When I Fall  Barenaked Ladies

"When I Fall" by the Barenaked Ladies
Tabbed by www.JaeFord.com
Capo on 4th fret.
[C] [G] [Am] [F]  
[F] I look straight in the [C]window[G], try not to look [Am]below[F]
Pretend I'm not up [C]here[G], I try counting [D]sheep[F]
But the sheep seem to [C]shower[G] off this office [Am]tower[F]
Nine-point-eight straight [C]dow[G]n I can't stop my [D]knees[F]
(Chorus)
I wish I could [Am]fly
From this [G]building
From this [D]wall[F]
And if I should [Am]try
Would you [G]catch me if I [D]fall?[F]
My hands clench the [C]squeegee[G], my secular [Am]rosary[F]
Hang on to your [C]wallet[G], hang on to your [D]rings[F]
Can't look be[C]low me;[G] something might [Am]throw me[F]
Curse at the wind[C]sto[G]rms that October [D]brings[F]
I look in the [C]boardroom;[G] a modern phar[Am]aoh's tomb[F]
I'd gladly swap [C]places,[G] if they care to [D]dive[F]
They're lined up at the [C]window[G], peer down into [Am]limbo[F]
They're frightened of [C]jumping[G], in case they sur[D]vive[F]
I wish I could [Am]step from this [G]scaffold
Onto [Em]soft green pastures, [F]shopping malls, or [Am]bed
With my [G]family and my [Em]pastor and my [Am]grandfather who's [D]Dead[F]
Look straight in the [C]mirror[G], watch it come [Am]clearer[F]
I look like a [C]painter,[G] behind all the [D]grease[F]
But paintings cre[C]ating,[G] and I'm just e[Am]rasing[F]
A crystal-clear [C]canvas[G] is my master[D]piece[F]
(Chorus 2x)
[C] [G] When I [Am]fall[F]
[C] [G] When I [Am]fall[F]
[C] [G] When I.[Am].. [F] oo[C]ommm
