B                     C B
In the Villa of Ormen

In the Villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle

Ah, aaaaah
Em  C
Ah, aaaaah

In the centre of it all

Your eyes

On the day of execution
On the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile
Ah, aaaaah
Ah, aaaaah
At the centre of it all
At the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes

D    C    B
Aah, aah, aaaaah

Aah, aah, aaaaah

In the Villa of Ormen
In the Villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle
Ah, aaaaah

At the centre of it all
At the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes

Aah, aah, aaaaah

F#                         C#/F
Something happened on the day he died
E                       G#m7/D#
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
    D6                            F#/C#
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
      Ddim7
I'm a blackstar
       C#
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 gangstar)

C
I can’t answer why (I’m a blackstar)
     C#
Just go with me (I’m not a filmstar)
       C
I’m-a take you home (I’m a blackstar)
          C#
Take your passport and shoes (I’m not a pop star)
          C
And your sedatives, boo (I’m a blackstar)
          C#
You’re a flash in the pan (I’m not a Marvel star)
          C
I’m the great I am (I’m a blackstar)

I'm a blackstar, way up, oh honey, I've 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 star star (I'm a blackstar)

C
I can’t answer why (I’m not a gangstar)
          C#
But I can tell you how (I’m not a flam star)
         C
We were born upside-down (I’m a star star)
          C#
Born the wrong way ‘round (I’m not a whitestar)
        C
I’m a blackstar
           B
I’m not a gangstar (I’m a blackstar)
         C
 I’m a blackstar
           C#
I’m not a pornstar, I’m not a wandering star
 C
Oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
        B
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
