INTRO
D, G, D, G, Bm (x2), G, Em, G, D


VERSE
             A                               G
You may have seen a thread of silver, On the window in the bathroom
         Bm                                     D
That was thicker than the thread your heart was hanging from
             A                                G
You may have seen a lid of darkness, Clamping down upon a sunset
        F#m                               A
No less tightly than your heart was being strung


CHORUS
              D   G            D
In the bigger picture theres a thread thirteen times thinner
                 F#m           G                  Gm
In the bigger picture theres a lid fourteen times tighter
              D  G             Bm
In the bigger picture theres a night fifteen times darker
          D                G                   Em G D
And it ll hold you like no other in the bigger picture


VERSE
             A                                      G
You may have seen the first star flickering, In the park one summer evening
        Bm                                   D
No less faintly than the dream that you were wishing on
             A                                  G
You may have seen the seagulls circling, On the haze above the factory
          F#m                                   A
With more purpose than the course your life was on
           Em                               F#m
But if you haven t seen the places you have come from,
         G                             A
Then you haven’t seen how far you have come


CHORUS
              D   G            D 
In the bigger picture theres a star sixteen times fainter
                 F#m           G                      Gm
In the bigger picture theres a course seventeen times straighter
              D  G             Bm
In the bigger picture theres a dream eighteen times greater
          D                 G                   Em G D
And it ll steer you like no other in the bigger picture


VERSE
             A                               G
You may have seen a blazing bonfire, Burning bright with fickle beauty
         Bm                              D
That was turned to lifeless ashes in the morning
             A                                G
You may have seen a single snowdrop, Where it shivered in the graveyard
        F#m                                A
No less fragile than the soul to which you cling
           Em                               F#m
But if you haven t seen the people you have come from,
         G                               A
Then you haven t seen the person youve become


CHORUS
              D   G             D 
In the bigger picture theres no answer to your prayers
                 F#m               G             Gm
In the bigger picture but theres a billion other fires
              D  G                 Bm
In the bigger picture you ll learn how to build yours higher
            D               G                    Em G D
When you’ve seen the savage wonder in the bigger picture
              D  G                 Bm
In the bigger picture theres a sea breeze three times fresher
          D                  G                   Em G D
And it ll make your two eyes water in the bigger picture

Just to make it clear, the tuning is dropped down a half step and I play with a capo on the 2nd fret.
