	 A	Bm	     Amaj7   Bm
	Is my world not falling down
	  A	Bm     Amaj7    Bm
	I’m in pieces on the ground
	    NC        Bm
	And my eyes aren’t open
						A   Bm  Amaj7  Bm (like intro)
	And I’m standing on my knees

(chorus)
  A	E		      Bm
But if crying and holding on
	D			 Bm
And flying on the ground is wrong
	       A		 A+
Then I’m sorry to let you down
	D
But you’re from 
 Bm
My side of town
	   A		Bm   Amaj7   Bm
And I’ll miss you
	  A          Bm    Amaj7    Bm		
	Turn me up or turn me down
	   A	    Bm   Amaj7     Bm
	Turn me off or turn me ‘round
	    Bm
	I wish I could have met you in a place
					A Bm Amaj7 Bm
	Where we both belong 

(chorus) (on last line hold on A, omit Bm, Amaj7 and Bm;
                             go straight from A to bridge)

BRIDGE:
	F           G                Em		Am
Sometimes I feel like I’m just a helpless child
            F            G	     C
Sometimes I feel like a king
  E
But, baby
   Amaj7           Bm	    Amaj7
Since I have changed
   Bm		      Amaj7   D (tap guitar top 2x w/finger)  D (repeat taps)
I can’t take nothing home

	   A     Bm        Amaj7   Bm
	City lights at a country fair
	   A       Bm         Amaj7     Bm
	Never shine but always glare
              A      Bm
	If I’m bright enough to see you
				A         Bm    Amaj7   Bm
	You’re just too dark to care

(chorus) (end last chorus on held A chord)
