lyrics

[G, Gmaj7, Em]
Where do the boys go when it gets cold out
Do they have a place to sleep?
Where did their mums go? Did they get taken
Or had they had enough of taking care of things?
It's hard to say if someone's at fault
If I don't do anything is it my fault?

Where do the girls go when they feel frightened
Do they have something to eat?
Where did their dads go? Did they get taken
Or had they had enough of taking care of things?

[G, Gmaj7, Em, Cadd9, G, Gmaj7, Em]
I've gotta find a way to make this feel okay
When rock bottom for me is routine for someone else

[G, Gmaj7, Em, Cadd9]
I'm gonna take care of things
There's things I need to sort out
I'm gonna take care of things
Cause they're not where I want them right now
I know there's good in everything
And it'll show itself when you're gentle to it
I'm gonna take care of things

[G, Gmaj7, Em]
Where does my mind go when it gets stupid?
Is there anyone in there?
Where did my friends go? Did they get taken
Or had they had enough of going to therapy?
Sat in a cold room, The corners feel friendly
I think they'll take care of me
My brothers are circles, My sisters quadrilaterals
And they're all so pretty

[G, Gmaj7, Em, Cadd9]
I'm gonna take care of things
There's things I need to sort out
I'm gonna take care of things
They're not where I need them right now
I know there's good in everything
And it'll show itself when you're gentle to it
I'm gonna take care of things

There are a lot of young homeless people in my town. Living here for over 10 years I've watched them grow older, and noticed more and more people sleeping rough. It's really sad that in a city, a WORLD, filled with rich people, so many abandoned houses, and so much food being wasted every day, there are still people who manage to go over a decade without a home. It really shows there's something very wrong with the way our society functions. It puts a lot of my own problems in perspective, and I've learnt to feel a lot more grateful and happy with the life I have, and motivated to make the most of it. I'm really so incredibly fortunate to have a roof over my head and a hot meal in my belly every night.
