F
  The sun reflected in
      G
  The back of my eye.
F                               G
  I knocked my head against the sky.


Ab                                 C
  The dragonflies are busy buzzing me.
Ab                                 C
  A seahorse as if we were in the sea.


F
  Half way from coal
                G
  Half way from diamond.
F                                    G
  My fall knocked a mean chip out of me.
Ab                          C
  Gathering as far as I can reach.
Ab
  Perched up on a precipice
      C
  And this is what I've seen.

G
This is all I want,
           F    C
It's all I need.
G
This is all I am.
          F     C
It's everything,
G
This is all I want
           F   C
It's all I need

A bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree.
Doctorate in science and a theologians dream

The dragonflies are trying to lecture me.
The seahorses as if we were in the sea.

But this is all I want,
It's all I need.
This is all I am,
It's everything.
This is all I want,
It's all I need.

F
  Beat a drum for me
G
  Like a butterfly wing.
F
  Tropical storm across the ocean.

But don't explain I'm sure I'll want to know
Don't forget we're just half way from coal.

This is all I want,
It's all I need.
This is all I am,
It's everything.
This is all I want,
It's all I need.
