[Intro :] F G Am G C G

[Verse :]
F                G
The year moves on without you in it
Am             G
Now it is fall without you
F                                  G
I had to close the windows and doors without you coming through
Am                              G
I kept them open for as long as I could
C                G
But the baby got cold
          F          G
I watched the calendar bulldoze

[Instrumental :] F G Am G

    C                               G
This whole past summer was a lingering heat wave
             F                            G
And I remember late August, our open bedroom window
Going through your things with the fan blowing
And the sound of helicopters and the smell of smoke
       C                                        G                               F
From the forest fire that was growing, billowing just on the edge of town where we used to swim
       G                                          Am
They say a natural, cleansing devastation burning the understory, erasing trails
There is no end
But when I'm kneeling in the heat
Throwing out your underwear
The devastation is not natural or good
You do belong here
F                  G
I reject nature, I disagree

In the hazy light of forest fire smoke
I looked across at the refineries
                   F                            G
And thought that the world was actually constantly ending
                              F                                          G
And the smell and roar of the asphalt truck that was idling just out the window, tearing up our street
C                G
I missed you, of course
                            F                               G
And I remember thinking the last time it rained here you were alive still
             F                            G
And that this same long heat that I was in contained you
            C                         G
And in this same heat I open the window next to you
On your last morning
            G                            F            G
So you could breathe and then so you could ghost away
                        C          G
And now so the room will hopefully
    F          Em
Stop whispering

    F                   G
The grind of time I'm not keeping up with
    Am                            G
The leaf on the ground pokes at my slumbering grief
F                        G          C
Walking around, severed, lumbering
    Em    F          G
But slowly sovereignty reasserts itself
       Am          G
I don't want it though
       Am          G
And betrayal whines
       Am       G
Who and how could I
