Then:   A#5  A#5/A  G5    D#5 

A#5                    A#5/A                                  G5    D#5 
Soak up all the strain and cast out all your old complaints.  
A#5                    A#5/A                                   
She didn't work this hard to give up and let death stake a claim.  
G5                      D#5 
20 years, 1 month and 27 days.  

A#5  A#5/A  G5    D#5 
Is this all she gets?  
A#5                            A#5/A                                  
A striking realisation that the cross she had to bear wasn't half as  
G5                                           D#5 
heavy as the burden that now hangs around her neck. 
  
A#5                               A#5/A  G5    D#5 
I wonít miss this when it's gone.  
A#5                               A#5/A  G5    D#5 
I wonít miss this when it's gone.  

A#5                   A#5/A                       G5 
What is there to say? Another fumbled consolation cuts the air  
                  D#5 
but seems to fail in every way.  

A#5                                    A#5/A                   G5                        D#5 
You can't sum up in two lines the cost to a mother that outlives her child, so why bother.  


A#5  A#5/A  G5    D#5 
Is this all she gets?  

A#5                    A#5/A          
A solemn promise that times a great healer,  
G5                                        D#5 
from someone that could never understand quite how much that she needs her.  

A#5                               A#5/A  G5    D#5 
I wonít miss this when it's gone.  
A#5                               A#5/A  G5    D#5 
I wonít miss this when it's gone.  

                           PM...... 
  
A#5                               A#5/A                 
I guess it takes less time to formulate the answers to  
G5                               D#5 
all the questions why than it does to understand them.  
A#5                               A#5/A                 
I'm not talking about experts, medicine or science,  
G5                               D#5 
there's folly in believing these things will ever satisfy her  

A#5                               A#5/A    
when memories of a body strapped with wires leaves her lost.  
G5                               D#5 
I want to scream until my lungs bleed "I'm glad your son died on the cross",  

A#5                               A#5/A                 
but i bite my lip and hold my tongue because everybody  
G5                               D#5 
needs a safety net and i think she chose the right one.
