Verse: (with rhythm figure 1)
[D] [G]  
Baby's black balloon makes her fly
[D] [G]  
I almost fell into that hole in your life
[D] [G]  
And you're not thinking about tomorrow
(riff 1)
'cause you were the same as me
E D(type2)
But on your knees
[D-G-D-G]  
(verse)
A thousand other boys could never reach you
How could I have been the one
I saw the world spin beneath you
And scatter like ice from the spoon
That was your womb
Chorus:
[B] [A] [G] [D]  
Comin' down the world turned over
[B] [A] [G] [D]  
And angels fall without you there
[B] [A] [G] [D]  
And I go on as you get colder
[G] [A]  
Or are you someone's prayer
[D-G-D-G]  
(verse)
You know the lies they always told you
And the love you never knew
What's the things they never showed you
That swallowed the light from the sun
Inside your room
(chorus)
Comin' down the world turned over
And angels fall without you there
And I go on as you get colder
Bridge:
[F#-G-B-A]  
 
 F#-G B-A-G G-G-F#-E (slide up to G)

[F#] [G] [A]  
And there's no time left for losin'
When you stand they fall
(chorus)
Comin' down the world turned over
And angels fall without you there
And I go on as you get colder
All because I'm
(chorus)
Comin' down the years turn over
And angels fall without you there
And I'll go on to bring you home
All because I'm
[F]  
All because I'm
[E]  
And I'll become
[G] [D]  
What you became to me
