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

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