Intro : C   G F
          Am
          C   G F
          Am

Verse :
C               G      F
Upside down and inside out
Am
You're like a funnel-web, like a black fly on the
C                      G        F
Ceiling. Skinny, white haunches high in the
Am
Sky and a black oily gash crawling backwards
C                    G              F 
Across the carpet to smash all over everything
Am
Wet, black fur against the sun going down
G
Over the shops and the cars and the crowds in the town

Chorus :
C               G       F 
And this is the moment, this is exactly where she is
Am
Born to be
C                        G            F          Am
Now this is what she does and this is what she is
C                               G                    F
And this is the moment, this is exactly where she is born to
Am
Be. This is what she does 
G                       G   F   Am
And this is what she is

Break : Dm
          Em    F

Verse :
C                    G            F
Her eyes that look at me through a rainy hair
Am
Two round holes where the air buckles and rushes
C           G                F
In her body, moon blue, was a jellyfish
Am
And I'm breathing deep and I'm there and I'm also 
C                       G            F
Not there. And spurting ink over the sheets but 
Am
She remains, completely unexplained
C
Or maybe I'm just too tongue-tied to drink it up and 
G                               F
Swallow back the pain. I thought slavery had 
Am
been abolished. How come it's gone and reared its ugly head again?

Chorus :
C   G                  F
And this is the moment, this is 
Am
Exactly what she is born to be
C                     G           F             
And this is what she does and this is what she 
Am
Is.
C                      G         F
And this is the moment, this is exactly what she is 
Am
Born to be. This is what she 
C                      G     F   Am
Is and this is what she does

Break : Dm
          Em    F

Bridge :
C                                           G
And this is the moment, this is exactly what she is born to be
F                                                Am
And this is what she does and this is what she is
C                                           G
And this is the moment, this is exactly what she is born to be
F                                                Am 
And this is what she does and this is what she is

Verse :
C                                 G       F
And now she's jumping up with her leaping brain
Am
Stepping over heaps of sleeping children
     C                          G            F
Disappearing and further up and spinning out again
Am
Up and further up she goes, up and out of the bed
C                         G            F
Up and out of the bed and down the hall where she 
Am 
Stops for moment and turns and says "Are you still here?"
C                    G     F
And then reaches high and dangles 
    Am
Herself like a child's dream from the rings of
C      G  F  Am
Saturn
