Title: This Carnival Is Dead And Gone

 Am Am 
Dear sir dear lady

       G Em 
This carnival is dead and gone

 Am G Bm Am 
And never anyway alas this party never yet began

The chairs and tables dust of dust

 G Em Am  
Yes verydust of veryrust of verymust and farewelltrust

    G Bm Am  
I thought I saw you in the crowd dear heart

                               G Em 
You turned away from me and then you dissolved into light

      Am Bm 
The broken lights and faded buntings

 G Fmaj7 
Call to us all the inmost light
  
                                    G 
And don't glare wide your eyes in wonder

       Em Fmaj7 
They will flick back inside your mind

                        G 
And on the bonescreen of your skull

       Bm Am 
They watch no musical salutes

                G Em Am 
So thoroughly modern now we are

But the last reel of all time

 G Am 
The inmost night

Its frames are glared and slow and out of focus

 G Em Am 
Valentino Vallee Moss all dead!

The inmost night

           G Bm Am 
And the little bells go tinkle

And your eyes begin to twinkle
 
          G Em   
And the joints and sinews crack

 Am G 
It's the expansion of your mind death
Death
Death
Death

 Fmaj7 Am 
The inmost night

      G Em Am 
The cat's face glares from shiny card

The deadcat from my past

       G Bm Am 
You tumble you froth and fun forever

    Fmaj7 Am 
An orchestra from another time

 G Em 
Another world all dead

       Am G Bm Am 
The churchbells silent the rainstained glass of God is smashed

And you take your choice you sup with the devil

      G Em 
You choke on your pride for ever and ever

     Fmaj7 G Bm Am  
My memory of my inmost light it tumbles froth and fun forever

                                    G 
Vulvaic memories imagined of my would-be-life

       Em 
Well that won't be

      Am 
And that won't be

And that won't be

 G Bm    
And that won't be

 Fmaj7 
And for my troubles and my pain
 
 G Em 
And for the losses and the wains

    Am 
I get a picture in my mind

      G Bm Am 
The slyly smily smiling kiss

               G 
Of your sweet heart and face

 Em Am 
And your legs in some final benediction

                             G 
Your inmost warmheart says ta-ra

           Bm Am 
And I wished to die inside of you

                       G Em 
And push up into your heart so violently that

 Am G 
Face to face with matrix creatrix am

                Bm Am  
The inmost light

The inmost night


A last tip:
Intead of playing Bm Am, you can also play Bm Am G Am instead (all with short strums of course).
