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 won’t miss this when it's gone. 
A#5                               A#5/A  G5    D#5
I won’t 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 won’t miss this when it's gone. 
A#5                               A#5/A  G5    D#5
I won’t 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.

End on
