Tune down one half-tone (EbAbDbGbBbEb)

C          Dm       F    C
if i could wave a magic wand
C             Dm     F   G
i would cross every lily pond
C
plunge right in
C
if i could
C          Dm       F    C
if i could wave a magic wand
C             Dm     F   G
i would cross every lily pond
C               Dm         F   G
plunge an arm through the icy mist
C               Dm               F
wrest the corn from your grubby fist
G
and the wonder that you're after isn't under
    Dm        F            Am
the glass partition of a vending machine
G
it's not curling to the rafters with the sterling
      Dm        F              Am
that lines the walls of your extravagant dream
   D           G        C+
on earth as it is in heaven

C+          Dm       F      C+
if i could say the secret word
C+             Dm      F     G
i would pluck each aquatic bird
C+          Dm      F    G
put a down payment on a bill
C+            Dm          F    
do you sex triumph over will
G
but the splendor that you long for isn't tender
  Dm           F         Am
redeemed for mineral equivalence worth
G
what you pander for a song fall which is standard
 Dm           F             Am
misformed and broken in advance of your birth
   D           G        Am
on earth as it is in heaven
   D           G         C
on earth as it is in heaven
