Verse


F                        Ab
It's the shadow in the dark

F                       Ab
It's the silver in the park

F                 Ab
It's the broken, faded bird

                         Eb	 F
you've learned to call your heart

                         Ab
itís not a border that you can see

F
just as plain as you or me

                      Ab
I can't throw the lock back

Eb                 Db   F
and I don't have the key

Verse

F                Ab
It hovers in the living room

F               Ab
just above the door

F                     Ab
it whistles while it hangs there

                          Eb   F
feathers dripping from every pore

                              Ab
they show the spectacle of falling

Eb               Db  F
and settle to the floor

                             Ab
they show the spectacle of falling

Eb               Db   F
and settle to the floor
