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.

[intro]
D-G-D-Cadd9

G
I want to turn on the lights
I want to keep your hopes alive
F
So where do I begin
   Em               C
To help you believe again
G
Makers of secret planes
Keepers of our last remains
F
Dream of a holy state
     Em             C
In a nightmare time
You know I meant it well
    Am7                 B7
But who was it meant to help?
         Em
Even the child knows you don't waste it
    D        Em
A promise is only given once
          Am7                             Em
And there is no doubt that changes have begun
      D      Em
Well, even a child knows that you can't fake it
   D           Em
As long as the world is waking up
        Am7                      D
You are free now to recover your heart

[verse]
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?
[chorus]
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
                                    G
You are free now to go wherever you want
[bridge]
        A            Am
There's nothing like waking up in some foreign town
    B7  Em     D       G
And music, the call to prayer
     A            Am
Is wailing out of speakers in the marketplace
      B7
The first time
       Em
Even a child
(solo)

B7        Em
Even a child knows you don't waste it
B7            Em
A present can always be delivered twice
        Am7                             B7
You are free now to receive the gift of inside
D                G
From now on let's be open
D       C
All in time, let's breathe in
D        G
Am I brave, you're so brave
D       C
Am I afraid, no, not afraid
D        G
Even the child
