[INTRO]
Gm
[VERSE 1]
Gm          Bb            Eb
How it must feel to be a bird
Gm        Bb         Eb
Roamin' lonely over sea air
Gm           Bb           Eb
How it must feel to be a bird
Gm        Bb          Eb
London, Paris, underneath
Eb
And I'll wait on my own
Gm  Bb  Eb
(Ooh, hmm, ooh)

[INSTRUMENTAL]
 Gm Bb Eb

[CHORUS]
    Bb/D Eb                   Gm              F
And I couldn't tell you enough that I'm sorry
   Bb/D  Eb                    Gm                   F
And no, you couldn't tell me enough that you love me
                         Bb/D                  Eb
But she's bringin' the moon and stars to me
                 Gm F
Damn permanent reverie
                 Bb/D                   Eb
And even though this life, this love is brief
                         Gm     F
I've got some people who carry me
 
[VERSE 2]
            Gm                                  Bb
Wasn't it love as soon as we knew each other properly?
               Eb
Livin' 'bout half right 'til a certain person got to me
              Gm                                 Bb
Nothin' is secret, everythin's sacred, how it ought to be
               Eb
Under the moonlight on a clear night
Eb
On rooftops is where I want to be

Gm                                               Bb
Sometimes I'm like a child, that's somethin' I can't release
               Eb
Dreams of her comin' home, sweet home
Eb
And I'm tellin' you home is so sweet

       Gm                                       Bb
Said you reminded me of the summertime, and I still mean that
        Eb
In a full room, I'm the only one she's smilin' at

                 Gm                               Bb
So wouldn't you let me know if you were thinkin' less of me?
                    Eb
That's what she asked me
Eb
What was promised, what we both agreed
                          Gm
But truthfully, if you ever go
Gm                       Bb
You'll drop me straight to Hell, the 7th circle
Bb         Eb
And I was talkin' with you earlier
Eb                                       Gm
We were open and vulnerable, it was wonderful

Gm   Bb                              Eb        Gm Bb Eb
I, I used to dream that you would talk to me
Eb                                   
I used to dream that you would talk to me

    Bb/D Eb                   Gm              F
And I couldn't tell you enough that I'm sorry
   Bb/D  Eb                    Gm                   F
And no, you couldn't tell me enough that you love me
                         Bb/D                  Eb
But she's bringin' the moon and stars to me
                 Gm F
Damn permanent reverie
                 Bb/D                   Eb
And even though this life, this love is brief
                         Gm     F
I've got some people who carry me
  
[VERSE 3]
                Bb/D
You know that feelin' 
                            Eb
When you think your heart is gonna come 
                           Gm F
Right out through your shirt?
            Bb/D 
Get it a couple times a year
                 Eb                       Gm  F
But I've been gettin' it more often with her
               Bb/D 
Now when I'm face to face with death, 
              Eb
I'll grab his throat
Eb                          Gm F
And ask him, "How does it hurt?"
                      Bb/D                     Eb
Up in those golden moments, growin' old too quickly
                     Gm F
Was he thinkin' of her?
 
[OUTRO]
                         Bb/D                  Eb
But she's bringin' the moon and stars to me
                 Gm F
Damn permanent reverie
                 Bb/D                   Eb
And even though this life, this love is brief
                         Gm     F
I've got some people who carry me
