       F   
I will be with my mom at the end of her life
                                A# 
As I know that she would be for mine.

It's not obligation that leads me to say it,
     C           A#                    F 
It's just how i intend to spend the time.
  
No person who gives out a part of themselves
                       A#
Will ever be truly forgotten.

These parts will change hands,

And they surpass lifespans,
 C               A#               F
Alive as long as they are passed along.
               G
I remember the parts passed to me,
                C
And after she's gone,
                   F
I will remember my mom.

F                
My mother sat like a book on the shelf
                                     A#
Through the cold autumn years of her life,

Replaying her memories like a tape on repeat
C        A#          F
Over and over in her mind.

She'd always been the kind of a mother

Who would put others before herself,
            A#
This much i know.

There were men in her life
                        C           A#         F
Who took well advantage before they got up to go.
                    G                             C
imagine all of your memories of mistakes that you made
                    F                       A#
played over in your mind like the loop of a tape.
               G                           C
do my mother's regrets, for which she lost rest,
                  F
do they keep you awake at night?
                       A#
could you tell me that father?
                 G
do your memories haunt you, sir?
           C
or are you content with what you left behind?

F
i will be with my mom at the end of her life,
                          A#
but sir i will not be for yours.

you've done nothing to earn it and frankly,
                              C           A#              F
you don't deserve it, so you won't be receiving that reward.
                                                           
there are people who's names are passed down generations,
                              A#
and sir, yours is not one of them.

consider it a consequence of a mistake that you made,
C               A#             F
for which there will never be amends.

                  G                   C
how is that for a memory to keep you awake?
                           F          
there are parts that you gave to me,
                          A#
but there are parts of us all, i think,
                    G
that are better off left behind.
                      C                           F
there are parts of us all that are better left to die.
