D                              G
Baby's Black Balloon makes her fly
D                       G
I almost fell into that hole in your life
D                              G
And you're not thinking bout tomorrow

(Play Riff 1 starting at "you" on the next line)

      Riff 1
Cause you were there same as me
    G       A      G
But on your kneeeeeeeeees


[Intro]
D-G-D-G


[Verse]
D                            G
1,000 other boys could never reach you
D                         G
How could I have been the one
D                      G
I saw the world spin beneath you
    Riff 1
And scatter like ice from the spoon
     G        A     G
That was your woooooooooomb


[Chorus]
Bm    A        G            D
Comin down the world turned over
    Bm     A        G       D
And angels fall without you there
    Bm   A     G       D
And I go on as you get colder
   G       A
Or are you someone's prayer


[Intro]
D-G-D-G


[Verse]
D                             G
You know the lies they always told you
D                      G
And the love you never knew
D                            G
What's the things they never showed you
     Riff 1
That swallowed the light from the sun
  G         A            G
Inside your rooooooooom, yeeaah


[Chorus]
Bm    A        G            D
Comin down the world turned over
    Bm     A        G       D
And angels fall without you there
    Bm   A     G       D
And I go on as you get colder
G      A
Always someone


[Interlude]

D/F#  G  Bm  A
D/F#  G  Bm-A  G
(Feel this part out for timing) G G G G G G-G-G D/F#-D/F# E -----> Slide up to D note (Low E, 10th Fret)


[Bridge]
D/F#          G                A
And there's no time left for losin
A
When you stand they fall


[Chorus]
Bm    A        G            D
Comin down the world turned over
    Bm     A        G       D
And angels fall without you there
    Bm   A     G       D
And I go on as you get colder
G     A
All because I'm


[Chorus]
Bm    A        G            D
Comin down the years turn over
    Bm     A        G       D
And angels fall without you there
    Bm   A         G        D
And I go on now to lead you home and
G     A
All because I'm


[Outro]
G     A
All because I'm
    G
And I'll become
     A             D
What you became to me



that's it!   peace out

     --Matt
