A                     E
Mom, I know I let you down
                D
And though you say the days are happy
           E
Why is the power off and I'm fucked up
    A                     E
And Mom, I know he's not around
               D
But don't you place the blame on me
       E
As you pour yourself another drink

[Chorus]
D                       E    A E
 I guess we are who we are
D                                            E    A E
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
D                        E
 Maybe we took this too far

[Verse I]
          A
I went in headfirst, never thinking about who what I said hurt
   E
In what verse, my Mom probably got it the worst, the brunt of it
   D                                                              E
But as stubborn as we are, did I take it too far, Cleaning Out My Closet

And all them other songs, but regardless I don't hate you
       A
Cause Ma, you're still beautiful to me, cause you're my Mom
       E
Though far be it for you to be calling, my house was Vietnam
        D
Desert Storm and both of us put together can form an atomic bomb
              E
Equivalent to Chemical Warfare, and forever we can drag this on and on
 A                                                     E
But, agree to disagree, that gift for me up under the Christmas tree

Don't mean shit to me, you're kicking me out, it's 15 degrees and
     D
It's Christmas Eve "little prick, just leave"

Ma let me grab my fucking coat
E
Anything to have each other's goats, why we always at each others throats
A
Especially when dad, he fucked us both, we're in the same fucking boat
E
 You'd think that it'd make us close (nope) Further away that drove us
D
 But together, headlights shine, a car full of belongings
            E
Still got a ways to go, back to grandma's house it's straight up the road
              A
And I was the man of the house, the oldest

So my shoulders carried the weight of the load
E
 Then Nate got taken away by the state at 8-years-old and
D                                                              E
 that's when I realized you were sick and it wasn't fixable or changable

And to this day we remained estranged and I hate it though, but

[Chorus]
D                       E    A E
 I guess we are who we are
D                                            E    A E
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
D                        E
 Maybe we took this too far

[Verse II]
A
 Cause to this day we remain estranged and I hate it though
E
 Cause you ain't even get to witness your grandbaby's growth
D                                                                 E
 But I'm sorry Mama for Cleaning Out My Closet, at the time I was angry

Rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to take it though, cause
A
 Now I know it's not your fault, and I'm not making jokes
E
 That song I no longer play at shows and
                                D
I cringe every time it's on the radio

And I think of Nathan being placed in a home
    E
And all the medicine you fed us and how I just wanted you to taste your own
   A                                                E
But now the medications taken over and your mental state's
                                                           D
Deteriorating slow and I'm way too old to cry, that shit's painful though

But Ma, I forgive you, so does Nathan, yo
E
All you did, all you said, you did your best to raise us both
A                                                         E
Foster care, that cross you bare, few may be as heavy as yours
                                                                  D
But I love you Debbie Mathers, oh what a tangled web we have cause

One thing I never asked was where the fuck my deadbeat dad was
E
 Fuck it I guess he had trouble keeping up with every address
A
 But I'd have flipped every mattress, every rock and desert cactus
E
 Own a collection of maps and followed my kids to the edge of the atlas
D
 Someone ever moved them from me, that you could bet your asses
E
 If I had to come down the chimney dressed as Santa, kidnap 'em
A                                                    E
 And although one has only met their grandma once you pulled up
                                                           D
In our drive one night, as we were leaving to get some hamburgers

Me, her and Nate, we introduced you, hugged you
           E
And as you left I had this overwhelming sadness
          A
Come over me as we pulled off to go our separate paths, and
           E
I saw your headlights as I looked back, and I'm mad I didn't get the chance
  D                                                        E
To thank you for being my mom and my dad, so Mom, please accept this
                                                       F
As a tribute I wrote ths on the jet I guess I had to get this off my chest
                                            G
I hope I get the chance to lay it 'fore I'm dead

The stewardess said to fasten my seatbelt, I guess we're crashing
A                                            E
 So if I'm not dreaming, I hope you get this message
                                                     D
That I'll always love you from afar, cause you're my Momma

[Chorus]
D                       E    A E
 I guess we are who we are
D                                            E    A E
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
D                        E
 Maybe we took this too far

[Bridge]
              A                   F#m
I want a new life, one without a cause
                     D                                E
So I'm coming home tonight, well, no matter what the cost
                      A                                  F#m
And if the plane goes down, or if the crew can't wake me up
                     D                          E
Just know that I'm alright, I was not afraid to die
                   A                               F#m
Oh even if there's songs to sing, my children will carry me
                     D                          E
Just know that I'm alright, I was not afraid to die
                          A
Because I put my faith in my little girls,
                   F#m
so I never say goodbye cruel world
                     D                         E
Just know that I'm alright, I am not afraid to die

D                       E    A E
 I guess we are who we are
D                                            E    A E
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
D                        E
 Maybe we took this too far
              A
I want a new life
