[Intro]
F  Gm  Dm

[Verse 1]
F            Gm             Dm
Mama, I know you cannot let go
F                     Gm
The weight that I have placed upon your scales
   Dm
Is more than they were meant to hold
F            Gm                      Dm
But steady is the hand that leads me home
F                      Gm
I’ve never known its plan, but I’m still grasping
   Dm
To the other end of its rope
F  Gm Dm
Like you [x2]

[Verse 2]
F                 Gm                  Dm
Lately you just speak in words that broke
F                 Gm           
Eventually the shards will break apart
            Dm
Until they start in to make you choke
F               Gm               Dm
All of us were once baptized in hope
F                      Gm
Holy water that you gathered from the father
Dm
Until it started coming out of your throat

[Pre Chorus]
Bb        F     
And you felt it like a bad dream
Bb        F
But I watched it like a movie screen
Bb        F                                C
Different eyes can see the same thing and not realize what it means

[Chorus]
F          Bb
Oh, Lord, where did I go wrong?
Gm
A cut cord?
C
A kettle left too long?
F              Bb                            Gm     C
But you won’t answer any prayers when I’m alone
F                   Bb
Perfume words from alabaster songs
Gm                 C 
And tales of hurt described by fiery tongues
F              Bb                            Gm     C
But you won’t answer any prayers when I’m alone

Bb             C                                  [F Gm Dm] x2
Why don't you come back like when I was young?  

[Verse 3]
F            Gm             Dm
Mama, I know you cannot let go
F                        Gm
Though we have both been rowing toward the ocean
Dm
It seems our motions split some time ago
F              Gm                  Dm
Shaky are the hands with which we row
F                  Gm
The way the rapids turn the land to sand
      Dm
Feels like a steady plan to take us home

[Pre Chorus]
Bb    F
You felt it like an ending
Bb    F
But I watched it like a new scene
Bb         F                                C
Different ears can hear the same thing and not agree on what it means

[Chorus]
F          Bb
Oh, Lord, where did I go wrong?
Gm
A cut cord?
C
A kettle left too long?
F              Bb                            Gm     C
But you won’t answer any prayers when I’m alone
F                   Bb
Perfume words from alabaster songs
Gm                 C 
And tales of hurt described by fiery tongues
F              Bb                            Gm     C
But you won’t answer any prayers when I’m alone

Bb             C                                  [F Gm Dm] x2
Why don't you come back like when I was young?    

[Outro]
F  Gm Dm
Like You
