Intro: Cm  Eb  Ab  Ab


Cm              Eb
my eyes are open wide
Ab
by the way
   Ab
i made it through the day
Cm            Eb
I watch the world outside
Ab
by the way
     Ab
I’m leaving out today


Bb            Cm                        Ab
I just saw halley's comet she waved                  
Eb                         Bb             Bb
why are you always running in place
            Cm                       F
even the man in the moon disappeared
     F             
somewhere in this stratosphere


Cm        Eb                       F
tell my mother tell my father
                     Ab
I have done the best I can
Cm              Eb
to make them realize
         F
this is my life
                 Ab
I hope they understand
Cm         Eb                   F
I am not angry I am just saying
  Ab
sometimes good bye is a second chance


Cm                Eb
please don't cry one tear for me
      Ab                 Ab
I'm not afraid of what I have to say
Cm            Eb   
this is my one and only voice
Ab                Ab
for today so listen close


Bb            Cm                        Ab
I just saw halley's comet she waved                  
Eb                         Bb             Bb
why are you always running in place
            Cm                       F
even the man in the moon disappeared
     F             
somewhere in this stratosphere


Cm        Eb                       F
tell my mother tell my father
                     Ab
I have done the best I can
Cm              Eb
to make them realize
         F
this is my life
                 Ab
I hope they understand
Cm         Eb                   F
I am not angry I am just saying
  Ab
sometimes good bye is a second chance

  1. While I was messing around with this song, I noticed that the F chord during “Even the man in the moon disappeared” doesn’t sound quite right… Try out an F7 chord there instead, it sounds much better! =)

  2. -3 is a lot easier :)

  3. On, this is my one and only voice
    for today so listen close

    It’s supposed to be this is my one and only voice so listen close it’s only for today
