Even a Child  Crowded House

Great song by Neil Finn and Johnny Marr (Smiths)
Comes closest to the original when you keep you pink on G 3rd fret 1st string for Em,
en C chords.
[G]I want to turn on the lights
I want to keep your hopes alive
[F]So where do I begin
To [Em]help you believe [C]again
[G]Makers of secret planes
Keepers of our last remains
[F]Dream of a holy state
In a [Em]nightmare time[C]
You know I meant it well
But [Am7]who was it meant to [B7]help?
Even the [Em]child knows you don't waste it
A pr[D]omise is [Em]only given once
And there [Am7]is no doubt that changes have be[Em]gun
Well, [D]even a [Em]child knows that you can't fake it
As [D]long as the [Em]world is waking up
You are [Am7]free now to recover your [D]heart
The stories left to write
The ebb and flow of my life
To justify the end
I'll do everything I can
And it's a dangerous game
I heard you tell someone
That you don't care
But I don't believe the message
And when you sing about love
What are you thinking of?
Even a child knows you don't waste it
As long as the world is waking up
And there is no doubt that changes have begun
Well, even a child knows you don't fake it
A promise is only given once
You are free now to go wherever you [G]want
There's [A]nothing like [Am]waking up in some foreign town
And [B7]musi[Em]c, the [D]call to [G]prayer
Is wa[A]iling out of [Am]speakers in the marketplace
The fi[B7]rst time
Even a [Em]child
[B7]Even a chi[Em]ld knows you don't waste it
[B7]A present can [Em]always be delivered twice
You are [Am7]free now to receive the gift of [B7]inside
[D]From now on let's[G] be open
[D]All in t[C]ime, let's breathe in
[D]Am I brav[G]e, you're so brave
[D]Am I afr[C]aid, no, not afraid
[D]Even the [G]child
