Tuned down one half step
Intro: | D | F#m | A |

D                 Bm               F#m 
Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
     Em7                          A              A7
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe
D                Bm               F#m
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind
  Em7            Gm
Possessing and caressing me.

D             A7sus4
Jai guru deva om
A                         A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G                         D
Nothing's gonna change my world
A                         A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G                         D
Nothing's gonna change my world

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

D             A7sus4
Jai guru deva om
A                         A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G                         D
Nothing's gonna change my world
A                         A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G                         D
Nothing's gonna change my world

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

D             A7sus4
Jai guru deva om
A                         A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G                         D
Nothing's gonna change my world
A                         A7
Nothing's gonna change my world
G                         D
Nothing's gonna change my world
D
