days am I gonna wake up when there's no place I wanna go?
     C                                          G
That sunshine's really gonna kill us all why is everyday so cold?
       D                      C
Why is everything, so fucking cold,
         G      D
And never melts away. 


G                                 D
It would be real nice just to fly away,
           Em
And escape everything.
           C
But little bird,
                              G
Looks like you've got a broken wing.
                D                          Em
Now anything so easy, it might not make you weak.
       C
But it sure won't make me believe.


Am         C           G
That's the top of your lungs, and the bottom of your heart.  
Am          C           G
Is that the top of your lungs, Is that the bottom of your heart. 
Am  Bm     C       D          G   D
Is that as deep as your heart goes? 

G x4

G                            D  
I understand the things that keep you up,
                          Em
And I know that you still feel. 
                              C
And I know that your heart is hemorrhaging, 
                       G
And needs some time to heal. 
                            D
Now the traffic lights there on your street, 
                     Em
Flash yellow all the time,
                       C                                      Bm
And the mirror in your bathroom it looks cracked in the wrong light  
             C
But walk out through your threshold,
G                      D                C
Through your lungs and move on down the stairs.
Em          D                    C               G
And let the things you love come back to you in time
              Am   D
we'll all get there 


G                                 D
It would be real nice just to fly away,
           Em
And escape everything.
           C
But little bird,
                              G
Looks like you've got a broken wing.
                D                          Em
Now anything so easy, it might not make you weak.
       C          D        G
But it sure won't make me believe.
