A Birds Song  Ingrid Michaelson

[D]When I would play m[A]y song         [Bm]
[G]You used to sing al[D]ong.   [A]
[D]I always seem t[A]o forget      [Bm]
[G]How fragile are t[A]he very strong. [D]

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

[G]I'm sending you awa[Bm]y toni[A]ght     [D]
[G]I'll put you on a bird'[Bm]s strong wing  [A]
[G]I'm saving you t[Bm]he best wa[A]y I know how       [D]
[G]I hope again one day to he[A]ar you sing           [D]

(same as above)
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

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]I hope again one day to[Bbm] see you bring your smi[Bm]le back around [D]again          [G]             [D]
