Dmaj7                         E
  I sit and watch you reading with your head low
Dmaj7                            E
  I wake and watch you breathing with your eyes closed
Dmaj7
  I sit and watch you
E                               Dmaj7
  I notice everything you do or don't do
                       E
  You're so much older and wiser, and I
 
Chorus:
  A                                   Dmaj7
  I wait by the door like I'm just a kid
                                Gbm
  Use my best colors for your portrait
                             E
  Lay the table with the fancy xxxx
                     A
  And watch you tolerate it
                                 Dmaj7
  If it's all in my head tell me now
                             Gbm
  Tell me I've got it wrong somehow
                              E
  I know my love should be celebrated
              Dmaj7
  But you tolerate it

Dmaj7              E                                     Dmaj7
  I sit and listеn, I polish plates until they gleam and glistеn
                       E
  You're so much older and wiser, and I

  If it's all in my head tell me now
                             A

Bridge:
                                              Dmaj7
  While you were out building other worlds, where was I?
                                                 Gbm
  Where's that man who'd throw blankets over my barbed wire?
                                     E
  I made you my temple, my mural, my sky
                                   Gbm
  Now I'm begging for footnotes in the story of your life
                           Dmaj7
  Drawing hearts in the byline
                                      Gbm
  Always taking up too much space or time
                                           E
  You assume I'm fine, but what would you do if I
 
Chorus:
A                             Dmaj7
  Break free and leave us in ruins
 
  Took this dagger in me and removed it
A                              E
  Gain the weight of you then lose it
                       A
  Believe me, I could do it
                                 Dmaj7
  If it's all in my head tell me now
                             A
  Tell me I've got it wrong somehow
                              E
  I know my love should be celebrated
               Gbm
  But you tolerate it
