[G]Life was fun, life was great
[C]til I made my big mistake
[G]oh no, it never happen to
[D]me
[G]life was short & life was sweet
[C]I was thinking as I hit the street
[D]I could hardly believe it, I could scarcely conceive it, I had
[C]Gone Out the Window I had
[G]Gone Out the Window I had
[D]Gone Out the Window[G]
[G]She look fine, she looked great
[C]and so we made our big mistake
[G]I swear I swear I swear it'd never happen to
[D]her
[G]But the pavement knocked her head around as she
[C]hit the solid concrete ground from
[D]thirty flights above and she was thirty something loving nothing
[C]Gone Out the Window She had
[G]Gone Out the Window She had
[D]Gone Out the Window[G]
[C]Catch me I am f[G]alling
[C]catch me I am f[G]all[D]ing
[G]He was smart, he was wise
[C]He profoundly philosiphized
[G] [D]  
[E]mpathy for all humanity
[G]One day by an open window there's a note that said
[C]"I've gone out the window, and I'm dead"
[D]He said yes to life for all his life but then one day he said
(no chord)
"No, I gotta go"
[C]Out the Window here I
[G]Go Out the Window here I
[D]go Out the Window[G]
[C]Catch me I am f[G]alling,
[C]catch me I am f[G]all[D]ing
[C]Catch me I have [G]fallen
[C]catch me I have [G]fal[D]len

(Go out the window We all)
(Go out the window)
(Go out the window We all)
(Go out the window We all)
(Go out the window We all)
(Go out the window)
[C]Catch me we are
(Go out the window We all)
[G]Falling
(Go out the window We all)
[C]Catch me we are
(Go out the window We all)
[G]Falli[D]ng
(Go out the window)
[C]Catch me we are
(Go out the window We all)
