Girl on the Wing  The Shins

Verse 1
[Bm]One wound-up punch of intuition,[D] lays flat my [E]whole take on us.
[Bm]You're the girl on the wing of a barnstormer, [D]the tital rabbit who [E]came of
age before her t[Bm]ime.
[Bm]We could have been [G]so good-natured [D]if i'd relented when y[A]ou insisted,
[Bm]but we've been back[G]ed against all nature's w[D]alls far too long[A].
[Bm]You felt abandoned[G] by me, I r[D]ecall the sunshine as [A]you were melting
[Bm]and through the co[G]medy softens the fal[D]l, they still hear u[A]s with their
[G]ears to the wall.
Verse 2
[Bm]I sold all my evil motives, [D]no icicles s[E]tuck in my hide.
[Bm]I'm through with riddles, i know we're l[D]ittle just help me feel w[E]arm
Before we take this [G]ride and let it slide, into the cracks where f[D]all and
winter collide. I su[G]rrender all my gall in a song of modern lo[D]ve.
[G]Rembember you're the one who summoned [D]me above any other kind.[A]
Bridge 2
[Bm]We could have been [G]so good-natured if you'[D]d relented when i'd[A] insisted,[Bm]
we take a[G] week off, let the garden gr[D]ow by its[A]elf, [Bm]
and let the glu[G]ttons fill themselves with[D] all the worst of the g[A]ory
And through the [G]comedy softens the[D] fall, we still fa[A]ll short.
Before we take this r[G]ide and let it slide into the cracks where fa[D]ll
and winter colide.
I surr[G]ender all my gall in a song of modern lo[D]ve.
[G]Remember you're the one who summoned m[D]e above any other kind. [A]
[G] [E]
