         C
Death is real. 
          G
Someone’s there and then they’re not 
                  F
and it’s not for singing about. 
             G
It’s not for making into art. 
      F9        F
When real death enters the house 
    Em
all poetry is dumb. 
    F9  F    G
When I walk in 
       C     G       Am
to the room where you were 
    F    G
and look into 
    C   C/B   F
the emptiness instead 
     G
all fails. 
    F
My knees fail. 
    Am
My brain fails. 
   C
Words fail. 
G 
Crusted with tears, catatonic and raw, 
  F                                          Am
I go downstairs and outside and you still get mail. 
  C                 C/B                    Am
A week after you died a package with your name on it came 
   G                    F                     G
and inside was a gift for our daughter you had ordered in secret 
    C                     G             Am      G
and collapsed there on the front steps I wailed. 
   F                   E                   A5 
A backpack for when she goes to school a couple years from now. 
          Bm                 C                    G                     Am
You were thinking ahead to a future you must have known deep down would not include you 
          G                           F                    G
though you clawed at the cliff you were sliding down, being swallowed into a 
C               G               Am    Am/G
silence that is bottomless and real. 
     G
It’s dumb 
                      F
and I don’t want to learn anything from this. 
     Am
I love you.
