A Am E A Am

E            E5+           E6             E7              A
When I was a little child, I once found a bird lying on the ground.
   Am              E          A Am
It would not ever fly, again.
   E               E5+            E6            E7              A
I held the bird up in my hands, I shed my tears over the lovely song
         Am              E      A Am
that not longer could be heard.

C#m                  A    (2x) 
Uhh...Never learn to fly

      E            E5+            E6              E7             A
With dirty hands I dug a hole and gently laid the bird to rest in soil:
  Am                        E     A Am
A wound in the tear stained mud.
   E                   E5+           E6           E7
My tears wore rain as I revealed the secrets of a tree.
          A        Am                   E       A Am
A cross of bark to speak through wooden grains:

C#m                  A    (2x) 
Uhh...Never learn to fly

  F#m               A/E             D#m7b5          D7+
I sang a song which I remembered my grandma used to sing
    C#m            B4               F#/Bb  A
For me, when I was sick and laid in bed.
       F#m                  A/E          D#m7b5      D7+
Then I cursed that day for showing me my own mortality
    C#m              B4                 F#/Bb   A
For then I knew that all that lives turns cold.  
A    B   Bbm  F# Fm D# D#m C#
Cold and dead...
   C#m A   B    A   B      A     B       C#m
...and now time has passed by beneath my wings.

C#m A C#m A C#m A C#m C G/B

That was then I'm older now,
but still I can't forget that rainy day.
I raged against the ending times,
though some day soon my son will maybe
Find the tree I cleansed of skin, 
no chain-sling will ever climb it's rotten limbs.
And when the time has come for me to die,
Cm                        C#m  A
I want to lie beside that bird.

C#m A

C#m                  A    (2x) 
Uhh...Never learn to fly

E            E5+            E6             E7               A
When I was a little child, I once found myself dying on the ground
    Am                 E
and now I'll never... Fly...

There's actually a version on their "Hereafter" demo that's played on guitar instead of piano. Same exact notes as the piano, just on a guitar instead :O

Gonna have to play this later, since it's kind of late here, but I appreciate that this song is finally given some attention!
