Hi, this my fist go at this, but hope it sounds okay. Feel free to email me any
corrections or improvements. Chords are at the bottom, and the chords in brackets
(Gmaj7) are optional - it sounds okay without them, but they just help it flow
from one chord to the next better. Enjoy!

Paper Aeroplane by KT Tunstall (Drastic Fantastic)Acoustic Version.

D   Dmaj7   G   Em   Gmaj7   D   X 2

Verse 1

D            Dmaj7                 G
Well this stone that I have swallowed
        Em   (Gmaj7)  D
isn't going down so well,
              Dmaj7                G
and this road that I have followed
    Em    (Gmaj7)  D
is leading me to hell.
       Dmaj7                G
You said it didn't matter
      Em      (Gmaj7)  D
but I think you're a liar.
     Dmaj7                G
Is this one of you talents
        Em    (Gmaj7)  A
that stokes the very fire.
A
It burns you.


Chorus.

          Em                  Gmaj7
Each time you try to live,
               A
and the Earth will turn below you,
        Em                                 Gmaj7                 D
the pressure is building and something has to give.


D   Dmaj7   G   Em   Gmaj7   D X 2

Verse 2

D               Dmaj7           G
And when I build you a steeple
Em  (Gmaj7) D
you say it's incomplete.
D              Dmaj7               G
Cause you need the whole cathedral
Em (Gmaj7)     D
to satisfy your needs.
D         Dmaj7          G
You're like a paper aeroplane
Em  (Gmaj7)           D
that never seems to land.
D        Dmaj7              G
Flying blind through anything,
Em       (Gmaj7) A
straight into the hand that chokes you.

Chorus.

D   Dmaj7   G   Em   Gmaj7   D
Bridge

D   Dmaj7   G   Em   Gmaj7   D
Something has to give
D            Dmaj7    G
Something has to give
Em         Gmaj7    D
Something has to give

when it says "it burns you"
it should be
|A | D A |
fire that burns you

it's the same with "the earth will turn below you"

Also "D Dmaj7 G Em Gmaj7 D X 2"
sould be "D Dmaj7 G6/B G X2"

the G6/B is
e----0----|
b----0----|
g----0----|
d----0----|
a----1----|
e----X----|
