Too Many Angels

Jackson Browne

 FmEbDbAb
 Looking through some photographs I found inside a book.                          
 FmEbDbAb
 I was taken by a photograph of you.              
 FmEbDbAb
 There were one or two you that I know you would've liked a little more.          
 FmEbDbAb
 But they didn't show your spirit quite as true.  
 EbAb
 You were turning round to see who was behind you.                        
 EbAb
 And I took your childish laughter by surprise.                           
 AbFm
 And at the moment my camera happened to find you.                        
 Db-C-BbAb
There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes.                   
 FmEbDb
 Now the things that I remember seem so distant and so small.                     
 Ab
 FmEbDbAb
 Though it hasn't really been that long of time.                          
 FmEbDbAb
 What I was seeing wasn't what was happening at all.                      
 FmEbDbAb
 All though for a while our paths did seem to climb.                              
 Eb
And when you see though loves illusion there lies the danger.                    
 Ab
 EbEb/DbEbEb/Db
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool.                           
 AbFm
 And you go running off in search of a perfect stranger.                          
 DbBbmAbDb
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life,                             
 Db-C-BbAbAbsus4
 Like a fountain from a pool.                     

Chorus1:
 DbEbE/EbFmEb
  Fountain of sorrow, Fountain of life.                           
 DbEbE/Eb
  You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight.                     
 FmEb
 DbEbE/EbFm
  You've had to hide sometimes and now you're all right.                          
 Eb
E A -G# -F# E Esus4 (X2)
And it's good to see your smiling face tonight.

(Interlude1: C#m,B,A,E) x2

 FmEbDbAb
 Now for you and me it couldn't be that had to reach our dreams.                  
 FmEbDbAb
 But that magic feeling never seems to last.      
 FmEbDb
 Well the future's there for anyone to change, but still you know it seems,       
 Ab
 FmEbDbAb
 It would be easier sometimes to change the past.                         
 EbAb
 I'm just one or two year and couple of changes behind you.               
 EbAb
 In my lessons love that's pain and heartaches good                       
 AbFm
 Well if you feel to free and you need something to remind you.                   
 DbBbmAbDb
There's this loneliness bringing in from your life,                              
 Db-C-BbAbAbsus4
 Like a fountain from a pool.                     

Chorus1:

Interlude2: C#m, B, A, E, B7, C#m, D9th, A(barr), B(barr)

Chorus2:
 DbEbE/EbFmEb
 Fountain of sorrow, Fountain of life.                            
 DbEbE/Eb
 You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight.                      
 FmEb
 DbEbE/EbFm
 You've had to struggle, you've had to fight.                                     
 Eb
 DbEbE/EbFm
 To keep understanding and compassion in sight.                                   
 Eb
 DbEbE/EbFm
 You could be laughing at me, you've got the right.                               
 Eb
 DbEbE/EbFm
 But you go on smiling, so clear and so bright.                                   
 Eb
