Intro: D, Gbm, C, EmEm chord


DD chord                       GbmGbm chord
  Theres traffic in the sky
                 CC chord                       EmEm chord
  And it doesn't seem to be getting much better
                      DD chord   
  Theres kids playing games on the pavement
          GbmGbm chord                      CC chord
  Drawing waves on the pavement mm-hm
                 EmEm chord                        DD chord
  Shadows of the planes on the pavement mm-hm 
                         GbmGbm chord
  It's enough to make me cry
                 CC chord                               EmEm chord
  But that don't seem like it would make it feel better
               DD chord              
  Maybe it's a dream and if i scream 
          GbmGbm chord
  It will burst at the seams 
       CC chord                          EmEm chord
  This whole place will fall into pieces 
                  AA chord   AbAb chord
  And then they'd say


GG chord                        AA chord
  Well how could we have known
                         DD chord           BmBm chord                 
  I'll tell them it's not so hard to tell
          GG chord
  Nah nah nah
                  AA chord  
  You keep adding stones
                 DD chord
  Soon the water will
                 BmBm chord
  Be lost in the well
  GG chord                  AA chord
  Mmmm mmmm


DD chord                      GbmGbm chord
  Puzzle pieces in the ground
      CC chord                       EmEm chord
  But no one ever seems to be digging 
                          DD chord                                 GbmGbm chord
  Instead they're looking up towards the heavens with their eyes on the 

  heavens
 

CC chord                                     EmEm chord
  Shadows on the way to the heavens
DD chord                        GbmGbm chord
  It's enough to make me cry 
                 CC chord                               EmEm chord
  But that don't seem like it would make it feel better 
                       DD chord                                 GbmGbm chord
  The answers could be found we could learn from digging down 
      CC chord                       EmEm chord
  But no one ever seems to be digging 
                 AA chord   AbAb chord
  Instead theyll say


GG chord                        AA chord
  Well how could we have known
                         DD chord           BmBm chord                 
  I'll tell them it's not so hard to tell
          GG chord

  You keep adding stones
                 DD chord

  Be lost in the well
  GG chord                  AA chord

      CC chord                    EmEm chord
  But no one ever seems to listen 
                             DD chord
  Theyre talking about their plans on the paper 
           GbmGbm chord
  Building up from the pavement 
CC chord                                  EmEm chord
  Shadows from the scrapers on the pavement 
DD chord                       GbmGbm chord
  Its enough to make me sigh 
                CC chord                               EmEm chord
  But that dont seem like it would make it feel better 
                     DD chord                            GbmGbm chord
  The words are all around but the words are only sounds 
      CC chord                    EmEm chord
  And no one ever seems to listen 
                 AA chord   AbAb chord
