The Child Is Gone  Fiona Apple

G Dm G Dm x 2
[G]Darling, give me your absence [Dm]tonight
[G]Take the shade from the canvas and leave me the[Dm] white
[Gm]Let me sink in the[D] silence that [Gm]echoes [D]inside
[Gm]And don't bother leaving the [C]light on
[Fm]'Cause I suddenly [Bb]feel like a d[Fm]ifferent [Bb]person
[Fm]From the roots of my [Bb]soul [Fm]come a gentle [Bb]coercion
[Fm]And I ran my [Ab]hand O'er a st[F#]range inversion
[Fm]A vacancy tha[Am]t just did not [Bb]belong[Bbm] [Bb]
Fm Eb Bbm Fm Eb Bbm x2
The child is gone
Fm Eb Bbm x2
[Eb]Honey [C]help me o[Fm]ut of this mess
[Ebm]I'm a s[Ab]tranger to [Bb]myse[Bbm]lf
[Cm]But don't [C]reach for [Bb]me I'[Bbm]m too f[C]ar away
[Bb]I don't wanna [C]talk 'Cause there's
[Bb]Nothing left[C] to say
[G]So my Darling, [Dm]give me y[G]our absence t[Dm]onight
[G]Take all of your [Dm]sympathy and [G]leave it [Dm]outside
[Gm]'Cause there's no kind of [D]loving that can [Gm]Make this [D]alright
[Gm]I'm trying to find a [F]place I [C]belong
[Fm]And I suddenly [Bb]feel like a [Fm]different pe[Bb]rson
[Fm]From the roots of my [Bb]soul come [F]a g[Fm]entle c[Bb]oersion
[Fm]And I ran my [Ab]hand o'er a strange inversion
[Fm]As the darkness [Eb]turns [Fm]into the d[Bb]awn
[Fm]The ch[Eb]ild i[Bb]s gone x 2
