The streets, the signs are pointing all one way
    G                      C
But you don't realize just what they say
        G              D/F#         Fdim             C/E
You may fight, you may run, you may know what you've done

Ebmaj7            Bbmaj7                         Ebmaj7        Bbmaj7
  To think what I might've had (what I might have had)


Bb                 Dm[Bbmaj7?]      Bb7             C
I watch the stars, I watch the sun, now I watch for anyone
              Cm        D
But it's only make believe


    G                                C
You work . . . you work, you work so hard and then
    G                       C
Someone, someone will come around again
        G              D/F#          Fdim         C/E
You may think it's for real, but you know how you feel


Ebmaj7       Bbmaj7                   Ebmaj7        Bbmaj7
  The places that I go (places that I go)
Ebmaj7            Bbmaj7                Ebmaj7        Bbmaj7
  Don’t feel good anymore (feel good anymore)

I see it all rainbows in fall I see her face upon my wall

Fly away, bluebird fly away for me

To a place somewhere far across the sea
     G         D/F#            Fdim       C/E
Fly away, far away, don't look back, go today


Ebmaj7           Bbmaj7         Ebmaj7   Bbmaj7
  The waves that crash upon the sand 
Ebmaj7    Bbmaj7           Ebmaj7   Bbmaj7
  Another place, a far off land


Bb             Dm[Bbmaj7?]     Bb7                         C
And every day, I have to stay, but you are free, you could fly away
              Cm           D/F#  D/A  D7b9      D5+     D7
