Blue October "Balance Beam" Nice little song off of Consent to Treatment. It's pretty simple so I'm pretty sure this is right. Standard tuning G D C Em D e---3---x---0---x---2 a---3---3---1---x---3 d---0---0---0---0---2 g---0---4---2---2---0 b---2---5---3---2---x e---3---0---x---0---x Intro: G D C Em D (x2) G I haven't been quite the same. D C Em D So sure the story of my life will never change. G But in a bright eyed way. D C Rinsed out the soap in my eyes Em D and wrote a song that I'm about to sing. G D C Em D Cause it's about a girl that I hardley even know. G D C So this is not another love song. Em Just a list of thing that I should know D and everyone should know. Chorus G5 (One) You got to take it kind of slowly C5 (Two) You got to hurry up and make your move. G5 D5 C5 (Three) You got to tell her that she's pretty. G5 (Four) You got to be the perfect gentleman C5 You shake the wall you got to make it bend. G5 D5 You got to show her that she's the balance beam and I keep falling all around her fairy tale. (Repeat) We took a walk in the rain I suggested, she confessed there's a park nearby to cast that shame. Stay cool but I'm getting like a school boy. You got to handle with care this is not a toy. And gradually we touched. Although our close were wet we sat and smiled I never thought I'd smiled so much The first kiss always says the most.
