    wondering why you’re not home,

     C                                  F

    girl, I walk beside you, left before you tried to

    work out all the unknowns.

     C                                       Dm

    everything that we worked out,

    something in her wording I cannot help searching

     C             G          C

    for what memory found.

    for some solitary sound.
