When I Fall  Barenaked Ladies



INTRO: D G A Bm G (x2)

I look straight in the [D]window,    [A]   try not to look [Bm]below   [G]
Pretend I'm not [D]up here,   [A]       I try counting [E]sheep    [G]
The sheep seem to [D]shower,  [A]  off this off[Bm]ice tower [G]
It's 9.8 [D]straight down, [A]   I can't stop my [E]knees.  [G]

CHORUS:
I wish I could f[Bm]ly, from this [A]building, from this [E]wall.   [G]
And if I should [Bm]try, would you [A]catch me, if I f[E]all.    [G]

My hands clench the[D] squeegee,  [A]   a seclar ro[Bm]sary    [G]
Hang onto your [D]wallet,  [A]   hang onto your r[E]ings.   [G]
I can't look[D] below me, [A]  something might[Bm] throw me.  [G]
I curse at the [D]windstorms,    [A]      that October [E]brings. [G]

I look in the [D]boardroom,  [A]   a modern Ph[Bm]araoh's tomb. [G]
I'd gladly swap [D]places,   [A]   if they care to [E]dive    [G]
They're lined up at[D] the window[A],      peer down i[Bm]nto limb[G]o
Frightened of j[D]umping,   [A]   in case they [E]survive.  [G]
I wish I could [G]step, from this scaf[A]fold,
Onto [Bm]soft green grass and [E]shopping malls,
or b[G]ed, with my [A]family, and my [Bm]pastor and my [A]grandfather
who's [E]dead. [G]
(softly) D A Bm G
Look straight in the mirror, watch it come clearer
I look like a pa[D]inter, beh[A]ind all the grease.[E]        [G]
But painting's [D]creating, [A]    and I'm just er[Bm]asing      [G]
A crystal clear [D]canvas,   [A]       is my master[E]piece.  [G]


CHORUS:
I wish I could f[Bm]ly, from this [A]building, from this [E]wall.   [G]
And if I should [Bm]try, would you [A]catch me, if I f[E]all.    [G]

I wish I could f[Bm]ly, from this [A]building, from this [E]wall.   [G]
And if I should [Bm]try, would you [A]catch me, if I f[E]all.    [G]

When I [D]fa[A]ll[Bm]...[G]     [D]Wh[A]en[E] I[G] fall.... mmmmmm
