2000 Light Years From Home

Rolling Stones



 Fm
 Sun turning 'round with graceful motion
We're setting off with soft explosion
 Bbm
 Bound for a star with fiery oceans
 Ab
 It's so very lonely
 BbCFm
 You're a hundred light years from home
Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part
It's so very lonely
you're six hundred light years from home
(Break: Instrumental for first two verse lines, then "it's so
very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home. Then the
two-bars worth of music that normally ends the stanza; then
repeating "it's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years
from home." Back to Intro-type music.)
Bell flight fourteen you can now land
See you on Alpha (?) Boran
Safe on the green desert sand
It's so very lonely
you're two thousand light years from home
(Some music pretty much like the break, but mutating into other
stuff to a beautifully messy end.)
