Jared Mees And The Grown Children
A F#m She slips him a note, he shows her his teeth D E She zips up her coat, he goes to the streets A F#m He gets on the bus, finds an empty seat D E A He reads in a rush as it begins to sleet F#m And it says, "Darling, darling, what, oh, what have we done? D Who, oh, who have we become? E Where did we go wrong? A F#m E A You treat me fine, but you make me cry til I can't breathe. E A And if it weren't for this kid, I would probably leave." F#m He wakes up at 6, she's still asleep D And he builds a fire E The rain falls in sheets A F#m He stares at the clock, the carpool's late D E We should leave here at 7 to get there by 8 A F#m He turns on the TV as he picks up the phone D E A The first thing he sees is a man weeping alone A F#m Crying, "Jesus, Jesus, savior, what have we done? D Who, oh, who have we become? E Where did we go wrong? A F#m E A You treat me fine, but you make me cry til I can't breathe. E A And if it weren't for her, I would probably leave." She's 71, he's 73 And they rent a house down by the sea She drops him off and he makes some cash He takes a cab home, finds her on her back Staring at the fan, breath stuck in her throat She takes his hand and she slips in a note And it says, "Why, oh, why do we come so fast and then disappear? Where, oh, where do we go after that, after here? No, I know that this is not for me to see. When I go promise that you'll follow me."
