Song: "The Animals Were Gone"
[Intro] G C Am D11 G Em Am B7 [Verse] G C Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone Am D11 G It's left this house empty now, not sure if I belong Em Am Yesterday you asked me to write you a pleasant song B7 I'll do my best now, but you've been gone for so long G C The window's open now and the winter settles in Am D11 G We'll call it Christmas when the adverts begin Em Am I love your depression and I love your double chin B7 I love 'most everything that you bring to this offering [Chorus] Am G Am G Oh I know that I left you in places of despair Am G Am G Oh I know that I love you, so please throw down your hair Am G Am G At night I trip without you, and hope I don't wake up Am G Am G 'Cause waking up without you is like drinking from an empty cup [Chorus] G C Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone Am D11 G Our clocks are ticking now so before our time is gone Em Am We could get a house and some boxes on the lawn B7 We could make babies and accidental songs G C I know I've been a liar and I know I've been a fool Am D11 G I hope we didn't break yet, but I'm glad we broke the rules Em Am My cave is deep now, yet your light is shining through B7 I cover my eyes, still all I see is you [Repeat Chorus]
