...................

[Verse 1]
G#m                Bbm
 Every time I see a bird
B
Flying over my head
G#m                         Bbm    
 I get to thinking could be you
B
Coming down to check
G#m                   Bbm
...Every time I see a bird
B
Tumble out of the sky
C#     Ebm            B      Ebm    F#
Realize you’re still alive, still alive

[Verse 2]
G#m                      Bbm
Spend the summer on the train
B
 Passing cities in the night
G#m                Bbm
 Always planning my escape
     B
The golden church of lies
G#m                     Bbm
Didn’t need home like that till it died
B                       B
I was just a kid with wool in my eyes
C#      Ebm    B     Ebm    F#
Lot of life denied...............

[Chorus]
F#                       
 How’d you know I been dreaming
E
 Of dangerous things?
Ebm
 It’s five in the morning
E
 I’m fixing again
B 
 You appear at the window
Bm              Bb7
 And open your wings
Ebm           G#m
 Surprise, surprise
   G#m   Bbm   B                     G#m    Bbm  B
A little bird arrives, you’re still alive...........
G#m     Bbm    B
...................

[Verse 3]
G#m                    Bbm
 The other day I saw a bird
B
 Struggle in the wind
G#m                 Bbm
 Beaten black and blue
     B
Then rising up again
  G#m                 Bbm   
I want that fight to set me free
B       
We get close, but we don’t speak
   C#         Ebm     B    Ebm 
I know you’re still alive........

[Chorus]
F#
 How’d you know I been dreaming
E
 Of dangerous things?
Ebm
 It’s five in the morning
E
 I’m fixing again
B
 You appear at the window
Bm             Bb7
 And open your wings
Ebm           B
 Surprise, surprise
   G#m    Bbm    B                   F# 
A little bird arrives, you’re still alive

[Outro]
F#                                                 
(Just at the minute when I’m starting to break) Still alive
E
(Hand on the trigger and I’m starting to shake) Still alive
Ebm
(You fall from the sky with perennial grace)
E
(Bird outside my window) Still alive
F#
(These [?]) Still alive
E
(Seventeen hours feel like seventeen days) Still alive
Ebm
(You fall from the sky with perennial grace)
E                           B
(Bird outside my window)..............
