Love for a child Chord Guitar

           A 
There's a picture on my kitchen wall
C#m
Looks like Jesus and his friends involved
F# Bm
There's a party getting started in the yard
Bm Dm A C#m F#m
There's a couple getting steamy in the car parked in the drive
Bm E E
Was I too young to see this with my eyes?

A
By the pool last night, apparently
C#m
The chemicals weren't mixed properly
F# Bm
You hit your head and then forgot your name
Bm Dm A C#m F#m
And then you woke up at the bottom by the drain
Bm E E
And now your altitude and memory's a shame


A Bm C#m Bm
What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
A Bm
With a little bit more of some innocence
C#m Bm A
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
C# D Dm
It's okay to be easily ignored
Dm (D E Fp notes on the A string)
I like to believe it was all about
A
love for a child
C#m
And when the house was left in shambles
F# Bm
Who was there to handle all the broken bits of glass
Bm Dm A C#m F#m
Was it mom who put my dad out on his ass or the other way around
Bm E E
Well I'm far too old to care about that now

It's kinda nice to work the floor since the divorce
G Bm A
I've been enjoying both my Christmases and my birthday cakes
G Bm A C#m
And taking drugs and making love at far too young an age
G
and they never check to see my grades
E E A
What a fool I'd be to start complaining now
