CAPO 2, standard tuning

rich-uk's version is already great. I just play this version because
1) I hate the B chord and have to practice it yet (I'm a beginner :-)
2) Playing the G and A chords as barre saves you switching the shapes too often, 
especially in the prechorus

Intro:
D    Bm  D    G
G    Bm  F#m   A

Verse 1:
D                   D         D                        D                 A
  It started with a low light,  next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed.
                      Bm        A                       A              D
And then they took my blood type,  they left a strange impression in my head.
                    D      D                         D                   A
You know that I was hopin',  that I could leave this starcrossed world behind.
                     Bm  A                      A
But when they cut me open,  I guess I changed my mind.

Prechorus 1:
        G      A               Bm       F#m
And you know I might have just flown too far
         G          A                  Bm              F#m     
from the floor this time, 'cos they're calling me by my name.
            G                          A            F#m            Bm
And they’re zipping white light beams, disregarding bombs and satellites.
A              A             A              A
  That was the turning point,  that was one lonely night.

Chorus 1:
D                       Bm          D                         G
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
G                     Bm                 F#m                A
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."

Verse 2:
D                      D        D                     D              A
  Well now I'm back at home and,  I'm looking forward to this life I live.
                    Bm      A               A              D
You know it's gonna haunt me,  so hesitation to this life I give.
                          D    D                           D                     A
You think you might cross over,  you're caught between the devil & the deep blue sea.
                   Bm  A                      A
You better look it over,  before you make that leap.

Prechorus 2:
        G        A           Bm        F#m
And you know I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   G         A           Bm        F#m
at night sometimes, that justify my claim.
        G                     A                        F#m        Bm
And the public don't dwell on my transmission, 'cos it wasn't televised.
A                A             A            A
  But it was the turning point,  oh, what a lonely night!

Chorus 2:
D                       Bm          D                         G
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
G                     Bm                 F#m                A
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."
D                       Bm          D                         G
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
G                     Bm                 F#m                A
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."

Bass Fill:
Bm   Bm   Bm   Bm
Bm   Bm   Bm   Bm

Middle Eight:
Bm            Bm               Bm        Bm
  My global position systems are vocally addressed.
Bm            Bm          Bm              Bm
  They say the Nile used to run from East to West.
Bm            Bm          G   A              G
  They say the Nile used to run,  from East to West.
    F#m         Bm        A
I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   D         Em      G       A
at night sometimes.

Chorus 3:
D                       Bm          D                         G
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
G                     Bm                 F#m                A
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."
D                       Bm          D                         G
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
G                     Bm                 G A                  D
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,    it's all in your mind."

               G    Bm  F#m   A

               D    Bm  D    G
It's all in my mind.
               G    Bm  F#m   A
It's all in my mind.
               D    Bm  D    G

               G    Bm  F#m   A
