And your youngest is out fighting a war. [Intro] G [Verse 1] G C D G So you come on home, walk through the door. So you stop and watch her and ask what she's looking for. So you come on home, walk through the door. And your youngest is out fighting a war. If he's gone because of war for you, in which you rather be true. Lyrics to 'This Old Routine' by First Aid Kit. She's in the kitchen searching through the drawers.

She says she's not sure. C D Em She's in the kitchen searching *** Standard EADGBE Tuning. Klara Söderberg explained to MTV UK: "This Old Routine is about this man who is looking at his family and realizing that they're not communicating, just living their lives and the love is gone - there's just nothing there."
