Your husband is watching

         G            D/F#      C       D/F#

From his portrait his eyes are looking down

       Em          B        Em D C

On the slipper and stocking

                 Am

Back against the bookcase

G             Em    C

Down upon the floor

            Am

Empty the decanter

F              D    G

Slur again for more

Is watching cartoons

In the morning he's looking up to me

           Em         B    Em D C

When we're in the bathroom

                Am

Sees me kissing mother

G                Em  C

Doesn't blink an eye

             Am

Asks alot of questions

Answers hard to find

Words are so few and far between

My arms reach to hold her

Hungry for the love

I've rescued from the grave

The future's ours to frame
