Am So here we are, alone - Dm E Am our children have grown up and moved away. F Am living their own lives, they say... Fmaj7-5 G E It all seems very strange to me.verse b (same a):
I don't understand their ways: our children amaze me all the time and I often wonder why they make me feel so sad, and suddenly old.verse c:
Am Now we're left with an empty home Dm E from our nest all the birds have flown for foreign skies. Am We're discarded, of no further use, Dm E though we gave our kids all our youth and all our lives we really tried.verse d (same as a):
Now there's only my wife and me we used to have a family - now that's gone and only memories linger on... it all seems very wrong to me.verse e:
Am To our sorrows they were quite deaf Dm E and as soon as they could they left us to our tears. Am We always tried to teach what was good - Dm E yes, we gave our kids all we could through all the years.verse f:
Am So here we are at last; Dm E Am the time has gone so fast and so have my dreams. F E I simply don't know what it all means, Fmaj7-5 this pointless passage through the night, G Esus4 E this autumn-time, this walk upon the water...ending:
Am I wonder how long G it will be till this song F E Am is sung by our own sons and daughters?
