SET THE CONTROLS FOR THE HEART OF THE SUN
Pink Floyd
(Waters)
 
 Am                   G              Am      G  Am
 Little by little the night turns around,
                           G           Am    G  Am
 Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
 Dm                   C          Dm          C  Dm
 Lotus's lean on each other in yearning,
 Am               G              Am
 Over the hills a swallow is resting
 
 G  Am  F  Am  F  Am
 
                          G             Am   G  Am  G  Am  G  Am
 Set the controls for the heart of the sun
 
 Am                 G                 Am     G  Am
 Over the mountains watching the watcher,
                       G               Am    G  Am
 Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine
 Dm                   C               Dm     C  Dm
 Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow,
 Am                      G            Am
 Love is the shadow that ripens the wine
 
 G  Am  F  Am  F  Am

                          G             Am   G  Am  G  Am
 Set the controls for the heart of the sun,
 Am
 The heart of the sun,  The heart of the sun...
 
 Am                    G            Am       G  Am
 Witness the man who waves at the wall,
                         G               Am  G  Am
 Making the shape of his questions to heaven
 Dm                   C               Dm     C  Dm
 Whether the sun will fall in the evening,
 Am                   G            Am
 Will he remember the lesson of giving?
 
 G  Am  F  Am  F  Am
 
                          G             Am   G  Am
 Set the controls for the heart of the sun,
 Am
 The heart of the sun,  The heart of the sun...
