 no one's the wiser
 F#mC#mBmA
 You find your sights and discover        

REFRAIN:

 You found the ladder in the pattern of your wrist
 F#mC#mBmA
 You've seen and you've marked horizons   
 F#mC#mBmA
 Mother was difficult she made you cry
 F#mC#mBmA
 Cover the mirror, look at the sky
 F#mC#mBmA
 You climb into your rocketship triumph
 F#mC#mBmA
 Lift up and hold out your hands.

 F#mC#mBmA
 Easy to take off, harder to fly
 F#mC#mBmA
 Harder to wake Galileo.
