[F#]Something happened on the [C#/F]day he died
[E]Spirit rose a metre and [B/D#]stepped aside
Somebody [D]else took his place, and [F#/C#]bravely cried
(I'm a [Ddim7]blackstar, I'm a [C#]blackstar)

[F#]How many times does an [C#/F]angel fall?
[E]How many people lie in[B/D#]stead of talking tall?
He [D]trod on sacred ground, he cried [F#/C#]loud into the crowd
(I'm a [Ddim7]blackstar, I'm a [C#]blackstar, I'm not a gangster)

[C]I can't answer why (I'm a blackstar)
Just [C#]go with me (I'm not a filmstar)
I'm-a [C]take you home (I'm a blackstar)
Take your [C#]passport and shoes (I'm not a popstar)
And your [C]sedatives, boo (I'm a blackstar)
Yo a [C#]flash in the pan (I'm not a marvel star)
I'm the [C]great I am (I'm a blackstar)

[F#]I'm a blackstar, way [C#/F]up, oh honey, got game
[E]I see right so white, so[B/D#] open-heart it's pain
[D]I want eagles in my daydreams, [F#/C#]diamonds in my eyes
(I'm a [Ddim7]blackstar, I'm a [C#]blackstar)

[F#]Something happened on the [C#/F]day he died
[E]Spirit rose a metre and [B/D#]stepped aside
Some[D]body else took his place, and [F#/C#]bravely cried
(I'm a [Ddim7]blackstar, I'm a [C#]Starstar, I'm a blackstar)

[C]I can't answer why (I'm not a gangster)
But I can [C#]tell you how (I'm not a flam star)
We were [C]born upside-down (I'm a star star)
Born the [C#]wrong way ?round (I'm not a white star)
(I'm a [C]blackstar, I'm not a [B]gangster
I'm a blackstar, [C]I'm a blackstar
I'm not a [C#]pornstar, I'm not a wandering star
[C]Ohhhh Ohhhh
I'm a [B]blackstar, I'm a blackstar)

[C]    [B]    [C]    [B]    [Am]    [B]    
[C]    [B]In the villa of Ormen,
[Am]    [B]stands a solitary candle
[C]ah-  [D]ah, [Em]ah-a   [C]h  
At the [D]centre of it [C]all,
[D]Your [B]eyes

[C]    [B]    [C]    [B]    
[C]    [B]On the day of execution,
[Am]    [B]only women kneel and smile
[C]ah-  [D]ah, [Em]ah-a   [C]h  
At the [D]centre of it [C]all,
[D]Your [B]eyes

[C]    [B]    
[C]Your [B]eyes

[C]    [B]    [C]    [B]    
[D]Ah, [C]ah, [B]ah  
[C]    [B]    [C]    [B]    [Am]    [B]    
[C]    [B]    [C]    [B]    [Am]    [B]    


In the villa of Ormen,
in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle,
ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all,
in the centre of it all
Your eyes


On the day of execution,
on the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile,
ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all,
at the centre of it all
Your eyes,


your eyes

Ah- ah- ah




Ah- ah- ah

In the villa of Ormen,
in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle,
ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all,
At the centre of it all
Your eyes


your eyes

Ah- ah- ah



Ah- ah- ah
Ah- ah- ah
Ah- ah- ah

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar)

How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd
(I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar, I'm not a gangster)

I can't answer why (I'm a blackstar)
Just go with me (I'm not a filmstar)
I'm-a take you home (I'm a blackstar)
Take your passport and shoes (I'm not a popstar)
And your sedatives, boo (I'm a blackstar)
Yo a flash in the pan (I'm not a marvel star)
I'm the great I am (I'm a blackstar)

I'm a blackstar, way up, oh honey, got game
I see right so white, so open-heart it's pain
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
(I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar)

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I'm a blackstar, I'm a Starstar, I'm a blackstar)

I can't answer why (I'm not a gangster)
But I can tell you how (I'm not a flam star)
We were born upside-down (I'm a star star)
Born the wrong way ?round (I'm not a white star)
(I'm a blackstar, I'm not a gangster
I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar
I'm not a pornstar, I'm not a wandering star
Ohhhh Ohhhh
I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar)


In the villa of Ormen,
stands a solitary candle
ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all,
Your eyes


On the day of execution,
only women kneel and smile
ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all,
Your eyes


Your eyes


Ah, ah, ah
