Falling slowly    (video)    (intro)

 

    C - F - C - F

 

   C                            F                     C                        F

1. I don’t know you, but I want you, all the more for that,

       C                                      F                        C                        - F

    words fall through me and always fool me, and I can’t react.

 

     Am               G           F            G                          Am

    Games that never amount to more than they’re meant,

             G                       F

    will play themselves out.

 

      C                          F                      Am                             F

    Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time,

     C                            F                          Am                                 F

    raise your hopeful voice you have a choice, you've made it known.

 

      C                    F                              C                             - F

2. Falling slowly, eyes that know me, and I can’t go back,

        C                            F                     C                                 - F

    moods that take me and erase me, and I'm painted black.

 

     Am           G               F               G                      Am

    You have suffered enough and warred with yourself,

          G                    F

    it's time that you won.

 

      C                          F                      Am                             F

    Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time,

     C                            F                          Am                                 F

    raise your hopeful voice you have a choice, you've made it known.

      C                    F                    Am                F

    Falling slowly, sing your melody, I'll sing it loud.

 

+ C - F - Am - F ....
