[Chorus]
N.C. I'm a [C#m]melancholy man, [F#m7]that's what I am,
All [G#]the world surrounds me and my [C#m]feet, are on the ground.
N.C.I'm a [C#m]very lonely man, [F#m7]doing what I can,
[G#]All the world astounds me and I [C#m]think, I understand
That we're [G#7]going, to keep growing, wait and [C#m]see.[C#m]

#
[Verse 1]
[C#m]When all the stars are falling down,
[F#m7]Into the sea and on the ground,
[G#]And angry voices carry on the [C#m]wind.
#

[Verse 2]
[C#m]A beam of light will fill your head,
[F#m7]And you'll remember what's been said
[G#]By all the good men this world's ever [C#m]known.
#

[Verse 3]
[C#m]Another man is what you'll see,
[F#m7]Who looks like you, and looks like me,
[G#]And yet somehow, he will not feel the [C#m]same.
#

[Verse 4]
[C#m]His life caught up in misery, [F#m7]he doesn't think like you and me,
[G#]'Cause he can't see, what you and I can [C#m]see.
