Verse:
F
I don't do well if I'm kept behind an office
C                        Em
desk inside it makes me lose my mind
              F                       
Which wanders endlessly where all the birds fly freely with their
Em                      G
silhouettes and perfect symmetry

Chorus:
           C
I've got a pocketful of poetry
           Am                 
I've got a head full of songs, a heart with wings
             F              G                   C
You couldn't tie me down to anything and that's enough for me

Verse:
F
I draw doodles of eccentric faces in the
C                 Em
margin spaces of important papers
        F  
Then I hand them in with a comedic grin
Em                      G
You ask if I need help, oh where do I begin?

Chorus:
           C
I've got a pocketful of poetry
           Am                 
I've got a head full of songs, a heart with wings
             F              G                   C
You couldn't tie me down to anything and that's enough for me

Bridge:
Am
People are good, loving, they tell me
F
Do as you should, all will be well they say
Em
Life is a test, please give the best answer
F
a b of c, pick one instantly
G
What if there's so much more to me?

Chorus -x3-:
           C
I've got a pocketful of poetry
           Am                 
I've got a head full of songs, a heart with wings
             F              G                   C
You couldn't tie me down to anything and that's enough for me

    I know this has noting to do with this song, though I absolutely love it!!!! But does anyone know the chords to a song entitled “Break the Distance” by Ashton Edminster? Both these songs mean SOOO much to me and it would be amazing to have the chords to both!

  2. If you like this song check out Mindy Gledhill’s other ones
