Balance Beam

Blue October

G  A6/7sus  C  Em  D

I haven't been quite the same
A6/7sus      C           Em                   D
So sure the story of my life would never change
G            A6/7sus         C
But in a bright-eyed way, she rinsed out the soap in my eyes
Em                           D
And wrote a song that I'm about to sing

G           A6/7sus C
She's a magnetic girl
Em                D
That I hardly even know
G                     A6/7sus  C
So this is not another love song
Just a list of things that I should know
And everyone should know that:

R: One. You got to take it kind of slowly
   Two. You got to hurry up and make your move
   G                                     D   C
   Three. You got to tell her how you're feeling
   And four. You got to be the perfect gentleman.
   C                                          G
   When you shake the walls, you got to make 'em bend, yeah
   You got to show her that she's the balance beam
   And I keep falling all around her fairy tale
   A6/7sus   C  Em  D
   her fairy tale

We took a walk in the rain.
I suggested, she confess
There's a heart nearby to cast the shame.
Stay cool, but I'm giddy like a school boy.
You got to handle with care this is not a toy.

Then gradually we touched.
And though our clothes were wet, we sat and smiled.
I never thought I'd smile so much
The first kiss always says the most

R: One. You got to take it kind of slowly...
