        F11/C     C7     F11/C     C7

        VERSE 1
             F11/C           C7
        If I knew what I was after
              F11/C            C7
        I'd remember where I'd been
                 Eb                F7
        If I was sure of something better
            C7      Gadd2
        I'd go, I'd go

        VERSE 2
        But I am just another picture
        And I watch myself like you
        I imagine what you're thinking
        I know, I know

Db       Bb     Db        Bb
Ten cent wings, I'll take two
Bbm            Fm               Eb             Ab
Pin them to my sweater and I'll sail above the blue
Db       Bb     Db        Bb
Ten cent wings, tried and true
Bbm           Fm              Eb             Ab  Gb  Aadd2
Orbiting like satellites I'll sail away with you

        VERSE 3
        I will love across the borders
        I will wait until it's dark
        And I will fly and you'll be with me
        My wings, your heart

        VERSE 4
        Then our memory may fail us
        And our language will go too
        But the shooting stars will catch our
        Celestial view


        Ab          F7   Ab         F7
    But I'll never tell, I'll never say
    Fm         Cm      Bbsus2
    I'll never be that brave
