Artist:  Missy Higgins
Album:   The Sound of White (2004)
Song:    The Sound of White

Tuning:  Standard - EADGBE


***This song is quite piano based but uses guitar part way into it. Instead of starting
with piano, just pick the chords in any progression that suits the tempo etc and it
sounds fine.

Chords used: 
C     -  332010
Cadd9 -  032033
D     -  000232
D*    -  000233
Em    -  022000
G     -  320033


Intro: (Picking)

G   D   C   D*   D

G   D   C   D*   D


VERSE 1: (Picking) 

G   D   C   D*   D
Like a freeze dried rose
You will never be
What you were, what you were
To me in memory

G   D   C   D*   D
But if I listen to the dark
You'll embrace me like a star
Envelope me
Envelope me

PRE-CHORUS:

G   D   C   D*   D
If things get real for me down here
Promise to take me to before you went away
If only for a day

G   D   Cadd9   C   D
If things get real for me down here
Promise to take me back to the tune we played
Before you went away

CHORUS:

G   D   C   D
And if I listen to the sound of white
Sometimes I hear your smile, and breathe your light
Yeah if I listen to the sound of white

VERSE 2:

G   D   C   D*   D
You're my mystery, one mystery
My mystery, one mystery

G   D   C   D*   D
My silence solidifies
Til that hollow void 
Erases you, erases you
Til I can't feel at all

G   D   C   D*   D
But if I never feel again
At least that nothingness will end
The painful dream
Of you and me

PRE-CHORUS: (x1)

CHORUS:

And if I listen to the sound of white
Sometimes I hear your smile, and breathe your light
Yeah if I listen to the sound of white
Sometimes I hear your smile and breathe your light
And if I listen to the sound of white

BRIDGE:

Em   C   G   D
I knelt before
Some stranger's face
Well I never had the courage 
Or belief to trust this place

Em   C   G   D (pause on the D note)
And I dropped my head
Cos it felt like lead
And I'm sure I felt 
Your fingers through my hair

(Pick the notes C and D in this short break)

CHORUS: 

And if I listen to the sound of white
Sometimes I hear your smile, and breathe your light
Yeah if I listen to the sound of white
Sometimes I hear your smile, and breathe your light
And if I listen to the sound of white
The sound of white
The sound of white
The sound of white

END!

That's probably one of the easiest songs that I've ever heard, but still it's a
killer.... Aussie artists : simple but bloody fantastic!
