A  D  A  D E A  D  A D E A

A              D
I had a show a few weeks ago
     A                  D         E
It's getting harder and harder to sing
A                 D                  A
And it is hard to focus on my guitar playing
     D        E       A
When inside a baby is kicking

A              D
At first I was sad and scared
       A             D           E
'Cause this is all I know how to do
A                   D
Then John and Peter played standing up
          A              D
Sometimes something will change
    E                A
And that change will change you

     A                 D
Then I thought back to six years ago
     A             D          E
When Brian Pilkton told me to play
   A                D     
He gave me a car, a typewriter, a guitar
A           D           E            A
Before that all I could do was count days

     A                 D
Then I thought back to before my coma
  A                 D          E
Rehab in Tacoma, my junkie roommates
    A                      D
And all that I knew how to do was
               A         D           E           A
Put cigarettes out on myself, I took pills and I drank

    A                      D
And I thought back to when I was 15
      A                       D           E
How I was squeaky clean and I wanted to die
      A                          D
I was feeding the homeless while combating loneliness
A            D          E        A
All I could do was keep living a lie

     A                    D
Then I think back to that 12 year old poet
    A                      D              E
How she didn't know it was what she would be
A                         D
All she could do was hide under her bed
          A              D          E           A
Scared to death that somebody might read her diary

        A                       D
You see I have changed and I'll keep on changing
    A             D            E
And maybe my song-writing will suffer
    A               D
But it's okay if at the end of the day
    A        D            E         A
All I can do next is just be a good mother
It's okay if at the end of the day
    A        D       E         A
All I can do next is be a good mother

that's it! enjoy!
