lyrics

Am
I'm sorry your mother
F C
was a useless alcoholic
Am
When she became pregnant
F C
we all cautiously thought this
Dm F
Would give her a reason to wise up
C
and finally live
Dm
maybe not get arrested
F C
maybe learn what a miracle is
Am F
a kid cannot know if his mother
C
has any sense
Am
She does what she does
F C
until she did what she did
Dm F
She'll never see you through the bottom
C
of that glass
Dm F
And you're
C
growin up fast (then tap chords twice)

Am
there's a carnival ride
F C
out on the edge of town
Am
Just two paper tickets
F C
and you get to ride around
Dm
in a big shiny ball
F C
that blurs everything that goes past
Dm F
there might be a line if it's good
C
but lines never last
Dm F
step right up little man
C
you're growin' up fast (tap chords twice)

Am
Some stories have edits
F C
I once heard people can change
Am F
to not ruin another life
C
with their terrible ways
Dm
Maybe things can get better
F C
Maybe it won't be that bad
Dm F
But you're almost a year old
C
And growin up fast
