[Verse 1]

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

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


[Hook]

G                       A                  Bm7
and all that noise, all that sound
G                       A                  Bm7
all these pieces that i have found
G                                                       Bm
and the earth is gone flying at the speed of sound
F#m                         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

[Verse 2]

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


[Hook]

G                       A                  Bm7
and all that noise, all that sound
G                       A                  Bm7
all these pieces that i have found
G                                                               Bm
and the earth is gone flying at the speed of sound
F#m                         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
F#m                         G
if you could see it then you'd understand

D


[Bridge]

G                       A                  Bm7                          E7
all those signs I knew what they meant something you can't invent
G                       A                  Bm7                          E7
something [...], something [...] ooh

G                                                               Bm
words go flying at the speed of sound
F#m                         G
to show how it all began


[Hook]

G                                                               Bm
birds came flying from the underground
F#m                         G
if you could see it then you'd understand
F#m                         G
oh, when you see it then you'll understand

G

everything's cool except for the chorus. i listened to it and i think these are the chords:

G Bm
and the earth is gone flying at the speed of sound
D2 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


i've listened to the chorus a dozen times and i'm confident that's it. give me sum feedback.
