Getting to the Point
Electric Light Orchestra
from "Balance of Power"

Transcribed by Chris Gaasch


[Verse]
               G               G/B
It's out of control (out of control)
            C             D
And there's nothing I can do now
          G               G/B
Out of control (out of control)
         C                  D
Swimming softly through the blue now
    Bm                Em
And look beyond these walls
       Am      Bm        C
As the meaning starts to dawn
     D                  Em D C
It's getting to the point
               G
Getting to the point.


[Verse]
               G                   G/B
It's out of control (nothing I can do)
       C                  D
Like a fire that keeps on burning
           G                     G/B
And nobody knows (what I'm going through)
        C                    D
And the thoughts just keep returning
    Bm             Em
And all you had to say
         Am     Bm      C
Was that you were gonna stay
     D                  Em D C
It's getting to the point
     D              G
It's getting to the point.


[Chorus]
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
                 G/B
Where nobody can stop it now
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
        G/B  
Of no return
    G        D     C
And all that I can do
             G        Em
Is stand and watch it now
         Am    Bm    D
Watch it burn, burn, burn

     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
                  G/B
Where reasons are forgotten
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
             G/B
Where no one knows
    G        D     C
And all that I can do
           G  Em
Is say I'm sorry
               Am  Bm C
But that's the way it goes...
D              G
Getting to the point.


[Verse]
   G       G/B
Forever
      C          D
Is a long, long way
   G      G/B
Forever
             C      D            
Takes your breath away
     Bm7           Em             Am Bm  C
I'd like to talk about it, try to understand
     D                  Em D C
It's getting to the point
     D              G
It's getting to the point.


[Chorus]
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
                 G/B
Where nobody can stop it now
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
        G/B  
Of no return
    G        D     C
And all that I can do
             G        Em
Is stand and watch it now
         Am    Bm    D
Watch it burn, burn, burn

     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
                  G/B   
Where reasons are forgotten
     G       D      C
It's getting to the point
             G/B 
Where no one knows
    G        D     C
And all that I can do
           G  Em
Is say I'm sorry
               Am  Bm D
But that's the way it goes...

Sax Solo in Gmaj Pentatonic (over chorus chords):


[Outro]
                    G              Am     G/B
It's getting to the point (getting to the point)
C              G              Am     G/B
Getting to the point (getting to the point)
     C              G              Am     G/B
It's getting to the point (getting to the point)
C              G
Getting to the point.

A great song and the chords work fine. As well as guitar, I have tried the chords on Piano and they work well especially the G/B
