Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova Falling Slowly

from The Swell Season & "Once" OST
C
I don't know you,
 F
But I want you
C                  F
All the more for that.
 C
Words fall through me,
    F
And always fool me,
C             F
And I can't react.



 Am         G      F
Games that never amount 
    G                 Am
to more than they're meant
       G             F
will play themselves out.



 C                 F
Take this sinking boat 
              Am
And point it home, 
                 F
We've still got time.
 C                  F
Raise your hopeful voice,
              Am
You had the choice,
                F
You've made it now.


 C
Falling slowly
F
Eyes that know me 
C               F
And I can't go back.
 C
Moods that take me
F
And erase me,
C                 F
And I'm painted black.



 Am       G         F
You have suffered enough 
     G               Am
And warred with yourself,
      G             F
It's time that you won.



 C                 F
Take this sinking boat 
              Am
And point it home, 
                 F
We've still got time.
 C                  F
Raise your hopeful voice,
              Am
You had the choice,
                F
You've made it now.


Bridge: Am  G  F  G  Am  G  F


 C                 F
Take this sinking boat 
              Am
And point it home, 
                 F
We've still got time.
 C                  F
Raise your hopeful voice,
              Am
You had the choice,
                F
You've made it now.
 C               F
Falling slowly, sing 
          Am
Your melody, 
            F   C  F  Am  F
I'll sing along.
