LEVITATE by Lisa McCormick

VERSE 1:

......./C/....................../F/......
We walked across the water

.../C/..................../F/......
Tripping light like Jesus

....../Am/...................../F/......
We walked across the water

...../C/.................../G/.......
But no one would believe us

......./F/........................./C/.........
But that's alright, we'll hitch a ride

........./G/......./G/.......
Back into town

........./F/.............../C/......
And drink the Mar Azul

......................./G/......../G/......
And watch the sun go down

PRE-CHORUS:

./C/F/..../G/..../G/....
We are beautiful

./C/F/..../G/..../G/....
Everybody's beautiful

..../Am/..../F/.../G/...../G/...
It's all so crazy beautiful

/F/............/F/....
Why stay down?

/G/.........../G/......................
Why stay down when you can

CHORUS:

/C/G/../Dm/Dm/..
Levitate

/C/G/../Dm/Dm/..
Levitate

/C/G/../Dm/Dm/..
Levitate

VERSE 2:

.../C/..................../F/......
We'll tame two wild horses

.../C/..................../F/......
Ride all around the island

....../Am/...................../F/......
We'll tame two wild horses

...../C/.................../G/.......
As soon as we can find them

......./F/........................./C/.........
Until we do, we'll ride with you

........./G/......./G/.......
Back into town

........./F/.............../C/......
And dance the Mar Azul

......................./G/......../G/......
After the sun goes down

PRE-CHORUS:

./C/F/..../G/..../G/....
We are beautiful

./C/F/..../G/..../G/....
Everybody's beautiful

..../Am/..../F/.../G/...../G/...
It's all so crazy beautiful

/F/............/F/....
Why stay down?

/G/.........../G/......................
Why stay down when you can

Levitate

/C/G/../Dm/Dm/..
Levitate
