Getting to the Point  Electric Light Orchestra

from "Balance of Power"
Transcribed by Chris Gaasch
Verse:
It's out of con[G]trol (out of con[G/B]trol)
And there's [C]nothing I can [D]do now
Out of con[G]trol (out of con[G/B]trol)
Swimming [C]softly through the [D]blue now
And [Bm]look beyond these [Em]walls
As the [Am]meaning [Bm]starts to [C]dawn
It's [D]getting to the poi[(Em-D-C)]nt
Getting to the [G]point.
Verse:
It's out of con[G]trol (nothing I can [G/B]do)
Like a [C]fire that keeps on [D]burning
And nobody [G]knows (what I'm going [G/B]through)
And the [C]thoughts just keep re[D]turning
And [Bm]all you had to [Em]say
Was that [Am]you wer[Bm]e gonna [C]stay
It's [D]getting to the poi[(Em-D-C)]nt
It's [D]getting to the [G]point.
Chorus:
It's [G]getting [D]to the [C]point
G/B(no 3rd)
Where nobody can stop it now
It's [G]getting [D]to the [C]point
G/B(no 3rd)
Of no return
And [G]all that [D]I can [C]do
Is stand and [G]watch it [Em]now
Watch it [Am]burn, [Bm]burn, [D]burn
It's [G]getting [D]to the [C]point
G/B(no 3rd)
Where reasons are forgotten
It's [G]getting [D]to the [C]point
G/B(no 3rd)
Where no one knows
And [G]all that [D]I can [C]do
Is say I'm [G]sor[Em]ry
But that's the [Am]way [Bm]it [C]goes...
[D]Getting to the [G]point.
Verse:
Forever
Is a long, long way
Forever
Takes your breath away
I'd like to talk about it, try to understand
It's getting to the point
Getting to the point.
Chorus:
It's getting to the point
Where nobody can stop it now
It's getting to the point
Of no return
And all that I can do
Is stand and watch it now
Watch it burn, burn, burn
It's getting to the point
Where reasons are forgotten
It's getting to the point
Where no one knows
And all that I can do
Is say I'm sorry
But that's the [Am]way [Bm]it [D]goes...
Sax Solo in Gmaj Pentatonic (over chorus chords):
Ending:
It's getting to the [G]point (getting [Am]to the [G/B]point)
[C]Getting to the [G]point (getting [Am]to the [G/B]point)
It's [C]getting to the [G]point (getting [Am]to the [G/B]point)
[C]Getting to the [G]point.
