C           Dm7  F         C        F   Em   D7      G
 Grapefruit moon, one star shining, shi-ning down on me.
C           Dm7  F            C       F  Em   D7        G
 Heard that tune, and now I'm pining, ho-ney, can't you see?

Chorus 1:

Am          Em     F         C             Am        Em        F
 'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.

 You be-came, my inspi-ration, oh, but what a cost.

Chorus 2:

Am          Em     F         C             Am        Em        F
 'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
C                   Dm7  F         C        F  Em        Dm7  G    C

 Now I'm smoking, ciga-rettes, and I, strive for puri-ty.
C      Dm7  F              C         F  Em D7    G
 And I slip, just like the stars, in-to ob-scuri-ty.

Chorus 3:

Am          Em     F         C             Am        Em        F

 And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is all that I,    can see..
