[Verse 1] 
Won't you l[C]ook up at the s[F]kyline
At the m[F]ortar, block, and [G/E]glass
And c[F]heck out the [F/F#]reflections in my [F/G]eyes? [G]
You see they [C]always used to [F]be there
Even w[C]hen this all was [G/E]grass
And I [F]sang and danced [F/F#]about a high-[F/G]rise [G]
And you were [F]laughing at
My [G]helmet hat[(Bass)-], [/C] [/B] [/A] [/G]

and I say:
Am /E Caug/A /E
I pushed you 'cause I loved you guys
I [C/A]didn't [/E]real[F#dim7/A]ize
[/E]you weren't [G]having fun [F/C] [C] [F/C] [C]
and I [F]dragged you up the stairs
and I [G]told you to fly

[Intro pt1] 
[Verse 3] 
now you [C]take this all for [F]granted
you take the [C]mortar, block, and [G/E]glass
and you [F]forget the speech and [F/F#]moved the [F/G]stone [G]

[G]So you can laugh all you [C]want [G/C]to
HUGE piano solo.
