C
I’m lying here on the floor
              Cmaj7
Just like the man on the yellow cone
   C7
I guess the floor was wet
       F
So I’m cold and I’m all alone
          C
Cuz I was running down the stairs
         Cmaj7
I didn’t think that I could fall
    C7
But gravity took over me
      F
And I crumpled like a ball
       C         Cmaj7   C7          F         F7
But if you would pick me up, I’d be obliged
C               Cmaj7   C7      F    F7
Dust me off and push my hair aside
           C                          Cmaj7
Well it’s later than I thought, and I thought it was pretty late
        C7                        F
I guess everyone’s asleep, wonder why I’m still awake
        C                              Cmaj7
I could fall asleep right here with my hands under my head
          C7
There’s a body in the stairwell
         F
Call the cops, I think she’s dead
       C         Cmaj7   C7           F         F7
But if you would pick me up, I’d be obliged
C               Cmaj7    C7      F    F7
Dust me off and push my hair aside

C Cmaj7 C7 F
C Cmaj7 C7 F

C
Well I can’t lie
   Cmaj7
Perhaps I didn’t trip
       C7
I been having troubles lately
          F
And I got something to admit
           C
See, I was standing at the top
Cmaj7
Thinkin’ bout the earth
             C7
It’s been so hard to just keep livin’
     F
So I thought it might be worth it if
 C        Cmaj7   C7           F         F7
You would pick me up, I’d be obliged
C               Cmaj7    C7    F    F7
Dust me off and push my hair aside
                  C
And kiss me good-bye
