A Birds Song

Ingrid Michaelson

 DABm
 When I would play my song          
 GDA
 You used to sing along.    
 DABm
 I always seem to forget       
 GAD
 How fragile are the very strong.  

 DABm
 I'm sorry I can't steal you
 GDA
 I'm sorry I can't stay 
 DBbmBm
 So I put band-aids on your knees
 GAD
 And watch you fly away    

Chorus:
 GBmAD
 I'm sending you away tonight      
 GBmA
 I'll put you on a bird's strong wing   
 GBmAD
 I'm saving you the best way I know how        
 GAD
 I hope again one day to hear you sing            

(same as above)
Verse:
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

Chorus:
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
 GBbmBmDGD
 I hope again one day to see you bring your smile back around again
