Birds  Elton John

[G]     [A]     [Bb]      [B]     [Bb]      [A]     [G]    [Fmaj7+9] [C] 
There's some[G] things I don't have now
[Bb]Some things I don't talk about    [Bbsus2]        [Bb]
These thin[C]gs are between myself and I                [G]
In my th[F]ick skull the joker  [C]   [Csus4] hides [G]
There's consequences I'm scared to taste
Cold hard truths I can't face
These days are different than the past
Reflections change in the looking glass

And ev[F]erywhere I look ther[C]e's something to[F/C] lear[C]n           [G]
A s[F]liver of truth from every bri[C]dge w[Csus4]e burn        [G]
A [F]hatful of qua[C]rters and a [F]naked so[C]ng      [G]
Don't an[F]swer the question[C] of where we   [D]belong        [G/D]    [D]

How come birds  [G]
Don't fall from the sky whe[C]n they die?          [G]
How come birds  [Eb]
Always look for a quiet pl[F]ace to hide
These wor[G]ds
Can't explain what I feel i[C]nside?      [G]
Like bi[Eb]rds I need a quiet[F] place to hide         [G]     [A]     [Bb]      [B]     [Bb]      [A]     [G]     [Fmaj7+9]           [C]
[G]     [A]     [Bb]      [B]     [Bb]      [A]     [G]    [Fmaj7+9] [C] 
These independent moves I make
This confidence I try to fake
You can hear the beating of my heart
But not a feather falling in the dark

And everything I hear never makes any sense
Another old prophet perched on the fence
A cupful of pencils and a self help guru
Don't answer the question of what I am to you
[F]    [C]   [F/C]       [C]      [G]                
[F]    [C]   [D]        [G/D]     [D]
