[Intro]
Em Dsus2/F# G Am
Em Dsus2/F# G Am

[Verse 1]
Em           Dsus2/F#             G            Am
    The baby won't stop screaming,   there are holes in the ceiling. 
Em            Dsus2/F#         G            Am                  Em
    We're all running on empty,   all I can think about is leaving.
             Dsus2/F#    G                Am                   Em
The lift's beyond repair,    screw faces, head down, take the stairs
                      Dsus2/F#       G
And soon I'm gonna be floating away.
         Am                 C/G
Do you remember you used to say...

[Chorus 1]
C/G                                 G
     What'll it be like when we get older? 
          D             Em                Dsus2/F#       C/G
We can be far away from here, we're going to the moon my dear.
C/G                             G                 D             Em       Dsus2/F#       
     I see the spaceman over my shoulder, wave to earth and disappear.
 G        Am
Floating away.
Em  Dsus2/F#  G        Am
             Floating away.

[Verse 2]
Em          Dsus2/F#        G            Am
   I got a job in a kitchen,  till I got sick of their bitching. 
Em          Dsus2/F#           G            Am          Em
   Future seemed like fiction.  I'm on an intergalactic mission
                      Dsus2/F#       G                              Am                    Em
but back on earth the time ticked on.  I looked around and wondered where had my spaceman gone?
               Dsus2/F#              G                          Am         
Like all those promises of childhood,  if I could find a way to keep them like I should, you know I would,
                                      C/G
Instead of floating away every time I could.

[Chorus 2]
C/G                                 G
     What'll it be like when we get older? 
          D             Em                Dsus2/F#       C/G
We can be far away from here, we're going to the moon my dear.
C/G                             G                 D             Em  
     I see the spaceman over my shoulder, wave to earth and disappear.
                Dsus2/F#     C/G
I can't breathe at this atmosphere.
                            G                 B
Is it just me or did it get colder? We can be far away from...

[Bridge]
D Em D A
Here.
D Em B
Here.
D Em D A
Here.
D Em B
Here.
[bass walkdown A, G, F#]

[Break]
Em Dsus2/F# G Am
Em Dsus2/F# G Am

[Verse 3]
Em          Dsus2/F#               G        Am
   The baby stopped it's screaming,   am I awake or dreaming?
Em             Dsus2/F#          G                        Am
   The time is different up here   and even though you're gone I feel you near.
Em            Dsus2/F#        G                  Am                  Em
   And so for what it's worth,   there's nothing left for me down on earth.
              Dsus2/F#         G            Am                 C/G
I didn't even notice you went away, but I remember you used to say...

[Final Chorus]
                               G
What'll it be like when we get older? 
          D             Em                Dsus2/F#       C/G
We can be far away from here, we're going to the moon my dear.
C/G                             G                 D              C/G
     I see the spaceman over my shoulder, wave to earth and disappear,
C/G                                          G               D                 Em
     If I could have one more chance to just hold her, maybe I could face this fear, 
                Dsus2/F#     C/G
I can't breathe at this atmosphere.
C/G                              G
     And is it just me or did it get colder? 
       D                 B                                                              Em  Dsus2/F#
Lying alone it's all so clear, and from up here, I love how tiny down there everything appears. 

 G         Am  Em Dsus2/F#
Floating away.
 G         Am  Em Dsus2/F#
Floating away.
 G         Am  Em Dsus2/F#
Floating away.
 G         Am  Em
Floating away...
