Verse: 

   C                 G  C     G 
I pictured a rainbow,    you held in your hands 
 F           G  F          G 
I had flashes,    but you saw then plan 
   C                    G         C 
I wondered out in the world for years 
       G                       F 
while you just stayed in your room 
                  G F G                           C   G 
I saw the crescent,    you saw the whole of the moon! 
                   F    G 
The whole of the moon! 

Verse: 

         C                                  G 
You were there at the turnstiles, with the wind at your heels 
    C                                 G 
You stretched for the stars, and you know how it feels to reach 
     F         G        F     G                         C 
too high, too far, too soon, you saw the whole of the moon! 


Verse: 

             G  C        G 
I was grounded,   while you filled the skies 
F            G              F  G 
I was dumbfounded by truths,   you cut through lies 
C                          G C   G 
I saw the rain-dirty valley,    you saw Brigadoon 
F                 G F G                          C 
I saw the crescent,    you saw the whole of the moon! 


Interlude: C  G  C  G  F  G  F  G 


Bridge: 

C                   G Am G 
I spoke about wings,    you just flew 
  F            C              Dm     G 
I wondered, I guessed, and I tried, you just knew 
C       G C G      F     G       F                G  F 
I sighed,     but you swooned, I saw the crescent 
     G                    C    G                    F    G 
you saw the whole of the moon,   The whole of the moon! 


Verse: 

        C                              G 
With a torch in your pocket, and the wind at your heels 
     C                               G 
You climbed on the ladder, and you know how it feels to reach 
     F         G        F                  G            C    G 
too high, too far, too soon, you saw the whole of the moon! 
                  F            G 
The whole of the moon, Hey, yeah! 

Verse: 

C                            G 
Unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers, 
C                                  G 
Trumpets, towers, and tenements, wide oceans full of tears, 
  F                           G 
Flag, rags, ferry boats, scimitars and scarves, 
F                                    G 
Every precious dream and vision, underneath the stars 
      C                           G 
Yes, you climbed on the ladder, with the wind in your sails 
      C                     G 
You came like a comet, blazing your trail 
     F         G        F          G                     C 
Too high, too far, too soon, you saw the whole of the moon!
