[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
                                  F
Going through your things with the fan blowing
                            G
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
G
There is no end
            C
But when I'm kneeling in the heat
                G
Throwing out your underwear
                      F
The devastation is not natural or good
G
You do belong here
F                  G
I reject nature, I disagree

                   C
In the hazy light of forest fire smoke
                      G
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
            F
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
Am/F
Live?
