Birds

Elton John

 GABbBBbAGFmaj7+9C
 G
There's some things I don't have now
 BbBbsus2Bb
 Some things I don't talk about             
 CG
These things are between myself and I                 
 FCCsus4G
In my thick skull the joker      hides  

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

 FCF/CCG
And everywhere I look there's something to learn            
 FCCsus4G
A sliver of truth from every bridge we burn         
 FCFCG
hatful of quarters and a naked song       
 FCDG/DD
Don't answer the question of where we   belong             

 G
How come birds   
 CG
Don't fall from the sky when they die?           
 Eb
How come birds   
 F
Always look for a quiet place to hide
 G
These words
 CG
Can't explain what I feel inside?       
 EbFGABbBBbAGFmaj7+9C
Like birds I need a quiet place to hide                                                          

 GABbBBbAGFmaj7+9C

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
