Verse 1:
C#(Break)                    E(break)                     G#
  Big dipper north of nowhere, Outside the room inside my mind
Eb                          C#                            G#
  I look forward to tomorrow, But can I leave yesterday behind
Bbm Ab F#         Fm             F#        Fm                F#      Fm
How it feels so strange, To have grown and changed, Now it's not the same

Chorus 1:
G#  Eb             C#
Coz time slips and slides into another place
    Eb        C#
and try as we might to understand each other
B                               E                            Ebm
Doesn't really matter where you are, It always seems so very far
                 C#                                           Eb(break)
It's like you're lightyears away, you're lightyears away from me

Verse 2: (do Verse 1 Chords)
Little dipper south of somewhere, it looks much closer than it really is
I held it in my hands, But you're forever out of reach
Far as the eye can see, Nothing is meant to be
Doesn't mean much to me

Chorus 2:
    Eb        C#
But ohh, if I only had a rocketship
   Eb         C#
to fly I'd be right there in a minute
       B                               E                             Ebm
But it doesn't really matter where you are, however near is still so far
          C#                                                  Eb
It's like you're lightyears away, you're lightyears away from me, ohhh...

F#      Fm              F#       Fm               F#      Fm

Bbm                         C#                            G#(hold)

About the artist behind Lightyears:

The Eraserheads, Eraserheads, or E-Heads was a prominent Pinoy rock band of the 1990s, formed by Ely Buendia, Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala and Marcus Adoro. The band is one of the most successful, critically-acclaimed, and significant bands in the history of Original Pinoy Music,[1] giving them the title "The Beatles of the Philippines."[1][2] The Eraserheads was also said to open the second wave of band invasion,[3] paving the way for other alternative rock bands[4] such as Rivermaya, The Youth, Teeth, Siakol, Grin Department, Parokya ni Edgar and Yano.

The band released more than several different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one. This commercial success was most evident in the release of their third album Cutterpillow, which achieved platinum status several times. The Eraserheads are one the best-selling musical acts of all time in the Philippines, paving way for an international career that earned them the "Moon Man" in the MTV Video Music Awards.

Their diverse music worked both in the underground and mainstream scenes of the Philippine music industry. By fusing different musical styles such as alternative, pop, rock, reggae, and synthpop the Eraserheads helped change the sound of Pinoy rock.
