 CAm
i don't know if it was real or in a dream

 DmFG
lately waking up i'm not sure where i've been     

 CAm
there was a table set for six and five were there

 DmFG
i stood outside and kept my eyes upon that empty chair 

there was steam on the windows from the kitchen
laughter like the language i once spoke with ease
but i'm made mute by the virtue of decision
i choose most of your life goes on without me

chorus

 DmFG
 oh the fear i've known 

 CAm
that i might reap the praise of strangers
 FG
and end up on my own

 DmF
and all i've sown was a song

 GDm
but maybe i was wrong  

verse 2

i said to you the one gift i'd adore
is a package of the next 10 years as they're unfolding
"package of the next 10 years unfolding"
but you told me if i had my way i'd be bored
and i knew enough to bless one of your scoldings

when we last talked we were lying on our backs
"lying on our backs"
looking up at the sky we were looking through the ceiling
"looking at the sky" "looking through the ceiling"
i used to lie like that alone out on the driveway
i was trying to read the greek upon the stars the alphabet of feeling

chorus 2

oh i knew back then
it was a calling that said if joy then pain
the sound of the voice these years later
is still the same

solo

verse 3 accapello

i am alone in a hotel room tonight
i squeeze the sky out but there's not a star appears
begin my studies with this paper and this pencil
and i'm working through the grammar of my fears

chorus 3
oh mercy me what i won't give
"oh mercy save me"
to have the things that mean the most
not to be the things i'd miss
the unforgiving choice still is
"unforgiving
the language or the kiss
yes it is

thanks yall (obligatory)
