The Man Who Fell to Earth – Will Varley

Capo: 2nd fret

Am
A new star is born in the stillness of morning

The edge of the universe time is expanding
C
It’s endless as love,

Infinitely small,
G                                       G G# 
Lights in the darkness no reason at all

Am
Billions of years, away half moons are sharing 
C
Glasses of wine with asteroids passing
G
Galaxy wakes 

on the wrong side of space
F                  G                                                            
Gravity laughs in reality’s face

Am
Somewhere there like dust in the air
G
A sphere is drifting too slowly to bear
F
And clinging on tightly to rocks and stones
G
A parasite’s calling this dust its home

        Am          G      C    
Another second of another day
         Am    G    C
In this corner of space
         Am   G    C     F  
In this dark cold universe
                     C
This world that I’m living in
Em               F
Makes no sense to me
           F         Dm       F        Dm      C
I’m still dreaming about the man who fell to earth


C       E

Am
A baby is born in the stillness of morning,
C
Ten minutes past five they declared him alive
G
As tears roll down his mother’s cheeks
F                  G    
And the midwife breathes a sigh of relief

Am
While just down the road the last of the drunks
G
Make their way home to pass out on the bus
F
While the first of the business men shirts and ties
G
Get ready to sell some more of their lies

Am
In the newspaper offices lights are still on
C
They’ve been up all night waiting for things to wrong
G
And nobody saw as the wheels came down
F                G
A young man silently fall to the ground

      Am      G       C
In the houses they’re turning on lights
        Am        G           C
Putting blindfolds over their eyes
         Am        G             F
Getting ready for another day at work
                   C
This illusion that I’m living in
E                 F
Makes no sense to me
           F         Dm       F        Dm      C
I’m still dreaming about the man who fell to earth

C       Em

Am
A body is found in the stillness of morning,
C
A priest in the street calls out a warning,
G
Somewhere above London an air hostess stands
F           G
A 747 is coming into land

Am
A farmer has started her work for the day
G
Somehow she knows that something has changed
F
Out in the fields she dreams of her son,
C                        E
Back to the day when his journey begun

Am
An eagle is searching for food in the spring
C
A sperm sleeps while a hummingbird sings
G
A lover is waiting for news by the phone
F                    G         
Out in the fields a cold wind blows

           Am      G       C
Cross the world there’s flashes of light
                   Am      G       C
They’ve been bombing the city all night
        Am          G       F
In the end what’s it  all worth?
                    C
This simulation I’m living in 
E                 F
Makes no sense to me

          F        Dm       F        Dm      C        E
I’m still dreaming about the man who fell to earth
          F        Dm       F        Dm      C          E
I’m still dreaming about the man who fell to earth

Am
A tear is travelling across some skin,
C
Molecules of water and sodium spin,
G
Atoms are shaking so infinitely small
F                            G
Just lights in the darkness no reason at all

Sounds and looks like it should be played Capo 2, with Am, C, G, etc

That's more in keeping with Will's (and most folk artists) style.

Nice one for the basis to learn off though
