Kite


Verse 1:
F       Gm         C           F
I hid myself from failure and fear
      Bb             Gm           C         F
Oh my dear you’re a threat to the bad in us all
F             Gm               C              F
They tell themselves that each word from your lips
        Bb           Gm       C          F
Or the grace in your eyes overcomes any fall

Pre-Chorus:
F                Am             Bb            F   
All through the twilight you’re listening for me
Gm       F      E    Am  
Darling, go to sleep
F          Am              Bb            F   
Cradled by moonlight, I’m dreaming we’ll be
Gm    F   E   Am  
Loved so deep

Chorus:
  D           D/C#            D/C         Em     
Floating and fighting, like a kite on a string
          Eo              D          D(B5)       C#o   
‘Till you cut through my tether and changed everything
         D              D/C#          D/C          Em     
From the sky you looked small, but I loved you the same
      Eo          D         D(B5)          C#o   
So I darted back quickly to spell out your name
          D            D/C#       D/C      Em     
And when they say that I’m just a terrible kite
       Eo               D           D(B5) C#o  Dm - Am - Bb - Gm    
You’ll tell them you’re proud of my marvelous flight

Dm - Am - Gm - F/A

Verse 2:
F              Gm      C             F
Don’t hide yourself inside ‘till I’m old
      Bb             Gm           C          F
Oh my dear you’re a threat to the bad we all see
F            Gm           C              F
I’m beside myself for the touch of your lips
        Bb           Gm            C           F
Or the grace of your eyes that can see good in me

(Pre-Chorus)

Chorus:
D             D/C#            D/C        Em     
Floating and fighting, like a kite on a string
          Eo             D          D(B5)        C#o   
‘Till you cut through my tether and changed everything
         D              D/C#         D/C           Em     
From the sky you looked small, but I loved you the same
      Eo          D          D(B5)         C#o   
So I darted back quickly to spell out your name
          D            D/C#       D/C      Em     
And when they say that I’m just a terrible kite
       Eo               D           D(B5) C#o   Dm - Am - Bb - Gm    
You’ll tell them you’re proud of my marvelous flight

Hey, here is a little explanation for kite.

The o in the Eo should be superscript but Ultimate-Guitar does not allow that. The superscript o stands for Diminished or in this case Edim. A diminished chord has a flatted third and a flatted fifth. (eg. E would consist of E - G - Bb, C# would consist of C# - E - G) I'm explaining this without the aid of a piano right now so I may be off, but I'll check myself tomorrow when I have access to one.

Someone who knows a little more about the piano may be able to do a better job with naming the chords. I was a little over my head naming them because Copeland didn't really follow a key in this song. But that is why I love them.

Well I hope this helps.
The Ben
