C G/C Fadd9/C G/C

There once was a note, pure and easy


C G/C Fadd9/C G/C C G/C Fadd9/C G/C C G/C Fadd9/C


Playing so free like a breath, rippling by



Fmaj7 Dm6[or Dm/F]

The note is eternal, I hear it, it sees me,

Fmaj7 Dm6 C G/C Fadd9/C G/C C G/C Fadd9/C G/C

Forever we blend as, forever we die



C Dm F G

I listened and I heard music in a word,








C Dm F G

and words when you played your guitar


Dm Em G Am

The noise that I was hearing was a million people cheering








G C/G G7 C/G

And a child flew past me riding in a star







Dsus4 D

As people assemble, civilization


G G7 C/G G G7 C/G G

Is trying to find a new way to die

Am Emsus4 E

But killing is really merely scene changer


Am Dm/F Am Dm/F Fmaj7/A Am

All men are bored with other men's lives


[repeat chorus]


Gas on the hillside, oil in the teacup

Watch all the chords of life lose their joy

Distortion becomes somehow pure in its wildness

The note that began all can also destroy.


Am C/A (Am7) Dm/F G/A

We all know success when we all find our own dream

And our love is enough to knock down any wall

And the future's been seen as men try to realize

Am Am7/A Dm/F G/A

The simple secret of the note in us all


Am C F G





[verse from demo]

[Today is the day when sound curdles mountains

Flowing and blowing each man it its wake

Destroying itself in the end with vibration

There's nothing on earth its challenge can take

Excepting one note]



There once was a note... listen

A A A/G G D/F#
