Verse 1:
D               F
Sally Sparrow I wrote you a letter
   C                              G
To make you feel better 'bout the fact that I'm gone
         D                        F
I may be stuck in the past but my future is vast
         C                           G
Don't go looking for me girl, you've got to go on

      D                                  F
Don't think he's taking to you he's just on the TV
          C                               G
Well look past the Easter Egg and see the reality
  D                                F
a world of time and space inside a funny blue box
    C                              G         G        G
The angels are approaching and the front door is locked

Bridge:
           D  F  C  G
So don't blink,
               D  F  C  G
I said, don't blink

Chorus:
     D                                 F
Just look directly at them and they'll stay where they are
  C                                 G
I think they're crying anyway, they can't mean no harm
D                         F
My eyes are watering, I'm right on the brink
    C                       G
I'm sure nothing would happen if I were to-

Verse 2 - same chords as Verse 1 -:
The doctor isn't here this time this wont be a breeze
He's stuck in 1969 on your DVDs
Just listen very carefully to what he's got to say
Do not turn your back on them and don't look away

If they get inside the Tardis then the sun will go out
Just go down to the cellar and show them what you're about
They move faster than you could ever believe
Don't let the light go out and don't be naive

Bridge:
           D  F  C  G
So don't blink,
               D  F  C  G
I said, don't blink

Chorus:
     D                                 F
Just look directly at them and they'll stay where they are
  C                                 G
I think they're crying anyway, they can't mean no harm
D                         F
My eyes are watering, I'm right on the brink
    C                       G
I'm sure nothing would happen if I were to-

    F                          D
The future's coming quickly so please don't be scared
    C                              G
The answers will find you just make sure you're prepared
F                                   D
When you see the Doctor then you'll work out the link
    C                               G
But even though its ended please be sure not to blink
