Hammer+A(Slide) A(Slide) A/D Walk
Here we are, what is left of a husband and a wife
With four good kids who have a way of gettin' on with their life.
And I'm not old but I'm gettin' a whole lot older everyday.
E A/D Walk
It's too late to keep from goin' crazy, I've got to get away.
The reasons that I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love
And I understand that lovin' a man shouldn't have to be this rough
But you ain't the only one who feels like this world left you far behind
Bm D A Bm D
I don't know why you gotta be angry all the time.
The boys are strong now, a spittin' image of you when you were young.
I hope someday they can see past what you have become.
And I remember everytime I said I'd never leave
Bm A/D Walk
But what I can't live with is memories of the way you used to be.
BREAK = A D Bm A 2X
Twenty years have came and went since I walked out of your door.
I never quite made it back to the one I was before.
And God it hurts me to think of you for the light in your eyes was gone.
Bm A/D Walk
And sometimes I don't know why this old world can't leave well enough alone.
