I Know  Fiona Apple

This is a gorgeous song, played in 6/4 time, very slowly.
Forgive the funny spacing, I've tried to lay out the chords in correspondence
to the words. You really have to hear the song to get it precise though.
[C] [Fm] [C] [Fm]  
[C] [Am] [G] [C]  
[C]So be[Fm] it I'm your crowbar
[C]If that's what[Fm] I am so far
[C]Until you g[Am]et ou[G]t of thi[C]s mess
[C]And I will [Fm]pretend
[C]That I don't know [Fm]of your sins
[C]Until you ar[Am]e ready[G] to con[F]fess
[F]But all the[Dm] time[Fm], al[D]l the time
[C]I'll kno[F]w, I'll[C] know[F]
[C]And you can [Fm]use my skin
[C]To bury [Fm]secrets in
[C]And I w[Am]ill [G]settle you [C]down
[C]And at my [Fm]own suggestion
[C]I will [Fm]ask no questions
[C]While I do my t[A]hing in the[G] backg[F]round
[F]But all the [Dm]time,[Fm] all[D] the time
[C]I'll know[F], I'll[C] know[F]
E Am (two measures each chord)
[E]Baby -- I can't help you[Am] out
[F]While she's still [C]around
[C]So fo[Fm]r the tim[C]e being
[C]I'm b[Fm]eing p[C]ati[Am]ent[G] [C]
[C]And amidst th[Fm]is bitterness
[C]If you'll just c[Fm]onsider this
[C]Even if it[Am] don't m[G]ake se[F]nse
[Dm]All the t[Fm]ime, giv[D]e it time
[C]And when the c[Fm]rowd becomes[C] your burden
And y[Fm]ou've early closed your cu[C]rtain
I'll w[Am]ait by the b[G]ackstage [C]door
[C]While you [Fm]try to find
[C]The lines[Fm] to speak your mind
[C]And pry it open ho[Am]ping f[G]or an e[F]ncore
And if it [Dm]gets too late[Fm] for me[D] to wait
[C]For you to find you l[E]ove me, and t[C]ell me so
[Am]It's o[D]k, d[F]on't need to [G]say it...
Outro - C Fm (six measures, ending on C)
