VERSE
A GYou may have seen a thread of silver, On the window in the bathroom
Bm DThat was thicker than the thread your heart was hanging from

CHORUS

F#m G GmIn the bigger picture theres a lid fourteen times tighter
D G BmIn the bigger picture theres a night fifteen times darker

VERSE
A GYou may have seen the first star flickering, In the park one summer evening
Bm DNo less faintly than the dream that you were wishing on
A GYou may have seen the seagulls circling, On the haze above the factory

Em F#mBut if you haven t seen the places you have come from,

VERSE
A GYou may have seen a blazing bonfire, Burning bright with fickle beauty
Bm DThat was turned to lifeless ashes in the morning
A GYou may have seen a single snowdrop, Where it shivered in the graveyard
F#m ANo less fragile than the soul to which you cling
Em F#mBut if you haven t seen the people you have come from,
G AThen you haven t seen the person youve become
CHORUS
