A Em D A Em D

    A                 Em
how long before I get in 
                             D
before it starts, before I begin 
    A                 Em
how long before you decide 
                              D
before I know what it feels like 
      A                 Em
where to, where do I go 
                                       D
if you never tried then you'll never know 
    A                    Em
how long do I have to climb 
                                       D
up on this side of this mountain of mine 

A Em D A Em D

     A                   Em
look up, I look up at night 
                                      D
planets are moving at the speed of light 
     A                Em
come up, up in the trees 
                                              D
every chance that you get is a chance you seize 
    A                Em
how long am I can stand 
                             D
with my head stuck under the sand 
     A                    Em
I'll start before I can stop 
                                      D
or before I see things the right way up 

G           A                   Bm
   all that noise, all that sound 
G             A                Bm
  all those places that i got found 

CHORUS:
    G                      Bm
and birds go flying at the speed of sound 
   D                 G
to show how it all began 
G                          Bm
birds come flying from the underground 
             F#m                         G
if you could see it then you'd understand 

A Em D A Em D

  A                       Em
ideas that you'll never find
                                  D 
all the inventors could never design
    A                       Em 
the buildings that you put up 
                          D
Japan and China all lit up 
    A                       Em
the sign that I couldn't read 
                                D
all the light that I couldn't see 
    A                         Em
somethings you have to believe 
                                   D
but others are puzzles, puzzling me 

G           A                   Bm
   all that noise, all that sound 
G             A                Bm
  all those places that i got found 

CHORUS

D

G               A                       Bm
 all those signs   I knew what they meant 
              Ddim
something you can't invent 
G              A                  Bm
 Some get made,  and some get sent
Ddim
ooh 

CHORUS

            F#m                     G         
Oh when you see it then you'll understand

I'm pretty sure that there should be a G chord between every Em and D in the verse. (I'm basing this on my memory of the song as I play along with your notation- not on actually playing along with the CD as I would have to to be 100% sure). Yours is definitely the best posted here though- thanks for saving me some time!

The G is unecessary. I've checked, and he is right.
