Capo 4th Fret (To Match Recording)
Intro: (D) (Dsus4) (D) (Dsus4) (D)
(E) Don't get me wrong, I'm (A) doing all right.
(E) Can't you see I'm O(A)K?
(B) I'm not at home all a(E)lone every night,
(B) I'm out there dancing old (G) memories a(A)way.
But it wouldn't (D) hurt,
To have wings,
To (A) lift me above,
All the (D7) pain of the past,
And your (G) mind-wrecking love.
They (D) say time can fly,
Like a (A) magical thing,
But it (G) sure wouldn't (A) hurt to have (D) wings.
(E) I don't see things like (A) love any more;
The (E) rose-colored glasses are (A) gone.
(B) I won't be fooled like (E) I was before.
(B) I'm learning now, how to (G) fly on my (A) own.
(A) I'm gonna fly like an (Bm) eagle,
And (G) rise above it (A) all
No, it (G) sure wouldn't (A) hurt to have (D) wings.
