This is based on the tab from Matthew Nordhaus, I made some changes that seem to make it play better IMHO. 

-- Capo 2nd Fret --
 
INTRO:  D G A Bm G  (x2) 

                       D          A                  Bm      G 
I look straight in the window,       try not to look below 
                D          A                     E        G 
Pretend I'm not up here,          I try counting sheep 
                  D        A             Bm        G
The sheep seem to shower,    off this office tower 
         D              A                  E       G
It's 9.8 straight down,    I can't stop my knees. 

CHORUS: 
                Bm            A                   E       G 
I wish I could fly, from this building, from this wall. 
                Bm             A               E       G 
And if I should try, would you catch me, if I fall.  

                   D           A             Bm      G 
My hands clench the squeegee,     a seclar rosary 
               D        A                  E       G
Hang onto your wallet,     hang onto your rings. 
            D          A                Bm          G 
I can't look below me,   something might throw me.
               D              A                  E       G
I curse at the windstorms,          that October brings. 

              D           A             Bm            G
I look in the boardroom,     a modern Pharaoh's tomb. 
                D         A                  E       G
I'd gladly swap places,      if they care to dive 
                   D          A                 Bm      G
They're lined up at the window,      peer down into limbo 
               D         A               E         G
Frightened of jumping,      in case they survive. 

               G                   A        
I wish I could step, from this scaffold, 
     Bm                   E        
Onto soft green grass and shopping malls, 
    G           A              Bm            A         
or bed, with my family, and my pastor and my grandfather 
      E     G 
who's dead. 

(softly)             D        A                Bm         G
Look straight in the mirror,     watch it come clearer
                D         A                  E       G 
I look like a painter, behind all the grease. 
               D         A                  Bm         G
But painting's creating,     and I'm just erasing 
                D         A                  E       G
A crystal clear canvas,          is my masterpiece. 


CHORUS: 
                Bm            A                   E       G 
I wish I could fly, from this building, from this wall. 
                Bm             A               E       G 
And if I should try, would you catch me, if I fall.  
                Bm            A                   E       G 
I wish I could fly, from this building, from this wall. 
                Bm             A               E       G 
And if I should try, would you catch me, if I fall.  

       D A Bm G    D A E G
When I fall...     When I fall.... mmmmmm
