Does He Love You v1

Rilo Kiley

Get a real job
Keep the wind to your back and the sun on your fac            
All the immediate unknowns are better than
knowing this tired and lonely fate        

Does he love you?
Does he love you?
Will he hold your tiny face in his hands?    

I guess it's spring; I didn't know
It's always seventy-five with no meltin' snow
A married man, he visits me
I recieved his letters in the mail twice a week

And I think he loves me
and when he leaves her
he's coming out to California

I guess it all worked out
There's a ring on your finger and the baby's due out
You share a place by the park and run a shop for antiques downtown

And he loves you,
yeah he loves you,
and the two of you will soon become three
And he loves you,
even though you used to say you were flawed
if you weren't free

   Let's not forget ourselves good friend
   You and I were almost dead
And you're better off for leavin'
Yeah you're better off for leavin'

Late at night, I get the phone
You're at the shop sobbin' all alone
Your confession is coming out
You only married him, you felt your time was running out

But now you love him, and your baby
At last you are complete
But he's distant and you found him on the phone pleading saying
'baby I love you and I'll leave her and I'm comin' out to California'

Let's not forget ourselves good friend
I am flawed if I'm not free
and your husband will never leave you, he will never leave you for me

This is just a basic outline, I don't think anything is wrong though, the D/F# could also be G/F# but I doubt it, and the Bdim/F is really just the same thing as a Fdim, but harmonically it works better if you spell it as the Bdim. There is a lot of chromatic movement in this song, I like it.
