[Verse 1]
E5          D6sus2    Cmaj7      D6sus2
    Today I am   ...a small blue thing,
E5         D6sus2       Cmaj7    D6sus2
    Like a marble or an eye,
         E5              D6sus2
With my knees against my mouth,
      Cmaj7           D6sus2
I am     ...perfectly round,
E5        D6sus2          Cmaj7      D6sus2
     I am     ...watching    ...you!


[Chorus]
Fadd#4        G                Fadd#4
        I am cold against your skin,
           G            Fadd#4
You are perfectly re - flected,
      G               Fadd#4        G                 Am9
I am lost inside your pocket, I am lost against your fingers,
      Bm7              Cmaj7 *        Bm7             Am9
I am falling down the stairs,   I am skipping on the sidewalk,
      Bm7              Cmaj7 *        Bm7             Am9/G
I am thrown against the sky,    I am raining down in pieces,
      Bm7/A          Am9/G     Bm7/A         Am9/G
I am scattering like light,  scattering like light,
  Bm7/A         Am9/G
Scattering like light!


[Verse 2]
E5          D6sus2    Cmaj7      D6sus2
    Today I am   ...a small blue thing,
E5          D6sus2         Cmaj7   D6sus2
    Made of China, made of glass,
      E5                  D6sus2         Cmaj7           D6sus2 
I am cool, and smooth, and  ...curious, I  ...never blink,
E5      D6sus2          Cmaj7
   I am turning in your hand,
D6sus2           E5    D6sus2   Cmaj7   D6sus2
Turning in your hand!


[Chorus]
Fadd#4        G                Fadd#4
        I am cold against your skin,
           G            Fadd#4
You are perfectly re - flected,
      G               Fadd#4        G                 Am9
I am lost inside your pocket, I am lost against your fingers,
      Bm7              Cmaj7 *        Bm7             Am9
I am falling down the stairs,   I am skipping on the sidewalk,
      Bm7              Cmaj7 *        Bm7             Am9/G
I am thrown against the sky,    I am raining down in pieces,
      Bm7/A          Am9/G     Bm7/A         Am9/G
I am scattering like light,  scattering like light,
  Bm7/A         Am9/G
Scattering like light!

    Today I am    ...a small blue thing,
E5         D6sus2       Cmaj7   D6sus2
    Like a marble or an eye,
      E5                  D6sus2          Cmaj7     D6sus2
I am cool, and smooth, and  ...curious, I   ...never blink,
E5        D6sus2         Cmaj7
    I am turning in your hand,
D6sus2           E5     D6sus2         Cmaj7
Turning in your hand,  turning in your hand,
