husband's lament
lyrics|songsheet|recording|stereofield

the trials, the joys, little girls, little boys, they bring to me.
the thoughts that i had long before this time felt so differently.
and now i'm callin' your name.
i'm out callin' your name.
i'm out callin' so loud that i've found i don't feel the same.

lookin' for love wherever it comes--she can't seem to see.
man is a beast hunting his feast so helplessly
but give me that i'm callin' your name.
least i'm callin' your name.
i'm out callin' for your love--is it lost in shame?

is it you or the young two that take you away from me?
a daughter, a son, when i was the only one, you'd set me free.
won't you call out my name?
won't you call out my name?

won't you call out my name or have you found you don't feel the same?

i hear her callin' my name.
she's callin my name.
she's callin' my name, does it mean she still feels the same?
she feels the same
still feels the same.
she feels the same.
still feels the same

intro: harmonics, G--F (picking strings)

----Am----------G------------F-------------G----------Am-------G, Am, G
the trials, the joys, little girls, little boys, they bring to me.
----Am--------------G----------F-------------G--------Am--------G, Am, G
the thoughts that i had long before this time felt so differently.
----Am------G------------F-----G
and now i'm callin' your name.
Am------G------------F-----G
i'm out callin' your name.
Am------G----------F--------------G-------------Am-------G---F, G, Em, harmonic
i'm out callin' so loud that i've found i don't feel the same.

lookin' for love wherever it comes--she can't seem to see.
man is a beast hunting his feast so helplessly
but give me that i'm callin' your name.
least i'm callin' your name.
i'm out callin' for your love--is it lost in shame?

is it you or the young two that take you away from me?
a daughter, a son, when i was the only one, you'd set me free.
won't you call out my name?
won't you call out my name?

won't you call out my name or have you found you don't feel the same?

i hear her callin' my name.
she's callin my name.
she's callin' my name, does it mean she still feels the same?
she feels the same
still feels the same.
she feels the same.
still feels the same"i can't believe the beautiful things i've seen or where i've been.
