INTRO
G  G/F#  C  G  G/F#  C


 G               G/F#                     C
Some things I've done make my conscience burn,

My very spine shutter and squirm.
G      G/F#              C
I only hope that I've learned frm my sins.
G                   G/F#
I heard a voice when I was 13,
      C
Got baptised and washed up clean.
         G                      G/F#
But the world has a way, if you know what I mean,
C
Of scuffin' you up again, and again.

 D         D/F#       G
- I can't explain a blessed thing,
        C
Not a fallen star or a feathered wing,
    D            D/F#                 G          C
Or how a man in chains can have the strength to sing.
D         D/F#     G
Just one thing is clear to me,
          C
There's always more than what appears to be
               D           D/F#     G      C
And when the light's just right I swear I see...poetry. -

*REPEAT INTRO*

G              G/F#
Now, somebody made everything
         C
From my soul inside out to Saturn's rings, 
        G               G/F#             C
How my baby smiles, how Ray Charles sings...

Of course we were created.
  G                    G/F#
Clouds make rain, the ocean makes sand,
     C
The earth breathes fire, and lava makes land.
 G                G/F#
Well, that took a mighty hand
       C
And a wild imagination...yup.

 D         D/F#       G
- I can't explain a blessed thing,
        C
Not a fallen star or a feathered wing,
    D            D/F#                 G          C
Or how a man in chains can have the strength to sing like a bird.
D         D/F#     G
Just one thing is clear to me,
          C
There's always more than what appears to be
               D           D/F#     G      C
And when the light's just right I swear I see...poetry. -

*REPEAT INTRO*

 G                G/F#
Dreams I dreamed came back ten-fold
           C
From the friends that I have to the woman I hold.
G                 G/F#
I look down on a street of gold,
       C
After all the mud along the way.
 G                   G/F#          C
Sometimes a big ol' mystery just leans right in on me.
         G             G/F#
Whispers I am home and I am free...
     C
And I'll take that anyday...anyday.

 D         D/F#       G
- I can't explain a blessed thing,
        C
Not a fallen star or a feathered wing,
    D            D/F#                 G          C
Or how a man in chains can have the strength to sing "I'll Fly Away".
D         D/F#     G
Just one thing is clear to me,
          C
There's always more than what appears to be
               D           D/F#     G      C
And when the light's just right I swear I see...poetry. -

*G  G/F#  C  G  F/#  C* (repeat until end of song)

Round the corner, there's poetry.
Down the block, yeah.
On the other side of the world.
Just above my head...
Just one thing is clear to me,
there's always more than what appears to be.
Just one thing is clear to me, 
there's always more than what appears to be.
