When I'm Up

by Great Big Sea

I am the fountain of affection
I'm the instrument of joy
And to keep the good times rolling
I'm the boy, I'm the boy
You know the world could be our oyster
You just put your trust in me
Cause we keep the good times rolling
Wait and see, wait and see
Oh wait and see! Oh oh

/ F C / Am F / - C / F G / F Am / - F / - C / F G / - Am / G F G /

There's exhultation, and there's sweet disintegration
A few discolourations, then it comes along
Up is why he chooses, the kisses and the bruises
There ain't nothing he refuses, then it comes along
It comes along, and I am lifted
I am lifted, I am lifted

/ Am G / F G / 1st / 2nd / F Am / F G /

    {refrain}
    When I'm up I can't get down
    Can't get down, can't get level
    When I'm up I can get down
    Get my feet back on the ground

    / F C / F G / 1st / 2nd /

    {refrain}

He just needs something to blind him, something to wind him up
It won't take long to find him when it comes on strong
Wise guys are grinning and the street lights are spinning
The night is just beginning when it comes on strong
It comes on strong, and I am lifted
I am lifted, I am lifted

    {refrain} x 2

[slow]
Oh it comes on strong and I am lifted
It comes on strong and I am lifted
I am lifted, I am lifted

/ F Am / / F G /

    { refrain } x 3, middle one acapella
