Birds Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin Available on the album Songs From The West Coast (This intro part is played in thrids. The eighth note and the third note in the scale The following two lines are written as the key the third is played on.) G A Bb B Bb A G Fmaj7+9 C G A Bb B Bb A G Fmaj7+9 C G There's some things I don't have now Bb Bbsus2 Bb Some things I don't talk about C G These things are between myself and I F C Csus4 G In my thick skull the joker hides There's consequences I'm scared to taste Cold hard truths I can't face These days are different than the past Reflections change in the looking glass F C F/C C G And everywhere I look there's something to learn F C Csus4 G A sliver of truth from every bridge we burn F C F C G A hatful of quarters and a naked song F C D G/D D Don't answer the question of where we belong G How come birds C G Don't fall from the sky when they die? Eb How come birds F Always look for a quiet place to hide G These words C G Can't explain what I feel inside? Eb F G A Bb B Bb A G Fmaj7+9 C Like birds I need a quiet place to hide G A Bb B Bb A G Fmaj7+9 C These independent moves I make This confidence I try to fake You can hear the beating of my heart But not a feather falling in the dark And everything I hear never makes any sense Another old prophet perched on the fence A cupful of pencils and a self help guru Don't answer the question of what I am to you Solo: F C F/C C G F C Csus4 G F C F C G F C D G/D D Copyright (c) Mark van Gerven Netherlands
