D                 Bm               F#m
Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup

Em7                                    A                  A7
They slither while they pass they slip away across the Universe.

D                Bm               F#m
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind

Em7              Gm
Possessing and caressing me.


D             A7sus4
Jai Guru Deva Om
A 				
Nothing's gonna change my world
G			  D
Nothing's gonna change my world
A 				
Nothing's gonna change my world
G			  D      Dsus4 D
Nothing's gonna change my world


D	  Bm		     F#m	   		    Em7
Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
			A		   A7
They call me on and on across the Universe.
D		 Bm		 F#m
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letterbox
     Em7			       A                 A7
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the Universe.


D               A7sus4
Jai Guru De Va  Om
A				
Nothing's gonna change my world
G			  D
Nothing's gonna change my world
A	
Nothing's gonna change my world
G                         D      Dsus4 D
Nothing's gonna change my world


D                   Bm			F#m
Sounds of laughter, shades of earth are ringing through my opened ears
Em7	     Gm
Inciting and inviting me.
D	     Bm		      F#m			      Em7
Limitless, undying love which shines around me like a million suns
			A	     A7
And calls me on and on across the Universe.


D             A7sus4
Jai Guru Deva Om
A 
Nothing's gonna change my world
G			  D
Nothing's gonna change my world
A 				
Nothing's gonna change my world
G			  D
Nothing's gonna change my world


D
Jai Guru Deva.  (Repeat)
