[Verse 1]
G    G(b5)  G5   D/F#   Em7     A13sus4   A7sus4
    Spinn - ing further from the sun,
G    G(b5)  G5   D/F#   Em7     A13sus4   A7sus4
    Here's  Oc - tober  in  our lungs,
G    G6  G(b5)  D/F#    Ddim/F   Em7  Gmaj7/B                D2/4
    Come  out - side, up in the sky,         the birds are leaving!


[Verse 2]
G    G(b5)  G5   D/F#   Em7     A13sus4   A7sus4
    Clouds  of instinct fill the air,
G   G(b5)  G5   D/F#   Em7      A13sus4   A7sus4
    And  what - ever brought us here,
G    G6  G(b5)  D/F#      Ddim/F     Em7  Gmaj7/B                D2/4
    Come  next year, will bring a - gain,        the birds are leaving!


[Verse 3]
Csus2(#11)                 G/B          Gmaj7/B
           Tell me that a lovers touch...
D/A                        Em7
   ...is more than nature planting seeds,
D/F#  Em7          A7sus4     G
 Or,  what am I...  to be - lieve?


[Verse 4]
G(b5)  G5  D/F#       Em7    A13sus4   A7sus4
South  of  here the winter's kinder,
G   G(b5) G5   D/F#     Em7      A13sus4   A7sus4
     So  they leave to find fair weather,
G   G6  G(b5) D/F#     Ddim/F   Em7  Gmaj7/B               D2/4
    And  how  high our spirits rise,        on their re - turning!
