[C]    [Dm7]    [F]    [C]    [F]    [Em7]    [Dm7]    [G]    
[C]    [Dm7]    [Em7]    [F]    [C]    [Em]    [F]    [G]    

[C] Grapefruit [Dm7]moon,    [F] one star [C]shining, [F]shi-[Em]ning [D7]down on [G]me.  
[C] Heard that [Dm7]tune,    [F] and now I'm [C]pining, [F]ho-  [Em]ney, [D7]can't you [G]see?

[Am] 'Cos every [Em]time I [F]hear that [C]melody, well, [Am]something [Em]breaks in-[F]side.
[C] And the grapefruit [Dm7]moon,    [F] one star [C]shining, [F]can't [Em]turn [Dm7]back,    [G] the [C]tide.

[C]    [Dm7]    [Em7]    [F]    [C]    [C]    [Em]    [F]    
[C] Never [Dm7]had, no [F]desti-[C]nation, [F]could [Em]not    [D7]get a-[G]cross.
[C] You be-[Dm7]came,    [F] my inspi-[C]ration, [F]oh, [Em]but    [D7]what a [G]cost.

[Am] 'Cos every [Em]time I [F]hear that [C]melody, well, [Am]something [Em]breaks in-[F]side.
[C] And the grapefruit [Dm7]moon,    [F] one star [C]shining, [F]is   [Em]more than [Dm7]I,     [G] can [C]hide.

[C]    [Dm7]    [Em7]    [F]    [C]    [C]    [Em]    [F]    
[C]    [Dm7]    [F]    [C]    [F]    [Em]    [D7]    [G]    
[C]    [Dm7]    [F]    [C]    [F]    [Em]    [D7]    [G]    
[Am]    [Em]    [F]    [C]    [Am]    [Em]    [F]    
[C]    [Dm7]    [F]    [C]    [F]    [Em]    [Dm7]    [G]    [C]    

[C]    [Dm7]    [Em7]    [F]    [C]    [C]    [Em]    [F]    

[C] Now I'm [Dm7]smoking,[F] ciga-[C]rettes, and I, [F]strive [Em]for    [D7]puri-[G]ty.  
[C] And I [Dm7]slip,    [F] just like the [C]stars, in-[F]to   [Em]ob-   [D7]scuri-[G]ty.  

[Am] 'Cos every [Em]time I [F]hear that [C]melody, well, [Am]something [Em]breaks in-[F]side.
[C] And the grapefruit [Dm7]moon,    [F] one star [C]shining, is [F]all [Em]that [Dm7]I,     [G] can [C]see..

[C]    [Dm7]    [Em7]    [F]    [C]    [C]    [Em]    [F]    [C]    


Grapefruit moon, one star shining, shi-ning down on me.
Heard that tune, and now I'm pining, ho-ney, can't you see?

'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, can't turn back, the tide.


Never had, no desti-nation, could not get a-cross.
You be-came, my inspi-ration, oh, but what a cost.

'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is more than I, can hide.





Now I'm smoking, ciga-rettes, and I, strive for puri-ty.
And I slip, just like the stars, in-to ob-scuri-ty.

'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is all that I, can see..
