C                 Bbmaj7  C
I'm floating over strange land, 
       Fsus4     Fmaj7     Ebmaj7  Dbmaj7
It's a soulless, sequined, showbiz moon. 
C                 Bbmaj7  C
I'm floating over strange land, 
         Fsus4    Fmaj7  Ebmaj7         Dbmaj9
And then stranger still, there's no balloon. 
 Dm9            Ebmaj7
But I'm getting higher
Em7              Fmaj7
Wafted up by fame's fickle fire 'til the... 

Abmaj7/Eb      Dm7-5
Chalkhills and children, 
          Dbmaj7
Anchor my feet.

Abmaj/Eb       Dm7-5
Chalkhills and children, 
            F       C/F   
Bringing me back to earth, 
Bb/F          C/F         F               
Eternally and ever Ermine Street.

Ab6/C             Dm7-5/C                     C
Even I never know where I go when my eyes are closed. 

C                 Bbmaj7 C
I'm skating over  thin   ice, 
     Fsus4   Fmaj7     Ebmaj7 Dbmaj7
Upon blunted blades of metal  soft. 
C                Bbmaj7 C
I'm skating over thin   ice, 
      Fsus4  Fmaj7      Ebmaj7       Dbmaj9
While some nonesuch net holds me aloft. 
Dm9             Ebmaj7
But I'm getting higher, 
Em7          Fmaj7
Lifted up on lucks' circus wire 'til the... 

Abmaj7/Eb      Dm7-5
Chalkhills and children, 
          Dbmaj7
Anchor my feet.

Even I never know where I go when my eyes are closed. 
Dbmaj7                                  Ab6/Eb
Even I never spied that the scenes were posed. 
Ab6/Eb                         Dbmaj7
Even I never knew this is what I'd be.  
Dbmaj7                                   Dm9
Even eyes never mean that you're sure to see. 

Dm9               Ebmaj7
Still I'm getting higher, 
Em7           Fmaj7
Rolling up on three empty tyres, 'til the...

C                Bbmaj7 C
I'm soaring over hushed crowds, 
    Fsus4    Fmaj7 Ebmaj7   Dbmaj7
The reluctant cannonball it seems. '
C                Bbmaj7 C
I'm soaring over hushed crowds,     
    Fsus4        Fmaj7    Ebmaj7       Dbmaj9
I'm propelled up here by long dead dreams. 

Dm9               Ebmaj7
Still I'm getting higher, 
Em7    Fmaj7
Icarus regrets and retires puzzled. 

Abmaj7/Eb      Dm7-5
Chalkhills and children, 
          Dbmaj7
Anchor my feet.

Abmaj7/Eb      Dm7-5
Chalkhills and children, 
       Dbmaj7
Oddly complete.

**Outro**

Abmaj7/Eb      Dm7-5
Chalkhills and Children
Dm7-5         Abmaj7/Eb              Dm7-5
Even I never know where I go when my eyes are all closed.
