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

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