G        
I got your address from the phone book at the library
          Cmaj7
Wandered in, looked you up and you were there
G                                                          Cmaj7
Weird that you've been living, maybe, 2 miles away for the best part of 20 years
                    G
You must be, what, in your early forties now
             Cmaj7
If I remember,
                                 G
You were born in June or was it May?
                             Cmaj7 
Eisenhower was the president although it may have been JFK


G
Years of silence
    Cmaj7            G               Cmaj7
Not enough who could blame us giving up?
          Am              Cmaj7/E
Above the quiet there's a buzz

That's me trying


G                               Cmaj7
You still working in that store on ventura?
                           G
You still going with--no, that's not fair
                                    Cmaj7
I know I haven't been the very best of dads

I'll hold my hand up there
G                                                Cmaj7
The reason that I'm writing is that i'd like for us to meet

Get a little daughter dad action going soon
Am
We can put things behind us

Eat some pizza, drink some beer
Cmaj7
You still see your sister Lemli?

Bring her, too


G                 Cmaj7
Years of silence, not enough
          G               Cmaj7
Who could blame us giving up?
          Am              Cmaj7
Above the quiet there's a buzz

That's me trying

G Cmaj7 


But I don't want to talk about any of that bad stuff
Dm
Why I missed out on your wedding and your high school graduation
G
I'd like to explain, but I can't
Dm
So let's keep things neutral
         G
Stick to topics that won't bug us



How 'bout this?
Cmaj7
Let's choose a book and we'll read it before we meet
C
Then we can sit down at a restaurant 
                                                   Bbmaj7/F
Have a look at the menu and talk about it while we eat

See, if we never had a problem

Then that's what life would be like
G
Easy

Uncomplicated
Cmaj7
Cool


                                           G
So let's just pretend that the past didn't happen
                                      Cmaj7
I don't really like thriller as well.
G                          
I don't want to know if I've got grandchildren
                   Cmaj7
no need to tell me where I went wrong
                                    G                Cmaj7/E
I don't want to know what happened in your thirties

You wanna try 'cold mountain'?

Or is that too long??


G                      Cmaj7
Years of silence, not enough
          G               Cmaj7
Who could blame us giving up?
          Am              Cmaj7
Above the quiet there's a buzz
                 G/Cmaj7/G/Am/Cmaj7/E
That's me trying

I'm trying
