Paper Wings (Holroyd/Pritchard)

     Em
His crazy frame against the dawn
                            D (sus2)
His hungry leap and ragged fall
   Am               Em   D    C
A suicidal perch is now laid bare
    Am        B              Em
To searching eyes and empty stares

    Em
A fearful silence hits the crowd
                              D (sus2)
The air hangs heavy with the sound
     Am                       Em  D   C
Of useless wings against the morning sky
    Am      B                 Em
As paper yields before their eyes


     C
Oh, can you see him now?
 D                      Em
A broken man without a dream
           C
Oh, can you hear him now?
    D                      Em
A futile laugh above the screams
