"Broken Angel"
set tempo

(I. Hanson, T. Hanson, Z. Hanson)
C// CM7// Am//// Dm// Dm7// G////
C                       Am
So small, yet still so proud
   Dm                                     G
At night before he dreams he looks into the clouds
A high flyer's what I want to be
F                                         G
Seems they won't let me, says I'm too small
I don't feel small at all

C                             Am
Break my dreams, that's what they'll do
Dm                                            G
Well I'm going to run away and learn to fly like you
Am                F             G       Em
I'm going to go so high and swoop so low
                  F                          G
You can't bring me down, going to be so proud

C                       Am
Little angel you got to learn to fly
Bb                         F
Get up and earn your wings tonight
C                       AM
Little angel just look in my eyes
Bb                    F
Get up and earn your wings tonight

(verse2 Same as 1st verse chords)
Push and shove then climb aboard
This is the shuttle train to the top of the world
When you look around what do you see
These are all high flyers
But none of these high flyers look like me

(play intro chord progression)

What is that supposed to mean
What am I supposed to be

(verse3 same chords as verse1 again but best played lightly and pickin strings)

I pull my way up through this crowd
To find your body crushed on the ground
It's so obvious, why couldn't you see
That you can't go high flying without a pair of high-flyer wings

(Verse 4 Play with feelin cmon its last verse hehe)
Little one's broken lying on the ground
Trying to get up 'till his last breath out
Wings are strune everywhere, there's blood all around
'Cause even angel's die, but that light just fades
It's so sad, but he'd be so proud

Broken angel you've got to learn to fly
Get up and earn your wings tonight
Broken angel just look in my eyes
Get up and earn you wings tonight
Get up and earn your wings, earn your wings tonight.

Well that took me about 40 mins to transcribe i think its great i love this song its beautiful :)
p.s there's a little filler thing that goes on in the end of the chorus to verse etc here it is tabbed


i also suggest for the Em chord to use this as a voicing

These chords are really good... but if you want to play it to piano (I didn't try playing along to my CD with guitar, although I'm sure it's the same) the chords are flat. So for instance, for the C chord instead of playing C,E,G, play C#,F,G#, and change it for all the chords, and it sounds PERFECT. Also, for the "Little one's broken..." part, you play the intro progression, then for "...But even angels die" you play the same as "...I'm going to go so high." Yep! That's it. One more note... the song actually ends on the C# chord ;D Just those few minor changes and you'll be playing this song just like Zac!

i admit maybe the chords aren't exactly correct as far as variations of them lol.. but its defo not 1 semitone up... maybe your guitar was tuned a semitone low hehe. sorry to dissapoint i just stuck the song on just to see and played the chords on piano along with it.. and its defo C CM7 etc etc
