    DbDb chord  FmFm chord  CmCm chord  EbEb chord
 
Verse:
AbAb chord                   AbAb chord         
  It started with a low light,
AbAb chord                        AbAb chord                 EbEb chord
  next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed.
                      FmFm chord        
And then they took my blood type,
EbEb chord                       EbEb chord              AbAb chord
  they left a strange impression in my head.
                    AbAb chord      
You know that I was hopin',
AbAb chord                         AbAb chord                   EbEb chord
  that I could leave this starcrossed world behind.
                     FmFm chord  
But when they cut me open,
EbEb chord                      EbEb chord
  I guess I changed my mind.
 
Pre-Chorus:
        DbDb chord      EbEb chord               FmFm chord       CmCm chord
And you know I might have just flown too far
         DbDb chord          EbEb chord                  FmFm chord              CmCm chord     
from the floor this time, 'cos they're calling me by my name.
            DbDb chord                          
And they’re zipping white light beams, 
EbEb chord            CmCm chord            FmFm chord
disregarding bombs and satellites.
EbEb chord              EbEb chord             EbEb chord              EbEb chord
  That was the turning point,  that was one lonely night.
 
Chorus:
AbAb chord                       FmFm chord          
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,
AbAb chord                         DbDb chord
  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
DbDb chord                     FmFm chord                 
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,
CmCm chord                EbEb chord
  it's all in your mind."
 
Verse:
AbAb chord                      AbAb chord        
  Well now I'm back at home and,
AbAb chord                     AbAb chord              EbEb chord
  I'm looking forward to this life I live.
                    FmFm chord      
You know it's gonna haunt me,
EbEb chord               EbEb chord              AbAb chord
  so hesitation to this life I give.
                          AbAb chord    
You think you might cross over,
AbAb chord                           AbAb chord                     EbEb chord
  you're caught between the devil & the deep blue sea.
                   FmFm chord  EbEb chord                      EbEb chord
You better look it over,  before you make that leap.
 
Pre-Chorus:
        DbDb chord        EbEb chord           FmFm chord        CmCm chord
And you know I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   DbDb chord         EbEb chord           FmFm chord        CmCm chord
at night sometimes, that justify my claim.
        DbDb chord                     EbEb chord                
And the public don't dwell on my transmission, 
        CmCm chord        FmFm chord
'cos it wasn't televised.
EbEb chord                EbEb chord             
  But it was the turning point,
EbEb chord            EbEb chord
  oh, what a lonely night!
 
Chorus:
AbAb chord                       FmFm chord          
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,
AbAb chord                         DbDb chord
  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
DbDb chord                     FmFm chord

  They say the Nile used to run from East to West.
