Verse
D                  A              Bm
When I would play my song
G                  D      A
You used to sing along.
D              A             Bm
I always seem to forget
G                A               D
How fragile are the very strong.

D           A          Bm
I'm sorry I can't steal you
G          D          A
I'm sorry I can't stay
D             Bbm              Bm
So I put band-aids on your knees
G            A           D
And watch you fly away

Chorus:
G                  Bm    A       D
I'm sending you away tonight
G                      Bm             A
I'll put you on a bird's strong wing
G               Bm        A                  D
I'm saving you the best way I know how
G                         A                     D
I hope again one day to hear you sing

(same as above)
Verse:
You know we're not so far away
Get on a boat, get on a train
And if you ever think you're drowning
I'll try to slow the rain
In two years or so
Drop me a line
Write me a letter
I hope to find you're doing better, better than today, better everyday

Chorus:
I'm sending you away tonight
I'll put you on a bird's strong wing
I'm saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I'm saving you the only way that I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
G                      Bbm                    Bm             D              G            D
I hope again one day to see you bring your smile back around again

On the "Bandaids on your knees" line, instead of Bbm, it should really be an F#. It gets that almost-too-major sound.

Also the chorus sounds a little closer to this:

G D A D
I'm sending you away tonight
G A D
I'll put you on a bird's strong wing
G D A Bm
I'm saving you the best way I know how
G A D
I hope again one day to hear you sing

@Deus_Suetonius , I hope that helps a little bit!
